Trump Visits Pittsburgh to Console Jewish Mourners

Trump Visits Pittsburgh to Console Jewish Mourners:  Amid thousands of protestors, President Donald Trump visited the Pittsburgh synagogue to offer condolences to Jewish worshipers who were mourning the 11 people shot to death during Sabbath prayers.  Why, what a sweet gesture for the Trumps to go and offer condolences to mourners at a synagogue that was all shot up by one of his rabid followers who committed the crime after becoming all fired up by the President’s inflammatory, conspiracy theory-laden speeches.  And look, it kind of appears that Melania may have even brought pizza for everyone to snack on.  It doesn’t get sweeter than that!

Trump to Sign Executive Order to End Birthright Citizenship:  Declaring that “birthright citizenship has to end,” President Trump promised loyal followers he will sign an executive order to end the centuries-long, 14th amendment-protected practice.  Gee, apparently Trump must have mistakenly thought he had taken an oath to “deflect and destroy” the Constitution.

New Research Shows Neanderthals Not Hunched-Over Cavemen:  By using 3D virtual reconstruction of a Neanderthal ribcage, scientists determined that Neanderthals were not the stereotypical “hunched-over and barrel-chested cavemen” that we had previously assumed they were.  In fact, it turns out they weren’t cavemen at all, and many owned fashionable condos just a tad west of Cleveland on the shores of Lake Erie.  Good grief, if these researchers are correct, then I’d say we owe Neanderthals and their descendants shopping in Walmart stores all across America - a pretty big apology.

Let the American Nazis see him offering condolences to the congregation in Squirrel Hill. I,ll take any sane gesture we can get. Inciting this was clearly wrong. Going there to offer condolences was clearly right.

"Going there to offer condolences was clearly right."

Even though he was openly asked not to go to Pittsburgh by many civic and religious leaders there?

Yes, even though he was asked not to go. The optics of his going is too important. He needed some kind of gesture to counter the antisemitism he’s released. Let his followers understand that he does’t approve of this.

Hey Kosher - are you saying he actually doesn't approve of what was done at the Pittsburgh synagogue?  I take issue with that.  First and foremost, its important to remember that Trump doesn't really care about anyone or anything other than himself - so if he visits these victums, its not out of anything like compassion, but he's simply trying to disassociate himself from any of the repercussions of what he said.  Trump is intentionally saying these type things to fire up his base.  He knows he's talking to a pretty strange crowd of people who are capable of nearly anything.

I don't think for an instant that we can tell "that he doesn't approve of this."

I was visiting at my house with a close friend the other day whose family congregates there at the synagogue in Pittsburg. He has been on the phone a lot. Nobody wanted this flim-flam man and his mobster style wife to be there.

It's disrespectful. It's a photo op. It's grand standing. It's wrong.

So true - they saw through his bullshit right away.

I’m not saying he cares.

What I have a problem with here is the damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t aspect. In any given situation, there’s a choice to be made. 

In terms of the photo op, I’m not sure it works in his favor. It’s not like his base, outside of a few guys like Sheldon Adelson, care that much. It’s not like anyone who hates him is going to give him credit, because anyone who hates him thinks he caused this. Which he did. But he still, as President, belongs there. It wasn’t much of a photo op anyway. He still belongs there.

And I'm saying that when you continuiously spout language which scapegoats innocent groups of people, I don't really give a fuck about abstract concepts such as "damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t."  This fuck doesn't belong ANYWHERE - let alone leading this country in mourning deaths are the direct result of his big mouth.  If I saw him petting a little kitten - I would still HATE this fuck.  Him showing up at these events would be like Hitler touring a Holocaust Museum.  He's proven time and thime again that he's a lying, evil, fascist monster who needs to be gone - period!

I'm with Johnny on this. 100%.
