In a now deleted tweet, actor Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) appeared to link tonight’s horrific mosque shooting in Quebec to President Donald Trump:
What the heck is wrong with him?
Typical response from the left, blame everyone else except the actual ones committing the atrocity. https://t.co/LrheYMJzcq

In a separate but equally asinine tweet, journalist Conor McCormick also blamed President Trump for the deaths:
Too early to know if #Quebec mosque shooting was perpetrated by right-wing extremists. If it was, then this is result of Trump rhetoric.

Or shall we say, alleged journalist?
"Too early to know," "But if it was." Dude, are you a "journalist"? https://t.co/Sp9JcR82IM

As for the shooting, we still don’t have many details, but we’re seeing reports of 5 dead in the attack with 2 of 3 gunmen arrested. The police haven’t released the names of the alleged gunmen or a motive:

PM Justin Trudeau’s response:
Tonight, Canadians grieve for those killed in a cowardly attack on a mosque in Quebec City. My thoughts are with victims & their families.
