While most Americans learned last night or early this morning about the tragic deaths of seven U.S. Navy sailors aboard the U.S.S. Fitzgerald, there appears to be one person who either doesn’t know or doesn’t care. The Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Armed Forces.
It took Trump hours to even acknowledge that a U.S. naval vessel had even been involved in a horrific accident with seven sailors listed as missing. This morning, however, his tweets show that Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump.
Witch hunts, almost non-existent legislative action, and of course POLLS. In other words, HIMSELF. These are the priorities of the man who is supposed to be leading our country.
No doubt, some time today he, or more likely his Twitter alter ego Dan Scavino, will issue some sort of statement. But if you or a family member has ever served in our military, or even if not, this type of self-centeredness, so typical of Donald Trump has to sicken you. It certainly sickens me.
A nation mourns the lives of these brave men even if our president does not. Please hold them and their loved ones in your thoughts and prayers today. But don’t forget who Donald Trump puts first.
