Disgusting Behavior From Ohio Democrats

Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley and Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) criticized President Trump for "divisive" talk after his Wednesday visit.

It should be noted, and has been, that the Dayton shooter was a left-wing socialist - whose Twitter account featured language that bashed the president, ICE and supported Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The Dayton Daily News even reported the shooter was an advocate of gun control.

Both Whaley and Brown met the president at the airport and shared words with him, but after Trump departed, the two held a press conference in which they blamed the president for his rhetoric.

Whaley told reporters: "I think a lot of people that own businesses in that district aren’t interested in the president being there. And, you know, a lot of the time his talk can be very divisive, and that’s the last thing we need in Dayton."

Brown added: "I changed my mind about coming. I didn’t want in any way to encourage the president’s racist talk and divisive talk. I came because Mayor Whaley asked me to come."
