President Obama is not likely to cut short his Martha’s Vineyard summer vacation to tour the flooding damage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, CBS This Morning reports.

“Despite calls for President Obama to come here to Louisiana to this area, survey the damage for himself, he is unlikely to cut short his New England vacation to see all these floodwaters affecting communities like this one,” reporter Manuel Bojorquez said, water up to his kneecaps.

Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards defended Obama’s response to the disaster, saying he had no complaints about the state’s partnership with the federal government.
