Right Wing Twitter Blames ‘Democrats’ and ‘Kathy Griffin’ For Shooting

A congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia was shattered Wednesday morning, when a gunman opened fire on Republican Senators and Congressmen wounding GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise, an aide, and two capitol police officers.

While the details are still unfolding, multiple eyewitnesses are reporting than up to 60 shots were fired by a gunman armed with a high-powered rifle. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) said that only the presence of Capitol Police prevented a massacre.

The targeted group seems to have been comprised exclusively of Republican lawmakers, and while that is definitely suspicious and suggests it was a targeted attack, it didn’t take long for right wing Twitter to place the blame on Democrats, leftists, and even GOP boogymen like Snoop Dogg and Kathy Griffin.
