President Donald Trump called for unity during a prepared White House address in the wake of two mass shootings over the weekend, but ahead of his trip to visit the communities impacted by gun violence, the consoler-in-chief was back to wedging a partisan divide on Twitter and in front of cameras.

Ahead of the President’s trip to Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham suggested Tuesday that the President would rise above the rhetoric, tweeting that Trump “is a true leader.” She wrote that the visit would “be about honoring victims, comforting communities, and thanking first responders & medical professionals for their heroic actions.”

But Trump’s teleprompter-prepared talking points fell by the wayside overnight, when Trump and his senior staff returned to targeting Democrats, and when he again used the El Paso attacks to call for stronger immigration laws.

Shortly after visiting Dayton shooting victims at an Ohio hospital, the President and his aides returned to criticizing political opponents when he was back aboard Air Force One.

To many Trump’s angry outburst seems like an overreaction.

President Trump on Wednesday lashed out at two Ohio Democrats who joined him at a Dayton hospital to meet with first responders and victims of the weekend’s mass shooting, accusing them of mischaracterizing the visit.

Trump and other White House officials spent the afternoon slamming Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley (D) over comments they made at a press conference following Trump’s visit.

But it’s unclear what specifically they took issue with, as both Brown and Whaley said they felt medical personnel and victims’ families appreciated his presence.

I guess it’s possible that Trump was reacting to these statement from Sherrod Brown in Ohio today. 

Trump can get his panties in a wad over them, but they are undeniably accurate. 

Or perhaps Trump was just pissy over all ofthe protests that greeted him during his visit.

Perhaps Trump just doesn’t like being confronted with his own racism.

    Trump may believe all would revere and worship him if it were not for the media and the handful of politicians who speak out holding him accountable. The protesters likely enraged him.

    The bore and the whore should have stayed in DC.

      “Brown and Whaley didn’t say anything that contradicted Scavino’s claims.” “they did not criticize him for his actual appearance in the hospital, which is what Trump and aides are now bizarrely fixated on.”

      “Trump accuses ‘very dishonest’ Democratic senator and mayor of smearing him after visit to Dayton hospital, accusing them of ignoring ‘love for the presidency’ and saying:
      ‘They shouldn’t be politicking today!’
      “a top adviser to the president insisted he was ‘ treated like a Rock Star inside the hospital’ and it ‘was all caught on video’ in tweets that he sent while Air Force One was headed to the state of Texas
      ‘They all loved seeing their great President!’ social media director Dan Scavino tweeted after Dayton’s mayor and Ohio’s Democratic senator attacked Trump minutes after his departure at a press conference – one of his closest aides did, tweeting that it was ‘disgusting’ that Ohio senator Sherrod Brown and Dayton mayor Nan Whaley didn’t acknowledge the ‘rock star treatment’ the president received while visiting survivors of Sunday morning’s mass shooting. {“I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything,” he said in the 2005 conversation. “Grab ’em by the pussy.”}
      Trump left Ohio without paying his respects to the dead at Sunday’s shooting site, where the members of the community established a make-shift memorial, after his motorcade passed hundreds of protesters”

    This was not about victims, their families, nor about gun violence.
    This was about him, and him alone. Notice the shit-eating grin in photos. Over a tragedy no less.

    None of the 8 victims and half their families refused to see Trump in El Paso.

    He posed with the orphaned baby with his standard insincere grin and double thumbs up. He really has no clue about appropriate behavior.
