  • Do video games mental illness drive US massacres

Fox's Pete Hegseth mentions the El Paso shooter's "hit list against girls in his school" not as a red flag of violent misogyny, but of "mental illness".

Later on Monday, President Trump was once again speaking about the shootings in a press conference from the White House.

Donald Trump has blamed mental illness for the mass shootings in Texas and OH that left 29 people dead this weekend.

Another major mental health organization, the American Psychological Association, issued a similar statement on Sunday.

A 2015 study from researchers Dr. Jonathan Meltz and Dr. Kenneth MacLeish of Vanderbilt University, however, found that "less than 3% to 5% of U.S. crimes involve people with mental illness".

On the morning show frequently watched by President Trump, the hosts ran through "warning signs" that the shooter in Dayton, Ohio exhibited, with Ainsley Earhardt citing his suspected Twitter page and saying that the shooter "praised Satan".

A 2015 study from researchers Dr. Jonathan Meltz and Dr. Kenneth MacLeish of Vanderbilt University found that "less than 3% to 5% of United States crimes involve people with mental illness, and the percentages of crimes that involve guns are lower than the national average for persons not diagnosed with mental illness".
