David Pakman triples down with video excusing himself from victim-blaming Covenant School
As Twitchy reported here and here, progressive talk show host David Pakman tweeted, and then deleted, this utterly vile and tone-deaf tweet suggesting that Covenant school students were not “praying enough, or correctly”:

He went on to make an explainer video about what he really meant, and it’s…well, see for yourself:
Earlier today, I deleted a tweet about the Nashville shooting. I recorded a video about this:https://t.co/xBTa4pS65D

Nobody is angrier at your grossly insensitive tweet than they are about the senseless slaughter of innocents, David. They’re angry that you took this opportunity to make a terrible statement about a grieving community that just suffered a tremendous loss through no fault of their own.
“Anyone who knows me knows that I would never blame the victims of a mass shooting for that mass shooting” is a great line, except for the part where that’s exactly what he did with his tweet. When people send thoughts and prayers after a tragedy, it’s for comfort and hope for those affected by it.
Way to back peddle there! You blamed Christians for not praying enough or in the right way. The only reason you attempted to white wash what you said is because it pissed off a ton of people. Have the day that you deserve. ✌️ pic.twitter.com/OqEpPmeGpZ

Dude you dunked on the bodies of dead children. Be a man and take the L.
But you can’t just apologize and move on, instead trying to grift off it. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.

You should just apologize, David.

That would be the right thing to do but we’re not holding our breath over here.
You should delete this video too.
