Some members of the left wing news media seemed almost giddy over the attempted assassination of Republican lawmakers by a Bernie Sanders supporter. Some sent out tweets that seemed to find humor in the fact that Congressman Steve Scalise was in the hospital in critical condition after being shot.
However, Jesse Benn, an alleged journalist for the far left Huffington Post took everything a step further. He not only failed to condemn the shooting, but advised future shooters to make more organized and therefore more effective attacks on conservatives and Trump supporters. This followed the Post pulling another article from its website that directly called for the assassination of President Trump.
