Dan Rather on Donald Trump’s Lack of empathy.

Trump Car 2While Donald Trump had no trouble tweeting congratulations to a Republican shit stain that body slammed a reporter, he has not even acknowledged the heroic actions of a college graduate and an army veteran father of four.  So much for Republicans giving a shit about Veterans.

These two men gave their lives protecting the lives of two teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab.  They didn’t have too. Earlier I saw a video of a man sucker punching a guy with cerebral palsy, and two onlookers did absolutely nothing about it but walked away as if it were nothing.  In the larger scheme of things, we’re well on our way to making these kind of incidents the norm.

If there’s an act of hate spewed out by the bigotry, hatred, and racism of those who support the GOP (and there are many) they completely ignore the sacrifice and blood shed of those heroes who don’t fit their political agenda.  It wouldn’t surprise me one bit if by next Memorial Day, the Fake News Crowd spews, “Remember those who died in battle, except for the Democrats, the black soldiers, the Hispanic soldiers, etc. etc. etc.”

Dan is probably wasting his breath here.  But the point is well made.
