Did He, or Didn't He?

I was watching the televised visit, yesterday, with a group (other than the Trump 2020 guy, and his kids, I don't know how they were selected) of people, to discuss school violence, attended by Trump and De Vos.

Trump said something about how airline safety has improved, since pilots were given permission to carry guns. The Trump 2020 guy, cued it nicely for him. Trump them said "[b]It’s called concealed carry, where a teacher would have a concealed gun on them. They’d go for special training and they would be there and you would no longer have a gun-free zone[/b]"

Here's what he tweeted today:

[quote]I never said “give teachers guns” like was stated on Fake News @CNN & @NBC. [/quote]

Huh? he doesn't remember what he said yesterday? What's fake about the reporting? Regardless of how you qualify his statement.

But, to make things even worse, within the same (extended) tweet, he said:

[quote]History shows that a school shooting lasts, on average, 3 minutes. It takes police & first responders approximately 5 to 8 minutes to get to site of crime. Highly trained, gun adept, teachers/coaches would solve the problem instantly, before police arrive[/quote]

Does he think, prior to tweeting?
If he doesn't like something, its "fake" in his eyes, even if its what he said.

This bothers me far more than exactly [i]what [/i]he says at times, as well as the fact so many people appear to be completely unfazed by his intellectual inconsistencies and apparent lack of connection with objective facts.

Yes. They shrug off as "quirks" and the "successful businessman doing what he does best". It's one thing to be conman, as the CEO of a company, where you can declare bankruptcy (multiple times), but the country is NOT his company, and a country should not be run, like a CEO runs a company. Companies are NOT democracies. I had that drilled into my head, day 1 on the job.
[@479686,MistyCee] I agree. It really frustrates me that he can be on TV, Grab em by the Pussy or I was considering this Russia thing before firing Comey or any of the other things he said and then claimed it wasn't true.

Nope. He never thinks before tweeting. Did you ever think we'd have a president who contradicts himself in the same statement? He can't even carry a thought long enough to complete a tweet.

It's the one thing Trump is proficient at; talking out of both sides of his mouth.
Constantly contradicting himself. That's why anything positive he said can just be reversed immediately. Huckabee Sanders can come out tomorrow and say he didn't say it.

I suspect the guy who's kid got killed got paid. Everything he said was very convenient for Trump. He actually said his kid died and nothing was done but he trusts Trump will fix things. WTF

[@619287,Jwalker] Like I said in another post, I empathize, but all he said (and what his boys said), was all Trump propaganda. The guy showed up to the school shooting site, in a "Trump 2020" shirt (I saw the news coverage, the day the shootings took place).

It's a shame a grieving father, and siblings, were used for political purposes.

He's an idiot and has no idea how to handle this issue, obviously

or indeed, after tweeting, or during it

Does he think, period?
