President Trump And White House Blast ‘Lying’ Ohio Democrats, Post Photos Of ‘Rock Star’ Reception From Hospital Staff During Dayton Trip

(Gateway Pundit) – President Trump and the the White House blasted Ohio Democrats for lying about President Trump’s visit to Dayton, Ohio Wednesday, posting photos by senior administration official Dan Scavino Jr. showing President Trump being given a “rock star” reception by medical staff at Miami Valley Hospital where he visited survivors of last weekend’s deadly mass shooting in Dayton. First Lady Melania Trump accompanied the President. The First Couple traveled to El Paso, Texas after Dayton to pay their respects to the victims of the other deadly mass shooting last weekend.

“Just left Dayton, Ohio, where I met with the Victims & families, Law Enforcement, Medical Staff & First Responders. It was a warm & wonderful visit. Tremendous enthusiasm & even Love. Then I saw failed Presidential Candidate (0%) Sherrod Brown & Mayor Whaley totally………misrepresenting what took place inside of the hospital. Their news conference after I left for El Paso was a fraud. It bore no resemblance to what took place with those incredible people that I was so lucky to meet and spend time with. They were all amazing!”

Four photos posted by Scavino show exuberant staffers surrounding and warmly putting their hands on Trump’s shoulders as they posed for pictures.

Scavino posted the photos in response to a press conference by Ohio Democrats U.S. Sherrod Brown and Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley, who crticized Trump in a press conference after the hospital visit.

“Very SAD to see Ohio Senator Brown, & Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley – LYING & completely mischaracterizing what took place w/ the President’s visit to Miami Valley Hospital today. They are disgraceful politicians, doing nothing but politicizing a mass shooting, at every turn they can….The President was treated like a Rock Star inside the hospital, which was all caught on video. They all loved seeing their great President!”

“President @realDonaldTrump with the incredible medical staff at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio today. Some extremely powerful moments throughout the entire visit, with so much enthusiasm and love, contrary to what the Trump Hating Dems would ever share or say.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham followed, saying, “President @realDonaldTrump graciously asked Sen Brown & Mayor Whaley to join as he and the First Lady visited victims, medical staff & first responders. It is genuinely sad to see them immediately hold such a dishonest press conference in the name of partisan politics.”

Grisham earlier reported on the visit, “Happening Now: @POTUS @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS Melania are meeting with patients at Miami Valley Hospital here in Dayton. They’ve been stopping between rooms to thank the hardworking medical staff. Very powerful moments for all!”

“While at the hospital, POTUS @realDonaldTrump says, “You had God watching. I want you to know we’re with you all the way.” @POTUS & @FLOTUS visiting w victims and families now.”

The comments by Brown and Whaley were in stark contrast to Ohio’s Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman, who wrote, “I’m grateful for @realdonaldtrump & @FLOTUS’s visit to #Dayton today to show their support for #Ohio after the tragic shootings this weekend. #Ohio is hurting, but our communities will continue to lift each other up as we heal.”
