In a shocking tweet, CNN is expressing pity and apparent sympathy for the man police say killed 17 students in Parkland, Florida.
On Thursday night, CNN seemed to defend the killer — whom this blog won’t name — from criticism from conservatives who deemed him a “sicko” and “nuts”.
President Trump described someone who would shoot up a school as a “savage sicko.” NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch called the Florida gunman “an insane monster” — “nuts” and crazy.” This kind of language about mental health could be harmful, experts say. https://t.co/cq5aedYQQW pic.twitter.com/UISK4fwSY3

“President Trump described someone who would shoot up a school as a ‘savage sicko,’” the “news” network tweeted this evening.
What would CNN call a person who mows down dozens of defenseless teenagers?
“NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch called the Florida gunman ‘an insane monster’ — ‘nuts’ and crazy,’” CNN continued.
“This kind of language about mental health could be harmful, experts say,” the network concluded.
The tweet included a photo of President Trump’s notes from a meeting with attack survivors and their parents.
