Washington Post Is Upset That Trump Didn’t Freak Out Over Pensacola Shooting

Now, had President Trump freaked out over the shooting in Pensacola, the same Washington Post Editorial Board would have also Blamed him for that. It’s really a no win situation

Trump’s reaction to Pensacola was insensitive and insufficient

PRESIDENT TRUMP’S reaction to the murderous rampage in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday by an officer of the Royal Air Force of Saudi Arabia was insensitive and grossly insufficient. Three American servicemen lost their lives and eight were wounded by a Saudi wielding a 9mm Glock 45 pistol in a killing rampage that the FBI says is being investigated as terrorism. What does the president say? He finds it “shocking” and conveys the condolences of “very, very devastated” King Salman of Saudi Arabia and his son, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and adds that the kingdom will “help out the families very greatly.”

Not a word from Mr. Trump about the threat of terrorism, or a shred of curiosity about motives and whether the Saudi officer was radicalized and by whom, or a thought about what Saudi Arabia could do to help investigate the shooter, or perhaps a lament that a pilot, a guest of the United States, would carry out such a horrific assault on his hosts, or even a worry about where the 21-year-old officer got the weapon. Mr. Trump quickly pivoted to say there were a lot of countries participating in the aviator training program. He often performs this pivot, a telltale dodge. “There are a lot of killers,” he said once when asked about a leader who dispatches assassins abroad. “I think there is blame on both sides,” he said after Charlottesville.

Mr. Trump has an inexplicable blind spot for Saudi Arabia. He has no trouble insulting in the vilest way people from other Muslim countries. He is hostile generally to people from “shithole” countries. After a terrorist attack in London, he said on Twitter, “These animals are crazy and must be dealt with through toughness and strength!” But when a Saudi carries out an attack on a U.S. military base, Mr. Trump becomes a spokesman and apologist for the king.

So, President Trump decided to actually wait for all the facts before speaking out, and is criticized for it. I don’t remember the WPEB freaking out at Mr. Obama after a real terrorist attack by a Muslim extremist, Nidal Hasan, at Fort Hood, which Obama called “workplace violence” rather than terrorism.

Apparently, the WPEB missed all the reports that this might not be Islamist terrorism, but, someone who utterly lost their shit

(WKRG) According to a report obtained by the New York Times, NAS Pensacola gunman Mohammed Alshamrani was “infuriated” after one of his instructors gave him a derogatory nickname.

The complaint, quoted in a communication circulated among people connected to the flight training, said that the instructor referred to Alshamrani as “Porn Stash” — spelled that way in the report — in front of about 10 other aviation students, embarrassing and angering him, according to the New York Times.

According to the New York Times, the incident happened in April, and it appears to have been upsetting enough that two American students in the class helped him file his complaint.

It could still be terrorism based on Islamist principles, or, it could be someone who was just unhinged. No matter what Trump does, the WPEB and other unhinged Trump haters will find a way to hate on Trump.

    Trump is supposed to be a racist, but he’s being tolerant of those rag-headed, sheep-screwing camel jockeys.

    Trump is supposed to be anti-Islam, but he’s acting like Islam is the Religion Of Peace.

    Trump is supposed to be a warmonger, but nobody’s dead (that we know of).

    Trump is supposed to be a blowhard, but he’s given a measured response.

    I thought this is what Fake News wanted him to do.

    Teach why isn’t surrender monkey concerned that is in direct negotiations with those terrorists/Taliban
    Should USA negotiate with terrorists ?
    Trump is planning on pulling out another 10000 troops whe he surrenders to Taliban

    • That would be a good trick since there are only 8,400 American troops in Afghanistan today.

        Trump should do whatever he believes is in the best interest of America. If that means negotiating with terrorists so be it. We negotiate with fukin’ communists don’t we? So what’s the difference? The commies have murdered more people in the last 100 years than the terrorists have and the Democrats welcome them into their party.

    • formwiz says:

      Yeah, where are all those Kurd massacres that were going to happen when he pulled 10,000 troops (that weren’t there) out of Syria?
