Donald Trump's response to the fire in his eponymous New York building displays all the gracelessness and lack of human warmth we so detest in him. No mention of sympathy for those injured, one of whom later died. The condescending parentheses around "and women", as if female firefighters counted for less than men. Instead the braggart seizes on a tragedy as yet another excuse to blow his own tarnished trumpet. A masterpiece of bad taste!
