Parkland Father Slams McConnell And Trump Over Inaction On Guns | Velshi & Ruhle | MSNBC


  1. Trump & McConnell don’t care about anyone/anything but themselves, power, and money. Voting & writing to your congresspersons & senators are the only things we can do

  2. Vote for #gunsense and end this madness! It doesn’t have to be this way, it isn’t in any other civilized country.

  3. 20 yrs after Columbine the souls of the dead still ask why? F… background checks! Assault weapons need to be taken off the street period! The deranged Psyco with no criminal record, or history of mental illness on a suicide massacre mission and weapon of war simply walks into another state or county. Can you imagine people in Japan, Denmark, Hungary or the Czech Republic or Finland even discussing this insanity! Basketcase of a nation. Mitch McConnell and Wayne La Pierre need a beating after every suicide massacre with a weapon of war.

  4. We are failing our children or sending them off to be slaughtered. When the only thing they should be worried about his homework. Our children deserve to keep their innocence as long as possible.

    1. Depends on who you ask about gun’s they wanna keep em but don’t want to instate new laws that prevents unnecessary violence & makes children pay for inaction.

  5. Moscow mitch needs to he voted out of office before he does more harm to America. Heinous, pathetic human being.

  6. This is correct. Trump doesn’t deserve the title of President. I too will only refer to him as the current resident of the Whitehouse from now on!

    1. I consistently refer to him as dump. Simple and everyone knows what I’m talking about. Wouldn’t work on TV of course.

  7. Well, get ready for the next ACTIVE shooter routine at school tomorrow… American children’s lives are at stake and it will only continue to get worse. It seems you are in large part devoid of empathy America. Oh, how you have fallen. What happened to you?

  8. Trump is the most prolific pathological liar in American history.
    A pathological liar like Trump, is someone who lies compulsively. While there appears to be many possible causes for pathological lying, it’s not yet entirely understood why someone would lie this way.

    Some lies seem to be told in order to make the pathological liar appear the hero, or to gain acceptance or sympathy, while there’s seemingly nothing to be gained from other lies. Trump does this constantly at his rallies. He tries to play the victim and the hero at the same time.

    Pathological liars are great storytellers. Their lies tend to be very detailed and colorful.
    Even though obviously over-the-top, the pathological liar may be very convincing.
    Along with being made the hero or victim in their stories, pathological liars tend to tell lies that seem to be geared at gaining admiration, sympathy, or acceptance by others.

    During a July ceremony in the Rose Garden to formally sign a bill that will extend the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund through 2092, Trump told a group of more than 60 first responders an outrageous lie when he said “Many of those affected were firefighters, police officers, and other first responders. I was down there also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder. But I was down there—I spent a lot of time down there with you.”

    There is no evidence that Trump participated in recovery efforts, there’s also no evidence he spent any time near ground zero in the week following the attack.
    Trump also claimed that he lost 100 friends on 9/11. To this day, he has not been able to name one friend that he lost on 9/11.

    A pathological liar tells lies and stories that fall somewhere between conscious lying and delusion. They sometimes believe their own lies. It’s difficult to know how to deal with a pathological liar who may not always be conscious of their lying. Some do it so often that experts believe they may not know the difference between fact and fiction after some time.
    Like when Trump said that his father was born in Germany.😂 Everyone knows that his father was born in NY. When asked questions, they may speak a lot without ever being specific or answering the question.

    Most people lie at one time or another. Previous research has suggested that we tell an average of 1.65 lies every day. Most of these lies are what are considered “white lies.”
    Pathological lies, on the other hand, are told consistently and habitually. They tend to appear pointless and often continuous. It’s been reported that Trump tells at least 12 lies per day.😲

    Identifying a pathological liar isn’t always easy, unless his name is DonaldTrump. The following are some signs to help identify a pathological liar:

    They often talk about experiences and accomplishments in which they appear heroic, they’re also the victim in many of their stories, often looking for sympathy, their stories tend to be elaborate and very detailed, they respond elaborately and quickly to questions, but the responses are usually vague and don’t provide an answer to the question, they may have different versions of the same story, which stems from forgetting previous details, or previous lies..

  9. I’m British and although we’ve certainly got our own Brexit related problems when i think of my 7 year old child doing regular mass-shooter drills in schools and hear discussions about how more armed guards are the solution, i thank God i live in a country where my kid doesn’t enjoy the constitutional right to die in school in a hail of bullets

  10. “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
    ― Benito Mussolini

  11. Every single death from every single shooting can be pinned on McTurtle and his stubborn inability to act.

    Vote that grease-plug out at once and replace him with someone who got the country and its people’s interest instead.
