Hillary Clinton found herself in hot water this week when the father of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen, who killed 49 people at the nightclub Pulse on June 12, was spotted at a rally of hers in Florida.
According to Daily Mail, Seddique Mateen was spotted at Clinton’s speech on Monday at the Osceola Heritage Park, a 30 minute drive from the spot where his son committed the worst mass murder in U.S. history. Mateen, a pro-Taliban political activist, said afterwards that he attended the event because he had been “invited.”
“Hillary Clinton is good for United States versus Donald Trump, who has no solutions,” Mateen told WPTV. “I wished that my son joined the Army and fought ISIS. That would be much better.”
He was then asked if he thought the other people in the crowd would be surprised if they knew he was at the event.
“Why should they be surprised? I love the United States, and I’ve been living here a long time,” Mateen said.
