Orlando Shooter's father turns up at a Hillary Rally yesterday

MSNBC have reported this, and was seated right behind where Hillary was speaking. He was interviewed afterwards and basically said he supported her.

You just know how Trump will play this, but how will the Clinton Campaign respond ?

My first thoughts is that this is a set up by Mateen's father.

1. I don't even care what Trump will say anymore. He's irrelevant; he won't be president.

 

His father is not the shooter and it's rational that he would want to support a candidate who isn't pushing hate and Islamophobia but also wants to do something about gun control and violence.

2. i thought it was disgusting. i don't blame the campaign or anything

But the father himself is an asshole for showing up like that at any event.

8. Those stage picks are vetted and usually for VIPS and donors.

Someone in the campaign dropped the ball.

7. Bad vetting for the TV stage audience.

He was interviewed and said he is a dem and wished his son had joined the US army and fought ISIS.

9. the problem is he is an anti gay bigot and those were the people his son targeted and killed

Either way why does he need to show his face like that ?

I seriously don't care for his support unless i hear a change of views and apology towards the lgbt community.

13. What?

Fuck him. He's a bigot and he taught his murderous son to hate. How does one apologize for teaching hatred that caused the slaughter of 50 innocent people?

Again, fuck him.

10. He's made anti-gay statements

 

And in the past he claimed he supported the views of the Taliban.

The guy is nuts.

11. It is not a setup by Mateen.

He's a nasty piece of work whose values have nothing to do with the Democratic party

But of course, he supports her, because of Trump's comments about immigration restrictions for Muslims with ideologies such as his.

I will never forgive this man for his attempt to blame his son's murderous rampage on a couple of kissing gay guys. That says it all - it says everything we need to know about him.

Mateen has some degree of political connections to Dems:

You can call that a rightwing source, but it is basically from Mateen's web presence.
