What there isn't a shred of in all this tweeting, is the slightest acknowledgement that Patrick Crusius drove 900 miles across Texas to kill Mexicans.
There are tweets about China, tweets of people praising Trump, tweets about unemployment, tweets about how Trump believes that Google wants to steal the election from him, tweets about South Korea, and a couple about the New York Times changing one of it's headlines.

On Friday , early afternoon, President Trump made his first tweet about the shooting in El Paso.

Terrible shootings in ElPaso, Texas. Reports are very bad, many killed. Working with State and Local authorities, and Law Enforcement. Spoke to Governor to pledge total support of Federal Government. God be with you all!



-


Since then Trump has tweeted  49 more times over the course of 5 days. A handful of the tweets are a vague general condolence over the shooting in El Paso and the one in Dayton, one of them calls for capital punishment for the killers, and a couple of them tout his trip to those two cities today. 


Most of Trump's tweets in this series are not about these shootings at all, and none of them are about gun control, and none of them are about the white supremacy issue.  


Shortly after he first tweeted about the El Paso shooting, Trump's very next tweet was a photo of him in the oval office with a MMA fighter and a caption of Trump wishing the fighter luck in his bout that night. 


There are tweets about China, tweets of people praising Trump, tweets about unemployment, tweets about how Trump believes that Google wants to steal the election from him, tweets about South Korea, and a couple about the New York Times changing one of it's headlines. More fake news schtick from Trump. 


There is a tweet about Beto O'Rourke's name and poll rankings. 


And there is a tweet this morning claiming that the Dayton shooter was a member of Antifa.

“Meanwhile, the Dayton, Ohio, shooter had a history of supporting political figures like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and ANTIFA.”

  I hope other news outlets will report this as opposed to Fake News. Thank you!

We KNOW what Crusius motives were, but Trump does not even come close to showing that he understands that. 



Nothing about guns either.

In his robotic, "hostage video" speech on Monday  Trump briefly mentions white nationalism and white supremacy as the cause of the ElPaso murders.   In his tweets this acknowledgement is nowhere in sight.

We all know which version is the real Trump.

Why didn't he drive to Kansas City then, or Memphis?  It's embarrassing to watch people try and deny the obvious.

And, it's even more embarrassing to watch people scramble to twist stories to "prove" their points of hatred.

You do know that the kid was looking for something to eat and got lost - so he went to WalMart.  Maybe he just didn't like the Dallas TexMex food and wanted a variety, eh?

How 'bout the kid who drove 500 miles - with his buddy in his car - to Daytona - just to kill people.  Maybe his town doesn't have 500 people, eh?

Hell, if Trump said he wanted to give folks reparations, Democrats would be screeching that it wasn't enough--no matter HOW much it was.

Funny how Trump is magically to blame for all mass shootings while he is President, but no other Presidents are held to that same standard.

Oh, well, just another "I Hate Trump" article. Wow.

You have repeatedly proven your inability to discuss these things. Talk about repetitiveness. One can predict your comments before you make them. 

Trump has tweeted 50 times since the El Paso shootings.  Not one of them mentions the fact that Cruisius drove 900 miles for the purpose of killing Mexicans.

Did it change a fucking thing?

Stupid MF probably didn't know that he didn't have to drive anywhere really if he was in Texas to start with.

Now, had Trump mentioned it, what ELSE would you have found fault with, and HOW WOULD IT CHANGE ANYTHING?????????

I mean, besides placating your delicate sensibilities, of course.

I bet none of them discuss Cruisius' shoe sizes, shirt sizes, what he had for dinner the night before, does he sleep on his left side or right side, does he snore, does his car start first crank, is he left/right handed, or does he part his hair on the left/right sides.

Get a life John.

I do think Crusius' motive for driving 900 miles to shoot people should be discussed. Were there not enough brown people in McAllen? He just assumed there would be more in El Paso?

McAllen has much better Border enforcement than does El Paso.  Hell, in El Paso, it's open doors for anyone, Hispanic or otherwise.

Democrats are speaking loudly and clearly.  Democrats only care about dead Mexicans.  Not all the victims in El Paso were Mexican.  And the pile of midwestern Dayton victims don't provide a large enough podium for political grandstanding.  Apparently Democrats don't like garlic.

Dead Mexicans provide an opportunity for Beto O'Rourke to revive non-existent primary support.  And Julian Castro has to climb higher on the pile of dead Mexicans to shout down Beto.  Yep, the Democratic candidates with no future need more dead Mexicans.

Democrats, as usual, are pushing racial politics.  Dead Mexicans are more politically useful to Democrats than dead Americans.  The Democratic Party has become unified as the party of anti-American bigots.  The 'brown people' majority Democrats have been trying to create serves their anti-American bigotry very well.  Obviously Democrats need more dead Mexicans to remain politically relevant.

Yes there were non Mexican victims. They were "collateral damage".  The shooter says (in so many words)  that he was going to kill Mexicans in order to scare the rest into going back where they came from.

The "collateral damage" isn't politically useful for Democrats.  All the American victims get are thoughts and prayers.

That's the old 'one drop' politics used by Democrats to protect and expand slavery.  Apparently having 'one drop of Hispanic blood' means Hispanics can't quite be Americans on equal terms.

And Democrats claim their racial politics isn't racist.  The Democratic Party of Jackson hasn't changed in two hundred years.

The Dems new weapon is actually their old weapon, one which they never cease to use when they are down, or run out of facts, RACISM! They are truly disgusting! They even used it on Nancy Pelosi. I will be putting out a list of all people who have been so (ridiculously) accused!

Leaving El Paso for the White House. What GREAT people I met there and in Dayton, Ohio. The Fake News worked overtime trying to disparage me and the two trips, but it just didn’t work. The love, respect & enthusiasm were there for all to see. They have been through so much. Sad!
---------------
I don’t know who Joaquin Castro is other than the lesser brother of a failed presidential candidate (1%) who makes a fool of himself every time he opens his mouth. Joaquin is not the man that his brother is, but his brother, according to most, is not much. Keep fighting Joaquin!
=====================
Watching Fake News CNN is better than watching Shepard Smith, the lowest rated show on . Actually, whenever possible, I turn to
=========================
Just left Dayton, Ohio, where I met with the Victims & families, Law Enforcement, Medical Staff & First Responders. It was a warm & wonderful visit. Tremendous enthusiasm & even Love. Then I saw failed Presidential Candidate (0%) Sherrod Brown & Mayor Whaley totally.........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
=================================================================
Trump is a daily and complete embarrassment to our country. He had one thing to do, to profess sorrow at the shootings and deaths of 31 people. He cant even do that without making a fool out of himself.
