As Twitchy told you this afternoon, President Trump has a number of invited guests at the White House, including survivors and family members of victims of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, for a “listening session.” Trump got an earful from many in attendance:
Pretty extraordinary scene watching a US President sit there and let victims just go down the line and vent at him.

"I'm only 15, I'm a sophomore. 19 years ago, the first school shooting in Columbine happened. And I was born into a world where I never got to experience safety and peace. There needs to be significant change in this country, because this has to never happen again." pic.twitter.com/vNaBIWoXlX

In spite of many moving statements and President Trump expressing a willingness to try and solve a terrible problem, Touré was not impressed by the survivors and their families represented at the White House listening session:
This White House-Parkland listening session feels like a profile in cowardice: where are the Parkland students who have been so public and strong? David Hogg? Emma Gonzalez? Is the White House afraid of powerful teenagers?

Was Touré just unhappy with what wasn’t said? Was there not enough Dem agenda pushing?
Calling school shooting survivors and parents who lost their children cowards because they aren’t shouting loudly enough for the policies you want is something garbage people do. https://t.co/acsI75zyUm

Why are you attacking the students who are there? What kind of person are you? https://t.co/h8FT8SELbf

Media now attacking Parkland survivors for not sticking to the preferred narrative.

Your daily reminder that liberals don't want to hear from all Parkland students, only the ones who agree with them https://t.co/MzdcFok6a8

Absolutely shameless, but it speaks volumes about how the Left views these kinds of horrible events.
