Courtesy of The Guardian:

The orphaned child, named Paul, had been brought back to the hospital – reportedly at the request of White House during the visit by the Trumps on Wednesday. The baby’s uncle, standing next to Donald Trump, is reportedly a Trump supporter, as was the deceased father.

The baby was injured, breaking his fingers, in the shooting, after his mother died trying to protect him and her body fell on him. His father had dived to try to shield her as bullets flew.

Speaking to NPR, the uncle, Tito Anchondo, said: “I think people are misconstruing President Trump’s ideas. My brother was very supportive of Trump.”

But condemnation of the picture – which was circulated by Melania Trump and not the family – was swift. White House aides had not allowed media into the hospital during the visit, saying it was “not a photo op”.

Well that is most definitely a photo-op.

And a macabre one at that. 

You know I don’t care if this child’s father was a Trump supporter or not. 

Someday he is going to grow up and see a picture of himself with the man whose hateful rhetoric led to the death of his parents. 

I doubt very seriously he will appreciate being used as a prop by this white nationalist POS.

    I usually know how to respond but sometimes i am left without words for the idiocy of the idjut and his wife and followers. They seem to like mak8ng orphans.

      Someone commented on the thread that, according to NPR, the uncle said the dad was a supporter. I don’t give a rat’s behind whether he was or not, the child is now an orphan and there that lard butt stands grinning ear to ear with a thumbs up. The audacity is downright appalling to me. Don’t even get me started on third wife.

    The baby is a cutie too bad he has to become a photo op for people who contributed to his parents deaths. I do hope he grows up with and has a good life after this tragedy in it.

    The thumbs up sign irks me. This uncle may have been thrilled to meet the President he supports. I agree with the CNN panelist who saidthe optics are bad and another opinion it would have been understandable if the uncle tweeted he was personally thrilled to meet Trump, who he supports. I can’t wrap my head around any Hispanics who support Trump given what he has said about Mexicans.

    All he needs is the jester hat with that stupid “grin” on his face, did he have something done to his teeth?

    by the way, last night Colbert was making fun of trump’s deal on the new Air Force One ( also know as airplane one) that went from $ 3 billion to $5 billion ( such a deal maker). Colbert said that they bought old 747s from the russians! I sure hope that was a joke, doesn’t Boeing have any USA 747s and can you image all the “bugs” putin has installed.

    There is so much wrong with this photo-op. First, it reminded me of how Palin used to hold baby Trig, when Trig was always facing the camera, not cuddled like most mothers would do with an infant. Then, Melania looks unattached, gritting her teeth, and holding that sweet little boy like a sack of potatoes. I guess Melania was looking for a nanny to please take the baby. And finally, that ridiculous uncle with his arm around baby-fingers Trump. I just want to smack the smirk off of their faces.

    A private citizen described as a “former firefighter” had pulled his firearm and was holding the man at gunpoint. That thing that supposedly never happens just happened again. A good guy with a gun averted a potential crisis.
    The FBI has recorded no fewer than 19 times in a five-year span (and that estimate may be low) — from 2014 to 2018 — when active shooters were stopped or repelled by citizens.

    This whole photo op sickens me. That child’s parents were gunned down by someone espousing Trump’s hateful rhetoric. Melania is presenting the baby like a trophy. And Trump is grinning and giving a thumbs up, like he’s standing beside a baby that just won a fucking contest or something. The word grotesque doesn’t quite cut this spectacle.

    The last time Melania held an infant that age Trump was busy fucking Stormy Daniels. I feel really sorry for this poor little orphaned boy but climate change is going to screw up his life just as much as Trump causing gis parents’ deaths.

    https://www.knoe.com/content/news/InvestigateTV-Debuts-New-Measure-of-Hate-Documentary-on-KNOE–KAQY-514349721.html

    Watch this weekend.
    Produced by Gray’s InvestigateTV team, the half-hour special reveals the vast undercounting of hate crimes throughout the country and how laws related to tracking and punishing hate crimes are not working.

    “Measure of Hate shines a light on an important topic affecting communities across the country,” stated Sandy Breland, Gray Senior Vice President-Local Media. “We’re proud of the work by our investigative team on this project. Their many months of reporting on this issue not only raised awareness but also sparked real change.”

    “Measure of Hate” uncovers how dozens of high-profile hate crimes investigated and prosecuted by the FBI and DOJ were not counted in the FBI federal database.

