1/ A photographic look at the Trump visit to University Medical Center in #ElPaso. He visited there after the 7th worst #massshooting in US history. Targeting #Latinos, the attack killed at least 22 and injured 26. Pictures from Dayton included.
2/ Trump is vilified by many in El Paso for his border war, and his venom and prejudice appears to have helped inspire a white nationalist to target Latinos and commit mass murder. He planned to visit hospitalized survivors, but none would meet with him. So, what to do?
3/ What Trump is accomplished at is flipping the script. In a remarkable cache of 40 pictures on its Flickr feed, the @WhiteHouse bombarded the media and social media with exclusive images of his #ElPaso visit after excluding the press from covering it.

Almost ALL of those killed in #ElPasoShooting were #Latinos. And yet I see no mention of this in headlines or in chyrons. The largest minority in this county was targeted. Why are the headlines about Trump? elpasotimes.com/story/news/201…
There is a serious problem here. The focus is almost exclusively on the president. Latinos are just props in some larger narrative. Its horrific.
When the stories are written and the headlines and the news briefs overlook (I’m being generous here) who was targeted , you have to ask yourself why. I seriously hope every news show and Sunday show and opinion page allows voices from our community to be heard.
