I won't bother selecting another Superman comic Bizzaro World image to add to this blog depicting Trump's mind. You can chose your own.
Before I read the above article I clicked on another HUFFPOST story, Trump Targets Transgender Health Care In NRA Speech, because how he could shoehorn this topic into a speech to a bunch of gun nuts piqued buy curiosity. I was curious to learn whether he was urging open hunting season for anyone promoting transgender health care. Color me shocked to discover that this topic actually made a modicum of sense even for someone with a warped bigoted mindset.
“Upon my inauguration, I will direct the FDA to convene an independent outside panel to investigate whether transgender hormone treatments and ideology increase the risk of extreme depression, aggression and even violence,” Trump said during a speech at the National Rifle Association’s conference in Indianapolis on Friday.
“I think most of us already know the answer,” Trump added.
Trump and his Republican allies have baselessly claimed that gender identity was a factor that led a shooter to kill three kids and three adults at a school in Nashville, Tennessee.
Then scrolling down the web page I saw this:
Donald Trump claimed Friday that thefts at retail stores in major cities include “hundreds” of people running out carrying pilfered refrigerators.
The former president, in a speech Friday to the National Rifle Association convention in Indianapolis, said that “gangs of hundreds” of young people in major cities “attack” department stores.
“And they run in by the hundreds, and they’re running out carrying refrigerators and carrying air conditioners and big stuff ― big, little, everything,” Trump said.
“Fur coats, non-fur coats, everything they’re carrying. They empty out the stores.”
