TRUMP SAYS THATS TOO BAD AFTER CRASH OF USS JOHN MCCAIN

Source: Newsweek

President Donald Trumpís initial reaction to the crash of the USS John McCain with a merchant ship east of Singapore that left five sailors injured and ten missing was: ďThatís too bad.Ē

Trump responded to the crash when reporters shouted questions at him late Sunday when he arrived on the South Lawn of the White House on the presidential helicopter Marine One. The president has returned to Washington D.C. after a 17-day vacation spent mostly at his golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey.

22. This was probably the first he had heard of this.

I doubt he is kept in the loop about a lot of things. I am sure the gop is scrambling right now to assemble panels to research both these maritime accidents. They held many, many hearings about Benghazi where "4 loyal Americans died". How about the navy personnel, are they not important? Where are Issa or Gowdy?

the military but really couldn't give a sh*t about them.

15. When I heard about this last night I was wondering what he'd say about it, this actually...

...is "milder" than I expected.

I figured he'd make a connection between this and the fact that the current John McCain was captured.

18. The ship is named after Sen. McCain's father and grandfather.

Not the Senator. Both were admirals in the US Navy.

FYI.

He heard "John McCain crashed and sunk..." and his response was "That's too bad," with a smirk on his face.

25. Its been about week and half now since those three marines have been lost

did this f**ing commander and thief say anything -----------yet

NOPE


But he's going prime time tonight and throw more bodies and money our collective treasury into Afghanistan, 500 billion and counting.
That money sure could be used for roads, educations, high speed rail, clean water, food, air, but I digress, this sh*t for brains team don't have that as an agenda, they want to make deals with Russians

reminds me that this monster is the commander-in-chief, I will remind him of 45's reaction to the injured and missing people who are in his charge.

How callous. How uncaring.

35. I'd like to give the asshat a HUUUGE benefit of doubt.

Perhaps he didn't know that 10 sailors are missing, thereby spouting out a stupid remark just to shut the reporters up.

If he DID know ---- then just fuck him.
