Amidst the emerging chaos from the mass shooting that occurred during a Jason Aldean concert in Las Vegas last night, President Donald Trump communicated to a nation waking up to this horrible news in the manner that he knows best — by sending a Tweet expressing his warmest condolences.
My warmest condolences and sympathies to the victims and families of the terrible Las Vegas shooting. God bless you!

Earlier on CNN, reporter Jay Johns had questioned why the President had not yet addressed this tragedy, noting that Trump’s behavior of early morning tweets suggests that he would have Tweeted something about the events in Las Vegas in the same manner he tweets political asides. Well this tweet put any of that (premature?) political critiques aside, at least for the moment.
