President Donald Trump tweeted last night about the shooting in Sutherland Springs, TX, which occurred 9 days ago:
May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived.

Update: The tweet was deleted, see screenshot below.
The tweet is similar to one he sent on November 5, the day of the actual attack in Sutherland Springs:
May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.

There are 2 possibilities: Was this in the drafts folder and sent out accidentally?
Did this get stuck in his drafts for 9 days? https://t.co/jLckis8z9a

Or did he (or whoever wrote the tweet) copy-and-paste and forget to change the city to that of Rancho Tehama, CA, where 4 people were killed and 10 wounded on Tuesday?
Even for Trump, this is astounding: he’s confused last week’s mass shooting with yesterday’s. Terrible insult to the victims of both. https://t.co/trwjMyzvcS

Piers Morgan, who defends Trump on most things other than guns, thinks it was the later:
At least get your mass shootings right, Mr President. This was last week. The new one is in California. https://t.co/PP9PplvM4r
