Trump Just Said Something Unbelievably Wrong to the Emperor of Japan

n Sunday, a gunman in black tactical gear massacred 26 and wounded 20 at the First Baptist Church of Sutherland Springs, Texas. It was the second mass shooting in just 35 days that ranked as one of the most lethal in recent history.

President Donald Trump, who has been on the Japan stop of his grand Asia tour this week, took time between sampling the local food and indulging in a minor manufactured scandal over some very expensive fish to comment on the tragedy.

It was "terrible incident," Trump said in conversation with Japanese Emperor Akihito. It could "happen anywhere."
