Andrew Pollack: Stop Weaponizing Parkland to Advance Dangerous Political Agenda

On the first day of the confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, Parkland father and gun control advocate, Fred Guttenberg, made news for walking up to the judge to introduce himself and shake his hand only to have Kavanaugh turn and walk away with his security team.  Guttenberg's daughter Jamie was murdered during the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Guttenberg, many in the mainstream media, and others opposing Kavanaugh's confirmation have tried to use this to their advantage.  But as NPR noted, a video posted by NBC News does make it appear that "someone who appears to be a Hill staffer seemingly interceding in the interaction."

Guttenberg was an invited guest of California Senator Diane Feinstein.  He denies that this was part of the strategy concocted by the Democrats to disrupt the confirmation hearings. Andrew Pollack, whose daughter was one of the students killed at Parkland earlier this year, joined Dana Loesch on NRATV last night to demand that politicians and the media stop weaponizing Parkland to oppose Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
