Anderson Cooper just hammered Trump for promoting anti-Muslim hate in wake of New Zealand mosque massacre

Anderson Cooper: We won’t insult the memory of the victims by suggesting they died of an isolated individual acting for incomprehensible reasons, as if he were some human version of a natural disaster.

He was inspired it seems, by a consistent hateful and contagious world view.

Thank you Anderson for saying it exactly the way it is. It is all so very sad, and unless we have a leader who will stand up against this horror it will gain momentum. My thoughts are with the families of those that died and with the people of New Zealand at this very sad time.

– Jacinda Ardern, New Zealand prime minister

“…This is one of New Zealand’s darkest days. Clearly, what has happened here is an extraordinary and unprecedented act of violence. Many of those directly affected by this shooting may be migrants to New Zealand, they may even be refugees here. They have chosen to make New Zealand their home. It is their home. They are us. The person who has perpetrated this violence against us is not. They have no place in New Zealand. There is no place in New Zealand for such extreme and unprecedented acts of violence.”
