Trump behavior graceless in wake of Pittsburgh massacre

It is a heart-troubling time for America today. Hearing President Trump’s unhinged supporters pump fists and chant “lock her up” and “CNN sucks” at a Trump rally immediately after a massacre at a Pittsburgh synagogue, and the mailing of 14 pipe bombs to top Democrats was utterly shocking.

We have a president who is incapable of making a country unite and who refuses to tone down his outrageous rhetoric. We’ve a president who mocked and attacked the targets of the pipe bombs at his rallies.

And Mr. Trump’s refusing to pick up the phone and give a few words of comfort to his predecessors, Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, who were targeted with pipe bombs, was so small and petty. Truly, Mr. Trump’s behavior is graceless. His joking about a bad hair day after a synagogue slaughter was numbing. So dreadful!

The American soul is up for grabs today folks. Please think of your children and grandchildren on election day. Please, please!

God protect our great democracy from the fascists.
