Trump Shooting off His Mouth

Jun 1, 2020

When rioting took place in Minneapolis, Minnesota over the murder of George Floyd, Trump jumped out on Twitter to quote an old, racist police chief from Miami from 1967 who had threatened, “When the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

Then Twitter tagged Trump’s tweet and deleted it, saying that it promoted violence.

So who is the thug, now? No doubt, when his handlers couldn’t control him, big capitalist conservatives had to remind him that shooting may start a riot, but often doesn’t end it.

Anyway, he had to roll his comments back and gave the lame explanation that he was just concerned about somebody getting hurt during looting and shooting (haha) and blah, blah, blah.

The only shooting he was doing as usual, was shooting off his mouth!
