WATCH: Joy Behar Blames Synagogue Shooting on Donald Trump
A shooter is responsible for a shooting. Ultimately he is the one who pulls the trigger, thus he is the one to blame. People who are not to be blamed for a shooting is everyone else who had nothing to do with a shooting. Yet Joy Behar of The View blamed President Trump for the Synagogue shooting in San Diego. Time-stamped to Joy:
I'm sorry, but to say Donald Trump is anti-Jewish, in any way, is stretching the limits of reality to points even Nancy Pelosi's face cannot tolerate. Donald Trump is one of the most pro-Jewish, pro-Israel president's ever. The San Diego Synagogue shooter also hated Trump. So blaming Donald Trump for this shooter, the shooter in New Zealand (who also didn't like Trump so much) and even Charlottesville, is like blaming Joy Behar's insanity on the insistence she decks herself in red.
As for his comments on Charlottesville, Trump has clarified those again and again and again. The left doesn't care to hear Donald Trump's comments after the initial soundbite which, I'll grant you, wasn't good. But to equate a bunch of beta male dweebs who raided a Home Depot for tiki torches, with two shooters who took out faithful Jews, that's not going to fly here. Then to say those shooters were motivated by Trump's secret code words and handshakes... Remind me, which side of the political spectrum is all about those conspiracy theories?
Food for thought: if we're going to slide down this slippery slope and blame the actions of the violent on the words of the influential, what about Joy blaming white supremacy and now shootings on a sitting president? If a shooter says he was motivated to violence because of Joy's words, or the sentiment behind them... what then?
Also, the racist, anti-Semitic Louis Farrakhan. Which side supports him?
