LAS VEGAS, Nevada (The Adobo Chronicles®) – Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry characterized the recent shooting in Charleston as an “accident” during an interview on Friday, accusing President Obama of using the massacre, which claimed nine lives, as a pretext for pushing a gun control agenda.
“This is the MO of this administration anytime there is an accident like this,” Perry said during an appearance on Newsmax TV. The former Texas governor said the president “doesn’t like guns,” so “he uses every opportunity” to tighten restrictions on gun ownership.
Another Republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, described the U.S. involvement in the Iraq war as an accident, saying that former President George W. Bush and his Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld accidentally believed that Saddam Hussein was concealing weapons of mass destruction.
It seems that Republicans have found the perfect excuse for everything that’s wrong with America and it’s a recurring theme that we will see throughout the presidential campaign season between now and the 2016 elections.
Senator Rand Paul is reportedly preparing a major speech this weekend in which he will describe the election of Barack Obama as an accident — twice over.
