Trump Says Las Vegas Shooters Brain Was Wired Up Extremely Badly: Autopsy Literally Just Showed This Wasn’t True

This weekend an autopsy of Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter, revealed that he had no brain abnormalities. Apparently, President Trump did not get this memo as he told reporters that Paddock had an “extremely bad brain.” The comment is not only untrue, but could help to extenuate already dangerous stereotypes about those with mental health issues. "I guess a lot of people think they understand what happened, but he was a demented, sick individual,” Trump told reporters at a cabinet meeting at the White House this Monday, Business Insider reported.
