Cory Booker Says Donald Trump "Is Responsible" For The El Paso Shooting
Buzz Feed News ^ | August 4, 2019 | Kadia Goba

Booker and Beto O'Rourke both cited the president's rhetoric and stoking of racial division in the wake of the Texas shooting.

Sen. Cory Booker placed blame on President Donald Trump and his racist rhetoric for a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, that left at least 20 people dead.

The shooting is being investigated as an act of domestic terror and a hate crime after officials said that they believed, but have not confirmed, a manifesto filled with anti-immigrant and white supremacist language was posted online and written by the gunman.

“I think, at the end of the day, especially because this was a white supremacist manifesto that I want to say with more moral clarity that Donald Trump is responsible for this. He is responsible because he is stoking fears and hatred and bigotry,” Booker said on CNN’s State of the Union.

Cory is so insane he needs to be picked up with a nice big net and provided mental treatment (in a locked facility to protect the public from him)

Ergo, 0bama is responsible for all mass shootings and killings of LEOs while he was President then, too. I particularly remember how that ‘pastor’ funneled marchers directly toward the man in the parking garage, which helped cause 5 LEOs to be killed. That ‘pastor’, IIRC, is moslem.

Hey! I can make stuff up too. I can even make it sound perfectly believable. Watch.

Corked Booger has a pea brain and big mouth. If it wasn’t for his butt plug his pea brain would have fallen out long ago.

See how easy that is nose picker?

By trying to connect Trump and his voters to yet another horrible and senseless act from a sick and demented person, the Dems are basically doing their own ads that Republican attack ones could never top.

If....and I emphasize IF, Corny Booger ever did give the impression that he might possess a little gravitas; an assinine accusation such as the headline just disintegrated it and blew it away. The perp who did the killing was a registered RAT. By no stretch of even Booger’s fevered reasoning could this LOGICALLY be blamed on our great POTUS.

Does this sound like a Trump supporter?

“The American lifestyle affords our citizens an incredible quality of life. However, our lifestyle is destroying the environment of our country. The decimation of the environment is creating a massive burden for future generations.

“Corporations are heading the destruction of our environment by shamelessly overharvesting resources. This has been a problem for decades. For example, this phenomenon is brilliantly portrayed in the decades old classic “The Lorax”.

“Water sheds around the country, especially in agricultural areas, are being depleted. Fresh water is being polluted from farming and oil drilling operations. Consumer culture is creating thousands of tons of unnecessary plastic waste and electronic waste, and recycling to help slow this down is almost non-existent. Urban sprawl creates inefficient cities which unnecessarily destroys millions of acres of land. We even use god knows how many trees worth of paper towels just wipe water off our hands.

“Everything I have seen and heard in my short life has led me to believe that the average American isn’t willing to change their lifestyle, even if the changes only cause a slight inconvenience. The government is unwilling to tackle these issues beyond empty promises since they are owned by corporation.”
