MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell got a nice lecture from a congregant of the Pittsburgh synagogue where 11 people were massacred over the weekend. She was trying to make the point that it’s not just our “political leaders” with hateful rhetoric, but people at political rallies starting in 2016 (DING DING DING Trump!) have been cheering hate speech. Obviously she’s referring to Trump and the people at his rallies.
But the synagogue member hit back, lecturing Mitchell oh why it’s just not helpful to try and politicize a shooting like this.
He was very diplomatic in his approach. But I did love it when he pointed out to her that the nazi scumbag who did this didn’t even like Trump and that Trump should absolutely come to Pittsburgh, despite people trying to discourage him from coming.
And that’s the point. They are trying to blame Trump even though the guy didn’t even like Trump, by saying Trump has created a toxic political atmosphere or something. It’s ridiculous.
