As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Democratic Senator Blames Trump and His Supporters for New Zealand Massacre

Well, you knew this was coming.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Sen. Richard Blumenthal on Friday blamed rhetoric from President Trump and his supporters for the mass shooting in New Zealand that took the lives of 49 people.

“Words do have consequences, and we know that at the very pinnacle of power in our own country, people are talking about ‘good people on both sides,’” Blumenthal, D-Conn., said on CNN.

Blumenthal indicated he was talking about Trump’s comment after a violent rally in Virginia that included the white supremacist group Unite the Right, after which Trump said “both sides” shared the blame. But he also said he was talking about Trump’s supporters.

“I think it’s more than the president, it’s the people who enable him, and who fail to stand up to him and speak out,” he said.

“I think that the public discourse from the president on down is a factor in some of these actions,” Blumenthal concluded.

  1. Next thing you know, some Democrat freshman will say that Trump should be impeached for what happened in New Zealand, because he liked the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

    • It’s coming, count on it. We know the fanatic lefties are already preparing the talking points. Probably waiting for one of those idiotic Sunday morning “news” shows to go public.

      • Well, if they do, I hope they have Auntie Annie on speed dial. Because they’ll be tying themselves into some serious knots, with all the pretzel logic they’ll need.

        Dude called himself an eco-fascist, and he was in thrall to Ehrlich and Marx as much as anyone right of center.

        This story likely won’t survive the weekend, and by this time next week, it’ll be down the memory hole. They can’t talk about this bastard’s ideas, such as they are, without having to explain away his environmentalism and his love affair with Chinese Communism.

        He’ll be an unperson before the Stanley Cup Playoffs get underway.

  2. Ah yes! Blumenthal. Another self loathing Muslim loving, American hating Jew. Bad enough the Dems are the enemies of our country, but the fact that Jews keep voting for idiots like this gut just don’t add up. disgusting

  3. “Da Nang Dick” continues to perpetuate the fake news about Trump & Charlottesville. If the shooter in NZ thought Trump is a white supremacist, he wouldn’t learn that from Fox News or Breitbart. Guess where he would learn that – CNN, MSNBC, and the three other LSM outlets.

  4. Sheesh.

    You people think wrapping Christmas presents for “Toys for Tots” was some kind of easy duty for a Marine?

    Do the words “paper cut” mean anything to you @ssholes?

    Get a life.

  5. You gotta give the left credit.

    They’ve managed to blame people like me in the United States because an Australian shot up a mosque in New Zealand.

    It’s quite the trick.
