Brooke Baldwin is very concerned that President Trump referred to Parkland mass murderer as a ‘sicko’

Seventeen innocent lives were brutally snuffed out at a Florida school and President Trump’s reference to the killer as a “sicko” is what’s bothering the folks at CNN.

According to “experts” consulted by CNN, the president’s language on the mental health of the 19-year-old who opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week could actually be harmful.

CNN’s Brooke Baldwin was worried about “how people suffering from mental illness in this country feel” in light of Trump’s remark.

No need to wonder how the families of the victims feel, as long as the shooter is not offended.

In a tweet on Thursday, Trump described a person who would come to a school with “bad intentions” as a “savage sicko.”

But, in the eyes of CNN, the fact that most people would agree with the president is not the point.

The shooter, Nikolas Cruz, struggled with depression, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism, according to a 2016 Florida Department of Children and Families report. But having a mental health diagnosis does not mean he would become violent, many experts say. And although Trump has said he wants to focus on mental health to stop school shootings, calling Cruz a “sicko” doesn’t help, those experts claim.

 

“Hearing language like this is a punch to the gut, particularly if we have a goal as a nation to increase access to mental health care. This is about the worst thing you can do,” Ron Honberg, from the National Alliance on Mental Illness, said.

“When it comes to mental health, language really matters. This is not about being politically correct. It’s about wanting to do everything we can to encourage people to get health treatment that works,” he added.

Apparently, protecting the feelings of the cold-blooded killer is important while bashing law-abiding gun owners by the liberal media is acceptable because that’s who the real “monsters” must be.

This is CNN’s Trump Derangement Syndrome gone wild.

But taking their rhetoric to an even more absurd level, the network turned to another “expert” who actually found a way to link Trump’s comment to racism.

“How helpful is calling a black person the n-word? Not only is it disrespectful, it fans racism,” Pat Corrigan, a psychology professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology said, according to CNN.

“Using such language when it comes to people with mental illness is the height of disrespect and the height of ignorance, as it reduces some hugely complex person down to a diagnosis, Corrigan said, noting that Trump is just wrong to imply anyone with a mental illness diagnosis is more prone to violent behavior.

Nikolas Cruz, the suspected Florida school shooter, allegedly had a record violent and destructive behavior and was reported to police multiple times over the past few years.  NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch confronted Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel about law enforcement’s failure to follow up on the red flags in Cruz’s past during a CNN town hall on Wednesday.

CNN’s hatred for Trump continues to be on display in these moments when they show they would rather side with a killer than accept something the president said or did. Social media called out the hypocrisy – again – as Twitter users blasted Baldwin and the network for its bias and double standards.
