    It's not a guilty conscience, it's an act. Think Tucker Carlson interviewing anyone (sorry about making anyone picture him).

    Trump Laughed About Shooting Mexican Migrants 3 Months Before El Paso Shooting

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-smirked-idea-shooting-migrants-173458686.html


    "Donald Trump laughed and joked after a supporter suggested shooting Mexican migrants at a rally in May 2019. The clip of the interaction is once again spreading across social media, as the US reels from the El Paso massacre."

    “When you have 15,000 people marching up, and you have hundreds and hundreds of [immigrants], and you have two or three border security people that are brave and great – and don’t forget we don’t let them and we can’t let them use weapons,” Mr Trump said, to an audience of thousands in Florida"

    "We can’t. Other countries do, we can’t. I would never do that. But how do you stop these people?”

    In response someone from the audience shouted: “Shoot them!”

    Mr Trump then appeared to laugh before shaking his head and saying: “That’s only in the Panhandle you can get away with that statement.”

    The crowd then erupted into laughter and cheers, and Mr Trump added: “Only in the Panhandle!”

    Trump spreading divisiveness with dangerous rhetoric at one of his rallys about Mexican Immigrants, leading one of his suporters to talk about shooting them. He laughs and jokes about it. 3 months later El Paso happens.

    Trumpeters are all over this. Apparently his statements have multiple meanings -- the "alternative facts" defense.

    Willful ignorance.

    He is the worst diplomatic US President of all time. Apparently, the morons that endorse him are just as blunt headed.

    They try to make it look like they are doing something for their constituents when they are really appealing to their voting lobbies.

    It would be nice for a change seeing our congress actually do something respectable for the people of our nation as a whole.

    With the amount of time young people spend on the internet exploring different causes and/or social positions, and learning internet war fair with abuses aplenty. Couple that with drugs, alcohol and lack of family values and support, with so many kids, and its a recipe for mental illness and tragedy. There is no cool down time.
    Today there is not as much margin for error when it comes to being a little crazy and out of control, as compared to say, 50 years ago.
    Doesn't matter what your political feelings are we as a people must be more responsible for how we guide and coach our young people or the rate of tragedy will expand and no family will be immune from it's toll.
    Lets get back to love in's and rock & roll with a whole bunch of respect!
    Peace and Love, flowers and beads!

    Meanwhile, Trump offers prayers to the wrong city...

    And Joe Biden said Houston before correcting himself.

    Great to know they care.
