“Former President Donald Trump’s mangled recitation of the names of the 21 Uvalde, Texas, mass shooting victims at the National Rifle Association’s convention on Friday made Twitter critics’ blood run cold.
The names of the 19 children and two teachers, broken up into hardly recognizable syllables in Trump’s stumbling pronunciation, were interspersed with the funereal sound of a gong.”
Prominent NRA supporters Lee Greenwood, Don McLean, Larry Gatlin and Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick pulled out of the NRA Convention in Houston, Texas, they realized it would be disrespectful and hurtful to attend less than a week after 19 schoolchildren and two teachers were massacred at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas.
But Donald Trump, a sociopath with no empathy, decency or sense or propriety, gave a speech at the NRA convention where gun merchants had assault rifles on display, the same killing machines that the shooter used to murder the defenseless schoolchildren.
To add insult to injury Trump read the names of the 21 Uvalde mass shooting victims, predictably butchering the pronunciation of the Hispanic names.
Any pretense that the reading of the names was meant as a dignified and solemn tribute to the victims was nullified by the theatrical sounding of a gong.Trump ending his speech with his patented spastic dance moves.
The twice-impeached former president is a perfect representation of the typical clueless and heartless NRA supporter.
