Deputy Scott Peterson didn’t get the Trump nickname treatment. Should we help Trump out and call Peterson “Slow on the Trigger” Peterson?
There’s a lot going on with Peterson. Let’s start with Trump’s criticism.
On his way to today’s CPAC conference, President Trump criticized the Florida deputy who didn’t confront Nikolas Cruz, the school shooter from Parkland, Fla., saying “he certainly did a poor job,” and insinuating that he was a “coward.”
Trump is playing 8D chess again. He’s trying to deflect attention away from gun grabs and the NRA, as well as Second Amendment Republicans.
I would advise deputy Scott Peterson to slink quietly away and not sue Trump for defamation. Trump has a right to his opinion, just as we all do. If his opinion is that Peterson is a coward, then he can say that.
However, can you imagine Obama ever saying anything this politically incorrect? Obama, the empty suit, would indirectly criticize police on the whole, but not specific cops.
Now, if only Trump would call out Justine Damond’s killer, Officer Mohammed Noor, as a murderer, it would be great.
