Mulvaney Insists Trump’s Rhetoric Can’t Be Blamed For El Paso Shooting

White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney insisted on Sunday that President Donald Trump’s racist rhetoric doesn’t play a role in kind of white nationalist violence that may have led the El Paso shooter to open fire at a Walmart and kill 20 people.

It’s my hope that, if Mulvaney manages to dodge indictments altogether, he starves to death on the breadline in the post-Trump era. He’s f&cking toxic: Miller-esque, but less visibly repugnant.

Why? is there something in article ii? sitting presidents can’t be blamed for inciting violence?

Wanna bet they blame Nancy Pelosi when they hear that Dayton, OH shooter was a registered Democrat.

Mulvaney is so persuasive that I almost half-considered thinking about believing him for a negative microsecond . . . . but no, just no.

Sure, mick, whatever you say. You’d be saying the thing if donnie himself had pulled the trigger. Nothing can be The Manly Leader’s fault.

And Sarah Palin’s “2nd Amendment solutions” rhetoric can’t be blamed for the attempted assasination of Rep. Gabby Giffords that killed several bystanders.

Foolish kid. Going to El Paso, when if he had just driven up to the panhandle, would have an ironclad defense that the President made that legal.
