Saturday morning brought what is being deemed the worst crime against Jews in American history, and with it, the deaths of 11 people who were doing nothing but enjoying Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath. A disgusting and vile white man took the lives of these innocent people for no other reason than they were Jewish. He even shouted anti-semitic sentiments during the massacre, which is the reason the tragedy was labeled a hate crime so quickly.

Since the shooting, President Trump has released multiple messages, two tweets, and even a quick on-camera interview before boarding Air Force One headed for the Future Farmers Of America conference. During that one, Trump essentially blamed the Jews for their own death, saying that, had they been properly armed, maybe no one would have died.

Now, Former President Barack Obama has spoken out in the nation’s time of need, and of course, picked up Trump’s slack. Obama just said this via his Twitter page:

“We grieve for the Americans murdered in Pittsburgh. All of us have to fight the rise of anti-Semitism and hateful rhetoric against those who look, love, or pray differently. And we have to stop making it so easy for those who want to harm the innocent to get their hands on a gun.”

The responses to Obama’s tweet were just what you’d expect in Trump’s America. Complete division. Check out the best responses below via screenshot:
