Trump’s Response To The Oregon Shooting: ‘These Things Happen’
Instead of thoughtful anger, which is the correct response, offered by a real president, The Donald verbally shrugged his shoulders when asked to respond to the Oregon massacre.
While Obama said, “thoughts and prayers are not enough,” Donald Trump literally said, “these things happen.”
Yes, you read that correctly.
When asked what he would do as president in regards to the horrific epidemic of mass shootings, Trump said:
“You’re always going to have problems. I mean, we have millions and millions of people, we have millions of sick people all over the world — it can happen all over the world, and it does happen all over the world, and it does happen all over the world, by the way, but this is sort of unique to this country, the school shootings. And you’re going to have difficulty no matter what… You’re going to have these things happen and it’s a horrible thing to behold, horrible… It’s not politically correct to say, but you’re going to have difficulty and that will be for the next million years, there’s going to be difficulty, and people are going to slip through the cracks.
After a bit more rambling he says:
“What are you going to do, institutionalize everybody?… That’s the way the world works, and that’s the way the world always has worked.”
