Trump Hotel Shooter Previously Posted Tired Anti-Colin Kaepernick Meme

    The man who barged into the Trump National Doral Resort firing shots previously posted a weak anti-Colin Kaepernick from a conservative outlet.

    According to the Miami Herald, 42-year-old South African man Jonathan Oddi, who was screaming “anti-Trump rhetoric” as he was shooting. Oddi did not injure anyone but was eventually shot and apprehended by the police.

    A man shouting about Donald Trump entered the president’s south Florida golf resort early Friday, draped a flag over a lobby counter and exchanged fire with police before being arrested, police said. https://trib.al/Hkknz7A

    But as the Herald notes, Oddi posted an anti-Colin Kaepernick meme on Instagram from a conservative media outlet about how Kap wasn’t a “hero.” Turning Point USA, which “triggers libs” by wearing diapers and has had a history of racist and corrupt behavior was where Oddi got the meme from.

    Posting this type of meme is seemingly in line with the “culture war” rhetoric that is the substance of Trump’s campaign and his presidency. 

    The Herald said his Instagram postings demonstrate “mixed political leanings” so this might offer a possible explanation.
