A comedian has hit the nail on the head with a video skewering the reasoning behind Donald Trump’s criticism of video games in the aftermath of the recent shootings in the United States.

In response to the senseless violence in America, the President opted to blame the events on poor mental health and video games.

Over the years, as opposed to blaming guns, those in power have chosen to claim the real issue is rock music, horror comics, raves, video nasties, the internet and computer games. The latter is clearly still a popular option when wanting to obfuscate.

The absurdity of such a tactic is perfectly illustrated in this video by Stewart Reynolds, known online as Brittlestar.
