Las Vegas - Trump bait?

It is a mistake for Donald Trump to go to Las Vegas. At least one news report today cited ISIS as claiming responsibility for the killings there.

Of course, ISIS will leap to the front of the line with a claim of responsibility, whether or not it had anything to do with it.

But could the killings in Las Vegas be a lure that brings Trump into a situation on short notice that could make him a target for a follow-up shooting? The Secret Service usually has weeks to plan a trip by the POTUS, and other killers could take advantage of rushed planning in this case.

Trump should stay in Washington and avoid Puerto Rico, too.

And get rid of the damned Twitter account.

 I object also to the lowering of the United States Flag for any reason. Trump has ordered the lowering of the Flag until sunset Friday.

The United States Flag should fly high every day. No act of terrorism, foreign or domestic, should result in lowering of the U.S. Flag. The Flag Code should be re-written also to remove the days of mourning clause.

Possible but a bit of a stretch. I agree with the lowering of the flag.
