Disgusting is what it is.....

Must be those peaceful protesters. Not rattled. What a pres. should be. Does not hide in basement. realDonaldTrump Arranca Mierda jajajaja 😅 US Secret Service says the security incident was an officer-involved shooting at 17th Street and Pennsylvania Ave., near the White House. I bet he told them to rush him out of the room before reporters could ask too many questions, or worse, relevant questions. He's probably tired of everyone seeing him end the rallies by running out of the room like a spoiled child.

TODAYshow I call total bull 💩 on this Trump publicity stunt. The Secret Service would’ve not let him back in a minute later. This man will do any and everything to gain attention. Do not be fooled by this Fraud. Bunker time? He really looks unconcerned as he shambles out. TODAYshow Ahhh they didn’t get him huh 😞

Cool... Your supposed to concentrate on Gettysburg, then get outraged, and wait for the next news story. The RNC political event doesn’t belong at either venue. The politicization of the White House or a place as sacred as Gettysburg is totally inappropriate. What’s wrong with realDonaldTrump’s tacky DC Hotel? The White House and Gettysburg are National sites, not Trump property.
