Obama tweets a more substantive response to latest school shooting than Trump made in entire speech

Trump read an entire, prepared seven minute speech and didn’t once mention guns.

There have been 18 school shootings already this year, and Trump didn’t once mention guns.

Trump implied blame on the students themselves, but didn’t once mention guns.

Trump signed a law that made it easier for people with mental illness to buy guns, so of course he mentioned mental illness but he didn’t once mention guns. 

Trump took more outside donations from the NRA than from anyone else, and after yet another school massacre he didn’t once mention guns.

Barack Obama took no money from the NRA.


We are grieving with Parkland. But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job. And until we can honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep them safe from harm, including long overdue, common-sense gun safety laws that most Americans want, then we have to change.
