This is a real photograph taken tonight of Donald Trump’s cheat sheet preparing him to talk to victims of mass shootings gathered in the State Dining Room at the White House. “Fix it!” said Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was murdered a week ago today at school in Parkland Florida. He told the president he was “pissed,” that after the first such shooting there should never have been another.
Chip Somodevilla of Getty Images took this photo of the president’s hands holding a note suggesting how to talk to them. Some takeaways:
- President Trump needs talking points to talk to families affected by gun massacres
- President Trump does not wear his wedding ring
- President Trump has his cuffs monogrammed with his presidential number
- But wait – He needs somebody to remind him to say, or create an affect of: “I hear you.”
What are your takeaways, Blue Jersey?
