Hodgkinson launched into Trump tirade before baseball practice s

Hodgkinson, the man who shot and wounded House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) last Wednesday during the Republican's baseball practice, reportedly went on a long anti-Trump tirade at an auto fix shop near the ball field on the day before the shooting.

Duncan and Brooks were at the Alexandria, Virginia, field where GOP members of Congress were practicing for a congressional baseball game Wednesday, although Duncan left before the shooting began. The members of that group celebrated the shooting.

But online and on talk radio, several conservatives questioned whether aggressive opposition to all things Trump had created a unsafe climate, and some faulted those on the left.

"I am sickened by this despicable act", Sanders said in a statement condemning all acts of violence. They released photos of guns similar to the handgun and rifle that were used in the attack, which officials have said were purchased legally. But they said they had not yet clarified who, if anyone, he planned to target, or why, beyond his animus toward President Donald Trump and the Republicans he felt were ruining the country. Can you imagine the outrage that would have ensued had the actor resembled former President Barack Obama?

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise remains in serious condition at a local hospital, one of five people wounded in the attack, including two Capitol Police officers. Authorities were investigating Hodgkinson's social media posts, a cellphone, computer and camera taken from his van. This is also because Hodgkinson only attacked Republicans.

"They were already inclined to not have town halls".

"We are public servants and serving the public mens attending events and being accessible", he said. "We're starting to think about ways we can shift tactics..."

In the hundreds of protests against Trump since his election, which often have designated "marshals" to keep demonstrators under control, there have been rare, scattered incidents of violence. Fewer and fewer people can tolerate friendships with political adversaries, and polls show more and more Americans - yes, especially Democrats - have trouble respecting anyone who voted for the other candidate. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is reportedly looking into his alleged anti-Trump Facebook posts. The article even went on to quote a Democratic staffer who denied claims that Hodgkinson was known to be a volunteer for them during the 2016 presidential campaign. Make no mistake - both sides have engaged in this behavior.

CNN reported that Hodgkinson was a "Bernie Sanders supporter" who was "strongly anti-Trump".

Evans said it was politically motivated. "It's not the conservatives that are shooting people in the baseball field". The killer was a white supremacist.
