How can anyone not at the very least give their head a shake and pause to think on this.
The President has innocent people tear gassed so he can have a photo op with a Bible.
Really let that sink in.
I’d be surprised but I’m really not
The evangelicals will eat that up even though he’s arguably the least Christian man in America
'Law and order.' Trump returns to 2016 theme as violence spreads after George Floyd death
The photos out of Providence are awful. It wasn't just the mall they hit.
It was 100% staged.
Who is coordinating these attacks?
F-E-A-R + ignorance
I’m sure there are people (white ones) on this Board who can justify it and spin it the usual way (heck I heard a caller around 6:30 yesterday morning on WEEI blame this on JFK policies in the early 60’s before finishing it off with Trump 2020.
There was coordination all over social media about looting various malls. Natick Collection was one of them, so the cops showed up in force and closed Wegmans, sending everyone home. I guess like 40-50 cars all with NY plates showed up to do some shit and they broke it up.
Looting threats lead to increased police presence at popular Mass. shopping spots
If people still believe that the protesters have anything to do with the looting and rioting, I don't know what to tell you. This was a coordinated attack by scumbags looking to rob places. Nothing to do with George Floyd. Never was.
Can’t make this shit up
Less than 24 hours after tear gassing a church to stage a photo op and promising military support to break up protests - today’s schedule has him signing an executive order to advance religious freedom and Pompeo meeting with survivors of Tiananmen Square.
American carnage is right
He gets his wall
Every day he does more and more unbelievable things. What an absolute fool.
And this is what the National Guard is for, not the protestors. They DO need to crack down hard on that nonsense.
Spot on. These looters don't care about George Floyd, Black Lives Matter and fixing the disparities in society. They only care about using the movement as a cover to rob and destroy places. They want to inflict more pain on society rather than try to heal it.
I saw the Natick stuff on twitter. I know they also locked down the apartments that are next to the mall as well.
The power and reach social media has is mind blowing
I still can't comprehend that he had innocent protesters gassed just so he could do what he did.
He essentially ordered law enforcement to commit what is the equivalent of a war crime
id laugh if it wasn’t so sad and pathetic
This type of thing is still seen in other countries and we shun them... here? Ridiculous.
Yeah, irony to the highest possible level. Yikes.
question is, who paid for it?
And that is one of the ways in which he is going to be re-elected, unfortunately.
There are legitimate protesters out there with a legitimate cause, but their efforts are being overwhelmed by the excessive vandalism and looting taking place. Citizens want security in their lives – they want to feel safe. In moments such as these, they look to those who will keep them safe. Rightly or wrongly, they'll see Trump and the Republicans as the law-and-order party. What's occurring on the streets now in dozens of urban centers is playing into Trump's hands.
Of course it is, which is why he continues to pour gas on the fire. The worse it gets, the better it is for his chances of staying in power.
I only expect him to fan the flames further after Biden's speech this morning and a poll that has him down in every demographic.
Probably the most relevant song/video in US history given current events, unfortunately
