Dayton Mayor: Trump Is ‘A Bully’ | Talking Points Memo

Dayton, Ohio Mayor Nan Whaley has yet another bone to pick with President Donald Trump.

After Whaley and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) concluded their press conference Wednesday following Trump’s visit to Miami Valley Hospital to meet with victims of the mass shooting in Dayton, both the President and his social media director confusingly proceeded to take aim at the Ohio officials who said nice things about his visit.

Another example of Trump’s disconnect from reality. Does anyone know how Fox News reported the visit?

Whaley’s confusion is akin to the guy surprised to find his ankle in the neighbor dog’s jaw, a gnarly mutt that barked through the fence every day and was known to have cat bones strewn about its back yard.

A few reasons, take your pick:

  1. She’s a bright woman, ergo, gotta kick her just for the warm feeling of dominance
  2. She didn’t kiss his butt
  3. She said something he didn’t like before or after his visit
  4. He’s a clueless narcissist
  5. His dementia is showing because he’s remembering actual events entirely differently than they unfolded.

It’s because he’s a perpetually angry dementia patient. They often lash out at times when they can’t help it.

Donald J. Trump is an equal opportunity hateful, demented sociopath. That’s the explanation.

To Trump it doesn’t really matter what they actually said: an evil heart hears what the evil heart wants to hear.

The racist in chief knows how to hold a grudge. Both didn’t initially want to meet with him and that is what he remembered.

And he doesn’t like female Mayors who stand up for their citizenry. Just ask Carmen Cruz.

And you know what’s perfect about this typo becoming his latest nickname?

“Tt or TeeTee” is another slang term for urine…and you know where I’m going with this. It’s all down stream from here.
