Father Of Orlando Terrorist Attends Hillary Rally

The Orlando Sentinel reports:

The Pulse nightclub shooter’s father attended Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s rally in Kissimmee Monday night.

Cameras captured Seddique Mateen, Omar Mateen’s father, standing in the crowd. He later told a reporter for WPTV, a Palm Beach-based NBC affiliate, that he wanted to attend the rally as a member of the public and a Clinton supporter. “Why should they be surprised? I love the United States, and I’ve been living here a long time,” Mateen said.

The Clinton campaign said that the rally was a 3,000-person, open-door event for the public. “This individual wasn’t invited as a guest and the campaign was unaware of his attendance until after the event,” the campaign said.

Mateen told the WPTV reporter he wishes his son had “joined the Army and fought ISIS. That would be much better,” he said. Clinton met with victims’ family and friends during a visit to Orlando in July. In her speech Monday night, Clinton expressed support for the survivors of the attack and the loved ones of the 49 people who were killed.

As you’d expect, Teabagistan is going nuts.
