Trump on Garland Shooting: ‘Terrible,’ but Why Are You ‘Taunting’ Muslims?

Donald Trump was on Fox News this morning to discuss the Texas shooting outside a “Draw Mohammed” cartoon contest, and asked why people would want to “taunt” Muslims like that.

Trump repeatedly called the shooting “terrible” and “disgusting,” but said of Pamela Geller, “It looked like she’s just taunting everybody. What is she doing drawing Mohammed?… Isn’t there something else they can draw?”

Geller has been defending the event as a big free speech issue ever since the shooting last night, but Trump just asked why they can’t express themselves in a different way. He remarked, “I’m one who believes in free speech probably more than she does.”

Trump concluded, “What the hell is she doing and what is the purpose of it?”
