Ah... doubling down. Digging deeper. Interesting strategy. Lets see how it works out for you.
"Has Trump sent thousands of firearms illegally to Mexico, killing hundreds of Mexican citizens and even some Americans? Obama did."
Doc... that is what you said. That Obama is responsible for "killing hundreds of Mexican citizens and even some Americans" by "[sending] thousands of firearms illegally to Mexico". So, we can agree that Obama did not pull the trigger, or order the murders, right? So, how is he responsible for these deaths? Because an "Obama gun" killed them. Your statement is saying that GUNS KILL PEOPLE. Even further, you are saying that these people would not have been killed if they had not had access to these guns.
So, what is the alternative? What, in your mind, would have made Obama not responsible for the guns "killing"? You imply that he should have restricted access to said guns by being able to track these "dangerous guns" and by cooperating with the Mexican government so that THEY could restrict access (by recovering them). So, if you want to relate that to school shootings, Obama is like the gun manufacturers. According to you he did not do his due diligence in ensuring that these guns would not fall into the hands of people who might use them irresponsibly.
Yes... the program could have been run better. But, all those things you said are just to distract from your main point. And that is that Obama is responsible for deaths THROUGH the guns that were used in the killing. If you truly believed that "Guns don't kill people", then there is no way Obama could be responsible for the killings due to his connection with the guns.
The interesting thing about Republicans, is the are not very empathetic. That makes it hard for them to independently predict the actions of people not like them. Hence, if a Republican accuses you of doing something, it is probably because THEY would have done it if they were in your place.
They talk about Trump derangement syndrome. Ha. They are just projecting their 8 years of Obama Derangement Syndrome. This is a perfect example. Second Amendment rights are something that are supposed to be near and dear to Republicans, but they completely jettisoned that ideology at the drop of a hat for the chance of attacking Obama. And speaking of jettisoning ideology and morals... you then elected Trump. Whatever happened to sanctity of marriage??? You elected someone as the leader of your party, and the leader of the country, who liked marriage so much he decided he wanted to do it THREE times. And has such respect for the "sanctity" that he has cheated on ALL THREE of his wives. And he cheated on the last one with MULTIPLE porn stars while she was less than a year postpartum.
Just think back to all the things that Trump accused Democrats of on the campaign. Are there ANY that he has not done himself?
Good job Republicans... You built that.
