The Right immediately started claiming after the gruesome Las Vegas mass shooting by Stephen Paddock, that since it was a country music concert, it must be a “liberal” trying to kill Trump supporters. Had it come out that he was a true Democrat, we never would have heard the end of it.
Well, the Right is in trouble, because Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock is now being reported to have been a fan of President Donald Trump, right up until the moment he killed 58 people and left another 500 injured, in the worst mass shooting in recent U.S. history.
Clark County, Nevada Sheriff Joe Lombardo gave a two hour interview with a local CBS affiliate in Las Vegas, in which he revealed Paddock was happy with Trump because the stock market was at record highs. Lombardo said, “[Paddock]he was happy with Trump because the stock market was doing well.”
Lombardo admitted that Paddock’s comment was “only thing that we have seen that references politics.” But it doesn’t take a genius to realize that only a fan of Trump would go around parroting his happiness with Trump because of the stock market being up.
Lombardo also said investigators have discovered from interviews that Paddock was narcissistic and obsessed with his “status as one of Las Vegas’s elite,” which the police have failed to explain further.
Again, Paddock being a Trump supporter doesn’t necessarily relate to his motive as a killer, but it is relevant information into the mind of a sociopath. And like mentioned earlier, if he had been a Democrat of some kind, the Right would run with it like crazy. So odds are, everyone will know he was a Trump supporter soon anyway.
