Trump’s Flubbed Tweet About Kobe Bryant Goes Horribly Wrong


Donald Trump does not listen. His whole world revolves in a short orbit between him and his TV sets. Sort of like Uranus.

As usual, the president half-listened to the news, but his attention span cut off halfway through the tragic story about the great basketball player Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, who were killed in a helicopter crash.

Some people gradually realize that POTUS has never cared about anyone but Donald J. Trump. Even First Daughter Ivanka Trump has been less than a daughter than Trump’s sperm grown tall.

Trump tweeted out the wrong information about the great basketball player Kobe Bryant. He said three were killed, not four. At the same time, the commander-in-chief ignored the crisis in his own military. There were no words of consolation for Bryant’s family, friends, or fans in his tweet:

‘Reports are that basketball great Kobe Bryant and three others have been killed in a helicopter crash in California. That is

terrible news!’

In case, the president ever got around to wondering about how Byrant felt about him, this was it. Of course given his history, this walking 400 pounds of instant gratification never thought about it. Bryant tweeted in September 2017 that POTUS’ mere name inspired “dissension and hatred:”

A #POTUS whose name alone creates division and anger. Whose words inspire dissension and hatred can’t possibly “Make America Great Again”‘

The last victim in the crash was identified as baseball coach John Altobelli:

My longtime friend John Altobelli, baseball coach @occ_baseball, killed in the copter crash along with Kobe Bryant. Love you Alto.’

Trump should have been paying attention to what was happening to the American embassy in Baghdad. Rockets were raining down near  the U.S. embassy in Iraq as POTUS tweeted away:

#BREAKING Five rockets hit near US embassy in Iraq capital: security source’

In an update, the news about the rockets was dire. The military news site tweeted again, saying that three of the five rocket were “a direct hit” on the Baghdad embassy:

#BREAKING Of five rockets fired, three made a direct hit on the US embassy in Baghdad, according to a security source’
