Mom of Texas Shooting Victim: "Talking With Trump Was Like Talking To A Toddler" GTSA

From USA TODAY
William Cummings of USA TODAY wrote:President Trump spent more than an hour with people who lost family members and the survivors of the May 18 shooting at a Texas high school that left 10 dead and more than a dozen wounded.

The press was not invited into the meeting, which was held at a Coast Guard base outside Houston. But the reaction to the president's appearance from one the victims' mothers showed that even Trump's effort to act as comforter-in-chief can be polarizing.

Rhonda Hart, whose 14-year-old daughter, Kimberly Vaughan, was killed in the shooting said Trump repeatedly used the word "wacky" to describe the shooter and the trench coat he wore.

Hart said she told Trump, "Maybe if everyone had access to mental health care, we wouldn’t be in the situation."

Hart, who served in the Army, said she also suggested hiring veterans to help watch over schools.

"And arm them?" Trump asked, according to Hart.

"No," she replied. But Trump "kept mentioning" arming classroom teachers.

"It was like talking to a toddler," Hart said.

In contrast, Pamela Stanich — whose 17-year-old son, Jared Black, was among the those killed — presented Trump with a family statement and a copy of her son’s eulogy.

In a Facebook post, Stanich said she was "sick of a--holes bashing our President."

"He met with us privately and showed sincerity, compassion, and concern on making our schools safer across the nation. He hugged us and was gracious with his condolences," Stanich said. "Changes are coming for the good. Thank you Mr. Trump."

Trump has previously been criticized for appearing unfeeling in times of tragedy, including when he sharply critiqued a mayor in Puerto Rico in the aftermath of a deadly hurricane and fought with a Gold Star military family.

But Trump has at times displayed a softer side. On Wednesday, he returned a hug from an 8-year-old boy with muscular dystrophy who attended a White House event where he signed legislation to give patients the right to try experimental treatments.

After the shooting at Santa Fe high school and the one in Parkland, Fla. that left 17 people dead — two of at least 21 school shootings so far in 2018 — Trump has vowed to improve school safety. He formed a school safety commission to explore the problem.

After Parkland, the president publicly considered backing gun control measure like increasing the age requirement to buy a long gun. But Trump turned from that approach and advocates "hardening" schools as a target over increased gun control.

Like most toddlers, when Trump sets his mind to something, he stays on it.  In this case, he still insists on arming teachers to solve school shootings in America.  This shows you that Trump doesn't think, logically or otherwise.  Let me breakdown how well this idea works.

School shooting is happening.  Police are called.  Police will be looking for someone with a gun (style won't matter).  THEY ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WITH A GUN!  They spot the teacher with a gun.  He/She gets arrested.  The real shooter is still on the loose.  How smart was that?  This just puts more people in danger, and more echoes of "thoughts and prayers" coming from the lawmakers and Trump himself.

Thoughts and prayers are good when it leads to action.  Thoughts and prayers are just empty sentiments when they lead to inaction.  God forbid there's another shooting.  If you arm teachers and the wrong person is arrested, how will you comfort the families of the victims?  Will you, the lawmakers take action, or will you take the same stance by offering thoughts and prayers hoping that will change things?

Just saying.
