Because the tragic shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, the media has actually driven the story that President Donald Trump is to blame for the deaths of 31 people since his racist remarks, and the majority of outlets have featured survivors of the tragedies who are important of the president.
Breitbart News reported on National Public Radio’s (NPR) effort to discover Trump haters in El Paso and instead the tax-payer moneyed media outlet came face to face with Tito Anchondo, who lost his sibling and sister-in-law. Anchondo stated his brother and his whole family are Republicans and support Trump.
Now theWashington Posthas actually profiled Anchondo in a story headlined, “Why one household grieving El Paso victims picked to meet Trump” and embedded a video on top of the story featuring people who refused to meet Trump in Texas.
” Tito Anchondo wishes people would stop politicizing his household’s disaster,” thePostreported prior to it proceeded with a political spin:
Melania Trump posted a photo Thursday on Twitter showing the meeting with Tito Anchondo, his sister, Deborah Ontiveros, and the baby. In the photo, Melania holds the baby, while Trump smiles and gives a thumbs-up– an image that drew anger on social media. Some slammed the president’s facial expression and thumbs-up at such a mournful minute and questioned why the infant was photographed with a leader whom some blame for inciting the violence that eliminated his moms and dads.
But Anchondo strongly declines that view of the shootings and said he did not want the picture to be seen through a political lens.

And Anchondo applauded Trump after he met the president and very first woman at University Medical Center of El Paso with his sister, Deborah Ontiveros, and his sibling’s now-orphaned baby child, Paul.
” He was simply there as a human being, consoling us and providing his acknowledgements,” Anchondo informed thePost
The president “wasn’t there to be pushing any kind of political program,” Anchondo stated, explaining “a personal conversation between human beings.”
” Yes, definitely,” Anchondo stated when thePostasked him if he felt consoled by his conversation with Trump.
Then thePostmarked down Anchondo’s conference with Trump by reporting that he was welcomed just “after it ended up being clear that none of the hospitalized shooting victims would meet him.”
ThePostconcluded its report by utilizing a confidential White House source who said assistants were fretted about Trump’s thumbs-up pictures and “have motivated him to strike a more compassionate tone.”
