The true heroes of last weekend’s March For Our Lives, teenager Delaney Tarr and other Parkland shooting survivors have been extremely fair. They are not just bashing the White House or the Florida governor’s office. If a politician from any party is tied to the NRA, he or she is getting outed.

But in a new interview from Fox News Sunday, Tarr could not avoid calling out the hypocrisy of President Trump on guns and the NRA. After the Parkland tragedy, Trump had called a bi-partisan meeting and waxed liberal on the subject of gun control, declaring that reform was on the way. (It wasn’t.)

In this clip, Chris Wallace tries to harangue the students by mentioning 45’s gun-control initiatives, many of which have been walked back already. In response, Delaney tar-and-feathers the POTUS by describing Trump’s empty rhetoric as exactly what it is.

No state may have borne more of Trump’s focused fury than Georgia. President Joe Biden carried the state by over 12,500 votes, making it second to Arizona when it comes to the the narrowest margin of victory. This was far outside the realm of possible change that might be addressed by a recount, but Georgia conducted a recount anyway. When that didn’t make things any better for Trump, he requested that Georgia count a third time, which it did. Trump still lost, and by a bigger number than ever.

A Republican House candidate for a competitive seat in northwest Ohio said Monday that mass shootings are an acceptable price to pay for his right to own guns.

"I don't care if countries in Europe have less shootings because they don't have guns. I care about THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and OUR 2nd Amendment Rights," Republican J.R. Majewski tweeted Monday evening. "I think Americans stopped caring what Europe thought of our country in 1776."
