Trump Calls Game Meeting

Business Insider has word that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced today that video game executives are coming to the White House to meet with the president next week. According to the report this was in response to a question about the likelihood of passing gun control legislation, so this is a pretty direct deflection. In an odd twist, Ars Technica reports President Trump apparently does not restrict his 11 year-old son's access to violent media, in spite of concerns he's expressed about its influence. In an even odder twist, apparently the video game executives first heard about this along with everyone else, as the Washington Post's Tony Romm tweets that the ESA says nobody has yet been invited to this meeting:

The video game trade group in D.C., called ESA, has this statement: “ESA and our member companies have not received an invitation to meet with President Trump."

Can we ban country music? I'd vote for that!

Welcome back to the 90s.
Imagine in the 70s politicians would still think about banning Rock n Roll because of "bad influence".

If your going games you need to go movies and tv and some music to. Tons of insensitive and hateful content. If that were ever to be reformed, wow talk about a different world in 25 years. Now you'll need votes from the people and congress and for years in succession to pull this stunt off. I don't think he has it in him.
Books. Dont forget books. These things are the devil for Trump and his supporters. They should have people bring their books and burn them in piles to show how they support the effort of their beloved president. Reading is a left-wing thing, it should be banned.

The Murder Club aka the nra was seen bringing trunks full of Spanish doubloons into the white house. Drumpf tweeted that the meeting was a success. [wink]

There's a fool-proof way to tell if something a conservative/right-wing/Republican said is true or not. If they call it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

That's it! I'm starting the NGA - National Games Association. We'll be petitioning for an Constitutional Amendment!

Trump knows his base..I will give him that. The "That blasted Rock & Roll is Satan's work!" type of crap always manages to get just enough attention to be an effective distraction.

Yesterday he threatened to take all the guns.

Now he wants to take all the games.

I guess we'll all be playing Hello Kitty Island Adventure after he's through.

He's not interested in talking with the executives, he wants to talk to the lobbyists.

time to cough up some of that lootbox cash they're rolling in.

this is an unfortunate perfect storm; a bunch of gun industry shills in congress flailing about for distractions, and a fucking moron in the oval office. i admittedly don't really consume mainstream media of any sort so i don't know, but hopefully this narrative isn't gaining steam.

Tell him to shove his meeting up where the sun don't shine. One day he's talking about taking guns from people without due process, the next he's trying to blame videogames, the next he's trying to start a trade war which will raise the cost of most goods in the USA by 10-30%+. The man needs to be removed from office before he destroys our economy. It's obvious he's suffering from dementia, along with a host of other disorders.

Now with Putin bragging that he has the best nuclear missiles, who knows what this elderly deranged buffoon will do.
