President Donald Trump sparked some online anger when he gave a thumbs-up while posing for a photo with law enforcement officers who'd responded to Wednesday's deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Many people called out Trump over the gesture, which he reportedly made during a visit to the Broward County Sheriff's Office on Friday. Washington Post reporter Mark Berman noted how the president had also updated his personal Twitter account's banner with the image: weeters accused Trump of being "tone deaf" and lacking empathy and compassion.
At least he didn't enter the hall under a mission accomplished banner. Now isn't the time to celebrate the fruit of freedom.
