Donna Brazile Says 'Trump Has Nothing To Do' With Mass Shootings

Donna Brazile is now over at Fox News and it appears she has been indoctrinated by the propaganda network. She is dismissing Trump’s racist rhetoric by saying he has “nothing” to do with the mass shootings.

While on Fox News Radio this weekend, Brazile said, “This conversation about race and racism, domestic terrorism, white supremacy, white nationalism, it is that I am profoundly saddened as an American. The reason why is to point fingers and the plate is so-called blame game.”

She continued, “President Trump had nothing to do with the maniac, and I’m being gracious here, the maniac who shot up a Walmart store. He had nothing to do with the person who shot up you know the bar in Dayton. This is unbecoming of a country. The President of United States you know should not be blamed for you know these individual killers. But what we have to hold each other responsible for is our tone. We all have to set a tone.”

Sounds like Brazile does’t understand the impact of Trump’s tone. In addition, people in El Paso, Texas disagree with her.

Michelle Grady was at the Walmart in El Paso, Texas when she was shot three times by a 21-year-old white supremacist who wrote a manifesto that included one-liners that could have come directly from Trump. She has survived but her Pastor Michael Grady, who has been in ministry for 50 years, spoke on SiriusXM’s Urban View’s “The Clay Cane Show.”

When asked for his thoughts on Trump coming to El Paso, he said, “I really believe that he should not come. What’s he going to say? I watched the newscast the other day. He read off of a teleprompter. He had no passion about what he was saying. Someone else wrote the speech. So what is he going to do? Come shake some hands, do some photo opportunities and go right back to Washington, D.C. with the same kind of rhetoric, the same kind of venomous hatred that comes out of his mouth? I would hope that he would not come to this city because part of the reason that this city is in the situation it is, is that because words matter. He has spoken devastating words about the border situation, placing people in cages and building a wall.”

11. Ignore everything you see and hear, even from the shooter

Because if some shooter and Trump weren't frat brothers in college, Trump has nothing to do with the shooter's actions. Is that how it works now, Donna? Because even a blind man can see the bright line connection.

14. Don't tell me Trump's words don't matter

By Jennifer Rubin
Opinion writer
August 14 at 11:51 AM

President Trump’s apologists express outrage when his affirmation of white supremacist themes (e.g. “an invasion”) is linked to mass shootings by white supremacists. (Try to imagine them taking that position if President Barack Obama had echoed radical Islamist themes.) Trump’s defenders and that gaggle of conservatives who attack Trump critics go so far as to claim it is Trump’s critics who provoke racism because they accuse Trumpers of racism, or something like that. Frankly, it’s basically: “Blah, blah, blah ... Don’t accuse Trump of racism when he demonizes black and brown people. ... Blah, blah, blah.”

Evidence doesn’t matter that much to the legions of Trump cultists, but the rest of us should note just how intimately Trump’s words are linked to violence ...

The Post reported: “Like the suspect accused of killing 11 Jewish synagogue-goers in Pittsburgh last October, the suspected mosque shooter in New Zealand allegedly drew inspiration from the rise of white nationalism in America. The 74-page manifesto posted online hailed Trump as a symbol ‘of renewed white identity and common purpose’” ...

... this is a new phenomenon. “ABC News could not find a single criminal case filed in federal or state court where an act of violence or threat was made in the name of President Barack Obama or President George W. Bush” ...

27. THIS Donna Brazile ...

WIKIPEDIA-- Don;t forget..

Donna Lease Brazile[1] (/brəˈzɪl/; born December 15, 1959)[2] is an American political strategist, campaign manager, political analyst, author, and Fox News contributor. [3] She was formerly a CNN contributor until her resignation in October 2016. She is a member of the Democratic Party, briefly serving as the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee in spring 2011, and again from July 2016 to February 2017.

She was the first African American woman to direct a major presidential campaign, acting as campaign manager for Al Gore in 2000. She has also worked on several presidential campaigns for Democratic candidates, including Jesse Jackson and Walter Mondale–Geraldine Ferraro in 1984, and for Dick Gephardt in the 1988 Democratic primary.

Talk about an amoral gun for hire...

30. I quit listening to her about 2015.

It seemed like she was starting to lose her mind back then.

I don't know if her thinking was changing that long ago but it seemed her thought processes were changing even then.

Can't show any examples because that was just how it seemed to me.

Seems all you need to get a job at Faux is that your mind starts playing hockey with a warped puck.

33. All that purple hair dye.

It went to her brain.

I never did get how she acquired so many plum jobs: she wasn’t particularly smart or charismatic, and certainly there are countless women better qualified in our party.
