Trump Just Mixed Up Mass Shootings, Sends Condolences To Victims Of Previous Shooting


On Tuesday, the U.S. suffered its 317th mass shooting so far this year, this time targeting an elementary school full of children in Rancho Tehama, California. During the 45-minute gun rampage, the shooter killed four people and injured 10 others. The staff locked the doors of the school so the gunman started shooting through the windows. The police killed the gunman.

A full day later, early this morning, Trump tweeted his condolences to the city which endured the previous wrong mass shooting, the one that happened nine days earlier in Sutherland Springs, Texas, when a gunman opened fire inside of a church, killing more than two dozen people.

“May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas,” Trump tweeted. “The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.”

UPDATE: Hours later, Trump deleted it so we’re replacing his tweet with the screen capture I took.






That tweet looks eerily similar to the one Trump launched nine days ago.

“May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas,” he tweeted at the time. “The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.”

Twitter users were not amused.

A month before the shooting at the Sutherland Springs church, a gunman killed 58 people and injured more than 500 in Las Vegas, which marked the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Trump and his Republican colleagues have done nothing about it.
