Donald Trump Blames Classmates for Nikolas Cruz Florida School Mass Shooting

Donald Trump blames classmates and neighbors for Nikolas Cruz killing 17 and wounding up to 50 in the Florida school mass shooting in Parkland on Wednesday afternoon. As usual, Trump blames the victims, no matter how insensitive and ridiculous.

Trump tweeted: “So many signs that the Florida shooter was mentally disturbed, even expelled from school for bad and erratic behavior. Neighbors and classmates knew he was a big problem. Must always report such instances to authorities, again and again!”

Um, this from the man whose only gun legislation since he was sworn into office was to make it easier for people with mental illness to purchase guns. It’s a sad commentary that, once again, Donald Trump leads from behind and continues to engage in victim-shaming instead of uniting the country.

By the way, Trump also signed a proclamation honoring the victims of the deadly shooting. That’s after he insulted the victims. There, there, that should fix it. Not.
