None of the Patients Being Treated at El Paso Hospital After Shooting Agreed to Meet Trump

When the Trump campaign swooped down on The Miami valley Hospital in Dayton yesterday to produce a freaking political ad….
The travelling press was not allowed to accompany the group, so that the cretins trying to re-elect the shit-for-brains could pick and choose who he met with.
El Paso was later in the day, so if they make another campaign ad we’ll likely see it today.
But before this other piece of propaganda comes out, read the following in the Washington Post so you will know the whole story:
“EL PASO — On a day when President Trump vowed to tone down his rhetoric and help the country heal following two mass slayings, he did the opposite — lacing his visits Wednesday to El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, with a flurry of attacks on local leaders and memorializing his trips with grinning thumbs-up photos.
None of the eight patients still being treated at University Medical Center in El Paso agreed to meet with Trump when he visited the hospital, UMC spokesman Ryan Mielke said. Two victims who already had been discharged returned to the hospital with family members to meet with the president.
“This is a very sensitive time in their lives,” Mielke said. “Some of them said they didn’t want to meet with the president. Some of them didn’t want any visitors.”
Before Trump’s visit Wednesday, however, some of the hospitalized victims accepted visits from a number of city and county elected officials, as well as Reps. Veronica Escobar (D-Tex.) and Jesús “Chuy” García (D-Ill.).”
The Trump campaign doesn’t give a shit about the people of Dayton or El Paso, they only care about their value as props for his BS campaign ads.
Remember this as you see the photos coming out.
And tell your friends.
