|Donald Trump laments loss of midterm momentum after 11 people were killed|
On the campaign trail last night, Donald Trump complained that the recent pipe bomb scare and the deadly shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue slowed momentum for the Republicans which he described as “incredible.”
From The Washington Post:
President Trump complained, once again, on Thursday that the recent mail bomb scare and Pittsburgh synagogue mass shooting had “stopped a tremendous momentum” for Republicans ahead of next week’s midterms.
Speaking to an energized crowd in an airplane hangar decorated with American flags in Columbia, Mo., the president took time at the end of his speech to brag about the “tremendous numbers” of Republicans going to vote. Yet, he said that the weeks leading up to the “very important election” haven’t exactly gone smoothly.
“Now, we did have two maniacs stop a momentum that was incredible, because for seven days nobody talked about the elections,” Trump said. “It stopped a tremendous momentum.”

After two former presidents were threatened with bombs and 11 people lost their lives, the Trumpster’s concern is Republican momentum?
It really says it all, doesn’t it?
The “two maniacs” also stopped 11 Americans from living, but as we’ve learned, Donald Trump only cares about Donald Trump.
This statement is revolting.

Those two maniacs were both deranged right wingers.
Just like him.
The bomber coated his van in pictures of trump. Long term fan.
The Pittsburgh killer was fixated on the same anti Semitic conspiracy theory and migrant caravan as the president.
he’s complaining about his own side
