Although seven American sailors were confirmed dead Sunday morning, their Commander-in-Chief President Trump was obsessing over imaginary “witch hunts” against himself.
Early Sunday morning Japan time, seven missing sailors from the USS Fitzgerald were found dead following the collision with a merchant vessel.
President Trump chose to focus Sunday morning on the imaginary “witch hunt” against him:
The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt. Many new jobs, high business enthusiasm,..

Yes, 24 hours ago, at 10AM Saturday – before the deaths were confirmed – someone running President Trump’s account shared an appropriate tweet:
Thoughts and prayers with the sailors of USS Fitzgerald and their families. Thank you to our Japanese allies for their assistance. https://t.co/d1l5ctjNyB

But this morning, at the same time as the CNN article was published, Trump was feeling sorry for himself.
If everyone could try to stay focused on what the President SHOULD be doing, and not allow the stunningly poor behavior of President Trump erode their expectations of this President, it would become clear that he is not able to conduct himself appropriately at even the most obvious times.
Seven sailors are found dead and you are the Commander-in-Chief, you tweet about them, you offer their family condolences, you praise their service; you don’t tweet about how horribly you are being treated.
