‘No one would know your names’: NRA host taunts Parkland teens over their dead classmates on eve of DC march

Published

on

The host of an online only NRA -TV show took the pains to attack the Parkland, Florida teens who are behind the massive march expected in Washington D.C. on Saturday, saying if their friends hadn’t died, no one would know or care about them.

In a clip posted to YouTube, host Colion Noir addressed the teens who now have a bigger megaphone than his occasional rantings posted online.

“To all the kids from Parkland getting ready to use your First Amendment to attack everyone else’s Second Amendment at your march on Saturday, I wish a hero like [Maryland’s Great Mills High School resource officer] Blaine [Gaskill] had been at Marjory Douglas High School last month,” Noir charged, adding, “Because your classmates would still be alive and no one would know your names. And because the media would have completely and utterly ignored your story the way they ignored his.”

During his diatribe, the NRA apologist also attacked the teens for being young,  and involved, stating Saturday’s march is “one-sided, logic-deprived, and intellectually dishonest” before dismissing it as “festival masquerading as a march.”

Further dismissing the students, the hyperbolic Noir accused the students of wanting to  “burn the Constitution and rewrite the parts that you all like in crayon.”

The NRA has been reeling from the pressure being put on them — including loss of sponsorship with companies that no longer want their name associated with with pro-gun group — leading the organization to sic their spokespeople after the teen survivors who witnessed 17 slaughtered at Marjory Douglas High School last month by a fellow student armed with an assault rifle.

Published

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday fired back at President Donald Trump after he told her to "go back" to her country of origin -- even though she was born in the U.S.

"It's unfortunate that he feels the way he feels about people of color," Ocasio-Cortez explained to NBC News. "It's unfortunate the way he feels about immigrants, naturalized citizens or not."

"What I would tell him is that it's time to move on from him," she continued as she seemed to choke up. "And it's time to move on from his conception of an America that we tried to move past for a long time."

Schumer: If Trump can’t handle a little criticism from Fox News then ‘he doesn’t deserve to be president’

Published

on

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Tuesday suggested that Donald Trump "doesn't deserve to be president" if he can't handle criticism from Fox News.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Schumer noted that Trump recently lashed out at Fox News soon after the conservative network aired World Cup viewers chanting "f*ck Trump."

"I just felt it was important to point President Trump amazingly attacked Fox News in the last few days in a series of Tweets for coverage he viewed as unfavorable to his administration," Schumer said. "This is Fox News, a news outlet that frankly is 90% or more on the president’s side. Their most popular shows seem to just be cheerleaders for President Trump."

In a video posted to Twitter several hours before Donald Trump is scheduled to launch his "Salute to America" Fourth of July party, the Marine Corps band was compelled to perform in the pouring rain before a sparse crowd of early attendees and media awaiting the main event.

According to Jim Spellman of CTGN, the sky opened with a deluge of rain that had people running for cover -- only for the military musicians to be paraded out for either a rehearsal or a time-consuming filler until the big show begins.

Earlier in the day, the National Park Service warned that the event could be rained out, with thundershowers moving swiftly into the area.
