President Trump doesn’t “need” to give a statement about shit if he doesn’t feel it’s worthy or motivated by fairness.
Pressure is mounting on the US president, Donald Trump, to make a comment on the racist attack in Portland, Oregon that left two men dead.
Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche, 23, and Rick Best, 53, were fatally stabbed on Friday while intervening to stop a racist attack on a Muslim teenager on a commuter train.
The pair have been honoured as heroes by Portland’s mayor and the FBI, but the president has remained silent, despite tweeting 10 times on Sunday on topics ranging from healthcare to fake news.
Pleas are now mounting on social media for Trump to make a statement on the attack, which was carried out by a suspected white supremacist.
Dan Rather, the veteran American journalist, led the charge on Facebook, calling on Trump to acknowledge the “brave Americans who died at the hands of someone who, when all the facts are collected, we may have every right to call a terrorist”.
Come to think of it, if we’re going to enact the practice of demanding that Trump give a statement for every egregious violent and deadly act born of nefarious human agenda, why doesn’t the Left demand he give one about the murder of 8-month-old Reese Bowman?
Feels so good to burst that delicate bubble known as Leftist hypocrisy.
