Yesterday, a gunman choosing targets at random, opened fire in a rural Northern California town, killing four and injures many others, including children. The Rancho Tehama tragedy happened over a week after the tragic church shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas. However, if you were to ask the President of the United States, they’re all one in the same.
In a classic case of “always proofread before hitting send”, it appears that Donald Trump, President of the United States, copy and pasted his Sutherland Springs tweet to offer condolences to the victims of the most recent shooting in California, only he forgot to change the location, effectively sending out the same Tweet twice.
While it may seem like a minor mental error that we all experience, WE aren’t the President of the nation with repeated mass shootings. Trump’s tweet is but a microcosm of both our President and our nation’s gun laws: idiotic, ignorant, out-of-touch and half-assed.
Update: the Tweet was deleted but screenshots will live forever.
At this point, if our lawmakers and Presidents are going to help us, it’s time to start hoping god will.
Our thoughts and prayers go to all the victims and families of all our nation’s tragic mass shootings.
