Letting Students Spew Ugly Smears (Part I)
Host Jake Tapper: “I want to bring in Cameron Kasky, he’s a junior, and he has a question for Senator Rubio. Cameron?”
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Cameron Kasky: “I’m sorry, I know I’m not supposed to do this, but I’m not going to listen to that. Senator Rubio, it’s hard to look at you and not look down the barrel on an AR-15 and not look at Nikolas Cruz....I wished I could have asked the NRA lady [Dana Loesch] a question. I wish the NRA lady – I could have talked too because I would ask her, how she can look in the mirror, considering the fact she has children, but maybe she avoids those.”
Sen. Marco Rubio: “Sorry?”
Kasky: “I don’t freakin’ know.”
Tapper: “It’s ok. The question was about NRA money.”...
Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Emma Gonzalez: “Alright. Dana Loesch, I want to know that we will support your two children in the way that we will not — you will not.”
