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.

LESS DREADING, MORE DOING

This is the rubber-meets-road moment: the early days in our first fundraising drive since we took a big swing and merged with CIR to bring fearless investigative reporting to the internet, radio, video, and everywhere else that people need an antidote to lies and propaganda.

Donations have started slow, and we hope that explaining, level-headedly, why your support really is everything for our reporting will make a difference. Learn more in “Less Dreading, More Doing,” or in this 2:28 video about our merger (that literally just won an award), and please pitch in if you can right now.
