It's all the same.

Could a violent crazy person be influenced to shoot up a school by a video game or movie? Yes, of course they could. But if the video game wasn't there, something else would trigger the crazy. Cause crazy does what crazy does.

Blaming Donald Trump, who's as legitimate a candidate as Deez Nuts and Limberbutt McCubbins, for these violent crazies being crazy is just plan wrong. Crazy will do what crazy does. If Trump didn't set them off, then some wack job on Fox would have. Or a website. Or a book. Or a random birdie on the street corner who looked at the guy funny.

Trump is a douche who's using those of lesser intelligence on a fucked up publicity stunt. Yes. True.

But I can't blame his words for the actions of two crazy people who he's never met.

How about...Dylann Roof.

It's high time people take responsibility for their own actions (imho) and stop trying to blame society or everything else under the sun for their own actions.

If i were to hypothetically run a red light and slam into another car, killing an innocent driver in the other vehicle, can my defense be something along the lines of, "i saw a person/car run a red light in a video game or a tv show/movie, so therefore i though it was okay to do so in real life?" No..of course not.

So then if ISIS says "you should kill Americans" and someone actually goes out and does that, it's not ISIS' fault, it's the individual terrorist's fault instead?

We're talking about the wrong thing with that story anyway. The real story should be Trump nonchalantly replying "How about the passion my fans have, huh?"

They were two Boston Red Sox fans that had just left a game drunk.

They pissed on a homeless guy and beat him up. Only after being arrested and taken to the station did they mention Trump. One guy was arrested for this one year ago. (no Trump excuse then)


This has always been a non-story, regarding Trump.
Whackadoos, have contorted themselves into believing whatever suits their motives.

And it is giving me a stressor.

Thank you. Why is this not more of a talking point?

and the context?

he got blind sided by a reporter

"hey Trump, two guys beat up a Mexican, got arrested, they mention you."

That's a shame > first reaction, acceptable,

those guys have some passion, ok, not good, could he be making fun of them?


but, because it was a blindside question, and not something that he had even 60 seconds to contemplate, of even know more than what bare facts the reporter put at him, I can't go off to the races on this one


his initial remarks about them being rapists, etc, no way would I break that down, that is all on him, he deserved all the criticism that got him.

The appropriate initial gut reaction should be at the very least something addressing the violence. "I don't condone violence." Or "While I would like to deport all the undocumented immigrants, no one should be attacking them."

I mean, come on.

Trump's response was basically ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ .

we may be splitting hairs here
my reaction would be more in line with, first condemning violence too

and I have only found his response to fit within the acceptable range, not at the best range at all.

this guy is either crazy or crazy like a fox

everybody is screaming CRAZY,
I am considering, like a fox

I was eating Ben & Jerry's with Bernie in Vermont. Then upon leaving I punted a little rat-dog named Baxter off a bridge on the Connecticut River in White River Junction. Upon my arrest I blamed Bernie.

When asked for comment, the interviewer ignored the dog punting incident and asked why Sanders didn't care about black people.
