"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Wait, What?

(Trump in Florida giving the thumbs up with first responders. He's so proud of this it tops his Twitter feed.)

Trump went to the local hospital, allegedly to visit the victims of the shooting. The pool reports say that the time he exited his vehicle to the time he returned to it was a period of just 14 minutes.

Given that it was probably a 5 minute walk to ICU and 5 minutes back - and that he made doctors and nurses pose for a photo like the one above where he’s grinning like a jackass and giving the thumbs up and that probably took 2 minutes to arrange - we can reliably guess he spent no more than a period of TWO minutes total with all of the victims.

If he even visited them.

This was nothing, NOTHING but a cynical photo op to try and get ahead of the story and please his mouth-breathing supporters.

He had a "Studio 54" party at Mar-A-Lago to get to.

You can't make this stuff up.
