In the wake of the high school massacre that left 17 people dead in Parkland, Florida, one Republican Congresswoman said most mass shooters are Democrats — without substantiating her claim.
In a recorded interview posted to YouTube Monday, a visibly irritated Tenney was asked about her comments on Democrats and mass shootings. She described the question as “fake news,” and stormed off.
The Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney of New York, first shared these comments in February while speaking on WGDJ radio. Tenney said: “It’s interesting that so many of these people that commit the mass murders end up being Democrats. But the media doesn’t talk about that.”

“It’s fake news! I answered your question every which way, it is fake news. Bye. Done. It’s ridiculous.” https://t.co/k52X5SHFQT
