At least 11 dead in the Pittsburgh hate crime:

Shouting anti-Semitic slurs, a man opened fire in a Pittsburgh synagogue Saturday morning, killing at least 11 people and wounding six others, city officials said. President Trump described the shooting as a “wicked act of mass murder” that was “pure evil.”

The suspect, identified by law enforcement officials as Robert D. Bowers, 46, surrendered to the police after barricading himself inside a third-floor office of the synagogue, the Tree of Life Congregation in eastern Pittsburgh. Four police officers were among the wounded, the authorities said.

“It’s a very horrific crime scene,” said Wendell D. Hissrich, Pittsburgh’s public safety director, adding that federal authorities were investigating the mass shooting as a hate crime. “It’s one of the worst that I’ve seen, and I’ve been on some plane crashes. It’s very bad.”

Saturday’s mass shooting came just 10 days before a bitterly fought national midterm election that has divided the country and set Americans on edge, and in a week in which more than a dozen pipe bombs were mailed to critics of Mr. Trump.

Don’t worry, the president has a compelling policy response:

At Joint Base Andrews, Mr. Trump said that if the temple “had some kind of protection” that “it could have been a much different situation.”

I see no flaws in this “just come to the bris fully strapped” theory…

Idiotic as this is, always worth remembering that on this as on so much else there’s not an inch of daylight between Trump and the Republican establishment, the contrarian pundit class, etc.
