Endorsements that matter 

You'll remember Seddique Mateen as the father of the terrorist who slaughtered 49 innocent victims in the Orlando nightclub attack.  He's an all-around "swell guy" who hosted an anti-American YouTube talk show and proudly supported the Taliban.

In case there was any doubt about who he'd be backing in the 2016 election, he wants to make sure you know that he's supporting Hillary Clinton - a woman he says "is good for United States."

Why, he even attended her rally in Kissimmee, FL. Those of you who've been to Disneyworld will know Kissimmee as a suburb of Orlando, just a few minutes from the site of his son's horrific rampage.

As WPTV5 reports:

Oh. He wants gun control. Shocker.

As the anchors point out, it's odd that Mateen has such a prominent spot behind Hillary, but odder still is the fact that Mateen doesn't seem to think there's anything weird about his being at the event in the first place.

Mateen is no stranger to politics, having announced his candidacy for President of Afghanistan - roughly a year after the election took place.  So if he thinks Hillary "is good for United States," you know she must be.
