Trump Attacks FBI In Petty Rant During Active Shooting Situation In Texas School

President Donald Trump spent his “executive time” attacking the FBI on Friday instead of paying attention to an active shooter situation in a Texas school.

On Thursday, Trump seized upon a report alleging that a government informant talked to members of Trump’s 2016 campaign during the election as part of the early stages of the Russia investigation.

Trump took to Twitter and immediately accused former President Obama and the FBI of spying on his campaign.

Trump’s accusations are unfounded since the report never mentioned that it was an FBI informant or that it was Obama who gave the green light.

Even Rudy Giuliani admitted on Friday morning that Trump doesn’t really know if there was an informant. Giuliani told CNN that:

“Here’s the issue that I really feel strongly about with this informant, if there is one. First of all, I don’t know for sure, nor does the President, if there really was. We’re told that.”

Nevertheless, Trump launched another petty attack on the FBI not long after Giuliani’s interview, first calling for the prosecution of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and then once again referring to Russian meddling as a “hoax” before claiming that the FBI embedded an informant in his campaign.

As Trump was throwing this tantrum, an active shooting situation was developing at Santa Fe High School in Texas. With at least eight fatalities reported so far, one has to wonder what took Trump so long to address the situation, and why tweeting about conspiracy theories was more important to him.

It took Trump about one and a half hours to finally address the shooting on Twitter, and he didn’t have nearly as much to say about it as he did about the FBI.

Perhaps if he spent more time monitoring what’s going on around the country than he does launching attacks against those he considers his enemies, Trump would actually take the time to give a damn about Americans who are being slaughtered in school.
