A tepid Trump response

“It’s a shame. I think it’s a very sad thing when a thing like that happens.” This was President Trump’s feeble response to the recent arrest of domestic terrorist Christopher Hasson. A self-proclaimed white nationalist who had accumulated 15 weapons and a hit list of over 20 prominent Democrats and media critics of Trump.

I wonder if Trump’s response would have been as tepid and blasé if the intended victims were Sean Hannity, Fox News and Republican leaders. But the fact Trump has his priorities lined up perversely shouldn’t surprise us by now.
