LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): But we have to keep vigilant about that, too. The types of people who are such loners that their lives are secret online. And you don't -- I mean, reading these neighbors' comments, they're just stunned that this guy is the guy who killed all these people. No indication. Isn't that- when you really start thinking about that, how big the online world is, never ends, and how do you stop something like this? I guess you could have no guns in the United States, would he have done something else? We'll never know. But that's just not realistic.

The fact that we have individuals on television who are trying to tag Donald Trump with this. I mean, I've heard a lot of blaming of this president for things. But calling our president, or implying that our president is anti-Semitic, given what he has done for the people of Israel, given his own family, given his relationship with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu. It is ridiculous. Now, could the president tone down some of his rhetoric? Yeah, of course he could, we all could, I can do better, we all can do better. But do not do that at a time like this, do not go down that road of blaming a political figure for the act of an evil madman.
