Another stranger than fiction tale from the Ochre One.
President Trump Tweets About The Wrong Mass Shooting


President Donald Trump tweeted about the wrong mass shooting late Tuesday after a gunman launched a gun rampage in California and killed at least four people before trying to enter an elementary school.

On Tuesday evening, Trump tweeted: “May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.”

Sutherland Springs is a village in Texas where ten days earlier a gunman had killed 26 people at a church. He had tweeted a similar message after the November 5 attack.

“May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan,” he wrote at the time.

Social media users accused him of copying and pasting the message and using it as a template after mass shootings, but it remains unclear what was behind the president’s social media mistake. The tweet remains online and Trump is yet to correct or clarify the mistake.

Critics took to social media to criticize the president for mixing up his mass shootings. British presenter Piers Morgan wrote on Twitter: “At least get your mass shootings right, Mr President. This was last week. The new one is in California.”

One user tweeted: “This shooting took place ten days ago. Ten.”

Another wrote: “Today the president of the United States couldn’t remember and didn’t even bother to check where the country’s most recent mass shooting took place.”

Other social media users said that the president’s failure to remember the name of the mass shooting was a sign that he could not keep up with the amount of incidents, adding to the argument for greater gun reform.
