Trump's Stiff Chant Of Uvalde Victims' Names At NRA Rally Curdles Critics' Blood

He ended his speech praising the National Rifle Association with his trademark "dance" step.

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.

Despite the tragedy, Trump hailed the NRA in his speech at its convention in Houston and ended his remarks with his trademark clenched fists and “cha-cha-cha” dance move.

16. I watched CBS Saturday Morning earlier, they showed Trump reading the names, with the bell, BUT

left off the end when he praised the NRA and did his little dance. Fuck you CBS, you're part of the problem.

3. A real President:

“Let the little children come to me," Jesus said, "and do not hinder them — for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."

Charlotte. Daniel. Olivia. Josephine. Ana. Dylan. Madeleine. Catherine. Chase. Jesse. James. Grace. Emilie. Jack. Noah. Caroline. Jessica. Benjamin. Avielle. Allison.

God has called them all home. For those of us who remain, let us find the strength to carry on, and make our country worthy of their memory.

May God bless and keep those we've lost in His heavenly place. May He grace those we still have with His holy comfort. And may He bless and watch over this community, and the United States of America. (Applause.) - BHO Newtown, CT

20. And of course the real president spoke those lovely words at a community memorial service

and not a convention of gun lobbyists and manufacturers who were all complicit in the deaths. And Obama had met privately, off camera, to offer personal condolences to each family (if they wanted to meet with him) prior to the service. Thank you for posting this, although It breaks my heart that there was a reason to do so.

But not in two party America, the Major Media butter their toast on both sides…no choice, really.

While he used the orphaned baby at the hospital, the pee-resident did not visit any of the eight hospitalized survivors.

The Worst Part of Trump’s Performance at NRA’s Convention Wasn’t When He Read Uvalde Victims’ Names

It was the little dance.

Hitler did a jig.



France had just signed the surrender.

victims if they were named Donald Trump (and not Donald Trump, Jr. either - he wouldn't care).

No guns were allowed at the NRA event. I thought guns made us safer. The NRA is informing us they don't make us safer.

Why even do this if guns aren't the problem? Why use these children in such a sick display? This doesn't make Trump or the NRA look caring or compassionate.

22. It was just another rally to him.

He reads (or tries to) whatever is put in front of him on the teleprompter. Which is basically a lazy, cookie-cutter crapfest written by a lazy speechwriter. Mostly a litany of grievances. Same shit, different day. Calling his fuck-ups "stumbles" is being generous. When they say Biden is "in mental decline," they're really talking about Trump. The fucker can't even get the name of his own social media outlet right. EVERY rally is like this, right down to his bizarre attempts at dancing at the end. The only difference last night was the Gong Show stunt where he rattled off the deceased childrens' and teachers' names, and blathered some empty platitudes about them.

This is so fuked up!



Who in their right mind would read deceased names of babies that were shot by weapons you are trying to keep at a gun Convention? This way morbid and another assault on the parents of those deceased parents!

32. I wasn't aware he had a "signature move"....

other than the scooping motion where he steals everyone's money.

I don't believe I care to see his "cha-cha" move. His lardness moves with all the grace and speed of a glacier, so I'll skip that if no one objects (and screw you if you do).

This man has no soul. I'm not entirely sure he's human.
