Trump today: "Prior to departing Wisconsin, I was briefed on the shooting at Capital Gazette in Annapolis, Maryland. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Thank you to all of the First Responders who are currently on the scene."
Trump speaking of the press three days ago: “The enemy, the enemy of the people I call ’em.”
Here's one of the lovely rally attendees and her cheering section.
Here’s some video of a woman berating @Acosta. This went on for several minutes as many in the crowd cheered her on. As someone who’s covered my share of Trump rallies, it feels like 2016 all over again. pic.twitter.com/j0SF2nFDvG— Meg Kinnard (@MegKinnardAP) June 25, 2018
And the Capital Gazette gunman has been identified. This is him in 2015.
A few days ago, former Brietbart alt-right darling, Milos Yiannopoulos, texted a journalist: "I can’t wait for the vigilante squads to start gunning journalists down on sight.” Today he says it was just a troll.
And then there was that time NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch called journalists "the rat bastards of the Earth" and said "I'm happy to frankly just see 'em curb-stomped... let's be real about it...these people are just the worst possible thing that could happen to the American political system."
But I guess I'm being uncivil by quoting Trump and Trump supporters and Trump supporters who commit mass murder.
