I’m sure you’ll be glad to hear that Donald Trump reported an “amazing day” where there was “so much respect for the office of the president,” which is good, since virtually nobody respects him personally — and that he was “treated like a rock star.” Ain’t it grand? Next he’ll be saying that the people told him that they were glad to have gotten shot, just so they could meet him.
..The President was treated like a Rock Star inside the hospital, which was all caught on video. They all loved seeing their great President!

Now, RawStory quotes both Brown and Whaley as saying nothing negative, quite the contrary.
“He was received well by the patients, as you’d expect,” Brown said. “They were hurting, he was comforting. He did the right things, Melania did the right things.”
Whaley herself said: “I think the victims and the first responders were grateful that the President of the United States came to Dayton.”
So, where’s the beef? But clearly there is one. Go to the second tweet where he disses Brown and Whaley.
Trump blames Dems for fact he spent day he visited mass shooting sites launching attacks against them on Twitter, alludes to how popular he was at hospitals where victims are being treated. This is not a normal guy. pic.twitter.com/UvXEZ9k5ok

Then Trump got into it on Twitter.
….misrepresenting what took place inside of the hospital. Their news conference after I left for El Paso was a fraud. It bore no resemblance to what took place with those incredible people that I was so lucky to meet and spend time with. They were all amazing!o

Sherrod Brown is not a “failed presidential candidate.” He considered running but didn’t. Your guess is as good as anybody’s about what set off Trump and his aides.
Here’s the bottom line: all that the tragedies in Ohio and Texas meant to Trump, was an opportunity to do a campaign commercial and talk about how loved he was and how nobody had “ever seen anything like it” — a president going to a hospital. No, in the history of the world, this is surely the first and only time that that has happened. Don’t believe historical accounts to the contrary. Trump channeled Florence Nightingale, and became the orange blossom of mercy. People lie dead and injured but sound bites and photo ops were obtained by the Trump cabal, so all is well in Trumpworld and screw the rest of us.
One can only speculate that the railing back against Brown and Whaley was simply a ploy to go on record saying that the Democrats had done something wrong. Whether they had or not is immaterial. This group in power now gives new meaning to the word “corrupt.” Maybe we should coin a new word, “trumprupt,” because these people defy description.
