Apparently no one has told this professor that the shooter was a Bernie supporter and MSNBC fan. Actually, he admits that the shooter was left wing but still blames Trump.

Prof blames ‘Trump and trumpism’ for Scalise shooting
A Central Connecticut State University professor is blaming the politically-motivated shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise on President Trump and “trumpism.”
“Donald Trump is corrupt, dishonest, and stupid. Intellectually feeble and mentally unstable people drawn to political extremism have and will be inspired or driven by Trump and trumpism to say and do horrible things,” associate professor of political science Jerold Duquette wrote in a blog post Thursday. “Yesterday, a left wing extremist was driven by Trump and trumpism to try to kill people.”
Duquette also argues that Trump’s nomination for president by the Republican Party represented a surrender “of the GOP’s intellectual, ethical, and moral standards” and a victory for “incivility, anti-intellectualism, and extremism,” asserting that “with the help of left wing extremists (and apparently the Russians), that victory was magnified in the 2016 general election, giving us the most extreme and uncivilized national political leadership we have ever had.”
The professor claims that the Republican leadership is “going through the motions” with its condemnations of the Wednesday shooting, arguing that “they lack the moral and intellectual authority to make this condemnation useful.”
Moreover, he complains that “bloviating profiteers in the rightwing media” are further weakening the “credibility” of conservatives by “using this incident to fuel the right wing alternate reality propaganda machine.”
