It was an odd article. About two Donald Trump tweets.
First, NBC reported that after a gunman killed 26 people in Texas, President Trump tweeted: May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas.
Then NBC compared that tweet to another tweet by Trump after the terrorist attack in New York City – when Trump said: In NY, looks like another attack by a very sick and deranged person.
NBC went on to report the ‘shooter’ in Texas was an American while the terrorist in New York was an Uzbek immigrant – but then, pricking Trump, concluded, ‘Still, the differences in tone… are striking.’
President Trump has his vices. But was offering condolences to Texas after tweeting a terrorist in New York was deranged a double standard? What kind of sense does that make?
