While Barnicle admitted that Trump “didn’t pull the trigger” in Atlanta, he claimed that the former president was still “responsible” for the shooting because of his “language” and “behavior”.
“I’m not a huge fan of living in the past,” he began before doing just that. “I believe in moving forward. Keep that line moving, move on to the future, but we opened this segment with a clip from the former president.
“Now Donald Trump hasn’t pulled the trigger in Atlanta, but Donald Trump was undoubtedly responsible for the anger and fear and suspicion that is so high in this country – much more than ever in the past,” Barnicle continued .
“And he is not to blame for a history of racial struggles in this country, but he is certainly responsible for the fact that he has compounded it through his inaction and cowardice in fighting,” he added. “We are now talking about rigged elections. We’re still talking about January 6th. “
“All of this is the gift that is given over and over again, given to us by a man who should never be president,” he concluded. “And the stain of his presidency is still there today, and I fear how long it will take. I mean the job Joe Biden has is enormous enough, but dealing with the lower abdomen of all of these causes only adds to the difficulty in the presidency. “
