    So here we have the president and his wife making a visit to some of the Florida school shooting victims.
    Ok, no problem, no one needs to be patting him on the back, it's expected and it's the right thing to do.

    But instead of simply giving a nod and moving on, the haters of the twittersphere are up in arms about the president smiling in the photos, claiming he has no heart, he's evil, etc.

    And so what do we get ? An article written NOT about his visit, but about how people are 'o-u-t-r-a-g-e-d' that he is smiling.

    We are at each others throats, and it's only a matter of time before this toxic mix spills into the streets.

    People have strong reactions to the president's smiling visit to Parkland victims

    To tell you the truth, in that picture, Trump looks like he's celebrating something.

    He definitely doesn't look like he's very concerned. And, did you notice that there are no students in the pictures, just the first responders?

    And maybe that's why he's giving the thumbs up. He could be celebrating the people who worked to save the students.

    The optics on that picture look bad. 17 people died in that school shooting.

    Well then maybe you should get out there on other social media platforms and help the haters flood the internet with their toxins.

    Put up to it by Leftist agitators no doubt.
