|It was thumbs up when asked about good people on both sides|
When no one laughed, he quickly added, "Look I'm joking right? Everybody knows I'm joking. I was just trying to raise everyone's spirits. Sometimes the President has to stop being presidential and be like the class clown to lighten the mood."
The press corps quickly began asking him about the steps that will be taken to prevent any future shootings using military style rifles on innocent people.
"We are ready to take any steps necessary," he said in his best presidential demeanor.
"Does this mean some kind of ban on automatic weapons?" another reporter shouted out.
"Will someone shut her up!" Trump shouted back. "Always someone in the media pool talking about taking away our second amendment rights. Get her out of here!"
The reporter was roughly carried out of the press room and Trump continued. "Look, we don't know who the shooter was, he may have been confused and shot a lot of good people, but we have no way of telling what was in in heart. I've said it before and I'll say it again, there is good in everyone, there was good on both sides here.."
He was then asked if he really believed that and he smiled and gave a thumbs up.
