This story pretty much writes itself. Self centered ..Donald Trump congratulates himself in the midst of mourning of the Orlando Massacre.
I literally am watching Florida dividing and hating like I have never seen, including family members against family members. One has no concept of the hatred coming across from Trump supporters and the people who stand against his rhetoric. The man is a powder keg of hatred and is not only stoking hate but causing great distress within the family unit.
Like much of what Trump does, it inspired a wave of responses. It angered Republicans and Democrats as well as some celebrities who criticized with a familiar line: that Trump is self-centered even in moments of tragedy — the shooting killed at least 50 people and is the deadliest mass shooting in American history. The motives of suspected shooter Omar Mateen were not immediately clear.
John Legend, the singer and songwriter, Chris Sacca, the venture capitalist and George Takei, best known for his role on Star Trek, called Trump out on Twitter.
"Appreciate the congrats," Trump tweeted
Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism, I don't want congrats, I want toughness & vigilance. We must be smart!
Donald Trump faced a backlash on Twitter after tweeting his response to the deadly Orlando shooting Sunday morning, when he acknowledged “congrats” for “being right” on terrorism.
This is sickening and republicans and democrats hit his twitter account. I am having an upsetting day here in Central Florida along with seeing so much happening in this state.
Please give blood. Please remember to light a candle and pray or hope that we have no further violence down here but it is looking rather bad. There is a lot of gay bashing, Muslim hating, rabid racism and aggression and disrespecting women.
Five miles from our home a 13 year old girl was physically dragged out in an attempted kidnapping standing by her Mother by a man who did not know them at all. There were people in that store that did not help. The Mother held on to her child and this all happened in broad daylight. I don’t know how much is hatred fueled by Trump and the GOP or people have just gone mad. I have no clue but terribly depressed today.
