The Pulse nightclub massacre, committed by Omar Mateen, happened 7 months ago. Mateen’s wife disappeared soon after, and nobody seemed to know or care where she went. Why would they? There was no way to blame the NRA or the Republican Party.

Well, the feds finally picked her up anyway. Pamela Brown, CNN:

Authorities have arrested the wife of Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen in connection with their investigation into the June mass shooting, FBI spokesman Prentice Danner said…

[Noor] Salman, who married Mateen in 2011, came under increasing scrutiny as authorities investigated Mateen, who killed 49 people and injured more than 50 others when he opened fire at the gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.

Well, that was quick. It was only the deadliest mass shooting in American history, guys.

It seems unlikely that Salman will be able to clarify Mateen’s motive, though. We already know his motive: He killed all those people because they were gay.

His religious beliefs, whatever they may have been, had nothing to do with it. After all, plenty of Christians hate gay people too. And every Muslim in the world, other than Omar Mateen, didn’t do it. Please stop being racist.
