Ahead of her interview w/Trump, @IngrahamAngle says this: "In wake of tragic slayings at Pittsburgh synagogue, some on left have labored to blunt the Trump momentum by trying to link him to this lunatic anti-Semitic shooter."

(The shooter was directly inspired by Trump's words)
INGRAHAM: "The very idea that the president would condone or countenance a rabid anti-Semite killing innocent people in prayer is absurd and its offensive. He has a Jewish daughter, a Jewish son-in-law and jewish grandchildren."
TRUMP explains why he didn't cancel political rally after shooting at a synagogue killed 11: "You make [mass shooters] too important if you start canceling... you are doing a rally and rallies are meant to be fun."
After briefing chatting about the mass shooting at a synagogue that his rhetoric inspired, Trump casually uses anti-Semitic "globalist" dogwhistle: "I look at two things, globalists and nationalists. I'm somebody that wants to take care of our country... I'm not a globalist."
Trump pushes back on people who rightfully point out that the synagogue shooter was inspired by his rhetoric: "This horrible human being, this terrible person who did the shooting is was not a Donald Trump fan because he said I was too close to Israel."
Trump dismisses outrage over his attacks on the media as "the enemy of the people" by bizarrely steering the discussion toward complaining about how journalists are too hard on him over his bromance with totalitarian dictator Kim Jong-un.
Trump draws false equivalency between Bernie Sanders having deranged fan & his own encouragement of violence against the media: "Bernie had a fan who shot a good friend of ours, Scalise, & other people. He was a total maniac. Nobody puts his name in the headline, Bernie Sanders."
Trump, who has been complaining about the alleged death of due process, defends calling Andrew Gillum a "thief" for no good reason.

Trump says, "here's a guy who in my opinion is a stone cold thief," offering no evidence.

He also suggests Gillum isn't as smart as DeSantis 🤔
Trump offers a series of racial dogwhistles about people traveling with the caravan: "When you look at that caravan & largely -- very big percentage of men, young, strong. A lot of bad people, a lot of bad people in there, people that are in gangs. We don't want them."
Trump says he plans to build "tent cities" -- concentration camps -- for people traveling with the caravan, where they will be indefinitely detained.

He doesn't rule out using lethal force against them if they cross border illegally.
Trump characterizes the caravan as an "invasion of our country" -- a description he could use to justify using deadly force against people traveling with it.
TRUMP: Democrats should be worried about the African-Americans because they are to lose them.

INGRAHAM: Are you going to do events in the inner cities?

TRUMP: I'm doing them. I already have them scheduled.
Asked about the recent stock market dive, Trump immediately starts deflecting by attacking Obama.

Ingraham predictably does not press him for a more substantive answer.
TRUMP characterizes Mueller probe as "an illegal investigation," claims "a lot of people agree with me."

"I have nothing to do with Russia. Hillary was a lousy candidate and I did a very good job."
INGRAHAM: How's Melania doing?

TRUMP: "She's doing fantastically. Really good. She just got back from Africa and she saw some things that were really eye-opening. And tremendous poverty. Tremendous poverty. So, we're trying to help."
Following Trump, @LindseyGrahamSC defends POTUS by drawing false equivalence between Trump's hateful rhetoric & Bernie having a deranged fan.

"Nobody blamed Bernie Sanders when his supporter shot Steve Scalise... [Trump] didn't send anything through the mail. Not his fault."
