The Donald was riffing Thursday, and he was on fire. In an unscheduled meeting with reporters in the Oval Office, the Big Wet President announced that he was planning on working with Congress to ban vaping. The U.S. has bigger problems. Gun control. Mass shootings. But Trump sees vaping as more of a threat to “innocent children.”
To be fair, this might be an opportune call, since people keep getting sick from vaping. But as Vanity Fair points out, this is the same president who poses with the families of mass shooting victims and flashes a thumbs up sign. In true Trump fashion, his rant reached into bizarre corners.
Presented, without comment: “We have a problem in our country, it’s a new problem that nobody really thought about too much a few years ago. It’s called vaping. Especially vaping as it pertains to innocent children. They’re coming home and they’re saying ‘Mom, I want to vape!’ and the parents don’t know too much about it, nobody knows too much about it, but they do know it’s causing a lot of problems. And we’re gonna do something about it.”
