MSNBC used a chyron on Tuesday evening that read “TRUMP-INSPIRED TERRORISM,” in quotation marks, during The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell.

"At no point did O’Donnell or his guest note that the El Paso shooter allegedly claimed that he had arrived at his racist ideas many years before Trump’s presidential campaign."
Well, Lawrence... as long as we're comfortable using a crazy person's political views to smear folks we don't agree with...
Betts was known to talk about politics and would frequently trash Republicans. His Twitter account, created in 2013, was suspended late Sunday night. Before it was suspended, the account's Twitter bio said: "he/him / anime fan / metalhead / leftist / i'm going to hell and i'm not coming back."

Betts once showed video of a mass shooting to a woman on their first date.
Funny... not seeing too many screaming headlines about "Bernie Inspired Terrorism."
