Oh for ####'s sake. Le Pen couldn't have asked for better timing.

Looks like the dead suspect was known to intelligence services as well and the shooting comes two days after two Islamic State terror suspects were arrested with weapons and bomb making materials in their flat.

It's moronic because - "We have to be strong and we have to be vigilant, and I've been saying it for a long time" - this part is just self-aggrandizing BS coming from the president of the US after a tragedy.

Not when it comes to the moron in chief. I will point out his moronic ways, whenever possible.

What does being strong and vigilant entail?

Also terrorism deaths are relatively low historically right now.

The timing couldn't be better for Le Pen, and the government is now suggesting that they postpone the election, which will play into her hands as well.

Pretty tragic event, Paris seems to be the epicenter of these types of attacks.

I don't get it. Didn't he just blow up a whole bunch of people somewhere, under the guise of making sure these types of tragic events don't continue to happen?

That there isn't a wide-held belief among non-combatants that this is an honourable fight against a deserving foe.

Hey guys, a terrorist attack just happened, and innocent people died, but what's more important is that everyone knows how much I hate Trump.
