After returning to the White House from his trip to the Foxconn factory in Wisconsin, reporters quickly ran up and asked President Trump if he had any words of condolence or any remarks on the horrifying massacre of five people by a mass shooter at the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Maryland.
He ignored them and walked away, even making a quick joke to one of the security guards before running away like a coward.
"Can you please talk to us about the dead reporters in Annapolis?"
“Do you have any words of condolence for the families, Mr. President?”
"Why are you walking away?"

His refusal to acknowledge the reporters after five of their peers were just gunned down in what may be a politically motivated attack is beyond despicable. He has spent the past two years demonizing and attacking the media, calling them “enemies of the state” and fostering an atmosphere of intense hostility that made violence against journalists almost inevitable.
Just four days ago he was at a rally berating the “fake news media” – and now, of course, he doesn’t even have the shame to look them in the face. He knows what he’s done – but being a narcissistic sociopath, there’s no way he’s going to take responsibility for it.
