Brzezinski Claims Trump Is ‘Inciting Hatred’ That Led to El Paso Shooting on Purpose: ‘This Is What He Wants’

“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski claimed President Donald Trumpseems to want” white supremacist violence in the United States.

On Saturday, a gunman opened fire and killed 22 people in a Walmart in El Paso, Texas. Shortly after the horrific shooting, police found evidence that the shooter was a white supremacist who sought out to kill Hispanic Americans. The gunman will likely face both capital murder charges from the state of Texas, as well as federal hate crime charges.

While the nation mourned the 31 victims of the shootings in Texas and Ohio, Brzezinski focused in on the racially motivated attack in El Paso. During her Tuesday morning show, she asked her co-host, Joe Scarborough, if he believed Trump wanted the shooting to happen.

Watch Brzezinski’s comments:

“You have to ask the question Joe, and I’ll ask you: Isn’t it okay to deduce that, at this point, this is what he wants? He is inciting hatred, inciting violence, inciting racism. If he doesn’t unequivocally call it off and say, this is wrong, and we stand together against this, and we are doing this, this and this to help fight hate crimes. I mean, this is a president who seems to want these things to happen. How else can this be explained? If he doesn’t call it off?”

Although Brzezinski claimed that President Trump didn’t call off white supremacy, he has made several speeches against the hateful ideology.

Following the shootings, Trump called on Americans to “condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy,” adding, “These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hate has no place in America. Hatred warps the mind, ravages the heart, and devours the soul.”

Despite Trump’s condemnation of the shootings and white supremacy, Scarborough still claimed that ignored white supremacy to further his political career.

“Will he change? Only if it suits his own political purposes to change. And that’s what Americans must show him. That this is a dead-end road that he’s on. White supremacy is a dead-end road. It will lead, not only to terrible things for other people but for what matters to Donald Trump the most: It will lead to terrible things for him politically.”

While Scarborough and Brzezinski claimed that Trump was all words and no action when it comes to gun violence, counselor to president Kellyanne Conway noted in an interview on “Fox & Friends” that Trump has made several efforts to thwart gun violence, including a ban on bump stocks.

Poor, confused banstan. Believe it or not, there is more than one reason why a shooter would go on a rampage. Not all of them are political, although quite a few rampages in the US are obviously political. The El Paso shooter made it quite clear with his manifesto just how political his was and whose words triggered his actions. The Dayton shooter did no such thing, even though he had strong views about many topics. Scratch deep enough and you are likely to find that he leaned one way or another politically, but that in no way suggests that… Read more »

Hey contusion, what about the liberal shooter in Dayton? Since he was a Trump hater, who triggered him? Fauxcahontas?

Don’t be confused about how King Donald The Loser is manipulating our domestic terrorists. The technique that he uses is called ”stochastic terrorism”. It’s a subtle way of triggering action in people he doesn’t know personally through his suggestions. He says a few words implanting the idea that someone (his political opponents) or a group (brown or black skinned people) are their enemy, and the King sits back and waits for some nutjob, such as Cesar Sayoc, to go ballistic and do something stupid and dangerous. Michael Cohen described the King doing this in business, in his testimony, too. The… Read more »

There are many reasons the MSM is held in contempt. Here they completely ignore their own culpability/responsibility.

So….if you want to blame Trump for fomenting this violence, let’s ask WHO exactly makes his every word known? Who repeats him and also gives mass-killers publicity (because copycats are a REAL thing)?

Mika and her ilk are enablers in many ways they will NEVER admit. She and Joe want to be “influencers” but take zero responsibility for the results.

THIS is precisely why there is so much hate and distrust in this Nation. MSM mouthpieces like this are only adding to the hate by such unsubstantiated BS as she spews constantly from her anti-POTUS soapbox. She and that which she calls her “husband” are leaders and prime examples of #fakenews.
