  1. Donald is a genius. Look he cares more about the gun then the victim(meaning american gun control the weapon is more important than the victim. The school children dancing is to distract you about the chaos happening in the backround. The same way americans are fooled by the media and music that they don't see what is going on in america. The chor being killed is about the 9 that got shot in the church 2015. And the old cars is a contrast to those rappers flashing new cars and forget the real issue. And him running at the end is to showe how black slaves run to be free from their masters long time ago… genius

  2. Respect ✊🏾 to how he said this! Having the Father in thought etc can tell he has a big heart! SN: New outlets f’ing idiots have FACTS 1st before doing such a Headline on something so touchy 🙄
