On Tuesday morning, President Trump tweeted about a man in the U.S. illegally (previously deported twice) who has been charged in the death of Indianapolis Colts player Edwin Jackson and Uber driver Jeffrey Monroe:
So disgraceful that a person illegally in our country killed @Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson. This is just one of many such preventable tragedies. We must get the Dems to get tough on the Border, and with illegal immigration, FAST!

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod tried to prepare the liberal fainting couch:
Would @POTUS have tweeted his condolences to the family of NFL player Edwin Jackson but for the opportunity to exploit his tragic death in the ongoing battle over immigration?
Not a chance.

Does that dude remember who he used to work for? Fortunately others do:

How many administration officials would Obama have sent to Michael Brown's funeral were he not able to exploit his death? https://t.co/RruAEb5a7K

President Obama created a non-existent son who he said would resemble Trayvon Martin. No exploitation going on there however, right Dave? https://t.co/CLRBxYGEbH

Would Obama have sent 3 members of this staff to represent him at Michael Brown's funeral but for the opportunity to exploit his tragic death in the ongoing battle over race?
Not a Chance. https://t.co/wjr38n1SFx

Self-awareness doesn’t seem to be popular among former Obama staffers.
