Donald Trump has an unlikely ally defending him against claims that his rhetoric is at fault for last week’s mass shootings: former Democratic Party head Donna Brazile.
“President Trump had nothing to do with the maniac, and I’m being gracious here, the maniac who shot up a Wal-Mart store,” she said Friday in an interview on Fox News Radio. “He had nothing to do with the person who shot up the bar in Dayton.”
“This is unbecoming of the country. The President of the United States should not be blamed for these individual killers.”
Brazile refused to follow the lead of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren and others who have called Trump a white supremacist in the wake of the attacks in Texas and in Ohio.
“This conversation about race and racism, domestic terrorism, white supremacy, white nationalism, it is that I am profoundly saddened as an American,” Brazile said. “To point fingers and to play this so-called blame game.”
“I’m black, yes I’m black,” she continued. “That’s who I am but that’s not everything.”
