After it was learned that the Alexandria gunman who shot several people during a congressional baseball practice had been a Bernie Sanders volunteer with anti-Trump and anti-Republican views, Politico’s Hadas Gold wrote about some reaction from the Right, as tweeted out by the New York Times’ Maggie Haberman:

Mentioned in the article is Donald Trump, Jr. slamming a performance of “Shakespeare in the Park” which features a staged Trump assassination which has led some sponsors to boycott.

Concern about “rush to blame” seems to be subjective.
Beat me to it.

Why am I certain that if I run a search I will find that Haberman blamed the Giffords shooting on the GOP.
