This is very sad and completely unhinged, which seems to be our Stable Genius’ trademark work. Take it away, WaPo:
The parents of British teenager Harry Dunn met with President Trump at the White House on Tuesday, only to be told that the woman British police say was involved in the car crash that killed their son was in the same building and ready to meet them. Dunn, 19, was killed Aug. 27 when his motorcycle was struck by a car that police say was driven by 42-year-old American Anne Sacoolas, who was driving on the wrong side of the road at the time. Sacoolas, the wife of a U.S. government official, claimed diplomatic immunity under international law, which allowed her to return to the United States.
White House officials were skeptical of having Dunn’s parents and Sacoolas in the West Wing at the same time, but Trump was keen on having a “hug and make up moment,” according to a person with knowledge of the discussions. Trump believed he could solve the problem, the official said. Appearing on “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday, Dunn’s parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn…say Trump offered his condolences before quickly alerting them that Sacoolas was in the building. “It took your breath away when he mentioned it the first time,” Dunn’s father said…With no prior knowledge that a meeting had been set up, Dunn’s parents declined to participate, saying that a meeting should take place on British soil and at a time when they felt more prepared.
It’s like he thought he was scripting a heart-warming resolution to the drama that was building before breaking for a commercial. Seriously, how deranged do you have to be to think that this would end well?
His narcissism knows no boundaries, let alone empathy for anyone else.
