Trump always can find or create a tragedy and always make it about himself. Case in point: The Virginia Beach massacre which took the lives of 12 people, the shooter, and injured others.
While residents of Virginia Beach are still reeling over the mass shooting tragedy, Trump played a round of golf and then decided to show up at a North Virginia evangelical church unannounced and unwashed to demand they pray for HIM, even as his press secretary sent out a public statement saying he was there to pray for the victims and their families.
Not only did Trump look like a disheveled and unclean mess, but to take the community's pain over a massacre and make it about himself is unconscionable, even for him.
George Conway laid it out on Twitter:
This is really low.
Trump's actions were so outrageous that Pastor David Platt of McLean Bible Church wrote a letter to his congregation to try and explain to them what happened, apologizing to members who were hurt.
“My aim was in no way to endorse the president, his policies, or his party, but to obey God’s command to pray for our president and other leaders to govern in the way [I Timothy 2] portrays," Pastor Platt wrote.
It wasn't God's command but Donald Trump's and he should not confuse the two.
