A Florida massacre survivor just went viral calling out Melania Trump by name

- Februari 23, 2018

Of all the vile Republican responses to the horrific Stoneman Douglas High School mass shooting last week — during which seventeen people were killed and fifteen wounded when a young man entered the school and opened fire with an AR-15 style rifle — by far the grossest is the absurd conspiracy theory that the survivors speaking out for gun control are in fact “crisis actors” hired to pretend to be students to push a left-wing agenda.

Donald Trump Jr. himself endorsed a tangent to the absurd theory earlier this week when he liked a tweet that impugned student survivor David Hogg by implying that he had been told by his former FBI employee father to speak out against guns. It’s an indefensible act made all the more egregious by his proximity to the most powerful office in the world.

As has become increasingly common, one of the brave student survivors from Stoneman George decided to step in and put a stop to the harmful behavior. A Twitter user purporting to be Lauren Hogg, a student of Stoneman George, tweeted at First Lady Melania Trump.

Hogg pointed out that Melania claims that she wants to fight cyberbullying, but has said nothing publicly about her son-in-law’s shameful behavior. Hogg says she and her family are being harassed by people from all over the world, which is the last thing she deserves to be subjected to after the horror she’s already endured. She ended her tweets by assigning blame squarely where it belongs: the Trump family.

Add your name to demand Trump & Congress act to prevent gun violence. THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE NOT ENOUGH!

The Stoneman Douglas students are planning a massive march on March 24 to demand gun control and challenge the NRA’s stranglehold on the Republican Party.

Massacres like this have become a fixture of American life, and it’s far past time Congress take action to prevent the murders of more children. It’s absolutely pathetic that the GOP is so beholden to its gun lobbyist donors and firearm fetishists that it’s willing to ignore the wholesale slaughter of American children. They must be shamed into passing gun control legislation, and brave kids are leading the charge.
