    You're right-he is not. Trump is a moral cripple.

    What does that say about his supporters? Nothing good it appears.

    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

      More on Trump's duplicity in his speech:

      https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

      'Earlier this year in his State of the Union address, President Trump described to the nation how the Texas border city of El Paso once had “extremely high rates of violent crime” and was considered “one of our nation’s most dangerous cities.” Then he turned it into the living argument for his border wall.'

      '“With a powerful barrier in place,” he went on, “El Paso is one of the safest cities in our country. Simply put, walls work and walls save lives.”'

      'In this West Texas border city, founded 360 years ago as an outpost of the Spanish empire, those words festered. So did words Mr. Trump repeated at a rally he held on the city’s outskirts a few weeks later. “Murders, murders, murders,” he said, in reference to immigrants, as the crowd chanted, “Build the wall!”'

        How can he be so out of touch with REAL?
        He's talking about Americans interested in the nation as a whole, and not about Democrats, who are solely interested in expanding their form of Socialist power.

        If you guys aren't careful, you're going to start the next civil war, and find yourselves locked in the crosshairs of every real American. You will fully realize the old Chinese curse: "Be careful what you wish for, because you might get it."

            One of the major ones, certainly, but not the only one.

              Remember what Lincoln said.
              Lincoln said a lot of things, many of them racist and self-serving. To which of his many comments do you refer?

                More Trump misrepresentations?

                https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/no...cid=spartandhp

                'A spokesperson for University Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, said none of the eight patients currently being treated for injuries from last weekend's mass shooting agreed to meet with President Trump during his visit Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.'

                '"This is a very sensitive time in their lives. Some of them said they didn't want to meet with the president, some of them didn't want any visitors," UMC spokesman Ryan Mielke told the newspaper, although he added that two already-discharged victims returned to the hospital to meet with Trump.'

                'The White House has touted what it said was a warm reception for the president Wednesday in both El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, the sites of a pair of mass shootings last weekend that left more than 30 dead and dozens injured.'

                '"The love, respect & enthusiasm were there for all to see," Trump tweeted Wednesday evening. He said "the Fake News worked overtime trying to disparage me and the two trips."'

                'White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement that the president and first lady Melania Trump were "received very warmly by not just victims and their families, but by the many members of medical staff who lined the hallways to meet them. It was a moving visit for all involved."'

                'The El Paso visit was particularly contentious, with many of Trump's detractors drawing a line between the president's rhetoric and the suspected gunman, who has been tied to a racist, anti-immigrant manifesto that spoke of a Hispanic "invasion" of the U.S., similar to comments Trump himself has used against migrants.'

                    Trump always has to be center stage, no matter what the occasion:

                    https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/08/polit...age/index.html

                    'Some of President Donald Trump's own aides conceded Thursday that his visits to two cities in mourning did not go as planned, as a new video revealed he bragged about crowd sizes while visiting patients at an El Paso hospital'

                    '"That was some, that was some crowd," Trump said, according to cell phone video from one attendee. "And we had twice the number outside. And then you had this crazy Beto. Beto had like 400 people in a parking lot, they said his crowd was wonderful."'

                    'White House officials blocked reporters and their cameras from entering the two hospitals during his visits to Ohio and Texas this week, a move they said was out of respect for the patients' privacy. But according to one person familiar with the President's reaction, the President lashed out at his staff for keeping the cameras away from him, complaining that he wasn't receiving enough credit. Aides had feared a moment like the one that is now going viral — where the President appears to focus on himself in front of those still recovering from a tragedy.'

                    'Trump associates the city of El Paso with his first political rally of 2019, where he made his case for a border wall and feuded with Beto O'Rourke, who would soon announce he was running for president and held a counterprotest in a park nearby. Trump's campaign still owes the city of El Paso more than $500,000 in police and public safety fees from that visit.'
                    'While at least two top staffers publicly defended the President's trip — with one longtime aide claiming he was treated like "a rock star" at the Dayton, Ohio, hospital — multiple staffers agreed behind the scenes that it wasn't successful from the administration's viewpoint. They conceded Trump spent too much time lashing out at local officials, who Trump criticized after they praised his interactions with patients but criticized his stance on guns.'

                        A post by Mountain Man addressing another poster and not the post and a now unnecessary reply from Half Pint John were removed.

                        Yet again, address the post and not the poster .

                          Trump's failure in El Paso:

                          https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opini...cid=spartandhp

                          'If consoling the nation in a time of desperate need is a vital and yet simple task of the American presidency, Donald J. Trump failed miserably this week.'

                          'From his flight on Wednesday to Dayton, Ohio, to this sprawling high-desert city on the Mexican border, the 45th occupant of the White House not only littered his consolation tour with petty insults — but just to rub salt in the wound, doses of renewed racism. Yet most striking was how alone and outnumbered the president was: rejected, ostracized and told to go home.'

                          Trump acted as if his visit to Dayton and El Paso was all about him-it wasn't. He failed as a president and a human being.

                              Pathetic.

                              https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...cid=spartandhp

                              'By the time President Trump arrived in El Paso on Wednesday, on the second leg of a trip to meet with people affected by mass shootings in two cities, he was frustrated that his attacks on his political adversaries had resulted in more coverage than the cheery reception he received at a hospital in Dayton, Ohio, the first stop on his trip. So he screamed at his aides to begin producing proof that in El Paso people were happy to see him.'
