Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, August 09, 2019

The image of both Trumps flashing big smiles while holding an orphan of mass gun violence at the hospital where his parents had only recently just died -- and where he was returned to just for the photo op -- struck a huge nerve with folks online, and their visceral responses showed it.

The festering orange pustule should also have photo ops with the migrant toddlers who are dying in his concentration camps.

Fat Nixon is a yuge part of why this boy will never know his parents. But at least he can clutch a picture of him and the orange lard barge when he goes visits his parents grave.

This feels like the origin story of a comic book superhero.

Trump is a sociopath.

Report is that no victim would speak with Trump at the El Paso hospital.

Trumps, both of them, do not have any human emotions. I hope every American sees this display of uncaring use of an orphaned child as a prop. Truly disgusting.

This is an issue? Presidents have a long history of photo ops with babies. Hell, used to be if you didn't kiss someone's baby you had no hope of getting elected. Or is the issue that Trump smiled? If he wasn't smiling the left would surely be saying, "You can tell he hates babies and is just doing this for the photo op." You know it's true, lefties.

And Trump is flashing the big thumb up and his Pepsodent smile because he's doing such a heckuva job protecting innocent people from gunwielding lunatics.

I see you also have to resort to distortions in order to support the orange schitt stain.

Doesn't that raise any flags for you?

#10 - Do Presidents have a long history of photo ops with babies whose parents have just been murdered? A photo op that had to be manufactured by bringing the baby back to the hospital after it was discharged?

Clearly you think standing there with an inane grin on his face giving a thumbs up sign is an appropriate response to tragedy. Most reasonable people, left or right, would not in my opinion. Maybe you can explain what there is to smile about given what has happened to that baby? What is there to celebrate that warrants a thumbs up?

Is pointing out the the President of the US lacks the basic humanity to deal with tragedy in a manner that brings dignity to the office and comfort to the victims TDS? Not in my book. I thought one of the things supporters liked about Trump was that he " tells it like it is" - apparently not an acceptable policy when applied to Trump himself.

Why in the world would anyone, let alone the POTUS, give a thumbs up sign while having his picture taken with an infant whose parents were just killed in a mass shooting? Oh, yeah, it's because for Trump this was a one big, reality TV photo-op and nothing more. Unbelievable. But then again we are talking about the Narcissist-in-Chief and a man who has the emotional IQ of a walnut.

Holding a baby isn't the problem. I haven't seen people criticizing Melania. We are criticizing the thumbs up doofus in the photo next to her.

What was distorted?

That POTUSs have a long history of baby pictures, as if they're normally bringing orphan children from a mass shooting in for them to hold just long enough for a picture as opposed to they're interacting with normal people who have their own babies with them and actually like the POTUS enough to let them hold their child.

But you've posted a Hillary deflection so I see you're likely going to be added to the dishonest schitt heap pile with the majority of other righties on this site.

Could they not get any victims capable of speaking for themselves to stand with Trump so they brought in the baby?

That's not an issue for you?

BTW have you seen the picture? It's a beautiful representation of how big of a worthless schittheap Trump is. No sane person poses like that in those conditions while holding a prop baby who was orphaned just days ago.

There is such a thing as TDS, but it isn't people who don't like Trump who are afflicted with it. TDS afflicts his cultish followers who feel compelled to slavishly defend the man against every criticism no matter how justified.

I love it when low self esteem people have to appoint themselves as judges of themselves and declare themselves the winner. LOL Don't break that mirror high fiving yourself.

Anyway, I have to get my ass to Galveston and watch my niece walk the stage and get her sheepsking feom Texas A&M. I'm quite proud of her. THe whole family -- all four generations -- are flying or driving in for the event. It'll be good to talk to people with some sense rather than people who have to tell the world they are fight. (hint -- people who are right don't have to tell anyone. It iss eelf evident)

Good day to you, JPW, and watch out for broken glass!

All four generations of your family? That means a total of three people, right?

Trump is like that ancient, ----- uncle that appears during the annual white American family reunion that walks around in loose farmer's overalls pinching the little girls in the lower extremities and holding the little boys waaaay too closely. You just got to put up with him until he eventually does humanity a favor and croaks. Sometimes that means drinking a whole lot of alcohol and eating a bit too much of that green potato salad with the Dole oranges and tri-colored, mini marshmallows...

Trump missed a golden opportunity to take a picture with Patrick Crusius, hero to xenophobic Trumpublicans across the nation.

Was that photo taken right after hillary got that baby's parents killed?

If not, then there is no comparison.

I heard the NPR interview with the brother of one of the child's parents yesterday morning. All I could do is feel sorry for him. Not only did he lose his brother and sister-in-law but they are deluded because they don't believe Trump means what he says and support him. He wanted to meet Trump so he could look him in the eye and see if he was right or not about him. All I can wonder is what is the answer he thinks he got.

I know you aren't a dimwit so why would you post that?

Do you think - given the situation i.e. The child was injured and his parent murdered protecting him as part of a massacre of 22 people - that the photo with a raving lunatic smile and a "thumbs up" is even remotely what should be portrayed by the POTUS and first lady?

LOOK at that photo. In the VERY least it is inappropriate. It is a time of mourning. This is an incredibly sad event - even with the baby surviving - with a death toll you expect from Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan or some other destroyed country with raging conflict. If this were Kenya the State Department would be putting out travel advisories and recalling staff.

If that doesn't help ow about this - imagine for a moment if this was Barack and Michelle Obama. Or even Bill and Hillary Clinton... You would be unhinged.

I also have an issue with them being murdered by someone Trump urged to violence, then Trump had the baby orphan delivered like it was grubhub sending a burrito and he smiled and thumbed up.

Yeah. A few things here are f'd up.
