Who grieved better?

Are we really having this conversation on DU?

In the wake of white supremacists murders in El Paso and Dayton we are talking about Biden and Beto and who grieved better/best? Unfugging believable.

I will tell you who is ACTUALLY DEALING FIRSTHAND WITH THE GRIEF! It is the survivors and the family of the loved ones that were slaughtered. The young mom and dad who died protecting their baby. Another mom called her other and said she was shot in the head and to care for her children. She is dead now. Yet here we are making it a competition between Beto and Biden. Who grieved better? For the love of the Gawd, please stop.

Want to see grief? Here is Obama returning from Sandy Hook.









Don't. Full Stop!

Beto and Biden as did other candidates took action and their words were heartbreaking in the ongoing battle. Joe blew me away with his speech.
We already had an ass do a photo Op smiling and giving a thumbs up while talking about the size of his *****. We are better than this and do not need to pit one Democrat against another.

3. Thanks she! Well said. I was shocked at the petty

 

Beto vs Biden competition being pushed here by a poster earlier. It was nonsensical and very unnecessary.

You have the right priorities in mind.

9. I cry at least once a day, just on the things we as a nation do everyday in the name of...

 

...our nation.

Jeeze, I wish it would end.

10. It's disheartening.

 

Such small and petty nonsense while the country is grieving for these families.

Thank you, sheshe.

12. It is not abnormal. Most of us grieve with those who have lost their lives and loved ones.

 

Trump is signal in his utter incapability of feeling WITH other people.

He is crippled. He is only half a person.

But we can still care. We can still love each other. He can't take that away from us.

15. The primaries forum can become a real cesspool at times

 

It's why I haven't posted as much. Don't want to get dragged into the idiocy this time around.

16. We needed all our Candidates' heartfelt words

 

especially on our National healing day.

It was sad that not everyone could get behind that.. Mahalo for your OP, she.. reminding us how a real live, human being of a President grieves in time of unspeakable tragedy.

17. I think it goes to show who will exploit-for-political-profit, and who will simply empathize

 

I think it goes to show that even many an armchair wannabe-politician will exploit tragedy for political profit, while many others (more, I hope) will simply empathize, or even share, with the grieving.

The former have little more to offer the national dialog than bumper-stickers, and certainly warrant ignoring... passively if not actively.

Both Beto and Joe illustrated the measure of their worth this week. Many of us however, failed to.
