Trump Slammed After Blaming Synagogue For Not Having An Armed Guard To Defend It

Four armed officers were shot during the violent incident.

Published October 27th

It’s almost as if Donald Trump has created an art of saying something you think is the dumbest thing ever – then – he’s able to top that within days or even hours.

  1. Remember when 45 alluded to the mail bomber as “bomb stuff” and accused the media for highlighting it to slow enthusiasm for Republican voters? Well, now he’s blaming a Pittsburgh Synagogue for not having armed security guards that he claims would’ve stopped a mass shooting that just took place.

    "If there was an armed guard inside the temple, they would have been able to stop him," he told reporters right outside of Air Force One.

  2. Authorities say 11 people were killed, and at least six people are injured, including four police officers after a gunman stormed the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh and opened fire. The FBI has taken over the investigation and has deemed the horrific incident a hate crime.

    When asked if the shooting should spark a revisit to assessing gun laws, the president replied that the shooting "has little to do with it" and that an armed guard could have been able to stop the gunman "immediately." A suspect is in custody.

    Social media, of course, went off and particularly pointed out that four police officers were shot. All four were armed.
