Being president means that when there is a major national tragedy -- say, like some asshole shooting up a school and killing 17 people -- you have to go to where it happened, make an official statement, and comfort the victims.


Two days after the shooting at Parkland, Trump traveled down to Florida, spent a total of 35 minutes in the hospital and visited with all of two victims. He also posed for some photos, like the one you see above. This picture is now his official Twitter background photo. Let's take a look at the whole thing in all of it's glory, shall we?

Marco Rubio looks like he's posing for the opening credits of a CBS procedural, but hell, at least he's appropriate. Trump, however, is standing there with a big smile on his face, doing a "thumb's up" sign, looking like he just broke ground on a new casino. Who does that?

Trump, I guess, and in multiple pictures.

Melania is a model for crying out loud. Could she not have suggested a slightly more appropriate pose for him? Is this not her area of expertise?

As many on Twitter pointed out, this stands in stark contrast to Obama's behavior in the face of similar tragedies.
