Dems Find New Way To Blame Trump For New Zealand Shooting
Trump administration officials on Sunday pushed back against the suggestion that President Trump’s rhetoric is partly to blame for the attack at two New Zealand mosques that left 50 people dead.
The main suspect in the shooting, which happened Friday, wrote in his manifesto that he supported Trump — something acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney and U.S. Ambassador to New Zealand Scott Brown downplayed Sunday.
But a range of Democrats — including Rep. Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) and Sens. Tim Kaine (Va.) and Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) — were critical of Trump and blamed the President for the shooting. Which is exactly what the shooter wanted so, good job there Dems.
Sen. Richard Blumenthal and a CNN anchor immediately blamed rhetoric from President Trump and his allies for the mass shooting in New Zealand that took the lives of 49 people.
According to The Washington Examiner CNN jumped right in. After briefly saying that “of course our prayers go out to the people of New Zealand, particularly the loved ones and survivors and victims,” Blumenthal, D-Conn., wasted no time in bringing up Trump. “But 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,’” he said, referencing Trump’s controversial Charlottesville comments.
CNN anchor Alyson Camerota responded: “You mean the president talking about it. I mean I know it’s hard to call this out. I’ve heard this from a guest this morning, they’re having a hard time calling this out for some reason.
The Blaze reported that only hours after a horrific mass murder occurred in New Zealand on Friday, Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal (Conn.) wasted little time in placing blame on President Donald Trump — joining a CNN anchor in saying the president’s rhetoric played a role in the killings.
During an interview on CNN’s “New Day,” host Alisyn Camerota began by asking the senator for his take on the tragedy and “a rise in right-wing extremist around the globe.” After extending his condolences to the victims and their families, Blumenthal pointed to Trump’s rhetoric as a prompt for the murders.
“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 said, referring to the president’s comments following a violent rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017.
