Before knowing all of the facts, Legacy Media with Trump Derangement Syndrome rushed to blame President Trump for the horrendous Capital Gazette shooting, the result of a dispute the shooter had with the newspaper that began in 2012.
President Trump made a statement earlier on the day of the attack, yet watch the questioning of the president, as shouted by a press that had none of the facts yet they yelled at him as though he held responsibility for the attack.
"Can you please talk to us about the dead reporters in Annapolis?"
“Do you have any words of condolence for the families, Mr. President?”
"Why are you walking away?"

Heather Higgins makes an important point here:
Apparently it can, both reasonably and accurately, be separated. Have we learned anything about waiting for facts before jumping to self-satisfying conclusions? Hope so, though sadly don't expect so. https://t.co/I5TZtAo1Iz

I know we don’t know anything right now, but I’m not going to be surprised if @realDonaldTrump helped kill my friend. Was that civil enough or everybody?
