Donald Trump and the Parkland Massacre
It was just a horrible coincidence, albeit a bloody one.
But only hours after I ran this post with the picture of Donald Trump brandishing an AR 15 rifle.
The same weapon was used to slaughter a large number of high school students in Florida.
A heavily armed young man barged into his former high school about an hour northwest of Miami on Wednesday, opening fire on terrified students and teachers and leaving a death toll of 17 that could rise even higher, the authorities said.
And Trump never looked more hypocritical.
For no President of the United States has done more to promote that deadly weapon.
Or received more ad money from the NRA during the last election campaign.
And as for Rick Scott and little Marco Rubio they too are both in the pockets of the NRA and are just as hypocritical.
Florida Republicans Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Rick Scott were swift to condemn the horrific school shooting in their state on Wednesday afternoon, offering prayers after a gunman killed at least 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.
But both men have a history of coziness with gun advocates, receiving “A+” ratings and endorsements from the National Rifle Association ahead of their respective elections in 2014 and 2016. The distinction is reserved “for legislators who have excellent voting records on Second Amendment issues and who have vigorously fought to promote and defend the right to keep and bear arms.”
Even though the AR 15 has been used to slaughter the innocent from the children at Sandy Hook, to the LGBT people at the Pulse night club in their own backyard.
And Donald Trump so loves the NRA and that gun, that he has his own custom made model.
With the motto of the state of New Hampshire emblazoned on it:
LIVE FREE OR DIE.
Tell that to the slaughtered children of Parkland Florida.
And to the monstrous maniac with their blood all over himself...
And of course, make America truly free again.
By bringing down Trump in the next election...
