Well, we have certainly heard THAT before.

Courtesy of the AP:

Seeking to comfort grieving families and shaken survivors, President Donald Trump spent more than an hour privately Thursday with some of those impacted by a Texas mass school shooting that killed 10 and wounded more than a dozen on May 18.

Rhonda Hart, whose 14-year-old daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was killed at the school, told The Associated Press that Trump repeatedly used the word ‘wacky’ to describe the shooter and the trench coat he wore. She said she told Trump, “Maybe if everyone had access to mental health care, we wouldn’t be in the situation.”

Hart, an Army veteran, said she also suggested employing veterans as sentinels in schools. She said Trump responded, “And arm them?” She replied, “No,” but said Trump “kept mentioning” arming classroom teachers. “It was like talking to a toddler,” Hart said.

Reporters were not permitted to witness the meeting.

Just what the parent of every murdered child wants to hear, that their child’s murder was “wacky.” 

Saving our children from gun violence will never be accomplished by placing armed guards or teachers in our schools, but it certainly might be accomplished if our leaders actually listen to the survivors and parents of those who did not survive. 

Something that Trump’s predecessor understands quite well. 

All Donald Trump is doing is echoing the NRA’s talking points verbatim. 

You know, like a toddler reciting his ABC’s.

    tinydjt>”“Don’t forget, this was a meeting where a letter was given to me by Kim Jong-un, and that letter was very nice letter. Oh, would you like to see what was in that letter, would you like — how much? How much? How much?””,WTF
    “Trump admitted, “No, I didn’t. I haven’t seen the letter yet. I purposely didn’t open the letter. I haven’t opened it. I didn’t open it in front of the director. I said, would you want me to open it? He said you can read it later. I may be in for a big surprise, folks.””
    “HE chose to lie, and look like an idiot when he got caught.

    Only a sucker would take anything Trump says at face value. If he lies about reading a letter, Trump will lie about the outcome of the summit with North Korea.”
    “The lesson is that there is nothing tOO small for Trump to lie about”
