Trump took credit for planes not crashing. An astronaut’s response has Trump seeing stars

- Januari 02, 2018

While many people have lampooned President Trump’s hilarious attempt to claim personal responsibility for 2017’s lack of deaths by commercial airliner, few have the aviation credibility of former astronaut Captain Mark Kelly.

Kelly knew exactly how to respond when he saw this tweet that the President sent this morning:

Trump’s strictness on “Commercial Aviation,” as he unexpectedly capitalizes it, has no more to do with airline safety than his tweeting has to do with internet security. Does he mean that aviation safety is the only area where he won’t be trying to repeal all of the existing regulations in order to make the business owners more profitable at the expense of the general public’s benefit?

Kelly decided to give the credit to those who really deserve it and to let Trump know what he should actually be taking credit for.

Touche´, Captain Kelly. Even if you weren’t the husband of former Congresswoman and shooting victim Gabrielle Giffords and a noted gun-control advocate in your own right, your logic on presidential responsibility is so strong that your tweet would have gone viral anyway.

If only the President himself wasn’t so congenitally immune to logical thought and reason, your impeccable analogy might prove effective at teaching him to properly assign accountability properly.
