Trump Ignores Terrorist Attack in Minneapolis. Why?

Donald Trump still hasn't said a word about Saturday's terrorist attack in Minneapolis Minnesota.

Is that because the terrorist targeted Muslims and in Trump's world, Muslims don't count as much as white Christians?

On Saturday morning, someone - it's still unclear who - threw a bomb into the largest mosque in Minnesota.

This person then drove away in a pickup truck as the bomb exploded.

No one was was hurt - but as Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton pointed out - there's no question about what this incident was -- a terrorist attack.

"It's a crime. As someone said in the meeting, if the roles were reversed, it would be called a terrorist attack. And that's what it is, an act of terrorism."

This attack occurred at 5 AM Saturday morning. The president has said NOTHING. ZIP.

He has, however, found the time to blast CNN on Twitter.

This outrageous silence is because the potential victims of this attack were Muslim, right?

So, I see mention of Trump's silence on this attack in the left leaning media...any mention in the most widely read or viewed outlets? CNN, NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox (that last one was a joke folks).

We'd better be able to get out the vote in 2018...and perhaps ask Jimmy Carter if he'll oversee a UN oversite of our elections this time around.

Thom, maybe I'm "on the rag" (sorry ladies), or perhaps the recent full moon is affecting me, but Jesus, can't you pick a more important topic to discuss? Fine. Some loonie throws a bomb into a mosque at 5:30 AM injuring no one (I suspect the timing was intentional) and Trump doesn't get on Twitter and condemn it. OK, that's predictable. It was a terrorist attack, no doubt. So are the daily multiple acts of violence against our own citizens by crazed cops in which people ARE killed, and Trump's response? "Hey, don't worry about bumping their little heads on the way into the back seat".

You want something to engage your readers? Why don't you throw out the pissing match that we, the USA, are engaged in with North Korea over their nukes? Today they threatened to nuke Guam. And we're taking them seriously? Anyone that graduated high sfchool knows that if that happened (much less a strike on Palo Alto), we'd turn the north end of that tiny peninsula into a glass parking lot within, say 37 minutes!

Of course, that drags China into the equation, and now we really DO have a problem, involving millions of lives, not tens or dozens. So why aren't you focused on issues like "why is the USA, with ten fold the military might of any other country on the planet (thanks to our generous trillion dollar annual budget) posturing over this "North Korean threat"?

I have to say, sometimes your topics strike me as sophomoric. Sorry.

Trump hasn't mentioned the Bannonesque mosque attack because his Foxaganda channel most likely did not cover it. Do you really think Trump is any more informed than the average Fox viewer?

Trump says he will respond to Korea with "fire and fury"......I think he's arrogant and unbalanced enough to do just that, but he'll be stopped. One thing I'm certain of, and it bears repeating, he's going to make a giant foreign policy mistake.

I'm still betting that he'll bomb Iran's nuclear facilities....he has plenty of support for that catastrophic blunder.

If it was not on Fox News the White House does not know about it.

I'm getting really tired of nothing but trashing Trump; it's getting very old and tired. Also, no one is giving Trump any credit for trying to forge an alliance with Russia to end all warfaring in the Middle East. There is NO WAY I'm going to blindly bash Trump and side with the Demorats. As far as I am concerned, between what Bill Clinton did, what Barack Obama did, and what Chillary Clinton wanted to do to us, the Demorats are DOA. And I would also like to note that both the (R) and the (D) have been putting into place across this whole country laws that now prohibit Third Parties. And another thing is that Congress has now passed laws hamstringing the office of the POTUS, so all of this panic about what Trump will do is a tempest in a teapot. The real danger now is the bloody bipartisan Congress which supports ENDLESS WAR.

Erinrose has just posted a totally uninformed post that is just about The same level as Dianne or OU812. Try adding some references to that Erin.

People have opinions without references. At least people who think for themselves. You on the other hand have probably never had an original thought, an original idea, or have any idea what the word original means. Try exercising your middle school dropout brain, and post some ideas. Stop attacking others who have the courage to express their ideas. What are you afraid off?

Every time I am feeling really low I sit back and think there is probably a Mrs. Legend and I instantly feel better.

Scavengers of prey: The two types are New World and Old World, often scavenging on carcasses. Some traditional Old World type are not closely related to the other types. A particular characteristic of many Scavengers of prey is that they keep the head clean when feeding. A group of Scavengers of prey is called a wake.

Drew the rats out of the hole!!! Why are you so against references? Opinion based on nothing is exactly that. Erinrose cannot post a reference for his post. Thus it is meaningless jibberish, just like all of Dianes and OU812's posts.

Where are YOUR references? What you posted, has no references, is it your opinion based on nothing, or are there unquoted references?

The Republican MO is to post whatever Fake News that they want and call it fact (or in this case post it as fact). Then call Fact Fake News. Post 10 is typical. If you have read my posts I post a lot of reference.
