Hospitals in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio are denying President Trump's claim this week that doctors left operating rooms to meet him during his trips to visit the survivors and first-responders of this month's deadly mass shootings.

WTF is wrong with him?:

Speaking to reporters at the White House Wednesday, Trump said "the doctors were coming out of the operating rooms" to greet him.

"There were hundreds and hundreds of people all over the floor. You couldn't even walk on it," he said.

But both hospitals have confirmed that doctors did not leave any patients or operating rooms to meet the president in the wake of the mass shootings, which left more than 30 dead.

Also:

None of the eight patients who were still hospitalized at University Medical Center [in el Paso] at the time agreed to meet with Trump during his trip on Aug. 7, the hospital confirmed to the Post.

But to hear Trump tell it:

"The love for me " and me, maybe, as a representative of the country " but for me " and my love for them was unparalleled. These are incredible people. But if you read the papers, it was like nobody would meet with me," Trump said.

"Not only did they meet with me, they were pouring out of the room," he continued.

In fact, they were pouring out of the operating rooms to meet him.

Pouring.

From what I can tell the photos are of Trump visiting hospital victims in Dayton, not El Paso. I don't see any photos of doctors leaving surgery to meet him. I also don't see photos of hundreds of people on a hospital floor lovingly greeting him.

After meeting with families of the Sandy Hook victims for hours, Obama sat alone in a classroom before attending a prayer vigil.

After visiting with the wounded in one of the worst school shootings in U.S. history (Parkland), Trump attends a Studio 54 themed party at Mar-a-Lago.

Pouring."

And they were all wearing MAGA hats that they took off and reverently asked him to sign!

If they identify any they should lose their licence to practice medicine.

The meat of the issue is that Illegitimate President Bucket of ---- feels the need to brag about the reception to him visiting victims of a mass shooting.

This is beyond WTF territory.

Of course they left the OR. Our Messiah healed all their patients, now they can take the day off!

You just won't hear THAT part in the liberal media.

When I clicked on the photo of Trump with the police officers, it took me to this article:

There is a good reason patients didn't want to meet with Trump--they were listed as critically or seriously injured:

Injured victims being treated for their wounds at University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas declined a meeting with President Trump during his Wednesday visit, according to a hospital spokesperson.

"This is a very sensitive time in their lives," UMC spokesman Ryan Mielke said. "Some of them said they didn't want to meet with the president, some of them didn't want any visitors." All of the eight victims still under hospital care declined to meet with Trump. Five people are still listed in critical condition at the hospital, while three are considered to be in serious condition.

They have morals and didn't want to meet the man who inspired the shooting?

Not at all. Some family members met with him. The USA Today article said this:

"The president did meet with family members of three survivors in the hospital waiting room for nearly two hours after most objected to seeing him, Gallardo said.

Families said they had been asked on Tuesday if Trump could visit with them and most declined."

It's Trump who can't be content with the truth and has to turn a hospital visit after a mass shooting into "hundreds and hundreds" of people greeting him lovingly in the hospital hallway. Nobody expected his visit to be a campaign rally--except him apparently.

No, because they were critically or seriously ill.

Which didn't stop you from using them. #sad #TDS

I didn't use them. Trump did by claiming their doctors left them in operating rooms to rush out to greet him. What a narcissistic nutjob he is.

You know what's weird? That article uses a photo of a girl in a blue gown and with a blue water bottle by her bed and says:

"President Trump visiting a victim of the El Paso Walmart shooting."

But this article in the NY Post uses what looks to be a photo of that same girl and says:

"President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump meet with Dayton shooting victims at Miami Valley Hospital."

nypost.com

If I'm right that is the same girl, someone made a mistake.

You should search all night for corroboration.

Nah, no need. I'll take the NY Post over 100percentfedup.com unless someone can prove otherwise.

PS The reason I believe the Post is right and not the source you cite is because Rob Portman is also in the photo.

....or, are those who met with him do not want to admit so, as the left LOVE attacking anyone who agrees with our president, which is evident from daily media articles.

Says the party of sending death threats to the families of people killed in Mass shootings.

Give me a break. "Attacked in news articles"?

They don't want to meet with Trump because they know he is a demagogue who will use ANYONE as a prop to boost his ego (which is what this article is about). This is not something "the left" caused.

YOU built this. We have been saying from the beginning of his term that he is intentionally divisive and only cares about making Trump "great".

Hell... You have people like Sheeple and Goatman and Nulli BRAGGING about how Trump is going to win BECAUSE he is a troll who says over the top things to piss off libs.

But, somehow, when people don't want to be around a person who, according to righties, is INTENTIONALLY that way, all you can think of is that it is the fault of the people who, the righties are claiming, he is SUCCESSFULLY TROLLING?

Seriously? Y'all are so pathetic. Can't even figure out whether you are coming or going.
