Trump Hurt, Confused Over Insufficient Praise For El Paso Trip

https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2019/08/donald-trump-el-paso-hospital-visit

The president apparently thought he should’ve been nominated for sainthood for his response to the mass shooting, and reportedly threw a fit on Air Force One over not getting more “credit.”

By Bess Levin August 8, 2019


Despite no one wanting him to come, Donald Trump traveled on Wednesday to El Paso, Texas, where a gunman killed 22 people over the weekend after posting an anti-immigrant manifesto that could’ve been cribbed from one of the president’s rallies. The purpose of the trip was to gin up some good press for Trump after he was largely blamed for inspiring the massacre, but, of course, the poster child for narcissistic personality disorder couldn’t keep it together and act like a human for more than a few minutes. Instead, he used a trip to the hospital where victims were being treated to lash out at Beto O’Rourke, calling the 2020 hopeful “crazy” and lying about one of his favorite subjects: crowd sizes. .....................................................


The Washington Post reports that Trump threw a giant hissy fit on Air Force One because news cameras had not accompanied him in the hospital, causing coverage of the visit to be dominated by his foes....................................................................

While the president’s aides explained to reporters that cameras were kept out of the hospital due to logistical and privacy concerns, two White House officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said there were concerns that they could capture an impolitic moment or the president making an insensitive comment.

Which, of course, is exactly what happened. A senior administration official subsequently characterized the trip as “not ideal,” which feels more like a way to describe a new hire’s request to push back their start date, or a roast chicken coming out dry, than a president’s decision to trash talk his opponents to hospital staffers who’ve spent the past four days trying to ensure people don’t succumb to injuries suffered in a mass shooting. In fact, the only way the visit could’ve been less ideal is if Trump had stood over a hospital bed making victims tell him who they voted for in 2016, and then offered one of his trademark pieces of mouth sewage. “This guy says didn’t vote for me,” you can practically hear him saying. “Probably wishes he did, but that’s okay, that’s alright. You know I could have him transferred to a shittier hospital. Not that I would do that, other presidents would’ve done that. I wouldn’t do that. Maybe I’d think about it but I wouldn’t do that.”

He wants everyone to suffer, and he's never going to change his ways, so let us all rejoice in his moments of despair until he reaches the end of the rope.

10. I mean you know he's surrounded himself with yes-men when...

Nobody in his entourage has the courage or the intelligence to pull him aside and say "Uhm Mr. President we know you don't know how humans express empathy but for your own sake just stop grinning and sticking your thumbs in the air like an idiot in a commercial for erectile dysfunction until we get back on the plane."

13. Grinning thumbs-up with this orphaned baby. He really

must qualify as a sociopath.

I normally don't badmouth her, but she couldn't have been much of a person before-Trump, and now at best she must be a hollowed-out, amoral clotheshorse of a human being. How else to explain how an unlimited wardrobe budget could be worth being part of this?

19. I 100% believed this was Borowitz before clicking.

Trump's New Reality (TM C R) is outstripping satire at a truly alarming pace. Borowitz, Tom Tomorrow, Bors, Bolling, Lubchansky, they all have no chance to keep up with the absurdity that is the current White House.

25. He is one twisted sister

He said he could should someone on the street and get away with it. Now he wants praise for visiting the wounded and the scene of mass murder. What is he thinking? People should be killed so the rest of us can praise Trump?

His enthusiasm for more Weapons of Mass Murder is pathological. This man is crazy in every meaning and at every level. This sounds like a prelude to concentration camps for us all.

34. Standard-Issue God Emperor Dummy Boy moment

there were concerns that they could capture an impolitic moment or the president making an insensitive comment


...So even after banishing the press, God Emperor Dummy Boy made the most tone-deaf idiot move imaginable, and then purposefully disseminated it to the press as if it were a win.

Remember when everyone was so concerned about Hillary's judgment and temperament?

35. Send him a message on a postcard

"Your stunt with the baby in El Paso was disgraceful. You are unworthy of the presidency -- resign now."

I know he doesn't read anything, just watches Faux Newz, and will not resign. If he did resign, he would be on the track to prison.

But, his public affairs office does count expressions of approval and disapproval. I send postcards because no neutral polling service asks me for my opinion.

39. Our Indivisible group holds Postcard Parties twice a month.

Just added a third one because a local group of environmentally-concerned seniors expressed interest. Our Postcard Party team went to their senior living center last month to help them set it up, and they promptly asked to have it once a month! The next one’s this weekend and I’m looking forward to attending!
