Lankford Says It’s Time the Nation Knew of the Midwest Wildfire Disaster

Lankfspeech

Oklahoma U.S. Sen. James Lankford figured this week it was time the rest of the nation—-maybe the East Coast residents—should be made aware of the wildfire devastation in Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas.

He took to the Senate floor to deliver a nearly 9-minute long speech, describing in detail of the devastation he has personally witnessed.  In order to make his point, the Senator told the senate the wildfires destroyed an area the size of the state of Rhode Island, yet many Americans are unaware of the disaster.

The style and passion of his delivery are evident in the speech.
