BREAKING: A survivor of last week’s mass shooting just launched a brutal attack on President Donald Trump on live television.
Last Wednesday, a gunman walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida armed with an AR-15 and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring 14 more. On Sunday, five students and survivors of the shooting were interviewed on CBS, and they held nothing back in launching attacks against President Donald Trump, the National Rifle Association, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.).
Independent Journal Review reported that student David Hogg was asked to respond to Trump’s tweet about how Democrats did not pass gun control when they controlled the House of Representatives and the Senate:
Just like they don’t want to solve the DACA problem, why didn’t the Democrats pass gun control legislation when they had both the House & Senate during the Obama Administration. Because they didn’t want to, and now they just talk!

“President Trump, you control the House of Representatives, you control the Senate, and you control the Executive,” he said. “You haven’t taken a single bill for mental health care or gun control and passed it. And that’s pathetic. We’ve seen a government shutdown, we’ve seen tax reform, but nothing to save our children’s lives.”
“Are you kidding me? You think now is the time to focus on the past and not the future to prevent the death of thousands of other children? You sicken me,” Hogg added.
Student Emma Gonzalez then slammed politicians who are supported by the NRA, saying that her classmates are planning on making sure any politician who doesn’t back their movement will be voted out of office.
“At this point, I don’t even know if the adults in power who are funded by the NRA, I don’t even think we need them anymore because they’re going to be gone by midterm election,” she said. “There’s barely any time to save their skins.”
