Trump is insane:

Says Obama was complicit in Orlando murders

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

In a June 13 interview Donald Trump suggested that President Obama was somehow complicit in the horrific murder of 49 people in an Orlando Gay bar.

'Look, we're led by a man that either is not tough, not smart, or he's got something else in mind,' Trump said in a Fox News interview, only 24 hours after the Orlando killings.

'And the something else in mind - you know, people can't believe it. People cannot, they cannot believe that President Obama is acting the way he acts and can't even mention the words 'radical Islamic terrorism.' There's something going on. It's inconceivable. There's something going on.'

Later in the interview, Trump was asked to explain why he called for Obama to resign after the shooting.

'He doesn't get it,' Trump answered, 'or he gets it better than anybody understands - it's one or the other and either one is unacceptable.'

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Trump alleged that Obama was a Kenyan-born Muslim and therefore not legally qualified to be president of the United States.

Meanwhile Trump supporter and conspiracy theory promoter Alex Jones alleged that the Orlando shooting was a 'false flag' operation that Obama would use as a pretext to ban firearms in violation of the Second Amendment.

Jones hosts The Alex Jones Show and owns the website Infowars.com, which he uses to promote conspiracy theories about national tragedies, including the Oklahoma City bombing, the Boston Marathon bombing, the Newtown, Conn., school shooting, and 9/11.

NRA blames 'political correctness'
The NRA also blamed the Obama administration for the killings in Orlando. Federal agencies who investigated the killer did nothing because he was a Muslim, the group suggested.

'The terrorist in Orlando had been investigated multiple times by the FBI,' the NRA said in a June 14 statement.

'He had a government-approved security guard license with a contractor for the Department of Homeland Security. Yet his former co-workers reported violent and racist comments. Unfortunately, the Obama administration's political correctness prevented anything from being done about it.'

Echoing the NRA, a Republican lawmaker from Tennessee said he would go ahead with his plan to give away AR-15 rifles, the same firearm used in Sunday's deadly attack in Orlando, as prizes at a fundraiser later this month.

State Rep. Andy Holt posted a long explanation on his Facebook page June 13, saying he would not back off his promise to give away assault weapons as a prize at his 'Hog Fest' fundraiser on June 25.

'I'm furious that I get phone calls from the media asking me if I'm still going to give away an AR-15 at our Hog Fest, rather than asking me how many extra firearms I'll be handing out to ensure people can protect themselves,' Holt wrote. 'After all, it was a bullet that stopped the terrorist. Amazing how so many seem to miss that fact.'
