President Trump gets America’s numerous mass shootings confused
President Trump is back on American soil and it didn’t take long for him to start screwing up on the Twitter machines.
His very first tweet on his return from his extended Asia trip was this head-scratcher.
The tweet, which was up for nearly 10 hours before being deleted on Wednesday morning, was confusing because the shooting in Sutherland Springs, Texas happened 11 days before, on Sunday, November 5, 2017 and Trump tweeted almost the exact same thing at the time.
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.

And then it dawned on everyone: Trump got the Texas church mass shooting confused with yet another mass shooting on American soil.
A gunman went on a terrifying shooting rampage in Rancho Tehama, California that spanned across multiple sites, including an elementary school, killing four people and wounding several others including students at the school.
Yet it seems Trump copied and pasted his previous tweet and forgot to change the name of the city before he hit “send.”
Donald’s template for a white male shooter, usually with history of domestic violence:
May God be with the people of <City, State>. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.

One can understand a bad tweet thanks to jet lag, but when you’re the president of the United States, you don’t get that excuse.
