"Something else I think to keep in mind, alot of these country music supporters were likely Trump supporters"

What does this mean? Why did he say it? Is this guy just an idiot, or is CNN trying to equate Trump supporters with gun violence, ie "people who listen to country music support Trump and guns and are therefore more likely to be victims of gun violence"?
This really seems like an absolutely low blow by CNN to try to make Trump look bad at the expense of the hundreds who were either wounded or killed last night.

How does this make Trump look bad? If anything it gives Trump supporters 'victim-hood'. The radical 'Left' picking on Trump and his supporters. The guy's an asshat. But things like this bring out the very worst people.

Everybody likes music. Let's keep this real and apolitical.
This is tragic enough without that stuff.
Isn't it?

I wish I could give you half my stars for that post.

But I'm sure the OP will not be the last trying to connect President Trump with the nutball who shot all those people.

peace

CNN's MO is to push the Leftist agenda as far as they possibly can.
It isn't the first time they have bashed Trump supporters...in fact, they do it almost every day.
To me, for them to say something like that, they must be assuming this killer had a problem with Trump and his supporters.
I don't think they would have any other reason to say it and quite frankly, they are sick assholes for saying it.
The killer's motive is not known yet but CNN has it already figured out in their deranged minds.

It's an effective psychological trick. I don't know the word for it, but the idea is that you associate some horrible thing with something else that you don't want people to support, and it will seed subconscious negative feelings towards that thing. For example, Facebook might show a news story about tons of people dying of drug overdoses and then immediately afterwards have some story about Trump's drug policy. While they might be completely unrelated, some people will feel bad when they read the drug story and carry that mood over to the Trump story, and then retain those feelings in the future whenever they hear about Trump. This seems like CNN is basically saying "OMG, this horrible shooting happened! The people that were there were Trump supporters!" And now there are undoubtedly people in the country who feel the same revulsion toward Trump that they do toward the shooting itself. Who is going to see the news about the shooting and then immediately jump to positive thoughts? You won't see "Oh look, 50+ people dead and hundreds wounded, but Trump has really been doing a good job with such-and-such issue lately!".

How is the Original Poster connecting them to Trump? The person on CNN is doing that and he even said that person was an idiot.

There it is... I was waiting for the media turned this to a political mess. I dont have the link so you'll have to google it. But a lawyer for cbs said she feels no remorse for those at the concert because most country fans are gun touting people.

The OP didn't say it.
He is just reporting that the Leftist shill from CNN said it.
To me, the dumbasses comment has no place in the discussion about this tragedy but it doesn't surprise me he said it.

What? I never insinuated anything of the like. There's no reason to think there is any connection whatsoever.

It was kind of a dumb thing to say, but seriously. Most people that like country music are conservative/Republican and I would say DID vote for Trump. Yes no?

He actually said he thought that Trump "hit a pitch perfect tone" in his response, right before he said that. I listened twice and I didn't pick up anything that was negative of Trump or Trump supporters. I think he was trying to make a point about Trump possibly having an even stronger connection to this group of victims than he might with another.

Could have gone without being said but nothing derogatory from what I heard.

Also...

LOOK at the crowd. Scantily clad PARTY people. It's Vegas. I'd see a JEFF DUNHAM concert if loaded enough.

We already have people all over saying that this is the "karmic response" to Puerto Rico, People like this cbs exec who doesn't care, as long as it was republicans that were gunned down... dailycaller.com... etc....

It's really pretty sick. So much for the political side of love and tolerance, huh?

I think the point is , that he said it all.

He said a lot of them were likely, I can't see anything wrong with that in the context of Trump going there. He did not say most of them. Just because people like country and western music doesn't mean they are Republicans. In fact, most people I know around here who are country and western fans are probably democrats. Conservative and liberal is not really an issue, Trump is more liberal than conservative by nature, but he does respect conservative opinions unless they buck heads with him.


Why the hell did that reporter even bring that up about Trump. It is not even related to what happened.

A 2004 Gallup survey found nearly 60 percent of country fans identify more strongly with Republicans, compared with 11 percent who identify as liberal and around 30 percent who say they’re political moderates. While many rock and classical music fans say they’re conservatives but not nearly as big a portion as in country

.I think it's relative to this discussion because I keep thinking this shooter thought he was doing something Against trump or trump supporters.
