Dem Donna Brazile Says Trump Is Not Responsible for Shootings

Many leading Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden, and several other of the candidates vying for the 2020 nod, wasted little time in blaming President Trump’s “inflammatory” rhetoric for the recent spate of mass shootings.

However, the President has found an unlikely ally defending him against such claims —   former Democratic Party head Donna Brazile.

“President Trump had nothing to do with the maniac, and I’m being gracious here, the maniac who shot up a Wal-Mart store,” she said on Friday, August 9 in an interview with Guy Benson on his Fox News Radio show. “He had nothing to do with the person who shot up the bar in Dayton.”

“This is unbecoming of the country. The President of the United States should not be blamed for these individual killers.”

Brazile refused to follow the lead of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others who have called Trump a white supremacist in the wake of the attacks in Texas and in Ohio.

When Benson asked Brazile if she thought Trump was a White Supremacist, she replied, “This conversation about race and racism, domestic terrorism, white supremacy, white nationalism, it is that I am profoundly saddened as an American,” Brazile said. “To point fingers and to play this so-called blame game.”

Set a Tone for Our Youth

“These are children who are committing these murders, children. 19, 21, 22, children,” Brazile said. “We need to set a tone for our kids for our future for the values that we share as Americans. And you know, we like these gotcha questions. Hey, are you a racist or you … I don’t like that. I’m black, yes, I’m black. That’s who I am, but that’s not everything. You don’t know anything else about me other than the color of my skin. That’s not how we should do it. I’m speaking as Donna. I’m not speaking as a Democrat. I’m speaking to Donna. I want people to get to know me. Hey, you know how not everybody’s going to like me, but I guarantee you — if you eat my gumbo, you would.”

    Donna is right. Hate and raciest comments where not so common before Obama was in office. Kids today are only seeing hate and color through the MSM, people in congress, Hollywood and entertainers. Most , if not all, of this really started when D.T. ran for POTUS.. Maybe if parents returned to teaching their children respect, real history and not only lived it but demanded it all this would go away. Old saying ” Spare the rod lose the child”. I know of no one who punishes their children any more because the government has made it against the law. GET THE GOVERNMENT OUT OF OUR LIVES and get back to being parents. Punishment is not abusive, it is corrective. ” For every action there is an opposite and equal reaction”. Respect and commonsense reall need to be taught again

    Good for Donna. She sees it for what it is. Trump had nothing to do with these shootings. I’m from Georgia
    And admire her thinking.

  3. Thank God….Someone has some common sense! I so agree with Donna! Why is EVERYTHING blamed on Trump??? Why? HE didn’t tell kids to go out and kill other people. Where are the parents and their moral values? What about instilling a sense of right and wrong in a child? What gives them the right to take another life?
    What about blaming the child for his wrong deed? Or his parents for the child’s wrong deed? There’s alot of blame and pointing fingers right now. Leave Trump out of this! HE didn’t put the gun or assault rifle into the child’s hands. HE didn’t buy the bullets! HE didn’t drive him to his destination. AND HE didn’t tell him to pull the trigger!!! It starts within the family and at the family level! It’s not about blame anymore! It’s about solutions ! Before you go and blame somebody else, start with your own home. Communicate to your children(all ages) consequences. Reiterate or teach them better solutions. It starts at home first!!!
