    Indeed of course that all matters though there's a reason why I emphasised Senators and Governors not Congressmen as the former traditionally are a lot more independent than the latter.

    In other words, Trump IS the leader of the Republican Party.

    That's not really how the public views it.
    Hope is the denial of reality

    No but it is how the elected Representatives, Senators, Governors, State Senators, State Representatives etc see it. Versus GGT's suggestion that they should "jump ship" simply going against Trump is more plausible than jumping ship.

    Hang on, Rand. Are you saying elected Republicans don't consider Trump the leader of their party?

    You know the best way to deflate conspiracy theorists is to actually put more information out there.

    You gotta do what you gotta do when "unstable white guy" describes both the shooter and your base.

    You know an even better way? Not having freaking congressmen spread them.

    Unless he stated something factually wrong I'm not sure what the issue is. A lot of other Americans are curious as well as what was up with this guy. Did he have support from someone? What were his political beliefs? What were his motives? EVERY mass shooting leads to these questions and most of the time all that information is on blast within a week of the event. It didn't happen here and because of this conspiracy theories spawn.

    Are you serious? The entire terrorism angle is fake.

    There is a difference between fake and skeptical.

    Saying "Terrorists did it, this was a cover-up, 911 inside job raaaah." And saying "Kinda odd how we still don't know any details, seems interesting ISIS took credit for it - could we get some more light on his motives?"

    The sad truth is that there is little doubt liberals would hide information from the public about who did it for fear of 'increased bigotry.' At this point there is no real evidence that ISIS or any other Islamic Terrorist faction was behind it - ISIS takes credit for everything and anything. The point is release the info - let people's questions be answered. I see little to no reason why investigators haven't pushed some plausible theories backed by evidence they found. Normally these crazies leave a trail. When the silence is deafening you get people putting their own theories out instead.