    “We hope this investigation encourages increased transparency to enable our leaders to better monitor hate crimes and highlight the importance of wide-ranging efforts to reduce hate crimes,” said Lee Zurik, Director of Investigations for InvestigateTV.

      “When he reads from a TelePrompTer, that’s the lie. When he talks like he did there, that’s who he is,” he continued. “This is a man with no empathy, with a low character, he is a person who does not have any recognition of the suffering of other people or of the role he is supposed to play as the American president in terms of bringing the nation together, consoling people and putting other people before his own gigantic roaring vacuum of ego.”

      Lemon then turned to D’Antonio to point out how divergent Trump’s behavior was — and has been in previous, similar moments — from the expectation that presidents put aside politics and personal score-settling in a time of national tragedy and mourning.

      “This says that when he told me that he’s the same person he was when he was six years old, he was right,”

    A catastrophe!

    Anthony Scaramucci Pans Trump’s Campaign-Style Visit with Mass Shooting Victims: A ‘Catastrophe’

    Scaramucci didn’t hold back about his former boss.

    “So, look, the president didn’t do well on the trip. He probably would be mad at somebody for saying that,” Scaramucci said. “Maybe he’ll tweet something negative about somebody for saying he didn’t do well, but facts are he did not do well on the trip because if the trip is being made about him and not the demonstration of compassion and love and caring and empathy for those people, then it becomes a catastrophe for him, the administration, and it’s also a bad reflection on the country.”

    ….“These poor people, imagine waking up from surgery and standing over you is a grinning, gaseous blob and his scowling trophy wife,” he said. “People are like, “sh*t, I must have died and gone to hell.’”

    “I’m in the hospital, I’ve had enough orange Jello!” he added.

    He also noted that a White House spokesperson said Trump was greeted “like a rock star.”

    “Yeah, R. Kelly,” Maher quipped.

    “None of the eight patients in the El Paso hospital agreed to meet with Trump,” he noted. “They were all asked if they’d like to meet the president and they all said, ‘El Paso.’”

    He also talked about the politics of the tragedies.

    Rachel Maddow shocked Trump is considering ‘The Human Sieve’ for Director of National Intelligence

      Pete Hoekstra
      “the Pete Hoekstra I’m thinking of — the one I think the president is talking about for Director of National Intelligence — is the man who earned himself the nickname
      ‘The Human Sieve’ because of his terrible track record of leaking like a sieve and being unable to keep even the most basic secret,”

      “Like the time in 2009 he went on a congressional delegation to Iraq, a trip that he was supposed to keep secret for operational security reasons, and he ended up live-tweeting it all in real-time,”

      “The Pete Hoekstra I’m thinking of published an op-ed in the New York Post complaining that ‘leaks to the news media have seriously undermined anti-terrorist intelligence programs’ — and then two paragraphs later in the same essay Hoekstra himself leaked classified information about that year’s budget for human intelligence programs,” she continued. “In print!”

      “The Pete Hoekstra I’m thinking of in 2006 convinced the Bush administration to post a whole bunch of documents seized from Iraq on the internet,” she recalled.
      “It turns out the documents included instructions in Arabic for making an atomic bomb.” “I mean that guy?””

    Critics called out Trump for failing to explicitly blame the massacres on guns or his government’s inability to tackle the country’s gun violence epidemic.

    The president was also chastised for his conduct during visits to hospitals where victims of the shootings were receiving treatment ― where he boasted about himself and attacked political rivals.

    “on Friday morning, Trump reiterated his support for the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Second Amendment, and he has continued to fan the flames of racism and division in the United States all week long, including during a visit to the El Paso hospital where many of the victims were treated.

    Taking down “violent” imagery and canceling an eSports broadcast won’t save any lives, and the meaningless actions certainly aren’t respectful to the lives that were lost last weekend. This isn’t progress, it’s a performative charade designed to protect those in power. And, so far, it’s working exactly as designed.”

    The baby was probably all they could get, being too young to speak and all. Grinning uncle might be pleased but either the aunt or grandmother on the other side doesn’t approve.

    NONE of the eight survivors in the hospital would consent to a visit from Trump and half of the families also declined.

    So this poor baby was the best the White House could do for b-roll for his campaign propaganda.

    “I can’t allow myself not even for a minute forget how dysfunctional this family is. I often wonder were Baron is.

    Never photographed at dinner or in the White House or playing golf with Dad.

    It’s disturbing and abnormal.”
