“This is my nominee for the first ISIS suicide bombing of a Trump property,” Nance tweeted, in response to a picture of Trump’s tower building in Istanbul.
Nance later deleted the tweet, but the internet doesn’t forget:
The fact that any ‘counter terror’ analyst would advocate terrorist attacks, whether tongue in cheek or not, is shocking enough, but to suggest that a major building in a European capital city where thousands of people work should be attacked is appalling.
Nance has not issued a retraction, an apology, or any clarification whatsoever.
This is yet another example of MSNBC’s Trump derangement syndrome in action. Nance is literally saying he supports ISIS terrorists over the US President.
It is not the first time Nance has made comments linking Trump to ISIS.
During the election run up, Nance claimed that Trump was the “ISIS candidate,” and that the candidate’s his rhetoric was strengthening the terrorist group by ‘drawing recruits to them’.
Nance also has a history of denying that ISIS inspired terrorist attacks have anything to do with Islam.
When an extremist plowed a truck into innocent people in in Nice, France, last year, after reading ISIS materials advocating such forms of attack, Nance suggested the driver was just mentally unstable, rather than following any ideology.
Nance described the attack as the driver taking “a moment to challenge society in a horrific way,” adding “We call them EDPs. Extremely disturbed persons, or emotionally disturbed persons.”
Nance also described the attack at the gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida as a “psycho-sexual problem” and the San Bernardino mass shooting as “a hybrid act of terrorism/workplace violence.”
