Trump-obsessed mosque shooter said he wished he’d killed more people during his attack

Published

A man who shot and killed six Muslims in a Quebec mosque in January 2017 told a court-appointed social worker that he wished he’d shot more people during the attack.

The Montreal Gazzette reported Monday that shooter Alexandre Bissonnette in September 2017 refuted his initial claim that he was unaware of his actions when he entered Quebec City’s Islamic Cultural Center and killed six people.

According to social worker Guylaine Cayouette, who recounted the meeting with Bissonnette during his Monday sentencing hearing, the shooter claimed he “wasn’t targeting Muslims,” and that he was instead seeking “glory.”

“I regret not having shot more people,” the shooter told the social worker, who described him as calm and coherent. “The victims are in heaven and I’m living in hell.”

Earlier in the day, prosecutors revealed searches from Bissonnette’s computer that “indicated the Quebec mosque shooter was obsessed with U.S. President Donald Trump, Muslims, Dylann Roof, mass shootings and feminists,” the Gazzette noted. The Canadian National Observer reported that the shooter searched for Trump more than 800 times before the massacre he committed just over a week after the American president’s inauguration

Prosecutors also introduced evidence showing that the shooter checked Trump’s Twitter feed daily and regularly consumed news about the American president.

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.

She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

The real problem wasn’t the racism — it was the Trump taking ‘the Lord’s name in vain’ twice: supporter

Published

on

President Donald Trump was widely condemned after supporters at a campaign rally in West Virginia turned his racist "go back" message into a "Send Her Back" chant against one of a woman of color in Congress.

One Trump supporter in West Virginia also criticized the speech, but not for the racist targeting of Rep. Ilhan Omar.

State Senator Paul Hardesty, a Democrat, wrote to the White House to complain about Trump's use of the word "goddamn."

The letter was republished by the Montgomery-Herald.
