“I Hear You”; Donald Trump Used Elementary Crib Notes At Listening Session To Tell Shooting Survivors

US President Donald Trump needed self-intuitive crib notes to tell the Florida shooting survivors, “I hear you,” during a White House listening session on Wednesday.

In the wake of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that left 17 students and teachers dead, Trump hosted a listening session for survivors of school mass shootings while photographs show he clutched a poorly hidden crib note with hand-written talking points.

Some handwritten cues that could be seen on Trump’s card included: “What would you most want me to know about your experience?” read point number 1 and: “What can we do to help you feel safe?”

“I hear you,” read point number 5 on the note.

After listening to a series of stories and pleas from survivors, students, and parents of victims of past school shootings, Trump suggested arming teachers and school staff.

“If you had a teacher who was adept with the firearm, they could end the attack very quickly,” he said while apparently needed a little guidance to keep him on track and help him through what was.

The gunman, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, used to attend the school and killed 17 of his former classmates and teachers wielding a legally purchased AR-15 assault rifle.

The president has been accused of feigning compassion after photos of his note shared on social media.

Adam Parkhomenko, Hillary Clinton’s political adviser tweeted: “Trump brought Cliff notes to the gun violence listening session. Final note ‘I hear you’”.

“What kind of person needs notes to show empathy to children who were under heavy fire from a maniac? Kids who lost 17 people in the time it took the killer to aim his rapid fire AR-15”, another user wrote.

Michigan resident Demeralda wrote: “Also it’s sad someone else wrote it for him.” while Scott Brook wryly said: “Even a ‘stable genius’ needs reminders for such long and complex phrases.”

Later, Trump tweeted: “I will always remember the time I spent today with courageous students, teachers and families,” added: “So much love in the midst of so much pain. We must not let them down.”
