Default Donald Trump Apparently Thinks Meeting Mass Shooting Victims Is 'Wonderful'

President Donald Trump totally chose the wrong word to describe his meeting with victims of the Las Vegas massacre.

Trump tweeted on Thursday morning that it was “so wonderful” to greet some of those injured by a heavily armed gunman who opened fire on the crowd at Sunday’s Route 91 Harvest Festival. Nearly 60 people were killed and more than 500 were hurt.

@realDonaldTrump

So wonderful to be in Las Vegas yesterday and meet with people, from police to doctors to the victims themselves, who I will never forget!

Trump visited Las Vegas on Wednesday. He also met with police officers and doctors who responded to the attack. He said the trip was something he “will never forget.”

Trump’s use of “wonderful” did not go down well on Twitter. Many people called him out for “making a tragedy sound like good news.”

The president’s ham-handed description comes after Elaine Duke, the acting secretary of homeland security, called the federal response to Hurricane Maria tearing into Puerto Rico a “good news story.”

Yes, Mikeyy, the President has and does say things that make us go .
In this case, I believe he meant it was wonderful to be there with them after all that transpired.
He needs to work on thinking what the masses will think when he has one of those moments.

What's wrong with saying it's wonderful to meet first responders and survivors of a deadly attack?

Guess libs woulda been happier if Trump called 'em "Corpse Man" while traveling around to all 57 states and insulting kids in the Special Olympics. Trump then shoulda confused the name of a Medal of Honor recipient while signing the wrong year in the Westminster Abbey guest book, not knowing Illinois is closer to Kentucky than Arkansas, thinking 'Austrian' is a language, claiming 10,000 peeps died in a tornado when it was only 12, and not knowing what religious faith you have or how old your own daughter is.

It works like this...

Unlike the last eight years of Obama, where EVERYTHING SAID was given a benefit of a doubt and interpreted as something positive, WHATEVER TRUMP SAYS is NOT given the benefit of a doubt and interpreted as something negative...

Obama - "Blah, blah, blah, blah"

Reaction from the Left and the media (redundancy alert) - "Wow! That's the greatest thing I've ever heard!!!! Glory and praise be Obama!!!!!

Trump - "Blah, blah, blah, blah"

Reaction from the Left and the media (redundancy alert) - "Wow! That's the worst thing I've ever heard!!!! Trump should be waterboarded twice!!!!!

I am far from a Trump supporter. I think he says dumb crap from time to time and has made a few dumb decisions. However, I have also credited him when I believed that it was due, just as I did with Obama.

You and Mikeyy and many on the left have attacked him and his supporters on every word and decision that have come from this man. That is the very definition of partisan.

The problem is people always have to explain what they hope he meant.
