One thing that has been proven simply by the fact that there are MILLIONS OF GAMERS ON EARTH WHO HAVE NEVER HAD AN URGE TO GO ON A MASS KILLING, yet lobbyists and other conservatives need to blame something other than their own lax rules and apathetic attitude towards gun violence and blame the violence on, of all things, video games.
It LITERALLY shows you how out of touch our current president is, as they have been going after video games since the days of Columbine and have NEVER PROVEN AN ASSOCIATION WHATSOEVER.
His exact quotes reflect a man clearly who has no idea what is going on around him or how to control it:
“We have to look at the internet because a lot of bad things are happening to young kids and young minds and their minds are being formed,” Mr. Trump said, “and we have to do something about maybe what they’re seeing and how they’re seeing it. And also video games. I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts.”
Yeah, the internet is great place to look, Donald. Oh wait, no it isn’t, it is full of fake news. Let’s take a moment to point out how Trump works using his OWN WORDS:
“I’m hearing more and more people say the level of violence on video games is really shaping young people’s thoughts.”
“I’m hearing…”. WHAT? YOU yourself have no idea or opinion? YOU have HEARD? Like, on the internet or are there hushed whispers around the White House that video games cause violence. You are hearing, yet you name no source and are bringing up and 20 year old argument blaming gaming?
I know I am supposed to remain unbiased, but this man is more out of touch than my grandfather and my grandfather has been dead for 18 years. I wish I was kidding. This video from FOUR YEARS AGO explain the debate perfectly:
This is simply another perfect example of the fact that we have an out of touch man running our country into the ground and then pointing his fingers everywhere except the one place his finger should be pointed.
