Donald Trump takes to Twitter to blame the media for the two mass shootings this weekend.

Before anybody gets too excited that Trump is talking background checks we should remind ourselves that he was all in for background checks over a year ago right up until he met with the NRA and they set him straight. 

Trump has a history of making promises he has no intention of keeping. 

And then there is this.

The media? Really?

The media’s only culpability is in that they broadcast the hateful things that Trump says which then inspires mass shooters to murder innocent people. 

I actually think that Beto O’Rourke summed it up best. 

I think I like the unplugged Beto the most. 

That’s how he should talk during every debate and he might actually win the nomination. 

Update: Trump also blamed vidoe games for the shootings. 

To be fair Trump did condemn white supremacists for the violence, but he did not accept any of the blame himself and continued to try and shift the blame everywhere but where it belongs.

Update 2: Here is Trump’s full press conference blaming everything he can think of besides our gun culture. 

“Mental illness and hatred pulls the trigger, not the gun.”

WTF does that even mean?

    Trump is now trying to sound compassionate while he addresses the two shootings this weekend.

    Completely unconvincing in this role.

      Oh my God, he is trying to blame the internet!

      Unbelievable!

    Oh my. Lots of sniffing again. Wonder why? Hmmmm

      He is real bad reading this scripted bull they give him to perform. Like he needs help, say his Adderall fix.

    Blah Blah Blah.
    Lotta damned gall mentioning hate when it’s the backbone of his rallies.

    He said Toledo instead of Dayton where the massacre took place. My god. He read off a TelePrompTer. Who typed that into the ‘speech?’ Or did Trump just improvise that part? What a slap in the face to the victims and their families.

    Never forget the Bowling Green Massacre and the Toledo Massacre. Yes, Ohio, you voted for a #WhiteNationalistTerrorism Presidunce who can’t even read off a TelePrompTer.

    The “Dayton Strong” tee shirts are selling well. Now printing up “Toledo Strong shirts.

    He blamed video games too?

    Um. Those people weren’t killed by Pac-Man.

    What a shit show.

    Twenty-four hours they had to come up with THAT??

    If lardass supported strong background checks, neither he nor his cabinet would be in office.

    Oh good lord!

    GOP lawmaker blames mass shootings on Obama and ‘drag queen advocates’ in crazed Facebook rant

    “The breakdown of the traditional American family (thank you, transgender, homosexual marriage, and drag queen advocates); fatherlessness, a subject no one discusses or believes is relevant; the ignoring of violent video games; the relaxing of laws against criminals (open borders); the acceptance of recreational marijuana; failed school policies (hello, parents who defend misbehaving students): disrespect to law enforcement (thank you, Obama),” she wrote in her post.

    So disturbing.

    Dayton gunman Connor Betts drove his sister and her male companion to party strip for a night out – before donning body armor and a mask and opening fire on them with an assault rifle and 250 rounds of ammo, killing her and eight others

    Really? He didn’t get the memo that it was video games. Some schmuck lawmaker in Ohio is blaming the gay and trans.

    Meanwhile the FBI feels hamstringed if they investigate white nationalist hate groups because Trump will accuse them of targeting his base.

      Why not blame it on Bugs Bunny/Road Runner cartoons of my youth?

      • Anonymous August 5, 2019 at 12:19 pm

        Heckle and Jeckle.

        Or Twinkies.

        Fluoridation in the water.

        Nope. It’s liberal Democrats, gay marriage, recreational marijuana and of course the fake news lying media.

        Ohio state rep Candice Keller needs to be soundly defeated by a huge margin. She is a fascist nazi cow.

    This speech reminds me of a similar written speech written to clean up the mess he made about Charlottesville. Then he blew up ranting at the news conference with Elaine Cho that was supposed to be about transportation. The snorting is a tell he is lying.

    • Anonymous August 5, 2019 at 12:29 pm

      No, his mouth moving is a tell he is lying. The snorting is a tell he is emotionally unstable.

      • Anon August 5, 2019 at 8:24 pm

        Definiently mouth moving is lying tell. Snort is from his medication. Adderall crush.

    Why is he yakking about immigration reform when the MURDERS were carried out by WHITE SUPREMACISTS….

    He blamed everyone except the tooth fairy and the real culprit..himself. blah blah blah,

    Such an ignorant lard ass, can’t even get the name of the city correct..shows exactly how much he cares, which is NADA.

    Well he is right on one thing, mental illness did play a part because you really have to be mentally ill to be a trump supporter.

    Here is a posting from tone-deaf Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, showing tombstones of his opponents, Merrick Garland, etc. – WTF! This country has a cancer not only in the White House but also in the Republican Senate:
