I like to wait for the dust to clear before opining on events. Not everyone does. The bodies of the victims of the Parkland shooting weren’t cold before democrats clawed their way to the front of TV cameras. A nice touch. Of course, obama had to be heard.
Left wing news outlets leaped at the report that Cruz was a member of a white nationalist group.

Just one problem. He is not a member of the Republic of Florida.
Local law enforcement sources have not found a connection between accused Parkland school shooter Nikolas Cruz and a Tallahassee-based paramilitary group.
Leon County law enforcement sources told the Tallahassee Democrat that they could not find information linking Cruz, 19, to the Republic of Florida Militia, as claimed by the group’s self-proclaimed leader Jordan Jereb.
His comments to the Anti-Defamation League and The Associated Press set off a media firestorm Thursday at about midday that Cruz was connected to the alt-right, white nationalist group.
Hours after news outlets around the nation reported Cruz’s alleged ties, Leon County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Grady Jordan told the Tallahassee Democrat investigative work did not yield any connections.
“We are still doing some work but we have no known ties between the ROF, Jordan Jereb or the Broward shooter,” Jordan said.
(Why would a white supremacist kill so many white people?)
The media was pranked and swallowed it whole.
The “leader” of the group, Jordan Jereb, explained it this way.

Unable to locate him? He was all over Instagram:

For the record, have a look at what the Republic of Florida is all about:
This sounds a lot more like Bernie Sanders than it does Sean Hannity.
And of course, the left blamed Trump.
