Ann Coulter says Trump clearly wasn’t to blame for Family Dollar shooting — because the perp was Black

On Friday, a security guard at a Family Dollar store in Flint, Michigan was fatally shot after telling a customer to wear a protective face mask.

In response to bereaved Parkland father Fred Guttenberg demanding President Donald Trump take responsibility for having cheered on the armed lockdown protesters in Michigan, and to consider whether that endorsement had any role in the violence, right-wing author Ann Coulter replied on Twitter that Trump couldn't possibly have been the cause of the shooting.

Her evidence? The shooter was Black.

Commenters on social media immediately pounced on Coulter.
