Angry about the media’s polarizing coverage following the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, Andrew Pollack, the father of Meadow Pollack, who was one of the murdered students, slammed Fox News’ Chris Wallace for focusing on gun control rather than school safety.
Pollack gave an emotional speech in front of President Trump at the White House during a meeting last week with parents and students affected by the shooting. He spoke passionately about his 17-year-old daughter and demanded that action be taken to ensure a tragedy like this never happen again.
“It’s not going to be fixed because I just heard what you said, what you are focusing on, polarizing this event, the murder of these kids. You’re talking about gun control,” Pollack told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”
Via the Washington Examiner:
“You’re just talking about gun control, which is going to just give you more ratings,” he continued. “Today it’s not about guns, it’s about the safety in our schools. And that’s what you ask Gov. Scott about and I got to listen to that at my house.”
Pollack drew national attention last week for his emotional plea for action during a White House listening session about school safety with President Trump.
“I’m pissed because my daughter, I’m not going to see again,” he said. “She’s not here. She’s at [a] cemetery, where I go to visit her now.”
Later that day Pollack said, “She’s gone” after finding out his daughter was one of the students that was gunned down by Nikolas Cruz.
Hateful liberals hurled insults at the grieving father because he is a Trump supporter.
Some of the vile insults included tweets like, “I don’t feel sorry for him and f*ck Trump” and “Maybe he should have thought twice before voting for Terrorist Trump”.
Beryl Smile said he felt sorry for Pollack’s loss, BUT… “It’s true. I feel horrible for his loss… but his vote helped the killer purchase the weapon. It’s going to sit with him and we’re all going to have to rethink our politics.”
The weapon was purchased the year PRIOR to President Trump taking office – that would be on Obama’s watch, so Beryl is ignorant and cruel.

President Trump has promised to address school safety to ensure that students are safe, as well as review current gun laws. To begin with, he has proposed raising the legal age to buy a gun from 18 to 21.
