State Senator Apologizes for Trump Assassination Photos at Fundraiser

Here's a professional tip to anyone trying to get into politics: don't feature mock assassination photos of the President at your fundraisers.

Fox News reports:

A Democratic state senator from Illinois came under fire over the weekend after pictures were posted online showing his supporters at a fundraising event performing a mock assassination on President Trump.
“The tolerant left,” wrote a Facebook user in response to the incident.
Photos posted by a woman who witnessed the mock assassination on Friday night show supporters of Sen. Martin Sandoval, who represents Illinois’ 11th District — including parts of Chicago — acting out in front of guests, according to WCIA.
One of them can be seen pointing a fake machine gun at a man wearing a Trump mask and Mexican costume. The individual appears to simulate being shot — grabbing his chest and leaning back.
In another photo, Sandoval can bee seen standing next to the person holding the gun.
“Why is this ok?” a Facebook user asked. “I am sickened.”
The pictures have sparked outrage on both sides of the aisle, with Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker blasting them in a statement Saturday night.
