Donald Trump did a whirlwind tour at a Florida hospital to meet with a small number of survivors and first responders of the Stoneman Douglas Highs School mass shooting before he headed back to Mar-a-Lago to spend the weekend partying at the members-only club. Seventeen people were killed and 14 more injured only 40 miles away and Donald Trump was all smiles, back to posing with his deplorable paying guests.

Instead of speaking with the outraged survivors of the last mass shooting, the White House has announced some loosely defined “listening session.”

From CNN:

The White House announced that a “listening session” would be held with high school students and teachers Wednesday. The White House said more information would be made available closer to the event.
Alex Wind, a survivor, told CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield that he did not plan to attend and that the President needed to reach out to the students.
“If Donald Trump wants to listen to us, he should have taken the first invitation,” Wind said. “We are not going to come to him. He is going to need to come to us.”
Emma Gonzalez, speaking in the same interview, said she suspected his scheduled listening session could be a sign Trump does not want to face outraged victims of the shooting.
“The fact that he has organized this just proves that he’s scared of us and that he doesn’t want to have to face us,” Gonzalez said.

Meanwhile, these teens continue to show bravery and resolve to get the country moving forward on sensible gun laws, forcibly telling politicians they are either with the children or they are with the future mass murderers. Watch these kids. They are the future. “If you can’t get elected without taking money from child murderers, why are you running?”

Instead of meeting with these teens, feeling their pain, hearing their cries, Trump was reportedly surveying his guests while making the rounds at a Mar-a-Lago disco party, polling to see if he should act on gun control. Apparently the uber-wealthy, paying guests at a members-only club, surrounded by taxpayer-funded Secret Service protection, told him not to act because while victims lay in the hospital and 17 funerals get underway, Donald Trump gets back to the important business of the day: golf.

Have a good time, everybody.

  1. Did anyone really expect that he would do the right thing? He doesn’t have it in him. He’s a lame excuse for a human being and that doesn’t change because he’s the president.
