Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Wednesday called on survivors of the Parkland shooting to be removed from a House Judiciary Committee hearing after they interrupted the congressman’s rant on illegal immigration.
At a House Judiciary hearing on gun violence, Gaetz attempted to change the subject to murders allegedly committed by undocumented immigrants.
After Gaetz called on Congress to build President Donald Trump’s proposed wall, a survivor of the Parkland shooting reportedly interrupted. Gaetz reacted by trying to have the survivors removed.
“Is there a process in the committee by which if the very same people are repeatedly interrupting the time of the members that those people will be asked to depart the committee,” Gaetz asked Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY).
Nadler responded by explaining that he has the discretion to remove people who interrupt, but the chairman chose not to invoke that discretion.

Trump impersonator hilariously previews the president’s Mount Rushmore speech
On Friday, musician and Trump impersonator J-L Cauvin posted a video satirically previewing the president's Independence Day speech at Mount Rushmore.
"The Democrats want you to wear masks, but we don't need masks," said Cauvin, impersonating Trump's New York accent. "Everybody's feeling great — stop coughing! Everybody's feeling great. So healthy. Such great health."
"Democrats want to kill you and silence you," he continued.
He then delivered a parody rant against removing statues, which sources report Trump will make a central point of his speech. "Thomas Jefferson, that's another one they hate. Everyone makes mistakes, but he had African-American girlfriends!"
