The Day After Horror in Orlando, Only Trump Has Any Answers
On the second day after the Orlando massacre, America’s president and his would-be successors performed to type. President Obama and Hillary Clinton still want it to be about banning guns and “countering extremism”; Donald Trump wants to face the facts about radical Islam.
Obama called the perp a case of “homegrown extremism” who’d been “inspired by various extremist information that was disseminated over the Internet.”
No mention of the killer’s father, an Afghan immigrant who has praised the Taliban. Nor of the fact that (according to some of his ex-classmates) the young Omar Mateen cheered as the second plane hit the World Trade Center on 9/11.
