Bernie Sanders Goes Against the Democratic Party Line, Says President Trump Isn’t to Blame for Pittsburgh Synagogue Attack
Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders does not blame President Donald Trump for the shooting at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue, unlike many of his leftist peers.
“I’m not going to sit here and blame the president,” Senator Sanders said on Monday, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.
Like President Trump, Senator Sanders had a derranged fan who used political violence against his percieved enemies — shooting up the Congressional Baseball Game last year and injuring House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and several others. The shooter had screamed “this is for healthcare” as he opened fire, according to Senator Rand Paul.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders made this point today during her press briefing.
“It’s not the president, no more than it was Bernie Sanders’ fault for the individual who shot up a baseball field,” the press secretary asserted during the briefing.
Sarah Sanders: "The very first thing that the president did was condemn the attacks … the very first thing the media did was blame the president."

While partisans have been busy pointing fingers, at least there are some who understand that the people responsible for these horrific attacks are the extemists themselves.
