In the wake of this weekend’s horrendous mass shooting, as authorities were still identifying bodies and cleaning the blood of 49 killed and 53 wounded at Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, “congrats” were in order to Donald Trump, according to Donald Trump.

“Appreciate the congrats for being right on radical Islamic terrorism,” the likely GOP nominee tweeted, less than 12 hours after the massacre ended. He then reiterated his call for a “ban” on Muslim immigrants, even though the suspect was the New York-born son of an immigrant — like Donald Trump.

Meanwhile, Trump will be giving a speech on terrorism today — in which he will presumably congratulate himself for accurately predicting that today would be Monday.
