The Trumps are called a ‘heartless couple’ for grinning photo op with baby orphaned in El Paso shooting

The Trumps are being slammed over their photo op with a baby orphaned during the El Paso shooting.


The president and first lady visited Texas and Dayton, Ohio, on Wednesday after last weekend’s mass shootings.  Photos  from the visits were posted to Melania’s Instagram and there has been criticism over their poses in one as they stand next to the baby, whose parents died saving his life, both grinning widely. Further, the president was giving a thumbs-up.


The photo is all over social media and critics of the president have dubbed it “disgusting” while the pair has been called a “heartless couple.” Actor  John Cusack  said “there is no bottom to the abyss,” while   The View ’s  Ana Navarro-Cárdenas  called the president an imbecile.





It has also been lost on no one that other victims of the shooting  reportedly refused to meet Trump   during his El Paso hospital visit. So the fact that the baby — who’s unable to speak for himself — was in a photo circulated by the White House is especially bothersome to many.



Andre and Jordan Anchondo were the parents of the child. They were shopping for party supplies for their daughter, who is turning 6, at Walmart when the shooting rampage began. Andre died protecting Jordan and she died shielding 2-month-old Paul, who was grazed by a bullet but survived.


In addition to the couple, 20 others were killed in the attack, which federal prosecutors are treating as an act of domestic terrorism and a potential hate crime. The shooter reportedly posted a hate-filled, anti-immigrant manifesto online just prior to the mass shooting speaking of a “Hispanic invasion of Texas” and writing that white people are being replaced by foreigners.

Tito Anchondo, Andre's brother.

Tito and his wife apparently will now adopt his brother's three children.

Ya, I guess it's undeniable....holding a baby is a pleasant experience. Smiling would be the normal reaction.

I can't vote the article down, can I?

There is NOTHING pleasant about this tragedy that would bring smiles and a thumbs up.  Nothing.  The baby is an orphan.  I'm gobsmacked at the lengths some will go to defend the indefensible.  This was a fricken political photo op for Trump.  Look at the entire trip from DC to Dayton to El Paso and defend that behavior.

As I wrote else where, the Anchondos are self described by Tito as Republican, conservative, Trump supporters, including Andre, the deceased brother.

I'm thinking it was as a good a smile as Tito could muster under the circumstances to be polite for the picture.

His sister doesn't look quite as pleased.

Baby Paul could care less.

The photograph is bizarre. The child's parents were murdered a week ago and Trump is grinning and giving a thumbs up. 

You can't fix that Vic, yet you constantly try. What does that tell us?

Smiling while holding a baby is the NORMAL reaction. I understand why Trump haters have to twist it, but you , as usual, get nowhere with objective voters!

What does that tell us? 

That the hate by the radical left knows no bounds!

Bullshit!  Baby's family was dead.  Other sources have stated that they called the baby back because other victims refused to meet with Trump.  Cornyn is just spinning.

God only knows what Trump is giving a thumbs up for.

I wonder if Trump and his wife would be all smiles and thumbs up if Ivanka and her husband had been among those killed in the massacre. 

Trump will no longer be President, and may even no longer be on this earth by the time that baby grows old enough to understand the significance of that photo op, but, it will likely not be a photo that will bring smiles to his own face. 

NORMAL? Under such circumstances? Only to those who have sold their soul to the Devil for 40 pieces of silver.

Consider the source of that big smile. There is NO excuse for it, yet, Trumps minions will tell any kind of lie or excuse to try to justify it. What we see here on this site is only a small number of the overall number of those who feel the need to try and glorify their Messiah in their own mind. 

Obviously, based upon the ridiculous and inane excuses posted here, it would seem that many of their own minds can't fully justify it either. But, due to party loyalty above all else, they have to try to do so.

There is a great bamboozling effort underway on behalf of Trumpism. It is everywhere. It is far AND near. 

The election and the future of the nation is likely in the balance as regards how people react to this great bamboozling. We didnt react to it in great enough numbers in 2016. America has to do better.

The poor orphaned, defenseless baby, who can not now voice his own opinion or how he feels about the horrific massacre that took the lives of his parents, was unwittingly used as a pawn in a photo op for Trump.

While he may not realize it now, as he is too young to understand, I wonder how he will feel in the years to come when he is made aware of the situation of how his parents died and how he was used as a pawn by the then President of his country to try to make the President look like he really cared about those who lost their lives and the ones who were injured in the massacre that took the lives of his parents and left him an orphan. 

Perhaps no one thinks about that now, or even cares, but, one day this child will have to live with the truth that will follow him throughout his life. And Trump, nor any of his ardent followers, will care one bit what will happen to that child when they grow up. As his name will go down in the history books as a survivor and the picture that made him famous. 

I don't think there will be any smiles on his face when that day comes.

Sad they were using an orphaned child as a prop. Even more sad that they are grinning about it instead of having faces showing concern. And even more sad that Trump is giving his signature "Trump Fonz" thumbs up. Combined this makes for one disgusting photo op that sadly doesn't surprise anyone at this point which really says a lot as to how far Trump has demeaned the office of President.

I heard a story that this wasn't the baby that the mother fell on to save its life. The baby that survived the shooting supposedly had a bunch of broken bones because of Mom falling on him

The baby just lost his Mother and Father in a most horrible tragedy, and yet Trump and is ohh so proper wife are all smiles and happy faces. Sad. Truly sad.

Which just goes to prove that they were really there for an photo op, not to console those who had lost family members or were seriously injured. Totally pathetic of both the President and First Lady. 

And no....it is not just because it is Trump, I would say the same thing no matter who the President and First Lady were if they acted in the same manner. It's grossly unacceptable.

I can understand why those in the hospital did not want to be part of his photo-op visit and refused to meet with him.

I dont particularly blame the Trumps for this particular debacle. I'm sure someone just handed them a baby and said smile. 

It is of course very ignorant, but ignorance is the order of the day.  When the next mass shooting occurs, which should be any day now, I suggest the Trumps stay home, or at the golf course/country club,  where their ignorance is confined to their own kind.

Gee, no criticism of the other people in the photo? For that matter, no criticism of the many politicians who have jumped in front of a microphone or camera in the last week?

I'm not a fan of photo ops in general (and I've been in a few), but then I'm not a politician. This photo seems little different than any of the many others out there.

I didn't defend anything. I just asked why people care only about what he does. Heck, if I defended him, then so did you when you wrote,

Congratulations, John, you're riding the Trump Train! "John Russell, Trump Defender!" Kind of has a nice ring to it.

No, Tacos really isn't. He's one of the more reasonable conservatives here. He doesn't always come to trmp's defense.

I kinda expect the president not to be smiling and giving a thumbs up. Call me crazy but I expect the POTUS to not be as big a retard as 99% of the population. 

Too much to ask I know.

I would like that, too. In fact, I don't really get why anyone is posing for pictures in a situation like this. However, it seems to be a pretty regular thing. Maybe I just don't get it.

The other man is the baby's uncle.  I don't think he was tied and tortured to be in the picture.

Note...he his smiling also and just lost his brother and sister-in-law.

Well, Donald Trump is a total asshole so what does anyone expect?

Of course Trump gives a thumbs up to the orphaning of babies via mass shootings, because that is what an asshole would do.

Sick and bizarre, who smiles and gives the thumbs up for an orphaned baby whose parents died in a shooting and had to be brought back to the hospital by relatives for a photo op?
