The president has sunk to a new low, matched only by the “very fine people on both sides” statement he released after Heather Heyer was murdered in Charlottesville two years ago.

Since none of the victims still in the hospital would meet with him, his staff had a 2-month-old infant who had been discharged brought back to the hospital. In a picture posted on the first lady’s Twitter account, the president is flashing a thumbs-up and grinning.

The baby’s parents were both murdered while shielding him during the El Paso massacre by a white supremacist who specifically targeted Mexicans whom he believed were invading America, echoing the president’s words.

The White House had the gall to claim that “It wasn’t about a photo op.”

Commentator Brian Klaas tweeted, “I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who would think the appropriate response would be flashing a smile and thumbs up. Something is wrong with him.”

And something is wrong with you and the rest of your far-left pals that pollute the paper with your warped, worthless comments.

Your comment applies to you sir! Just look into the mirror!

Why do demokkkrats forget there were two shootings? Ohio ring a bell, that's right because he was a pocahontas fan and loved antifa that's why. Demokkkrats get dumber with every event they create. You will be with the green party. Look at your hero madcow and her ratings same for your party. Only thing that may save you is your usual ballot stuffing and voter intimidation. Look out even Kalifornia is rebelling!

bootsie, over the last two weekends, 102 people were shot in demokkkratically controlled Chicago - 15 were died, including an 8 year old girl playing at a park. I wonder why this wasn’t plastered all over the news? Is it because the demokkkrats created the mess? One can only wonder....

Meanwhile ... back to the topic of the letter ...

bishopsboy

Oops.....15 died...

If you don't have a response, you just change the subject, right?

Can you Democrats become more hate filled and jealous of one man who has done nothing wrong and is trying very hard to better your life and mine? The answer is yes! The most vile, disgusting, lying, president we've ever had was Bill Clinton and the Democrats stood by this proven liar, womanizer, hypocrite, draft dodging a**, all the way through, but think President Trump is a bad person. Donald Trump has worked hard his entire life and yes he has been divorced as have 75% of Americans in this country. He was a billionaire playboy who liked beautiful women but he never raped one and never beat any of them up! He was no different as a young man than any man on here would have been with billions of dollars and access to thousands of pretty girls daily. I always have tried to see both sides in just about everything but I honestly cannot believe or even listen anymore when a liberal speaks. They have told so many lies and done so many things to harm this country it is scary to think they should ever gain any power ever again!

I am constantly amazed at your "take" on Trump. You do not see what is right in front of your eyes. You do not hold him accountable for past decisions and missteps. You make excuses for some horrible things he has done. I do not hate Trump; I certainly am not jealous of him. But I find his lack of truthfulness, lack of knowledge and wisdom, and lack of genuine empathy for people less fortunate than he make him totally unsuited to lead this country. I cannot image how you manage to overlook these elements of his character.

DANT

What horrible things are you talking about? His lack of knowledge in what? Donald Trump has helped more people less fortunate than him more than any president we've ever had..period! President Trump has done more for the poor and minorities than any president so far and in less than 3 years. If you're not jealous or don't hate him then why do you not talk about all the good he's done instead of trying to tear him down? I think you are not being truthful or haven't researched Donald Trumps past about what he's done! Have you read his book?

bishopsboy

DANT, all the same traits you used to describe Bill Clinton apply to Hillary Clinton as well (liar, misogynist, hypocrite - well I guess draft dodger doesn't apply), and Susan still supported her wholeheartedly in 2016 because there was a "D" beside her name. It kinda makes you wonder about her standards for accountability doesn't it?

sbsheridan

STOP! You don't know if I supported Clinton wholeheartedly. And if I did, you don't know why. Stop thinking that the world is just like the pictures you carry around in your head. It isn't. The subject of this string is President Trump, not Bill Clinton, not Hillary Clinton, not Barack Obama. President Trump used a tragedy as a photo op, and that is outrageous. End of story.

DANT

sb....That is a lie but you're going to run with it because CNN planted a picture in your head that you can't or won't erase! Why would Trump need a photo op? He regularly has 30,000 plus people waiting every where he goes unlike Biden or Warren who have maybe 200!

newshound

And your sick liberals used a tragedy to spread lies and other filth as well as neat the gun drums AGAIN!

DANT

bishopsboy......amen!

Driller

Dant and Others, KEEP ON CHEERLEADING!!! I'm impressed!!!

Driller

Dant Look at the names you called Bill Clinton and I'm not taking up for him , but doesn't the names you called him fit Con Don also? Womanizer Yes Hypocrite Yes Liar Yes Draft dodger Yes I hate to inform you Clinton and Con Don are cut out of the same cloth. With all the examples of Con Don lying I am just wondering if you finally realized that Con Don is a liar?

LVW

From Trump's perspective, everything is about Trump.

mattnamyj

After President Trump's re-election landslide victory the hate from the left will only get worse. It will be entertaining to read all the stories about Russia, hookers, kids in cages and secret meetings with white supremacists along with whatever else these weak minded liberal drones can dream up. Trump 2020!
