THIS is why no one respects the liberal mainstream media!
Wall Street Journal reporter, Eli Stokols, slammed President Trump for suggesting that the New York City bike path terrorist should receive the death penalty.
Stokols’ condemnation of the president centered around the fact that President Trump did not demand the death penalty for Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas mass murderer, who is already dead. He was attempting to paint President Trump as a racist who would condemn a Muslim to death but not a “white person.”
Piling on, GQ magazine likewise slammed President Trump for not condemning a dead man to the death penalty, later realizing their stupidity and apologizing.
Stokols (video below): The unifying thread is the sort of broader politics of Donald Trump, the ethnocentric nationalism. He did not react this way when a white person shot dozens of people in Las Vegas. He did not come and say, ‘Well, we need to do an immediate policy change. We need to give this guy the death penalty.’

Seriously, folks, you cannot make this stuff up!
NYC terrorist was happy as he asked to hang ISIS flag in his hospital room. He killed 8 people, badly injured 12. SHOULD GET DEATH PENALTY!

Inspired by Stokols’ stupidity, GQ piled on, with a subsequent retraction….
“An earlier version of this article used a headline noting that Trump had publicly called for the death penalty in the New York attack, but not the Las Vegas shooting in particular. That discrepancy is probably related to the fact that the Las Vegas shooter is dead.”
