Our media seems curiously uninterested in the attempted assassination of Trump

Say, did you hear that somebody tried to assassinate the presumptive Republican nominee for President? If you’re a regular reader of Hot Air then you probably caught the news when John Sexton covered it last night. But if you’re a more casual consumer of political news you might have missed it.

    The media don’t want to discuss how yet again a democrat tried to use violence to supress free speech.

    A part of me welcomes the media blackout on this guy, as the progs would surely make him a folk hero / SJW celebrity.

      Actually that would be great, the more their true nature is exposed the better.

    Now if the dirt bag was successful they’d be trumpeting it gleefully from the rooftops.

    Wonder who gave him the money to buy the ticket in Vegas to the Trump event. He had another ticket to the Trump Phoenix event also. He was driving a BMW and even if a rental, it would cost a few bucks, plus all the gas. Someone, a Sanders or Hillary dumb lefty supporter or group likely sponsored him. Think he appears in court again on July 5th.

    The kid messed up, and for that he only gets 6 minutes of fame.
    If he had succeeded, he could have made VP.
