Ivanka tries to shift focus from mass shootings via twitter

First daughter Ivanka Trump fired off a pair of tweets about Chicago, asking the nation not to ignore ’inner city’ violence as the nation continued to process horrific mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton. The Chicago spate of shootings featured in her father’s 2016 presidential campaign. She also slammed the media which critics said is a tactic to divert from mass shootings.

Focus on her errors and not the violence that plagues places like Chicago. Good job on the deflection.

So she was incorrect, doesn't change the fact that Chicago is a cesspool of violence that no amount of gun control can fix. Democrats really need to take a good hard look at Chicago and determine if their policies are really what's best for the nation.

"The mayor noted that the shooting in question wasn't in a playground, but in a park. That shooting lead to multiple injuries but not to the seven dead that Ivanka cited, the Chicago Sun-Times reported." Nothing to see here folks, just a normal weekend activity the whole family can enjoy in Chicago!

So what's the problem? Every thing the media reports contains errors, misinformation and out right lies.

Quote: 'As we grieve over the evil mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, let us not overlook that Chicago experienced its deadliest weekend of the year, With 7 dead and 52 wounded near a playground in the Windy City- and little national outrage or media coverage- we mustn't become numb to the violence faced by inner city communities every day' Facts: 1: she is correct that it was the deadliest weekend so far this year in Chicago 2: her total of 59 casualties is over by 4; so 55 actual casualties instead of 59 - not a big deal and could have been caused by errors in whatever source she was using at the time 3: she is completely correct in the lack of outrage over the Chicago weekend violence. A quick glance at the Lefty comments here confirms that they have no outrage about the violence either, and only disdain for Ivanka's attempt to bring attention to human suffering 4: "7 dead and 52 wounded near a playground" - there was a shooting near a playground, and there were 7 injured. This reads to me like her post just had a missing comma or something, not a big deal

not shifting focus more like calling one place more dangerous than another.
