Yesterday Donald Trump’s brother Robert Trump died. Although Donald briefly visited Robert in the hospital at one point, Donald ended up going golfing yesterday while his brother passed away. And yet Trump supporters somehow expect us to feel sympathy for Donald.
Donald Trump is a man who has murdered 160,000 Americans and counting over the past few months. He’s literally in the midst of a mass negligent homicide streak. Trump is also continuing to criminally conspire with America’s foreign enemies, while trying to rig his own election. We’re supposed to feel sympathy for this guy because he lost a brother he never cared about to begin with?
Where was the sympathy from Trump supporters when Elizabeth Warren’s brother and Maxine Waters’ sister recently died from coronavirus? Donald Trump just keeps attacking them both in racist fashion. Come to think of it, what did Robert Trump even die from? Seventy-two year olds don’t die without a reason. Did he have coronavirus too? Is the Trump family covering it up, as part of their insistence that the entire pandemic is a hoax? We may never know.
This is all beyond the pale. You can feel however you want about Robert Trump, based on the particulars of his life. But Donald Trump deserves absolutely no sympathy in a situation like this. None. Especially when he decided to spend the last day of his brother’s life golfing.
