Here’s the Trump tweet about Dallas the media DON’T want you to see…

On any given news day, despite whatever else may be going on in the world, you can almost guarantee presumptive GOP frontrunner Donald Trump will be in the headlines, simply for his tweets alone. The media and Trump’s political rivals alike seem obsessed with making mountains out of every little tweet and using his words — or well-chosen snippets of them — to further their narrative of Trump as a racist, xenophobe, bigot, misogynist, etc.

So a day without Trump’s tweets in the headlines is something you tend to notice. And today was one of those days. So in case you missed it, here are some of the Donald’s tweets in the wake of last night’s massacre of Dallas police officers.

And here’s one you might think the media and Trump’s rivals (which actually are one and the same essentially) are just hoping you won’t see:

The tweet links to the presumptive GOP nominee’s Facebook page, where he posts this message:

Trump response

And, finally, this:

Yep, those just wouldn’t fit the narrative of Trump as a blustering bully, would they? No, this sounds like a man who cares deeply about America and Americans — all of it. Not to mention our rule of law, which has come under major attack both under and at the hands of the current administration. And, dare we say, he even sounds presidential?

And, hey, does anyone else find it highly ironic that last night’s unspeakable violence happened just hours after a string of racially-laced remarks suggesting frustration and anger at the police is indeed justified and even called for? We had the uber-liberal governor of Minnesota suggesting explicitly that the man killed in Wednesday’s shooting in his state would be alive if he had been white. And of course we had our president stoking the flames with his comments that the shootings are “symptomatic of a broader set of racial disparities that exist in our criminal justice system.” Meanwhile, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan posted a message of violence on social media just hours before the shooting — saying, among other things, “Don’t let this white man tell you violence is wrong.”

And yet, somehow, Donald Trump is the one continually called out for hateful rhetoric that people “warn” will incite violence?
