Bonjour to my readers. This blog comes to you from my place in France three days after seventeen innocent people were murdered and I have just read a quote from Donald Trump that has the hair on the back of my neck standing up. I am seething.
Normally I would not pay attention to anything the crass Mr Trump says but this time he has put his foot in it and I am furious. Seventeen people have lost their lives at the hands of extremists with automatic weapons and he says that if the victims had been armed, the outcome may well have been different. Interesting way of looking at things don’t you think?
So let me get my head around this. If those 20 beautiful children aged five and six and the six adults at Sandy Hook had been armed they would have survived? If the thousands of people in the United States that are killed every year by guns were armed then things would be a lot better and a lot more lives would be saved? Recently a twenty six year old mother was shot to death in the US by her two year old child. Now the mother was armed and yet she died by a gunshot from her gun that was in her bag. Oh yes Mr Trump I am sure you can put your spin on all these cases and more but dead is dead.
Could someone please explain to me how a country that has more guns per head of population than any other in the world has the highest murder rate in the Western World? Is it not possible Donald Trump that your way of looking at things, and I might add many others in your country, does not work?
Like I said I would not usually lower myself to comment on something that was said by Donald Trump but France has just had a huge tragedy and you Sir are using it to push the agenda of the NRA and policies like theirs in your country. That goes to show the world what many already know about you and that is that there is a complete lack of class when it comes to what comes out of your mouth at times. Oh yes we do believe in free speech and you have your right to say what you feel but perhaps your timing was off, but then again, when we are dealing with an ego as big as yours how could we ever expect you to consider the feelings of anyone who has just suffered a terrible loss? Many of us are not impressed with your crass behavior so as much as you may think it is an attractive thing to have your very pregnant wife photographed standing half naked at the bottom of the steps of your old 727 plane we just think it is gosh.
Mind you I was reading a quote recently where you were singing the praises of Bill Cosby and saying what a great man he was. Do not get me started on that comment.
So Mr Trump when it comes to Europe and what happens here and in other parts of the world perhaps you should just keep your big mouth shut and stick to your loud in your face way of doing and seeing things in your country and leave us in Europe to do things our way.
Note….To my many thousands of readers in the United States please let me assure you that I have many many wonderful friends there and there is lots that I love about your country. I am sorry but guns and your policy on them is not one. I know there are many Americans who agree with me but this post got me started by a tackless comment made by Donald Trump which came at a very bad time and was uncalled for.
How good does this sound? Donald Trump, You’re fired!
