One of President Trump’s loyal fans, dubbed “Bikergirl4Trump” on Twitter, posted a sign targeted towards former First Lady Michelle Obama asking where she was three days after Katrina. Then, she answered the question with: “She was shopping!”
Fact: Hurricane Katrina: August 23-31, 2005.
Fact: President Obama: January 20, 2009 – January 20, 2017.
Unbelievable! 😂 pic.twitter.com/QglKJBOglm

There are two things wrong with this picture: 1) Michelle Obama wasn’t the First Lady when Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005, Laura Bush was. And, 2) the picture on her sign is of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Here’s a better image of the picture:
Our first thought was this must be a joke, but upon looking further at her page, and her other anti-liberal postings, we reached the conclusion that Bikergirl4Trump is really outraged Michelle Obama didn’t show up to help out for Hurricane Katrina.
She describes herself as a “Proud American, Lady Patriot, NRA member, photographer, motorcycle cyclist, and a boater.”
Interestingly enough, she also re-tweeted President Trump from earlier in the year showing him in the Oval Office with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. You would think she would be able to make a connection between the two photographs and establish she looks nothing like Michelle Obama. Other than, of course, that both women just so happen to be black.
Anyways, we still can’t believe this is a real posting. Are Trump supporters really this stupid? We’d like to think they just have a difference of opinion, but maybe some of them are.
And – BikerGirl isn’t the only one. Apparently, many Republicans took to social media to attack former President Obama about his Katrina response, forgetting, you know, that he wasn’t actually president then.
Looking up “Obama Katrina” is a fun game for discovering people who somehow have zero memory beyond four years ago. pic.twitter.com/Va4r6PFNhs

You can just imagine the ridicule this lady received on social media – it was intense.
Ok LISTEN UP: 2001 during 9/11 – BUSH was in office. 2005 during KATRINA – BUSH was in office. Please stop the Bullsh*t!!!!

Another trumper that believes President Obama was in charge during Katrina. So sad.

I guess all black people look alike! That was Condoleeza Rice and Michelle wasn't the First Lady 12 years ago!

Funny how repubs have blocked out the entire disaster that was the bush presidency.

Attention trump people! For the 100th time. Bush was president during Katrina. Not Obama. Katrina = Bush! 💁
