Donald Trump finally went to visit the victims of the mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio — which took the lives of nine people including the shooter’s sister — and is now en route to El Paso, Texas — where yet another mass shooting took place not 48 hours before the tragedy struck Dayton — which left 22 people dead.
I have no doubt that his trips to these disaster-stricken areas were, and will be begrudging ones, at best — considering that the city of El Paso actually penned a letter to Donald telling him to stay the hell away. And I’d venture to say that Ohio wasn’t any more excited for his appearance than Texas was.
But you would think that, as president of the United States, the man would be able to take criticism in stride and offer support to the citizens that he swore to protect. But since this is reality tv wash-up Donald Trump that we’re talking about here, we had no such luck.
It seems that Donald couldn’t even wait until he’d made his way back to the White House before he took to his Twitter account on the commute between Ohio and Texas to bash and berate former Vice President and Democratic 2020 hopeful, Joe Biden.
Why’s he so butthurt at Biden this time, you ask?
Well, because Biden called him out on his bullshit, of course.
It’s no secret that mass shootings in this country have increased exponentially since Trump took office. And it’s certainly no secret as to why, either.
Today, Biden earned himself some serious air time when various networks broadcasted his speech in which he publicly denounced the president’s ongoing behavior and rhetoric that it continually leading to mass shootings all over our nation — stating that Trump has “fanned the flames of white supremacy.”
So, of course, Donald had to break out his handy, dandy Twitter account to launch an attack against Biden for telling the truth and disparage the media for covering it.
“Watching Sleepy Joe Biden making a speech. Sooo Boring! The LameStream Media will die in the ratings and clicks with this guy. It will be over for them, not to mention the fact that our Country will do poorly with him. It will be one big crash, but at least China will be happy!” Trump’s immature tweet read.

You would think that at least 31 people dead in the matter of a weekend would cause any decent human being to in a bit more somber mood. However, I don’t suppose this is a decent human being we’re dealing with here at all.
