The HERO KING Donald Trump is swooping in to save a white British baby who the Theresa May government’s Death Panel has ordered must be let die!
If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.

TALK ABOUT GOOD PUBLICITY!
President Trump on Monday offered to help a critically ill British child who has become a flashpoint in the United Kingdom debate over whether the government should have a say in individual matters pertaining to life and death.
Trump tweeted his support for Charlie Gard, a 10-month-old infant on life support due to complications from a mitochondrial disease. The controversy around Gard has engulfed the Vatican, which infuriated some on the right by not immediately siding entirely with the parents, who want to seek experimental medication in the U.S. or bring their child home to die.
“If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so,” Trump tweeted.
Gard’s case has created an international uproar and sparked debate over whether the government should be able to mandate “death with dignity” over a family’s wishes to seek out experimental medication for their sick child.
Gard was born with a rare genetic condition and cannot move or breathe on his own.
His parents want to bring him to the U.S. to seek experimental medication or take him home so they can spend their final hours together.
The Great Ormond Street Hospital where he is staying has argued the child would suffer harm because there is no prospect he will recover. The British Supreme Court is backing the hospital, opening the door for doctors there to withdraw life support for the child.
Gard’s parents will also not be allowed to take him home to die.
White House director of media affairs Helen Ferre said members of the administration had spoken to the Gard family in calls set up by the British government.
“The president is just trying to be helpful if at all possible,” Ferre said, adding that Trump had not spoken directly with the family and does not want to pressure them in any way.
Citing legal issues, the White House declined to say whether a U.S. hospital or doctor had become involved in the discussions to provide care for the child.
I’m actually not against letting deformed babies die – I don’t think anyone is really against that. Even if there are just humanitarian concerns, a life of misery and so on.
I don’t know much about mitochondrial disease but, I would assume, it’s a lifelong battle, as it is a genetic disease, and it is unlikely the child will live to be very old whatever the case.
Basically, if the person can live a normal life upon recovery, I am all for saving the baby. However, if not, I believe they should be let die. This definitely includes retards, who it is absolutely deranged to let live.
However, I care more about Trump getting international goodwill and Theresa looking like the psychopathic child-hater that she is than I do about high-level eugenics discussions.
Plus, Charlie looks normal:
I mean, he isn’t mutated.
Also, this thing of not allowing Charlie to die at home – what is this shit?
That doesn’t have anything to do with costs, or eugenics – that is just shoving your face in some family’s business for no reason other than to mess with them – the epitome of the nanny state.
I guess they’re saying the baby will suffer if he is allowed to die at home – well, guess what, you evil, spineless fucking demons – somethings in life are more than a measurement of pleasure vs pain.
If it is meaningful to the parents for Charlie to die at home, Charlie should be allowed to die at home. And I can certainly see how that would be meaningful to them.
What’s more, it might be good for Charlie too. No one wants to die in a hospital, and whatever is going on with his DNA, Charlie is a living human being with a living soul who deserves the right to die as a human being – outside of a sterile hospital.
