Judge Jeanine Pirro's racist rhetoric caught up to her in a recent Washington Journal appearance on C-SPAN when a man from Texas—who at first appeared to be a supporter of President Donald Trump—ended up taking her, Trump, and the Republican party to task for their anti-immigrant rhetoric and their utter hostility toward Latinx people in general.

The man—who did not give his name—skewered Pirro for her "anti-people with brown skin" rhetoric. Pirro only grimaced as he told her that stances like hers motivated the racist who murdered 22 people in El Paso last month to stop the "Hispanic invasion of Texas."

After two horrific shootings in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio killed 31 people earlier this month, President Donald Trump visited the impacted cities as well as some of the medical facilities caring for the injured.

Trump wouldn't allow press to enter the hospitals because the visit was "not a photo-op" (it was), so a lot of what happened during the visit was left to Trump's word, however unreliable.

When President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas on Wednesday, the press was told to stay behind on Air Force One because the trip was all about the victims, not a photo op. Since then, slickly produced videos complete with rousing soundtracks and many photos of the POTUS and FLOTUS all taken by official Trump photographers have been shared by the President, his administration, the White House account and FLOTUS to the outrage of many.

One of the photos from El Paso is drawing particular ire.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump visited the cities of Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas. The two cities saw devastating mass shooting attacks over the weekend while President Trump was out of Washington DC at his New Jersey golf resort.

The press corps that travels with the President on Air Force One was told—first in Dayton then again in El Paso—there was no reason for them to leave the plane as the visits were to be completely about the victims and not a photo op for the POTUS and FLOTUS. But shortly after each visit, professional photos and video taken, edited and produced with accompanying music were posted to Twitter by Trump, the White House Twitter account and members of the Trump administration, one of whom described the visit to victims of gun violence as the President being treated "like a rock star."

The city of El Paso, Texas is in mourning after a shooter opened fire at a local shopping center, killing 22 people. The shooter published a manifesto shortly before the attack, claiming his actions were in response to the "Hispanic invasion of Texas."

President Donald Trump is currently in El Paso to meet with victims and law enforcement, but the community remains divided over whether his visit will be constructive, considering the shooter parroted much of the rhetoric Trump uses at his rallies.

The weekend saw more mass shootings in the United States with at least one linked to White nationalism. Now it appears the Archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, Texas has joined a chorus of critics of President Donald Trump and the White nationalist talking  points he used on Twitter and during his MAGA rallies.

A Twitter account identified as belonging to Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller posted condemnation of the President's racist rhetoric, but the tweets were subsequently deleted. However not before screenshots were captured.

Americans across the country were horrified on Sunday at two mass shootings 13 hours apart in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio. They were the 249th and 250th mass shootings in the United States in 216 days.

The tone at Audi Field in Washington, D.C., however, was jovial as Philadelphia Union soccer team captain Alejandro Bedoya scored a goal against home team D.C. United.
