Whether natural or man-made, what fuels the media’s need to politicize every major loss of life?

In a segment airing just after Trump addressed last night’s Las Vegas massacre earlier today, CNN Senior White House Correspondent Jeff Zeleny made a seemingly incongruent connection between concertgoers and the president.

Captured by the Daily Caller, Zeleny told viewers that “Something else, I think, to keep in mind–a lot of these country music supporters are likely Trump supporters. This is something, of course, hitting the tapestry of all Americans and there are going to be victims from across the country here.”

In his view, does this mean the gunman targeted Trump supporters? Possibly, but Zeleny’s intent might have been to echo leftist talking points that have been circulating across social media today, asserting that the president’s voters will now have no choice but to back more gun control legislation.

Luckily, he steered clear of the rhetoric that resulted in a CBS legal department VP’s termination earlier today.
