    As he usually does.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    The really pathetic thing is this: This "inconsistent standard" that Shapiro speaks about is blatantly deliberate. The Trump haters are throwing all semblance of logic and reason into the toilet in favor of spin and hyperbole...simply because they hate Trump.

    This isn't anything new, but it has been ramped up since the 2018 election and the Weissmann report failed to dispose of Trump like they thought it would.

    And any media who try to dial back on the hyperbole and spin...who try to inject a bit of reality to their reporting...will get slammed by their fellow Trump haters. Here is an example...

    This is what the NYT printed...

    ...and this is what they changed it to after complaints from Dem primary candidates and other Trump haters...

    The conservative double standard: If a Muslim or an immigrant does an attack, the entire group is responsible and we should act to stop them now. If a white conservative does an attack everyone is an individual and he's not representative of the group.

    It is absolutely hilarious to see you guys change your opinion based on the race and religion of a shooter.

    OK, so you agree with the OP position that Trump is not responsible for the criminal actions of each the 63M folks that voted for him any more than Hillary is responsible for the criminal actions of each of the 65M folks that voted for her.

    No one said he pulled the trigger. Literally nobody. He did however use fear of Hispanic immigrants to get white people enraged and thus encouraged this behavior.

    Some folks are indeed enraged about and fearful of environmental damage or the actions of racist LEOs but if a handful of them resort to criminal acts to "take matters into their own hands" that is not the responsibility of the folks who "demanded action" to stop environmental damage or racist LEO actions.
