I spent the last 90 minutes reading Facebook, and my feed has been absolutely overwhelmed with Orlando-related posts, be they grieving, discussing homophobia, calling for gun control, or reacting to reactions. I’ve never seen such a skewed set of posts. Some of it is surely Facebook catering to what it knows are my interests, but it seems like the vast majority of my friends and the pages that I follow can talk of nothing else. Even Trump/Clinton/Sanders articles, except as they pertain to this, have temporarily disappeared.
So far, I have seen nothing useful from Republican politicians regarding gun control or homophobia.
