Leftist Attempt To Blame Trump For Capitol Gazette Shooting But They’re Proven False

The Left Tries To Blame Trump For Newspaper Shooting But It Blows Up In Their Face!

The man charged with murdering five people in the Capital Gazette newsroom in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday had previously been investigated over threatening comments toward staff members, Anne Arundel County Police Department Chief Tim Altomare said Friday.

The alleged gunman, Jarrod Ramos, 38, had a long history with the paper going back nearly ten years. His signs of mental illness reportedly going back well over a decade.

As far as we can tell it began on Twitter when liberal reporters started pointing fingers at Trump for ‘causing’ the shooting at the newspaper.  Before police were able to complete their investigation into the motive behind the shooting, liberals took to social media.

The main theme seemed to be that because Trump called places like CNN ‘fake news’ he was somehow related to the shooter or that ‘fake news’ was the motive. The truth is always more complicated than fiction, and in this case, the left couldn’t be further from the truth.


More Tweets exist, blaming the President for what happened, some have since been removed. Likely because now that the truth is out no one wants to claim their mistake. The reality of the alleged deranged gunman is that he targeted the newspaper over a story they wrote back in 2011, police say. Take a look.

As Reported By Town Hall:

The rest of the media should have taken note. There was no drama, commentary, or jumping to conclusions with this story. The publication also had stories about the colleagues that they lost, which also served as a final goodbye.

Still, plenty of anti-Trump folk on social media could not help but blame one person for this shooting: the president of the United States. No, I’m not kidding. Not shocking, I know—but it’s just totally unspooled. Ramos’ beef with The Capital stems back to 2011. In 2012, a defamation lawsuit was dismissed.

All of this predated Trump as president, but it’s convenient. It’s reckless and totally predictable that the Left stepped on a rake doing this. God bless Twitchy for doing this; I would go insane finding the worst of the worst on liberal Twitter.

It’s the age of Trump Derangement Syndrome if you think the media, everyone really, would slow their roll on stories like this in the Trump-era. Nope, not in the least bit, which ends up with the whole industry having egg on its face.

When The New Republic notes this tragic and heinous shooting stemmed from the Obama-era days, you know a) it’s not Trump’s fault (so ridiculous we have to say this); and b) the Left stepped in it.
