Two days ago, our country suffered the seventh deadliest mass shooting in our nation’s history. Seventeen teenagers were gunned down by a sadistic killer with ties to a white supremacist groups; parents are mourning as the nation reels in shock and horror.
During these dark times, we would normally look to the President for leadership and comfort; but it could not be more obvious that the unhinged narcissist does not share our pain.
The President flew to Florida today, ostensibly to meet with the victims of the Marjorie Stoneman school shooting – but made his real intentions clear when he skipped the high school and went straight to his luxurious estate at Mar-a-lago.
I will be leaving for Florida today to meet with some of the bravest people on earth – but people whose lives have been totally shattered. Am also working with Congress on many fronts.

His cover was blown by none other than his own idiot son, Eric, who posted a video of Marine One landing at the opulent mansion’s helipad, which was paid for with taxpayer dollars.
This marks the 126th day Trump has spent at a Trump Organization-branded property and the 96th day he’s spent at a golf property.
While the community of Parkland struggles to come to grips with the unimaginable violence they just had to witness and try to hold it together while they bury their children, the President will be relaxing and enjoying himself until he deigns to grace them with his presence.
Nothing truly summarizes the Trump presidency more accurately than watching him use a school massacre as an excuse to get a head start on his three-day weekend.
