Eli Stokols, a Wall Street Journal reporter and MSNBC contributor, is upset that President Trump called for ISIS-loving terrorist Sayfullo Saipov to get the death penalty, but did not demand the same penalty for the Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock.
Trump tweeted: “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!”
The astute Stokols complained to MSNBC host Nicole Wallace: “The unifying thread is sort of the broad politics of Donald Trump, the ethno-centric nationalism. He did not react this way when a white person shot dozens of people in Las Vegas…we need to give this guy the death penalty.”
Trump didn’t call for the death penalty for Paddock because Paddock had already completed executing the death penalty on himself, by committing suicide as police closed in on his hotel room, and it is impossible to effectively impose the death penalty on someone who is already dead. MSNBC’s Wallace was too biased or polite to point this fact out to Stokols.
Look for Stokols to boldly call for the death penalty to be imposed on the following soon:
*Generalissimo Francisco Franco
*Osama bin Laden
*Lee Harvey Oswald
*Bonnie & Clyde
