On Wednesday president Trump sat down with survivors and family members affected by last week's school shooting in Parkland, Florida (which left 17 dead) to hear their pleas for stricter gun reform.The discussion around gun control is one of great gravity, not only for those affected by gun violence, but for any concerned citizens of America. Most people would know that significance of letting survivors speak their piece without a cue card.However, a photo from Trump's meeting showed the president holding a small note card full of cues.President Donald Trump holds notes during a White House listening session with students and parents affected by school shootings.

However, the prompts on his card include basic statements like "I hear you," a response most human beings with empathy wouldn't need to memorize.Twitter was quick to roast Trump's need for a script for basic human connection.5. "I hear you"— Lawrence Connolly (@LawrenceConnol2) February 21, 2018 You'd like to think that was a gimme that no one needed to write down, especially for a "listening session." Sheesh.— practically perfect in every way 🇺🇸 (@mimilahr) February 21, 2018 something you would have to keep reminding a psychopath— Lawrence Connolly (@LawrenceConnol2) February 21, 2018 It was so he didn't go on a tangent about how Huey Lewis and The News are a great band.— Deltron Zero in 2020 (@lloid) February 21, 2018 I hear you is one of the notes— SOLID SNAKE (@Sneakersnake12) February 21, 2018 Isn't that pathetic???— practically perfect in every way 🇺🇸 (@mimilahr) February 21, 2018 Lordy. If he only had a heart and wasn’t a sociopath he wouldn’t need empathy flash cards. If only we could get him to the Wonderful Wizard of Oz.— Propane Jane™ (@docrocktex26) February 21, 2018 https://twitter.com/SoloSportsComms/status/966447833955086336Come to think of it he also lacks courage so welp.— Propane Jane™ (@docrocktex26) February 21, 2018 https://twitter.com/SoloSportsComms/status/966449644875255808Some people had suggestions for additional notes for Trump.Number 12. “No touching”— TURN IN YOUR BALLOTS (@yeahokaynowwhat) February 21, 2018 That was #1— ChrisMort (@ChrisMort13) February 21, 2018 https://twitter.com/1p8774/status/966452810769358848#2 on the list:Donnie, you know it’s Fla and 16 is legal, but NO Donnie....

In general, writing down talking point and questions is completely normal for a president who is constantly interfacing with the public. However, the image of Trump clutching a note that says "I hear you" sums up way too much of what's wrong with the current administration to unpack in a single tweet.
