On Wednesday morning, a 15-year-old male opened fire at his high school in Kentucky, resulting in the deaths of two people while injuring others. While story made headlines on various news outlets, Donald Trump remained silent.

It appeared like another peaceful day at Marshall County High School in Benton, Kentucky, but that all changed when a 15-year-old male took out his handgun and opened fire. The results left two people, one 15-year-old girl and one 15-year-old boy, dead, with others being reported as injured. The suspect was eventually captured and taken into custody as the small Western Kentucky town was rocked to their core.

As expected, Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin held a press conference to brief the state about what took place, while offering his condolences to the family and friends of those killed and injured. As reported by The Hill on January 24, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke to Bevin before sending out his own tweet offering his condolences. Despite this, Donald Trump has yet to make a public comment on the shooting, much to the chagrin of Joe Scarborough who elaborated further during the January 24 edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC.

While speaking with network contributor Willie Geist, "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough ripped into Donald Trump for ignoring the Kentucky school shooting while still spending time tweeting about the FBI.

"Too many Republicans and especially Donald Trump remain silent when this happens," Scarborough said.

"Americans want to hear from their president.

They want to be told everything will be OK. Especially down in Kentucky," Joe Scarborough said. "They actually got words of condolence from the Canadian Prime Minister before the President of the United States because the President of the United States was too busy tweeting out a lie that there were 50,000 texts between 'lovers' at the FBI, a false and misleading tweet," he added.

"Why is the President of the United States doing that instead of focusing on his job?" he wondered. As of press time, the commander in chief has still not given his personal thoughts on the shooting in question.

As Donald Trump continues to stay mum on the most recent school shooting, he's directed his focus on the FBI and the current Russian investigation. With 2018 only a month old, only time will tell how the rest of his presidency plays out, though his current approval rating is still below 40 percent with the American people.
