    Trump will never be contrite, he is incapable, like all sociopaths he learns how to look like he cares (tele-prompters for example), the simple fact is he doesn’t stop expecting him to be what we see as reasonable and listen to the mental health experts.
    Books: The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and …

    by R Field – ‎2018
    In The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump, a book published in October 2017, 27 psychiatrists and others point to the dangerousness of this president.

  2. Trump who invoked God in his speech multiple times. If he does not want to be a hypocrite, must CONFESS that his language inspires and enables white nationalism in the US and around the world, must REPENT of ever using the language of hate and dehumanization again, and must ATONE of the evil he has done to our country and the world with kinder words and more humane actions. Then we the humans of our world may begin to heal from the Trump nightmare.

      God hates economic migrants. Send them back!

    • When the Democrats advocated for erasing the border at their debate they asked for this. They have sown the wind, and the whirlwind is coming.

    • Which is exactly why you should never vote for a demonrat. They are the power hungry globalist tools that want to destroy our great country!

      This is true.
      He has established a pattern of behavior over his lifetime. This makes him morally weak.

    I understand those people, he would NEVER be welcome in my home..I would hang up the phone I wouldn’t spit on him if he was on fire!.and I’m a republican! And ashamed of my party and the Senate!

    • Blackswordsman6 – another keyboard warrior. Playing into putins hands.

    • Power corrupts- so true. The only consistent political policy he has followed is to undo anything Obama did. He’s using the republicans so that he makes money out of the presidency. The republicans are using him to stuff the judiciary and to advance their racist agenda.

      Last time I checked, they don’t ask you about your political beliefs or your mental state when you buy a gun in the United States. Good luck with your plans.

      I would put your words in that category.
      The orange one is repeating lies.

      Not exactly oval office material.

    Donald Trump backs the NRA. “PROFITS BEFORE LIFE’S”.

    • Ryan Edwards | August 6, 2019 at 8:26 AM | Reply

      @bob sagget’s dad Doesn’t make them any less culpable. The NRA now is a far cry from the responsible organization it was founded as. And you can thank you total nuts and gun manufacturers to used the by-laws to oust the responsible leadership decades ago. The NRA is a lobbying arm that is full of dirty, conniving scum that exerts undue influence by riling up division and trying to destroy congressional and state legislators by vilifying them for who they are with a certain sect of the community: The wingnuts.

      Welcome to being a wingnut.

    I visited the beautiful city of El Paso back in the 80s.
    The people where sweet and friendly and made me feel like I was family.
    Isn’t about time we start to realize that we are all brothers and sisters ?
    Soo sad.
    My condolences to my family for your loss.
    Please know that the majority of the American people stand with you.

    The WH occupant visit to El Paso may bring in more supremacists to that city and spark problems, not just protests!

    • @Davey Jones – “a president who is objectively better and more moral …”
      Anyone who thinks that about Trump is so willfully ignorant that their words should immediately be ignored.

    • @Davey Jones <---- trump delusion syndrome.

  11. The president is right mental illness does pulls the trigger,racism. And he is mentally ill if he doesn’t see that.

    On behalf of ALL Australians, we condemn the rhetoric of the current WH occupier. Our hearts are breaking across the Pacific… 😥
    Please change your gun laws. It DOES work.

      @Crystal Giddens Set off a firecracker next to your face and you’ll understand. Not sure what you’re getting at.

    • @Crystal Giddens Do you get followed around by abusive shills too? Wherever and whenever I make a post defending Trump, damning the MSM or pointing people to more factual versions of events, not distorted by left wing rhetoric and lies, the shills come out? I’m fairly certain I must be on some sort of algorithm, the regularity and predictability of their appearance (and it’s obviously one or two people posting from a multitude of accounts). Clearly they’re being paid by Google/Youtube/ Alphabet Inc.

    • @Keisha Sharp Don’t forget also the 7 members of MS13 arrested for slaughtering 13 people in LA this past week (in some cases they pulled out their hearts while still alive). But the MSM won’t report on that, wonder why?

    He’s like Hitler visiting a Jewish town and expecting a warm welcome.

    Trump will never admit wrong doing. He will just make the violence worse.

    • @Car Photography dayton Ohio shooter was a registered democrat, however there was no evidence that his attack was political. It had all the signs of a mentally-ill person. The dude shot his own sister….

    • Car Photography – Cesar Sayoc was a trump supporter, Jeff sessions instituted the zero tolerance policy and Fox lies to you daily ( as of course does the president).
      Your post is pointless. This is not about who did what. We can all do that. This is about peoples lives being ruined by gun violence.

    • dioxins c – and in 2017 in one of the first acts of his presidency donald trump signed into law a Republican sponsored bill that makes it easier for people with mental health issues to buy guns. And now they’re saying it’s mental problems that caused the shooting. Sometimes its hard to comprehend the depth of their hypocrisy.

    • @Onair Carna yep….sadly…also please dont get the wrong idea. Both events are horrific, and i definitely blame trump for El Paso. The occupant in the WH needs to be impeached or voted out.

    You can’t “take back” words. Once you say something it is said.. especially when you have said the same thing over and over. SMH 😕😕 😕

      What ever tRump does now will be too little too late.

    • Trump’s hate speeches are all over the planet in all lenguages. For years he has sow hate and he is harvesting. I am in Central America we get them in Spanish, English even French. Hate is already there.

    What part of this you don’t understand. Trump and republican senators hate Hispanics and blacks.

    • SuperKaterTot | August 6, 2019 at 11:22 AM | Reply

      Except they don’t. They hate law breaking. Period.

    • It’s your rhetoric that causes the hate and violence when are you going to get that through your thick skull. As for the Ohio shooter explain this..The Ohio gunman described himself on social media as a pro-Satan “leftist” who wanted Joe Biden’s generation to die off, hated President Trump and law enforcement, and hoped to vote for Sen. Elizabeth Warren for president.

    My heart goes out to the people of El Paso and we as a country must ban together and tell our president no more you owe an apology to every single man woman and child of our country and until you do you do not have our support. Congress and Senate should stand there and turn their backs on the president and tell him until you apologize to the American people we will not except you as President of the United States.

  19. I’m glad El Paso has Ms Escobar at a time like this, she seems like such a wise and kind person. <3

  20. Reminder that trump described El Paso as a lawless city…. another lie….. now he wants to come for a photo op…. this admin is beyond disgusting

    • david whitaker | August 6, 2019 at 12:29 PM | Reply

      please let’s all act like never before and make this a public referendum for compassion and repudiation of the cluelessness and cruelty of the trump administration lets not “just vote” let’s make a clear undeniable message that Americans know how to correct a mistake
