Trump claims “Insensitive To Talk About Gun Control After Just Eating”
President Trump responded to Congressional Democrats calling for new gun control regulations by claiming it was inappropriate to discuss such measures so soon after lunch.
Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut, where twenty schoolchildren were allegedly killed in 2012 by shooter Adam Lanza, has been beating the drum after each subsequent massacre, including the most recent attack in Las Vegas. In 2013, he told fellow politicians “Your ‘thoughts’ should be about steps to take to stop this carnage. Your ‘prayers’ should be for forgiveness if you do nothing — again.” Congressional Republicans have called out Murphy for abusing drums.
When asked by reporters when the right time was to discuss banning or even regulating devices such as “bump stocks,” which can make a semi-automatic rifle firing continuously like a machine gun, Trump replied “My schedule changes every day, so I never know in advance when I’ll be eating. Who knew mealtimes could be so complicated?”
