The internet is unforgiven and this time they used Barack Obama and other former U.S. Presidents, as well as Hillary Clinton, to take a jab at Donald Trump.

The current American President was supposed to pay a visit to honor fallen U.S. soldiers at a cemetery in France as part of his trip to the country.

Ultimately, Trump decided to cancel the visit due to weather difficulties, but Twitter users quickly rushed in to show that past leaders didn't let the rain get in their way.

The visit to the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery was supposed to have taken place on Saturday, November 10, 2018, but the pouring rain seems to have stopped Trump in his tracks.

EXAMPLES OF RESPECT

This decision stirred a lot of controversies and prompted some people online to remind others that leaders such as Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton still paid their respects to fallen soldiers and veterans during storms.

The best example of this took place in 2010; Obama was determined to finish his Memorial Day speech at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery, but the rain just kept on falling.

BRAVING THE ELEMENTS

Obama stood in the rain, completely drenched, and addressed the crowd by saying 'a little rain never hurt anybody but we don’t want anybody struck by lightning.'

It was only after the weather got worse that Obama decided to call it quits and advised people to take shelter. Still, he stayed behind to personally meet and greet several military families at the ceremony.

TRUMP'S ATTACK ON CALIFORNIA

But while Trump didn't visit the cemetery, he was quite busy blaming the state of California for the dangerous wildfires taking place, which he attributed to 'poor forest management.'

According to the President, there is absolutely no reason for the fires to reach such critical points and threatened to cut federal fundings to the state if something wasn't done to 'remedy' the situation.
