The real reason Trump insisted on going to Squirrel Hill TODAY

In the coming days he has scheduled several rallies. He didn't want the optics of leaving the site of such a horrible tragedy and going to a hateful rally afterward. He is just special deplorable.

3. The real reason is that Trump is a narcissist.

Everything must be about him. He must be the bride at every wedding and the baby at every christening. (With citation credit to Alice Roosevelt Longworth.)

5. "...and the corpse at every funeral"

Just finishing the quote.

However, I look forward to the day when he will be present at his own.

7. I was unsure about using that part of the quote.

I was not confident that any Secret Service agents monitoring DU would understand it was not a threat.

8. Well, it is actually part of an historic quote.

And wishing him dead is not the same as threatening him. The other side has been much worse than we could ever dream of being where that is concerned. If everyone who wished him off the face of the earth was considered a threat there would not be enough prisons to hold them all.

9. Clearly so.

Alice Roosevelt Longworth was speaking of her father, Teddy Roosevelt. Still and all, if the Secret Service is monitoring DU (and I assume they are), I can't be sure they would Google the quote.

Even if you are paranoid, it doesn't mean they're not out to get you.

6. I don't think Trump's bright enough to see that.

imo he's such an extreme narcissist he thought he'd be welcomed.

10. Yes, to get it out of the way.

So he doesn't have to interrupt his packed schedule of hate fests.
