@realDonaldTrump wake up this morning to see you’ve used my Son murder to further your campaign of hate, how dare you. You are a disgrace.
— tweet from Australian parent Sandra Jackson over Donald Trump exploiting her son’s murder in what was NOT a terrorist attack as Trump wants the world to believe
Speaking of god-awful lack of shame (see today’s previous post about Mitch McConnell and his Republican cronies in the Senate)…
The headline over the Washington Post story about an angry Australian couple says it all: Parents furious over Trump’s false terrorism claim.
It’s a hard fact of life that there is nothing more painful than losing a child.
So leave it to Donald Trump, whom God has supposedly placed “back in the White House” according to so many of Trump’s Christian supporters, to intensify the pain of Australian parents whose children were killed by a madman last year.
Not a Muslim terrorist, mind you. The young woman and another young man were killed by a mentally ill madman in a hostel.
(And what if he had been a mentally ill man who happened to have been a Muslim: Are all murders committed by those who claim to be Christians who are members of churches plain murders while all slayings committed by Muslims are acts of global terrorism?)
Both grieving families woke up to their children’s murders on a White House list of terrorist attacks that the Trump Administration claims were neglected by the media.
Read the story here.
And here’s the response of the grieving mother from the young woman’s family:
Will Trump–who supposedly is “a changed man” since supposedly giving his life to Christ (which never happened) do the Christian thing and make a public apology to the grieving families in Australia and the entire angry continent of Australia?
People who get hurt every day by Trump’s language and behavior are just so much “collateral damage” in Trump’s war on anyone anywhere who doesn’t bow down to him in this world.
He’s a sick, sick man.
