As we all know, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche were murdered and Micah Fletcher was injured after they confronted Trump supporter and white supremacist Jeremy Joseph Christian, who was harassing a pair of teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab.
The silence from Trump was deafening, though he managed to spout off congrats to reporter-strangling Gianforte’s win in Montana and four nonsense tweets about fake news, and one self-congratulatory tweet about his AnywhereBut Home Tour, he couldn’t find words to express anything about the Portland attack.
But FINALLY today, Trump took time out from his busy day of doing nothing to twat off on the Twitters:
The violent attacks in Portland on Friday are unacceptable. The victims were standing up to hate and intolerance. Our prayers are w/ them.
— President Trump (@POTUS) May 29, 2017
What a mensch. He still doesn’t say the victims’ names, or say the word terror.
