I know how I felt when I first heard about the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. I grew up not too far from there. Old friends of mine still live in that area, and some of them have kids who go to that school. So my first thought was, “Are my friends’ kids dead?” Now we’re learning that when the pieces of filth running Donald Trump’s White House first heard about the shooting, what they felt was relief. No, really.
One of Trump’s White House Officials, who refused to attach their own name to these words for rather obvious reasons, summed up the shooting this way to the Washington Post: “For everyone, it was a distraction or a reprieve. A lot of people here felt like it was a reprieve from seven or eight days of just getting pummeled.” (link). Are you kidding me? I mean seriously, someone please tell me this isn’t a real quote, because I don’t even know what to say about it. Sadly, this indeed a real quote from a real Trump White House adviser.
Not only do Trump and his goons view themselves as the victims because they’re finally having to face questions about their own criminal antics, they felt relieved when a bunch of innocent American children were murdered, because it meant a day off from having to face questions about their criminal antics. I get that these people are feeling the heat, but you know what? So what.
The truly revealing part about this quote is that it isn’t merely one Trump White House adviser being dumb enough to admit to having felt relieved about she school shooting. This is one Trump adviser saying that they pretty much all felt that way. This is the kind of culture that career criminal and worthless subhuman Donald Trump has installed in the White House. For this alone he should be impeached.
