Democratic Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms suggested during a Monday interview on CNN that President Donald Trump was partly responsible for the death of an 8-year-old African-American girl in the city late last week.

Late on Saturday, Secoriea Turner was killed when a car she was riding in was shot up near the Wendy’s where Rayshard Brooks was killed last month after he resisted arrest and fired a taser in the direction of a pursuing officer.

CNN host Brooke Baldwin asked Bottoms how such a tragic incident could occur. “I want to just get right to Secoriea, 8 years of age. You said it over the weekend. She was a baby,” said Baldwin. “How could this happen?”

“I was listening to [Chicago] Mayor [Lori] Lightfoot, she summed it up,” Bottoms said. “We talk about systemic racism and the trauma and anxiety and all these things that are happening in our communities. And it is this convergence.”

“And I hate to use the word a perfect storm, but it’s where we are in this country right now,” Bottoms continued. “And you think about the leadership or the lack thereof that we have coming from the highest office in the land. I think that you are seeing so many emotions play out. And so, too often, it’s playing out in violence in our streets.”

    How dare this incompetent and useless mayor blame Pres. Trump for this innocent child to be murdered. Would it not make more sense to hold the person(s) responsible who did the shooting. Had she laid the hammer down from the beginning, this nightmare would have been controlled at the beginning. Lady, put the blame where it belongs – on you.

    The only persons responsible for the terrorism is Obama for giving one billion illegal dollars to BLM, OFA and LaRaza and OBAMA putting Eric Holder in charge of OFA where he directs subversive anarchists to inflame an entire country.. Holder learned so much setting up the Charlottesville riot.
    There is no mistake that the First Black President, a Black Ex-DOJ administraor directing OFA, a EX-DOJ Director Loretta Lynch sent the money, to a Black BLM, a Black OFA and if anyone say’s anything about illegal donations made…. IT”S RACIST!!!!

    Oh, sure, Keisha, blame it on Trump, you witless excuse for a mayor! Atlanta is YOUR responsibility, and YOUR deflection of YOUR responsibility is typical of the useless Leftist pawn that you are.

    You and all your liberals pals are to blame just as much as if you pulled the trigger yourselves.
