President Trump will be visiting with victims of both the Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas mass shootings on Wednesday and paying his respects to the people killed. But the liberal media don’t seem annoyed that he was going something so thoughtful.

During the Tuesday edition of ABC’s World News Tonight, anchor David Muir seemed to pooh-pooh the idea of the President’s visit.

“President Trump will visit Dayton and El Paso tomorrow to meet with first responders, law enforcement, and some of the victims of the terrible shootings. But in those communities, there is unease from some who believe the words of comfort fight the rhetoric that came before,” Muir announced at the top of the segment.

Investigative correspondent Kyra Phillips echoed Muir as she began her report. Saying, “On the eve of the President's visit to El Paso, many people in that community uneasy about his return.” She followed that up by huffing about the Trump’s previous visit to El Paso, which included a campaign rally where he urged for greater border security.
