Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) urged President Donald Trump to drop his idea to arm teachers in the US. Inslee confronted Trump at a meeting between governors and the president on Monday, arguing that teachers and police don't actually want what Trump is asking for. Trump in the past week has called to arm a certain percentage of teachers -- and paying them "a little bit of a bonus" to do so -- to protect students from mass shootings. "Speaking as a grandfather, speaking as a governor of the state of Washington, I have listened to the people who would be affected by that," Inslee said. "I have listened to the biology teachers, and they don't want to do that at any percentage. I have listened to the first-grade teachers, who don't want to be pistol-packing first-grade teachers. I have listened to law enforcement, who have said they don't want to have to train teachers as law enforcement agencies, which takes about six months."

When you have to be reminded to LISTEN and look empathetic then you obviously don't know how to do either.

Jay, when you realize that Dotardambo doesn't give a ---- about anyone outside of the 1% you will understand him.

His tweeting is his most effect ad campaign directly solely at his mouth breathing supporters. They love his tweets. They don't know that it is all a carefully scripted act to get them to vote for him.
