“It’s a shame. I think it’s a very sad thing when a thing like that happens.”

This was President Trump’s feeble response to the recent arrest of domestic terrorist Christopher Hasson.

Hasson is a self-proclaimed white nationalist who had accumulated 15 weapons and a list of over 20 prominent Democrats and media critics of Trump he allegedly intended to kill.

I wonder if Trump’s response would have been as tepid if the intended victims were Sean Hannity, Fox News and Republican leaders.

What’s really a shame and sad is that Trump devotes more time and effort condemning political satire on Saturday Night Live than he does formulating an intelligent response to a potential mass murder of U.S. citizens.

But the fact Trump has his priorities lined up perversely shouldn’t surprise us by now.
