Trump Tweets Out Support for Charlie Gard;
Media Refuses to Mention


The media, strangely, chose not to report on this tweet.

Though maybe that's not so strange-- many have entirely embargoed the name "Charlie Gard" from their coverage.


Meanwhile, Francis seems to be disputing his advisory council and now saying he supports Charlie Gard's parents' right to choose what "care" is given to their child.

“He prays for them, wishing that their desire to accompany and care for their own child to the end will be respected.”

Ed Morrissey notes that the word Crux (the magazine that was quoted from) translated as "care for" is better translated as "treat," as in "medically treat:"

Veteran Vatican reporter Francis X. Rocca translates it into a more explicit reference to “treat” the baby from the official Italian-language statement..


"Treat" might be the better translation -- wordreference.com lists the first definition of the word in question (curare) as "nurse," and then "take care of." Obviously you can see the word "cure" lurking around in there.

I wouldn't get too hopeful that Francis is having a general change of heart on his liberal instincts -- he just refused to renew the term of service of a conservative Cardinal.
