Social media is ablaze after CNN’s Wolf Blitzer suggested that the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain is a “copycat” of last weekend’s attack in Charlottesville, Virginia.
As Blitzer was covering the Barcelona terror attack, he interviewed Chief National Security correspondent Jim Sciutto by phone.
Scuitto said, “In light of the uproar over the last several days, five days apart, you have white supremacists in Charlottesville use a vehicle to kill, and here you have — attackers at least following the modus operandi of terrorists using vehicles, apparently to kill as well. And it’s that — those shared tactics that should be alarming.”
Blitzer replied, “Yeah, and there will be questions about copycats. There will be questions if what happened in Barcelona, was at all, at all, a copycat version of what happened in Charlottesville, Virginia. Even though they may be different characters, different political ambitions, they used the same killing device – a vehicle going at high speed into a group, a large group of pedestrians.”
Twitter is flooded with outrage, all agreeing Blitzer’s comments explain exactly why President Trump calls CNN “fake news.”

Charlottesville caused Barcelona, according to Wolf Blitzer, so there’s that. How do these people look themselves in the mirror?
