Well, there goes the latest left-wing lie about the victims not wanting to meet with Trump.
I don't think anyone said none of the victims wanted to meet Trump. But that he could give a thumbs up and be smiling while he and Melania held the baby is the depth of sickness. Who does that? Why isn't he comforting people instead of making this another photo op? They are soul-less.

Why is this surprising?

55,000 in El Paso Cty voted for Trump in 2016.

The office of FLOTUS released a picture of Melania holding the baby and 2 adults while Trump is grinning and giving a thumbs up. Not clear what the thumbs up was about.

The infant survived because his mother shielded him and she was hit and killed. The infantís father was shot and killed as he jumped to shield his wife and baby.

Trump supporters are master contortionists when it comes to the truth about their leader. They'll do anything to keep people from seeing the reality.

Oh stop with this nonsense! The shooter's manifesto itself said it had nothing to do with Trump. What racist rhetoric are you referring to anyway?

Just what are you implying by Trump grinning and giving a thumbs up with this baby? Are you seriously claiming that he was doing that because he was glad the parents were killed? WTH? You lefty liberals are incorrigible.

The lefties have completely lost their minds, and along with it the 2020 election. TRUMP

It shows Trump campaigning with his supporters.

It's tasteless...lacks any kind of empathy, compassion, sympathy.

it's Trump.
It is such a bizarre photo.

This baby was orphaned in a horrible attack and there they are grinning away like this is a celebration.

Read where five of the survivors refused to be photographed with the Trumps and three others were too injured. So staff sought out this baby to be brought back to the hospital.

That photo is stomach turning.

And there they are grinning away.

Not difficult to tell what message Trump is relaying to his supporters.

"Uncle of Orphaned Baby in El Paso: Family Supports Trump"

The Washington Post already published an article (on August 9) stating the same thing.

You completely misinterpreted what that poster said. The photo is obnoxious because yet again, at a time that should be solemn, trump has to make it about himself. Every single time. trump is completely inappropriate & you know it. Save the defending, itís so disingenuous.

Thinking the uncle was delighted to meet Trump and Melania. The photo will likely be proudly displaced in his home. It’s a private matter.

I don’t understand why Melania’s office did not note that the grin and thumbs up thing was an awkward optic, BEFORE releasing a photo of a private moment to the public.
