As Trump's World Turns: Video Games And Mental Health






Image may contain: text

...Video games and mental health...

After three mass shootings in the span of three weeks (with two in a matter of 48 hours), I listened with contempt as progressive cable news hosts commented in anticipation of Trump's next day White House statements. Well, as is commonly the case Trump pulled up well shy of productive comments while wallowing in a low-level less than rational mumble-jumble. To be much more specific. Trump wallowed in the same irrational and third-grade level reading of a teleprompter.

Let's first expose the most irrational and inane utterances form the address.



If you dare to expose your gray matter to a president who has offered over 11,000 presidential lies in three years here is the full ten plus minutes address.  Speaking of the teleprompter do you recall what follows.



And 2011 criticism of then-President Obama for his use of the teleprompter. Linked here.

OK so much for GOP and Trump ridiculous hypocrisy regarding the teleprompter aside, let's show how VOX has addressed video games as an impetus to mass killings.

According to Vox's Ezra Klein.

It really doesn't take much to find the utter ridiculousness of the GOP's affinity for gun Lobby dark money.   You might be thinking"...well the Dems also take money from the NRA."  Yes, but relativity is a powerful consideration and visual representational of the imbalance of NRA money to the GOP is poignant, Open Secrets dot org offers a look at what has truly become money for driving US politicians.

In case you didn't check out the Open Secrets' link, consider this graphic.

Take a close look at 2016.


Did you really believe Trump was going to even mention rapid-fire military-style rifles?
