Trump Tweets Condolences for Wrong Shooting: ‘May God Be With the People of Sutherland Springs’

Lone gunman kills five people in California, but the president offers sympathy for last week’s massacre at a Texas church

Donald Trump appeared to get his mass shootings mixed up when he offered his condolences for Sutherland Springs, Texas, Tuesday night — in the wake of a massacre in Northern California.

“May God be with the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI and Law Enforcement has arrived,” the president tweeted.

However, the latest shooting by a lone gunman — which killed five people and injured 10 more — took place in rural Rancho Tehama, while Sutherland Springs was the location of the church shooting on Nov. 5 where 25 people were gunned down.

Some Twitter users suggested that Trump may have just been confused by  all the mass shootings in America lately.

Another suggested that the POTUS had a template for his post-massacre messages. “Same tweet. Mass shootings are literally now a “fill-in-the-blank” game for him _________________,” they wrote.

Others said Trump was ignoring Tuesday’s incident because “he hates California.”
