Trump Finds a Way to Visit Tragic Scene and Make It About HIM

Trump is one of the few people outside my ex-wife who can leave even a word spigot like myself speechless. Kinking my hose is different than the capacity to surprise, because Trump’s ability to visit a scene of unrelenting grief and talk about himself is his least surprising behavior. Weep: After tuning into Fox News and One America News Network, Trump tweeted about “Radical Left Democrats,” his political nemeses like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, the “Fake News” that he’s “up against,” and the specter of “ANTIFA” street fighters. Later in the day, he railed against Democrats for negatively portraying the reception he received at a hospital (though they did no such thing) and—once more—cable news hosts for being less than glowing in their coverage. It underscored a reality that’s become obvious to anyone who has ever worked for or even casually observed Trump: He’ll find a way to make nearly any national tragedy into an airing of his personal grievances, and neither he nor virtually anything else will change in the process. Trump on his very own has sapped the moral authority of the oval office, he has made presidential visits to scenes of tragedy into scenes of sick comedy. He cannot do what president’s are supposed to do, be a representative of us, a reflection of ourselves, someone Americans can aspire to be. But all of that requires someone willing – even in the most awful of circumstances – to forget for a moment their own selfish needs. Trump wills for something different, always, his needs surpass all. This includes rejection of representing ALL Americans. I truly do not understand why he even goes anymore. Some might think: “Well, maybe Trump supporters appreciate his presence.” But I would argue that Trump supporters support him precisely because he has no empathy. They love that he doesn’t care about family separation, or minorities, or even victims of crime. The Trump-voting families of victims in El Paso likely don’t feel any empathy from Trump. They likely noted his presence and then turned to friends. He added nothing, and they expected nothing, but will not hold it against him. None supporters? That is something entirely different, he added to their pain. At Sandy Hook, President Obama hugged family members, he shed tears. Some of the family members  may not have voted for him, but they knew he hurt along with them, and in doing so, he did speak for a nation. In South Carolina, Obama visited the black church as only Obama could, and surprised those gathered by leading them in Amazing Grace. He understood his environment, and what they needed from him. He understood what we all needed. Amazing grace indeed, personified. This president lacks the ability or desire to stand in someone else’s shoes, never mind represent the nation’s better angels. No one likes having to “be there” among people feeling everyone’s worst nightmare. But we go, and the president goes, because that is what it means to be human. Animals do not comfort each other over a loss, or at least most don’t. I cannot speak for dogs. They, too, seem to understand better angels. There is a lesson in there somewhere. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t appreciate dogs. **** God’s peace, y’all. Especially to the grieving everywhere, about anyone. I […]
