Cameras captured list of five pointers Trump held for listening session with Parkland kids

?ops=scalefit_720_noupscale

At a “listening session” with victims of gun violence on Wednesday, President Donald Trump needed a reminder to listen.

We know this because Trump ― or one of his advisers ― helpfully wrote it down on a cheat sheet he carried into the meeting.

Cameras captured the list of five pointers while Trump held it in his hands during the session. Point No. 5 on the list reads, simply, “I hear you.”

In the president’s defense, it’s not unusual to bring notes to a meeting. But to need a reminder to let gun violence survivors know you’re listening to them, while at a “listening session” organized for that explicit purpose is ... well, very on-brand for Trump.

The guest list for Wednesday’s session included students and families affected by last week’s shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people. It was an emotional affair, as survivors of gun violence recalled lost siblings, frequently struggling to hold back tears.

2. We see you.

A President so dense he needs a list of the most mundane talking points. We also see the vanity-plated cuffs and fancyschmancy manicure, and neither can disguise the pitifully tiny hands of this incompetent.

4. Only a sociopath would need a written note to tell himself how to FEEL.

Wonder who wrote it for him. Sad. Very sad.

6. He really is a dullard, isnt he?


It would not surprise me if he had notes to remind him to smile and look interested.

On another topic — Has he ditched his wedding ring? Or has he ever worn one since marrying Melania? Not that a ring means anything. My husband has not worn his wedding ring since the earliest days of our marriage because he worked in jobs where it was dangerous to wear a ring. I doubt it would fit now that he is retired.
