This is What's Trending Today...

#SanBernardino

Social media remained intensely focused on yesterday's shootings in San Bernardino, California. Fourteen people died and 21 more were injured. It marked the deadliest mass shooting in three years in the United States.

On Twitter the hashtag #SanBernardino reflected the divide in America on gun laws. News reports Thursday said that all four guns used by the two shooters were purchased legally.

That hashtag also contained thousands of messages asking for prayers for the victims. Some of those messages came from conservative U.S. politicians who support gun rights.

The New York Daily News ran a controversial cover Thursday morning. It read "God Isn't Fixing This." It implied that the politicians sending prayers on social media need to do more than pray to prevent mass shootings.

​The cover sparked intense debate on social media.

Loretta Lynch and FIFA

U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch trended worldwide on Twitter Thursday, following the announcement that 16 other FIFA members were being charged with corruption.

Among them include the president of the South American confederation, the head of FIFA's North and Central American and Caribbean governing body, and a former Brazilian FIFA federation head.

Lynch spoke to the media Thursday about the latest charges. Quotes from her speech spread on social media. Many applauded her intensity and determination in the corruption investigation.

'The betrayal of trust set forth here is outrageous,' Lynch said. 'The scale of corruption alleged herein is unconscionable.'

Fourteen other men connected to FIFA were charged in May.

And that's What's Trending Today.
