As victims of Alabama’s deadly tornados pick up their lives, POTUS went on a bible signing tour that went as far as hugging the same type of folks he has reportedly used the term dumb southerner against and even mocked their southern drawl.

Just a few days before the devastating tornado which killed dozens in Alabama, he was making fun of their accent. How does a president make fun of people he swore to protect and represent?
