Donald Trump Sends Prayers to Wrong Victims of Mass Shooting

Wut? Didn’t this happen more than a week ago?

Is Trump thinking of Rancho Tehama, California? Does he really pay that little attention to mass shootings?

BTW, here’s his tweet from the actual day of the shooting in Sutherland Springs:

He really puts a lot of thought into these tweets of compassion, doesn’t he?

UPDATE: It took a while, but the tweet has finally been deleted. However, nothing has taken its place, since that would be a tacit admission of error on Trump’s part. Apparently the residents of Rancho Tehama will have to make do without prayers from the president.
