CNN’s Jeff Zeleny couldn’t resist the urge to politicize the shooting in Las Vegas. For some bizarre reason, he pointed out that many of the victims were probably Trump supporters.

WATCH: CNN Reporter Bizarrely Reminds Viewers That Country Music Fans Are ‘Likely Trump Supporters’
CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny appeared to suggest in an interview Monday that many of the victims of Sunday night’s Las Vegas mass shooting were Trump supporters.
Zeleny made the bizarre observation after noting that President Trump’s morning press conference about the situation in Las Vegas was “pitch perfect.” He went on to say that it was worth it, however, to “keep in mind” that there is significant crossover between Trump supporters and country music fans.
“Something else I think to keep in mind, a lot of these country music supporters were likely Trump supporters,” Zeleny said.
“This is something that of course is hitting the tapestry of all Americans, and there are going to be victims from across the country here,” he continued.
It’s not immediately clear what Zeleny meant with his comments — perhaps that Trump was more conscientous of his message, perhaps, knowing that some of his supporters might be among the dead, or that Trump was more attentive to victims because his fans and country music fans are one and the same.
