Donald Trump’s response to the tragic events that unfolded last weekend on the campus of the University of Virginia, have been sad, to say the least. The fact that a commander-in-chief would take such a laissez faire approach to addressing events and underlying issues of such extreme importance, is truly a reflection of his lack of desire to hold the domestic terrorists responsible for what happened, accountable.
It makes sense when you think about it, though. The terrorists who caused last weekend’s horrific events are the same people who came out in droves to support Trump on the campaign trail, assault anti-Trump protesters, and ultimately claim that last weekend was about “fulfilling the promise of Donald Trump.”
And while the domestic terrorists, white supremacist, alt-right, and other factions who chose to propagate hate and be silent and do nothing but cause more trouble, those sickened by what has taken place and Trump’s lack of leadership in the midst of it, are coming out in droves to let Donald Trump and his friends know that their brand of hate and ignorance, won’t be tolerated. The latest American leader to step-up to take on Trump is Boston’s Mayor, Marty Walsh (D).
On Saturday, Walsh tweeted:
Today, Boston stood for peace and love, not bigotry and hate. We should work to bring people together, not apart. https://t.co/gZw6ggYYHG

People, even those who report that they’re “not a fan” of Walsh, sent responses of overwhelming support for Walsh’s leadership:
Looks as if even though Donald Trump keeps getting it wrong, cities like Boston are getting it right.
