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

Goerge Will: Trump May Have Caused the El Paso Shooting

Veteran conservative columnist George Will agrees with Democrats who say President Trump might have prompted the El Paso shooter to kill 22 people and wound many others.

From his latest column in the Washington Post:

It is not implausible to believe that Trump’s years of sulfurous rhetoric — never mind his Monday-morning reading, seemingly for the first time, of words the teleprompter told him to recite — can provoke behaviors from susceptible individuals, such as the alleged El Paso shooter. If so, those who marked ballots for Trump — we have had quite enough exculpatory sociology about the material deprivations and status anxieties of the white working class — should have second or perhaps first thoughts. His Republican groupies, meanwhile, are complicit.

Enough about the working class! Now back to tea in my library.

Is Trump worse than socialism, or the approximation of it? Was Jeb Bush going to stop the evisceration of the culture — through unsustainable illegal immigration, globalization, and political correctness — that the Founding Founders whom Will supposedly reveres gave us?

Forget Jeb, would Will want to be complicit in the potential destruction of this country through the election of Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders?

These are the hard questions conservatives so disgusted with Trump that they’d rather have Elizabeth Warren never seem to grapple with.

  1. It’s obviously inconceivable to Mr. Will that anyone other than the great unwashed masses would support the President. What would be say to a college educated woman like me? To think I once admired him.

  2. And George Will may have caused the Dayton Ohio shooting.

    George Will helped drain Conservative inc into irrelevancy, a quizling atheist snob. I hope he enjoys the waning years of his byline, as he will not be remembered past retirement when he’s no longer telling lies to get attention.

  3. George Will also writes about baseball on occasion.

    Which inspired someone snarky to quip that they hadn’t seen such an epic ragequit of a sometime baseball man, since Bud Abbott said, “Oh! That’s our shortstop!”

  4. What a snob. Why didn’t these never trumpers try to come up with a decent candidate to challenge trump effectively. Because right now there is no one. I’ve said before I don’t agree with all of trump’s tweets and comments but he is the ONLY person trying to right lots of wrongs and trying to protect Americans of all backgrounds.

  5. Then what caused Sandy Hook? What caused Columbine? and and and and and and and and and and and and and? George Will is a douche.

    Deranged people do deranged things.. .either prevent the events before they happen or stop them ASAP when they start. Done. Solved.

    George Will, Obama, Spartacus, Pocahontas, Sleep-to-the-top Harris and others are worthless turds.

    Have a wonderful day!

    • Oh no! It is the gun, you know.
      /s
      It doesn’t matter how much gun control is instigated. The criminals will ALWAYS get a gun & do harm. The left never acknowledges this FACT.
      That’s where the left fails. They fail & blame & curse & lie, refusing to open their eyes to reality.

  6. George Will and all the cowardly, never-stand-up to Obama, never-call-out anti-American value Democrats, DC-elite-establishment ‘Republicans’…are the cause & election of Pres Trump.
