Trump Needs Empathy Notes

Cause He Can't Remember to Feel Sympathy

While Donnie was told by his advisers that he had to show that he cared about shootings and shooting victims, such a position is so alien to his personality that he needed crib notes to remember how to do it.

"Yep, right there at No. 5 is a talking point about telling those present that he was actually listening to them. After what appear to be four questions he planned to ask those assembled, No. 5 is an apparent reminder for Trump to tell people, “I hear you.”
Even No. 1 is basically a reminder that Trump should empathize. “What would you most want me to know about your experience?” the card reads. So two-fifths of this card is dedicated to making sure the president of the United States assured those assembled that he was interested in what they had to say and their vantage points."
