As we told you earlier, Rep. Ted Lieu linked former President Trump to massage parlor shootings in the Atlanta-area that left eight people dead.
Cherokee County Sheriff Frank Reynolds says the suspect in a shooting spree that left eight people dead, including six people of Asian descent, bought the gun he used just hours earlier.https://t.co/r3yineD6r3

Lieu said the fact that six of those killed were Asian-American was tied to Trump’s use of “racist phrases like Kung Flu.”
However, police are saying there’s not yet any evidence that race was a factor in the shootings:
New: Atlanta shooting suspect told police he had “sexual addiction”, “indicators now may not be” racially motivated, says Cherokee Cty Sheriff Frank Reynolds.

Another Dem not interested in waiting to find out all the facts before blaming Trump is director/actor and charter member of the Hollywood chapter of the anti-Trump Resistance, Rob Reiner:
I’m sorry, but the deaths of over half a million Americans, the deadly seditious insurrection, the murders of Asian-Americans all lay at the feet of Donald J. Trump.

Just because Trump hasn’t been in office for almost two months doesn’t mean the TDS isn’t still very much active.

Perhaps Reiner doesn’t want to focus much on what’s currently happening at the border considering what he slammed Trump for during the previous administration:
You can lie all you want & try to gaslight the American people with alternative facts, but you will never be absolved of your cruelty. The trauma of ripping children from parents & forcing them into cages, living in filth, is just evil.#CloseTheCamps

And now, silence on that matter.
