Sept. 3 (AP) President Donald Trump stopped his motorcade in Manhattan today, jumped out of his limousine and shot a man on Fifth Avenue who was shouting anti-Trump epithets. The shooting was recorded by the White House press pool as well as by dozens of bystanders with cellphones and by security cameras in the area. When asked for his reaction, House Speaker Paul Ryan said, We will need more information than is available at this point.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said through pursed lips that he was not going to comment on every up and down with this president. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes said he already had information indicating that the man whom Trump shot worked for the Clinton Foundation and may have been a relative of former Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Fox News did not cover Trumps shooting at the top of its broadcast, which focused instead on the killing of an Iowa woman by an undocumented immigrant. Foxs only reference to the fact that the president shot a man on Fifth Avenue was that a New York City man died today when he ran right into a bullet fired by the president.
Sen. Lindsey Graham quipped that Trump shoots as well as he putts and that this incident would not cause the South Carolina senator to cancel his coming golf round with the president at his Bedminster, New Jersey, course....

If Trump shoots someone on Fifth Avenue it will probably be Thomas Friedman.
It would be a public service.
My first question would be, "Was it Thomas Friedman?"
This is pathetic.
LOL. Great minds think alike.
Mebbe they needed shooting.
This idiot needs a vacation to rest his pea brain.
Trump Derangement Syndrome at its finest.
This is your brain on marxism.
To a marxist, it’s a tweedly-dee world where you make sh!zzle up every day, then call it pecan pie.
What can you expect from the racist New York Times?
For his final act as POTUS he should shoot an evil one at Guantanamo. Volunteers to take care of the others.
What if Thomas Friedman were a journalist? It’s about equally likely.
If Trump shot a man on Fifth Ave, many of us will just shrug, say the guy probably needed killing, and move on.
Or Paul Krugman
Best President in a long time, easily Top Eight all-time already... many major improvements for America and Americans already... murder is clearly a high crime... he could pardon himself...
Assuming he gets to 2020, would I refuse to vote for him for the shooting? If not, what would make me refuse??
(For me, shooting an innocent and non-violent dog, on camera, would definitely make me pause... for the shooting of a human, I'd still need more details, LOL)
.or self defense.
If the man he shot was Tom Friedman, a lot of people — both liberal and conservative — would be very happy.
I’ve met Thomas Friedman
He has been told how smart he is within the Manhattan Cocktail party bubble, he actually believes it.
I found him to be a conceited idiot educated beyond intelligence.
