A backlash is building over a picture posted by Melania Trump on Twitter that showed her and Donald Trump smiling broadly while holding a baby who was orphaned in the mass shooting in El Paso.
On a visit to El Paso this week, the president flashed a thumbs-up when posing with the two-month-old, whose parents Andre and Jordan Anchondo were shot dead last Saturday. When the picture was posted on the first lady’s Twitter account on Thursday, it prompted outrage.
The orphaned child, named Paul, had been brought back to the hospital – reportedly at the request of White House during the visit by the Trumps on Wednesday. The baby’s uncle, standing next to Donald Trump, is reportedly a Trump supporter, as was the deceased father.

The Trumps have no empathy, no sympathy, no compassion, and no class. There are no depths to which they will not sink.

Photo op worthy of a caption if it was not so disgusting to think of what it said…
THAT child is a orphaned prop who will hopefully look back at this photo some day with the same manner of disgust.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

The Trumps should start a non=revocable $1 million trust fund for that deserving child.

I can’t stop thinking about an aluminum baseball bat in my hands.
All governments lie to their citizen's, but only Americans believe theirs.

One wouldn’t think it was possible but somehow they find new lows.
This is what people without an ounce of compassion or self awareness look like folks.

That is so crazy; the child’s uncle is standing next to Trump & smiling. He’s a fan. So were the parents, according to the story.

It’s heartbreaking, and frustrating, to watch the pathetic self-degradation, and utter loss of human dignity, of those who grovel before the very authoritarian bullies who hate, persecute, and subjugate them.
It’s a very strange world we live in.
