In the past week, three mass shootings have devastated our country — two of which took place in just the last 48 hours. Just a week ago, three people lost their lives and 13 more were injured after a shooting at the Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California. But the tragedy of homegrown, disgruntled white terrorists didn’t stop there.
Yesterday, at least 20 innocent human beings lost their lives while 26 more were severely wounded after a gunman opened fire in a WalMart in El Paso, Texas — where officials are struggling to even get a legitimate victim count, as many of them are too terrified of deportation to seek help. And not even 24 hours later, yet another tragedy befell our country, 1,500 miles away in Dayton, Ohio — where another white terrorist rained fire through a popular night club, killing 9 and wounding 27.
Altogether, that’s 32 innocent lives lost, 66 wounded.
And what is our president doing you may ask? Well, he’s certainly not working to pass gun reform laws, declaring a national emergency for that absolute epidemic that’s rocking through our nation, or even visiting the areas affected by these catastrophes.
No. He’s sending out half-ass, obligatory tweets that he’s quickly burying with MMA congratulations and 6-month-old retweets, crashing MAGA weddings, and heading his ass to the golf course for a little R&R — we’re sure in hopes of avoiding all of the people that are ready to give him an earful.
Trump’s not on his way to El Paso or Dayton to honor the shooting victims. He’s not in the Oval Office meeting with White House officials to combat the gun violence epidemic. And he’s not making sure McConnell passes gun reform immediately. Trump’s golfing. Because he’s useless.

He’s not even condemning these attacks for what they are — white supremacist terrorist attacks.
But then again, why would he? After all, the NRA paid for him to be where he’s at. He’d much rather continue to declare national emergencies surrounding our borders and “illegal immigrants” than to admit that our people are dying at an alarming rate at the hands of none other than homegrown white dudes with an affinity for Trump.
While Donald may be fleeing to his golf course in an attempt to avoid the backlash, he certainly can’t run from Twitter users that are more than ready to share their thoughts on the matter with him:
2 mass shootings in under 24 hours and Donald Trump is golfing.

He wanted this violence. He’s implementing Steve Bannon’s plan who said you have to tear it all down, then rebuild. He’s literally gutting America – financially, institutions, and stoking violence – so he can rebuild a more Trumpian America. This was always the plan.

This morning, President* Trump met with mothers separated from their children by gun violence and made an impassioned plea for Moscow Mitch to send the House’s Gun Safety Reform Bill to the Senate Floor.

Nothing gets Donald Trump’s little cock harder than golfing when people are dying in the streets.

Overcome with emotion after the Sandy Hook massacre, President Obama cried while addressing the nation.
In the span of 24 hours, we’ve had 2 mass shootings. But don’t expect any show of emotion from trump.
He doesn’t get “the feels.”

As a child I always thought of the President as the father of our country that lived all of us and would keep us safe from harm. I’m a old lady now and for the first time in my life I feel afraid for my country I served. I want to fight as I weep! God help us ‼️
