ALL over the mainstream media today and yesterday there has been outrage, outrage I tell you, about a report that a baby injured in the El Paso shooting was brought back to the hospital for a photo op with Trump.
A hospital official confirms to CNN that this is the baby who was brought back to the hospital to meet with Trump and FLOTUS after the child had been discharged. The two month old’s parents, Jordan and Andre Anchondo died protecting him during the El Paso shooting. pic.twitter.com/J468ygdPnM— Jim Acosta (@Acosta) August 9, 2019
Parents of this baby were killed by the El Paso mass murderer as they shielded his body from bullets. The baby was brought back to the hospital just for a photo-op with Trump and Melania, where a thumbs up and grin were considered an appropriate response to a baby being orphaned. pic.twitter.com/IDyljL343A— Christian Christensen (@ChrChristensen) August 9, 2019

AIDE: The baby’s parents were murdered in the El Paso shooting.— Brian Tyler Cohen (@briantylercohen) August 9, 2019
TRUMP: Got it.
AIDE: This has to be a solemn photo.
TRUMP: Of course.
AIDE: No smiling and NO THUM—
TRUMP: Would you relax? I get it.
Except, the family of the baby says they wanted to meet the president. Oops.
From the Washington Post:
Tito Anchondo wishes people would stop politicizing his family’s tragedy.
Anchondo, who lost his beloved brother and sister-in-law in the rampage by an El Paso Walmart on Saturday, said he wanted to take his orphaned nephew to University Medical Center on Wednesday to meet the president and first lady. The 2-month-old suffered two broken fingers in the shooting but survived after his parents, Andre and Jordan Anchondo, shielded him from the gunfire and were slain themselves.
Tito Anchondo said he sought to meet the president to share his family’s grievous pain. “He was just there as a human being, consoling us and giving his condolences,” he said about Trump in an interview outside his family’s auto-body shop in south-central El Paso.
Wow. How pathetic that the media is just lying through their teeth about this to get at Trump.
Tito says that his family is Republican!
Anchondo previously told NPR that his family is Republican and his murdered brother had supported Trump.
The president “wasn’t there to be pushing any kind of political agenda,” he said, describing “a private conversation between human beings.”
Asked if he felt consoled by the conversation, he said, “Yes, definitely.”
You all know I criticize el presidente when I feel that he has done something inappropriate, and it happens often. But in this case, the media is completely lying in order to criticize him, and it is truly disgusting. And they KNOW that their scumbag followers on social media will mock without actually looking for facts to back up their idiot behavior.
