“Hillary Clinton is good for United States versus Donald Trump, who has no solutions.” — Seddique Mateen, father of the Pulse Nightclub shooter

The Muslim monster who murdered 49 people and hurt 53 more is back in the news, thanks to his father who is a vocal and proud Hillary Clinton supporter.

Seddique Mateen was in the crowd at a recent Hillary Clinton campaign event in Kissimmee, Florida and he had prime real estate from which to enjoy her speech. Mateen was given a place of honor for the TV cameras as he sat just over the presidential candidate’s soldier with a big ol’ grin on his face.

Afterwards a local news outlets caught up with the father of the Pulse Nightclub shooter and wondered what he was doing at the speech and if he felt uncomfortable when Mrs. Clinton spoke about the nightclub shooting.

On Clinton’s comments on the Pulse shooting: “We’ve been cooperating with the federal government, and that’s about it. Thank you.”

On why he was at the Clinton campaign event: “Hillary Clinton is good for United States versus Donald Trump, who has no solutions.”

On why he chose to attend an event so close to the place where his son committed such a heinous crime: “I spoke a lot about that and wish that my son joined the Army and fought ISIS. That would be much better.”


Team Clinton wants everyone to know that Mr. Mateen was not invited or expected at the campaign event.


So, yes, you just heard the father of a Muslim terrorist, and a man who has himself supported terrorists and Islamic extremism in the past, endorse Hillary Clinton.

The National Review’s take on this:

Yes, that father:

Florida corporations created by [the shooter’s father] Seddique Mateen, the Provisional Government of Afghanistan Corp. and The Durand Jirga Inc., are related to that border dispute. And Seddique Mateen announced his candidacy for president of Afghanistan in 2015, one of several YouTube videos posted by Mateen related to the issue. A Washington Post translation of one video has the elder Mateen praising the Taliban: “Our brothers in Waziristan, our warrior brothers in (the) Taliban movement and national Afghan Taliban are rising up,” he said.

The obvious rejoinder:  “She says she’ll keep the pro-Taliban folks who are close to terrorists out of our country… but she can’t even keep them out of her own rallies.

Maybe she should try building a wall.”

Donald Trump might be the luckiest son-of-a-gun to ever run for president. If he can’t make some noise over this and make up five points quick, he should just close up shop… 

That about sums it up.
