Proving once again he is incapable of doing what’s appropriate under the circumstances, Donald Trump offered up the following tweet to grieving New Zealanders left to cope with the deadliest mass shooting in their country’s history:
“My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques. 49 innocent people have so senselessly died, with so many more seriously injured. The U.S. stands by New Zealand for anything we can do. God bless all!”
Even a copywriter for Hallmark would have been able to tell Trump you offer your deepest sympathy or sincere sympathy.
This is what you offer someone who’s just gotten engaged or moved into a new home!
Yet after defending white-nationalist protestors in Charlottesville last year, saying, “You also had some very fine people on both sides,” did you seriously expect anything else?
Trump is boxed in. He can’t even fake sincere regret. He knows he has to tread lightly so as not to offend his bigoted, xenophobic, islamophobic supporters.
Here is a tweet offered by a real President:
“Michelle and I send our condolences to the people of New Zealand. We grieve with you and the Muslim community. All of us must stand against hatred in all its forms.”
I am sure Donald Trump absolves himself of any responsibly for this latest, deadly hate crime even though the suspected shooter praised Trump as “a symbol of renewed white identity and common purpose.”
Let’s face it. Donald Trump is not only the biggest threat to our national security, but to that of every other country on this planet.
Nancy, you need to rethink your, “I’m not for impeachment.” Unless that is just one clever political ploy!
