The worst mass shooting ever in the US: Orlando, Florida

June 12, 2016


Sunday morning we woke up to the horrifying news of the largest mass shooting ever in the United states. Leaving 50 dead and 53 seriously injured. The massacre took place at Pulse, a gay night club in the midst of Pride Week celebration.

As expected, the presidential candidates weighed in.

Hillary Clinton's first tweet was empathetic to the national horror, offering prayers to those affected and asking for calm as we awaited for more information.

The Donald took to twitter and gave a poorly written news report of things and of course fear monger.

As more information came in it became clear the horrific events that transpired over night in Orlando were not only a hate crime, but apparently also carried out by a lone wolf ISIS sympathizer.

Trump took again to the twitters and delighted in "being right" Trump making sure to "appreciate" all the congratulations he received.

You tell me - who is more presidential?????

Later in the day, President Obama offered compassion and outrage. Perfectly capturing the moment reminding us that "... no act of hate or terror will ever change who we are or the values that make us Americans."

Can you imagine Trump giving a speech like this with anywhere near the same level of comfort and grief that President Obama did? He lacks the empathy, compassion and gravitas.

UPDATE: June 12 6:45pm

Apparently the Muslim ban is no longer "just a suggestion"

  1. Yeah and look how many like Trump got on his comments compared to hers! How can you try and twist his tweets into something they are not! More than twice the likes on all his tweets says a lot! You really don't know what you are talking about dude!

  2. Sandra,
    Respectfully - social media bluster aren't a barometer of support. If that was the case - Trump would be running against Senator Sanders. Don't mistake the loud few for the people.
