❝ On Aug. 8, 2019, the official Twitter account for the first lady of the United States, Melania Trump, tweeted a series of photos from the president’s visit to University Medical Center of El Paso in the wake of a mass shooting that killed at least 22 and wounded scores more. One of those photos, described by some hospital staff members as showing “an absence of empathy,” controversially shows President Donald Trump with a wide grin giving the thumbs-up sign next to the first lady, who is holding a baby…
❝ From the First Lady’s twitter account, this appears to be the baby both of whose parents died shielding him from the El Paso shooter. The baby in question was discharged the day before and brought back for Trumps visit…
The child’s uncle says his brother was ““a big Trump supporter,” and that the uncle wanted Trump “to know our family stands with the president.””
Getting the big thumb from our fake president.
This was Friday evening.
Here’s what I get now!
Artificial Intelligence surely is smarter than the fools voting Republican.
This is the end of his article:
❝ These mass shootings have to stop, and the best way to start the process is to stop those committing them from being able to buy their tools of their terror.
So it’s time you grew a pair President Trump, stand up to the NRA and do what REALLY needs to be done.
❝ As you said today, you banned bump fire stock after the Las Vegas massacre.
Now you must go much further.
That means a ban on assault weapons, a ban on high-capacity magazines, and the introduction of mandatory background checks on all gun purchases.
❝ Do it now, or stand condemned as a coward.
And here’s the link to the beginning.
❝ The original tweet was posted at 6:35 p.m. on Saturday — hours after news of the shooting started coming out, and just 24 minutes before McConnell tweeted his prayers to the victims and first responders in the El Paso shooting…
Just in case you think #MoscowMitch is less of a scumbag than the fake president.
Fake President’s teleprompter
❝ There are few recorded instances of Trump actually wearing glasses, but many of the ones that do exist appear to have been taken when Trump thought no one could see…Might this all be because Trump himself is in desperate need of glasses? How much of the president’s erratic behavior could be because he simply prefers to be blind than to display any sort of weakness?…
❝ Another curiosity of the Trump presidency has been his approach to stairs. Almost every time he exits Air Force One, Trump can be spotted white-knuckling the guardrail as he stares intently at his feet. And in 2017, The Times of London reported that widely mocked photo in which Trump grabbed Theresa May’s hand was due explicitly to his fear of stairs…
❝ There’s no question that our president’s brain is broken, and that his mental acuity isn’t anywhere near what it once was. But perhaps it all isn’t quite as bad as we thought. Perhaps Donald Trump just needs to wear his goddamn glasses.
I spotted the fear of stairs long ago. My own eyes aren’t especially bad for my age; but, I also have [idiopathic] pedal neuropathy. There’s no associated illness – like diabetes. Just an old geezer with a percentage of overcooked nerves in my feet. Which is why I carry a cane on my daily walks. Never use it, just carry it in case I need to use it. BTW, About 6% of Americans are in the same boat. No big deal if you’re smart enough to deal with it and don’t let vanity get in the way.
