Wow. Mr. Trump is really having a bad week. Plummeting poll numbers, John Bolton, another former minion turning on him, Facebook taking down his campaign’s ads featuring a Nazi symbol, and now the Supreme Court dealing him another blow with their decision to protect DACA, at least for now.
Here is President Obama’s response on Twitter:
“Eight years ago this week, we protected young people who were raised as part of our American family from deportation. Today, I’m happy for them, their families, and all of us. We make look different and come from everywhere, but what makes us American are our shared ideals.”
And here are Mr. Trump’s two tweets:
“These horrible & politically charged decisions coming out of the Supreme Court are shotgun blasts into the face of people who are proud to call themselves Republicans or Conservatives…“
“Do you get the feeling the Supreme Court doesn’t like me?“
And, here’s a little nugget from the Dear Leader’s interview with the Wall Street Journal:
”I did something good. I made Juneteenth very famous. It’s actually an important event, an important time. But nobody had ever heard of it.”
And finally, I’m sharing two videos with you which are further studies in contrast. The first is one taken in 2014 when President Obama decided on a spur-of-the-moment stroll through Lafayette Park. The second video is what occurred 2 1/2 weeks ago when the park was cleared of peaceful protesters so Trump could pose in front of St. John’s Episcopal Church. You provide the commentary.
You may have noticed that the quote from Obama is in larger font than the rest of this post. I swear I didn’t do it on purpose. This is the weird glitch I posted about the other day, and I haven’t been able to figure out how to fix it.
