While meeting with shooting survivors, Trump holds note reminding him to say, ‘I hear you’

An image taken by an AP photographer is making the rounds on the Internet, and it’s rubbing a lot of people the wrong way.

During a White House “listening session” today with Parkland shooting survivors, a photo captured President Trump holding a paper with a series of notes jotted down. Some of the notes are clearly visible, and one in particular is getting a lot of attention. “I hear you,” the President’s note read.

The fact the Trump needed a reminder to say something that showed a modest amount of empathy wasn’t lost on the Twittersphere.
