On the Offering of Condolences

April 30, 2019 at 12:55 am (Uncategorized)

After the massacre in New Zealand, Trump tweeted:

“My warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand after the horrible massacre in the Mosques.”

“Warmest sympathy” ? “Best wishes” ?

I know Trump doesn’t do empathy, but has he never signed a condolences card? Apparently not because after shooting in Poway, Trump offered his “warmest condolences.”

I know there’s so much other shit to be offended by, but getting this right seems like a slam-dunk. It’s not.
