Here’s the video. Trump jokes that he considered canceling his speech to FFA because his hair got wet while talking to reporters (about the mass shooting in Pittsburgh). pic.twitter.com/wLb4hpERgF

Hours after a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed at least 11 people, President Donald Trump gave a political speech at the Future Farmers of America Convention. During the speech, Trump, unprompted, discussed how his hair was ruined earlier in the day when he had to stand outside in the rain by Air Force One answering questions about the shooting.
“By the way, somebody just said your hair looks different today,” Trump said in Indianapolis.
“I was standing under the wing of Air Force One doing a news conference earlier this morning, a very unfortunate news conference, and the wind was blowing and the rain and I was soaking wet and that’s what I ended up with today,” he added.
As the crowd laughed, Trump said that he mentioned the possibility that he should “cancel this “arrangement because I have a bad hair day.”
“The bad news,” he added, was, “somebody said, ‘actually it looks better than it usually does.’”
Eleven people died this morning in that mass shooting at the Pittsburgh synagogue, and this douchenozzle thinks that it is appropriate to joke about having bad hair.
In fact, he is treating their deaths much like he treated this umbrella earlier today.

Can he not even work a simple umbrella?
I once read an article that said psychopaths make good CEOs because they don’t let all of those human emotions like empathy and concern for their employees get in the way of the bottom line.
However, it is not an admirable trait in a president of the United States.
When a country mourns they want to believe that their president mourns along with them.
Donald Trump has proven time and time again that he lacks the ability to feel anything that does not directly impact him.
That is why he can embrace evil dictators, who murder and oppress their people, just as long as they at least pretend to admire him.
It now feels that we are miles away from the leader who once made us feel recognized, accepted, and safe.
Update: And what do you know, Obama is STILL doing the job better than the guy who replaced him.
We grieve for the Americans murdered in Pittsburgh. All of us have to fight the rise of anti-Semitism and hateful rhetoric against those who look, love, or pray differently. And we have to stop making it so easy for those who want to harm the innocent to get their hands on a gun.
