Rep. Mo Brooks was on TV relaying his eyewitness account of the shooting of colleague, majority whip Steve Scalise (LA), AND capitol police. An obvious assassination attempt with a high-powered rifle. It occurred at a local YMCA near a baseball field. Multiple people shot. Scalise bleeding badly.


One news report identified this as a later mug shot of Hodgkinson, and gave it the ID of a sheriff's office, but it doesn't look like one to me, besides which, who posts a mug shot of himself to his own Facebook page?

FOX reporting, the shooter is identified as James Hodgkinson, 66, from Bellville, Illinois. A Facebook page allegedly of the shooter, rants about Trump being a traitor, along with threats to do something about it. He lists Bernie Sanders as his fave politician.

This shooting is the direct result of the political anti-Trump verbiage that the networks spew out on a daily basis. It's comparable to the dashcam videos that were released, of cops shooting black thugs on Negro Nightly News (and others) that incited riots.

The constant dehumanizing news reporting about Trump by the networks has now achieved its first goal. It would be naive to think this shooting stops the hate talk for more than a few days. It's possible yesterday’s Sessions hearing was even the tipping point. These networks have dirty, filthy hands in this.

This might as obvious an attempt at a political assassination in my lifetime. When Sirhan Sirhan assassinated Robert Kennedy in 1968, he apparently did so because RFK promised to sell jet fighters to Israel.

BTW, I was for RFK, having graduated from high school that spring. And it would have been nice if Bobby had employed professional bodyguards who had walked in front of him, not behind like Rafer Johnson and Rosey Grier.
