Parkland mass shooting survivor David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, called out NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch on Sunday for representing the gun lobby instead of the organization’s 5 million members.
During an interview on ABC, Loesch became enraged over the idea of banning AR-15s or even increasing the minimum purchase age to 21 years old.
Hogg predicted that there would be a change in the way the American public responds to mass shootings because students who had grown up as America was experiencing the epidemic are now old enough to vote.
“Kids are not going to accept this,” Hogg explained. “We love to complain about things… We’re going to have to look very hard at the foundation of this country.”
Hogg also had a message to members of the NRA.
“Listen to Dana [Loesch],” Hogg said, looking directly at the camera. “Is she really speaking to you guys, is she trying to fight for you guys? Or is she actually trying to fight for the gun lobby?”
“Everything she’s saying seems like spectacle,” he added. “Is it just her tone? Or is it what she’s actually saying?”

"A Gretna police officer posted a comment on his Facebook page this past week calling U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a 'vile idiot' who 'needs a round, and I don't mean the kind she used to serve,'" NOLA reported Saturday.
Internet piles on ABC reporter for lavishing praise on Trump for allowing press to ask questions

Despite the White House no longer holding daily press briefings, Phillips praised the "access" she receives from the administration.
"No matter what your politics are, I have to say that I appreciate the access ?Trump? gives us on a regular basis and the ability to ask any question," she said.
She tagged Stephanie Grisham in her tweet, who is Trump's latest press secretary. She also tagged her husband, John Roberts, who does not work in the White House, but works for Fox News.

"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.
"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.
"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.
