      @oldrrocr are you okay?

      @oldrrocr Neither shooter had anything to do with Trump – one was a Warren supporter while the other gated Republicans.

      Norman Peterson : Uneducated (I have a masters degree ) and stupid. What ? No racist, bigot, homophobic, Russian bot, or deplorable ? Bottom line. You’ve just got too many people, especially in the middle of the country, that will NOT go back to the democrat / liberal agenda.

    • Gary Campbell I agree 100%. So glad I left and even more thrilled the black community is waking up to the nonsense

    Please do NOT forget Gilroy, CA mass shooting just days before.

      @koffinkat666 What do you expect? Daily reports repeating the same story? What do you want them to tell you about Gilroy or another prior shooting, exactly?

    • Zissou Moonshot | August 6, 2019 at 9:44 AM | Reply

      @Joe Smith What false flag? Please, bring some kind of a well-sourced citation from a reliable source (not Infowars or Paul Watson, which is probably where you are getting these ideas). Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. We would love to see your proof that ANY shooting was a false flag event.

    • @Zissou Moonshot This shooting happened a day before the El paso one so yah…..Not sure why they didn’t include it

  5. Video games are not the problem is the people actions that cost these problems we make our own choices

    • Ali DW where did you get your psychology degree? Don’t downplay the very real correlation between media and real life violence. In contrast to what you say, studies are nearly unanimous that such a nexus exists. Don’t get your info from the media companies who are themselves to blame and, by the way, have the same lobbying power or greater than the NRA. here are some studies:

    • @Shmuel G Did you actually read any of those studies? Also, Correlation does not equal causation. not to mention that the most recent of those cited studies is 6 years old. THe majority of the studies have been debunked – and the most recent have not been cited correctly .

      @James Dunn no they werent

  6. He can barely breathe and his speech is slurred!

    • @Alexander The Great Yeah, but that is after a full day of speeches. Trump is winded at one prepared statement. He also leans on the podium alot. What’s wrong with him? He isn’t the same guy as before.

    • stormwatcher59 | August 6, 2019 at 12:31 PM | Reply

      That constant sniffing, trying to get more of the drug, is annoying!

  7. *this message was paid for by the NRA

    • What? He is advocating the violation of the 1st, 2nd, and 4th amendments. Nobody is taking the guns, these “red flag laws” are unconstitutional. The NRA should disavow Trump and find a new candidate that will preserve out rights. Trump is a traitor, but not in the way you leftists think he is.

    guys check out youtube …Moscow Mitch, The Musical (Theme Song)

  10. How do you not call out that he didn’t even know the correct city? Why was he talking about Toledo? The correct death toll? or his Twitter feed and rallies? What a joke!

    Iโ€™ve never played a video game and thought โ€œlet me just go shoot 20 peopleโ€

    • Lemonie Lala | August 6, 2019 at 4:15 AM | Reply

      Yeah, research has already debunked that connection but it’s an easy target. And gaming companies don’t donate as much to repubs as the nra does..

    • Jim The EDC Guy | August 6, 2019 at 10:30 AM | Reply

      Not to mention, they didn’t have video games throughout ancient history, and people still killed each other…

    • DanCin in the MoonLight | August 6, 2019 at 11:46 AM | Reply

      @Jim The EDC Guy Well this way the Republican politicians can keep saying it’s not the guns killing all these people. It used to be rock music and dungeons and dragons, then it was rap music. Now it’s video games and media next it’s going to be the man in the moon anything to keep getting those big fat checks coming from gun manufacturers and the NRA. Did you know that Trump was given 30 million dollars for his campaign by the NRA most of the politicians also accept bribes from the NRA. I call them bribes because that’s what they are, bribes.

  12. This country has hit a real low point. The evil GOP lawmakers will not even comment.

  13. I actually just laughed out loud at Trump’s lack of passion reading this, but trying his best to appear “presidential” and the crappy speech.

  14. Toussaint Louverture | August 6, 2019 at 4:13 AM | Reply

    He didn’t need that prompt when he spoke on the Central Park 5. Why doesn’t he speak so harshly against his supporters when they commit mass shootings? He doesn’t care about this. He’s been calling for it for 3 years.

  15. So Trump’s hatreds have warped his mind, ravaged his heart, and devoured his soul. Yeah, that sounds about right.

    • Carlos Herring | August 6, 2019 at 9:01 AM | Reply

      I was thinking the same thing. He talks about racism, bigotry and hate.. I think he was about to choke because he couldn’t say what he wanted to. He is two faced as well. No feeling what so ever

      Dam , dam, dam I believe you got it right, almost scary but precise .๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’ฅ

    Trump sounds like a child whoโ€™s forced to apologize.

  18. Noel O'Neill | August 6, 2019 at 7:03 AM | Reply

    After this speech he will probably say …how was I? HEARTLESS!

    Mr President: Iโ€™m not buying any of it.

      Yup, I’m not buying it either. Except I’ll NEVER consider Putin’s stupid lying clown stooge the President. He’s 99% FAKE, and all the rest is genuine BS!
