White House Response Too Little, To Late
Trump’s Joke About Police Brutality
Today, Sarah Huckabee Saunders said that she believes that Trump was only joking last week whilst speaking to law enforcement, saying something along the lines of;
“Police officers should let suspects heads bang against the doors of their police cars…”
Is that to be categorized as something along the lines of ‘locker room’ type talk?
The response from the White House was too little and so very much too late. The damage has already been done for no other reason than this is typical of Trump, he wears how he really does feel on his sleeve and then promptly either Tweets it or runs his mouth about it.
Then he tries to promptly sweep it under the carpet when he realizes it pissed a lot of people off.
Needless to say, wait for it, because it gets much better folks;
“When you see these towns, when you see these thugs being thrown into the back of a paddy wagon, you just see them thrown in, rough, and I said ‘Please don't be too nice.” I would assume Trump was explaining some imaginary conversation he was having with someone…
What the hell does he mean by "When you see these towns?" Chew on that question, is he suggesting something because the long and short of it it, given his personality he is.
At any rate, he continued with this little gem of pure douchebaggery:
“Like when you guys put somebody in the car and you’re protecting their head, you know, the way you put their hand over, like, don’t hit their head and they’ve just killed somebody, don’t hit their head, I said, ‘You can take that hand away, okay?”
So is that supposed to be funny, does it sound funny at all or does it sound more like a not to subtle suggestion that it’s perfectly okay in certain circumstances to use police brutality?
And while many cheered what he said on Friday, police departments across the country sat back and thought it over and were pretty quick to quite disagree with and condemn Trump for his comments.
When you have a president who openly endorses police brutality you undo all of the work departments across the country and the former Director of the FBI tried to accomplish.
That was to bring police and the communities that they serve together.
Sadly, this is just another showing of Trump’s true nature and intent, dividing and destroying America, piece by little piece.
