On Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders went off on a liberal reporter who suggested that President Trump is responsible for the tragic school shooting in Kentucky yesterday.
Seventeen people were injured and two were killed during the shooting at the Kentucky High School, and this morning Trump took to Twitter to give his condolences:
Earlier today, I spoke with @GovMattBevin of Kentucky regarding yesterday’s shooting at Marshall County High School. My thoughts and prayers are with Bailey Holt, Preston Cope, their families, and all of the wounded victims who are in recovery. We are with you!

However, NBC’s Peter Alexander was quick to blame Trump for not cracking down on gun control sooner. “What has the president done since October to prevent any of the shootings from taking place?”, he asked
“The president believes that all Americans deserve to be safe in their schools and in their communities,” and that “we’ve tried to crack down on crime throughout the country,” Sanders responded.
However, Sanders began getting a bit frustrated after Alexander kept pressing her, and then ultimately suggesting that Trump is to blame for the shooting.
“What is the president specifically doing to prevent shootings? Will the president come forward before the nation and tell people how he feels and use the bully pulpit,” he said before Sanders stepped in to crush him.
“The fact that you’re basically accusing the president of being complicit in a school shooting is outrageous. The president has been very clear in instructing the top law enforcement agency to crack down on crime to prevent these types of things.”
Isn’t it sad to see the liberal media stooping to these lows? There were tons of shootings when Obama was President and the media didn’t blame him….they blamed the GUN!
Why is it not the same with Trump? Oh yeah, because we’re witnessing the most despicable “double standard” in modern media history.
