Video of Donald Trump bragging about the size of his crowds while visiting victims of a murderous rampage in an El Paso Walmart by an anti-immigrant white nationalist that left 22 dead, was greeted with horror and disgust by commenters on Twitter.
In the video filmed at University Medical Center of El Paso, Trump was caught exchanging pleasantries with hospital staff with First Lady Melania Trump at his side before bringing up an El Paso rally in February where he claimed he attracted a larger crowd than O’Rourke who also had an event in the city.
Trump’s callousness and narcissism was immediately called out on Twitter as “disgraceful ” — among other things.
You can see a sampling below:
This is absolutely disgraceful! More so bc NONE of the hospitalized victims in EL Paso would meet w/Trump, so he had two discharged pts come back to the hospital for his grossly inappropriate campaign video paid for illegally by taxpayers. #TrumpHospitalFarce

My god he’s such an embarrassment. And that 40% of voters want to re-elect him is a gut punch.

This is why they don't let reporters in. They know he's a disaster.

so glad to hear some of the victims recovering from their wounds refused to see him … sure the admin won't include that info in their ridiculous promotion video they made of these visits …

Funny how he looks into the eyes of a white guy but when a brown woman tells him her entire family was killed elsewhere, he asks how are they.

This is disgusting. I can't unsee it. I need to be more careful when I click on any Trump video. Horrifying. https://t.co/L3WUJ21AaF
