President Donald Trump responded to the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh — which took eight lives — by blaming the synagogue for not having armed guards inside.
Trump failed to mention that the gunman also shot at least three armed police officers, notes CBS News:
This is a case where if they had an armed guard inside, they might have been able to stop him immediately.
Maybe there would be nobody killed. If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better.
This is a dispute that will always exist, I suspect, but if they had some kind of a protection inside the temple, uh, maybe it could have been a very much different kind of situation.
They didn’t and he was able to do things that unfortunately he shouldn’t have been able to do.
