  1. Trump would probably look for another photo opportunity with the girl’s ashes smiling and give the two thumbs up.

    • @Merrilou Neigenfind let me explain this another way to you the world is a big bad place to live in. Your parents taught you a different way than mine your parents shielded you. Why my parents taught me about the real world and alot of its parents wanted me to survive in this crazy world.. Well your parents didn’t put much thought into it. My parents started teaching me how to kill people at the age of 7years old. My parents were military.they new how bad the world realy is. Why your parents ran from it. When i grew up we had people 24/7 365 days a year that wanted to nuke us it was called the cold war.& you are so worried about gun owers you libtards do make me laugh whats a few dead bodys here and there over nuclear strikes . Think about that one.

      @Mike Smith Save it. I don’t take advice from someone who thinks about killing others. My father walked with a pronounced limp his entire adult life from an injury sustained in WWII. My brother volunteered for Vietnam. I would ask him about your post but he’s dead. He served in Vietnam at the same time as an uncle and two cousins. They made it home. My father-in-law served in the Marines for 25 years and served all over the world. My father was a life long Republican and was the kindest hearted person I have ever known.

    • @Justin Martyr 😂😂😂😂

    • The goal of the NWO/DNC is to reduce humanity worldwide. 1) Children – murder at birth, slavery, pedophilia, school shootings. 2) Inflict death – AIDS, Cancer, Fires, Chemtrails. 3) Healthcare – overwhelm with socialized medicine to deteriorate the level of care. 4) Civil War – Use MSM to politically divide until we kill each other. 5) Create War – 9/11, Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor.

  3. Heartbroken mother brings ashes of child to news interview.
    Trump fans run amok and attack mom for her heartbreak. There’s no bottom to the deprivated Trumpwads and their cult like madness….

      Sounds like irresponsible parenting to me.

    • ANARCHY LUiS how is it that your niece and nephew were left to fend for themselves against a home invasion and attempted rape at ages 7 and 9? Where were the adults whose job it is to protect them? This goes beyond the right to bare arms. This is extreme neglect of those poor children! My God!

      She is being political.

    • @Mike Smith Mike I’m a gun owner myself man, I understand full well about gun control and safety. Yeah anybody could try to build a gun but most likely it’s not going to be a full-fledged assault rifle with a hundred round drum on it, most likely a bolt-action something common.

      But be realistic man, you’re trying to say that guns aren’t the problem that more people with guns is what’s going to make this country safer? I’ve been a gun on her since I turned 21 I legally carry one I have another concealed in my vehicle and I own a couple rifles, and I can’t say when I shot those last because they’re useless they just sit on my closet locked up. TO say I truly need these guns to protect myself …no …I’m not diluted with the notion that the NRA or any other crazy right-winger tries to spew about “left taking away your guns”

      If they wanted to take the guns away they would have done it a long time ago.

      I’m personally tired of seeing massacres happen at schools places people shop work environments. I feel for these people man its one thing to be in a war and worry about some assholes trying to kill you and your friends, it sure as hell is another to worry that some idiot can walk in and start shooting anybody because it doesn’t like the way you look or doesn’t like the way you think or whatever, something needs to be done.

      and by the way I’ve heard that whole speech about banning bicycles cars knives …yeah that shitt don’t fly no more. I’m tired of people trying to find an escape goat just to justify not passing some sort of legislation that would minimize assault rifles or even Force some sort of a control to weapons that nobody should really have on the streets.

      but regardless Mike I respect your opinion and I do agree with you to a point but nevertheless something does need to be done and I really do hope we all figure it out and actually do something that would actually have an effect on minimizing atrocities like these

    • @1911GreaterThanALL awesome. nice and reasonable guy you are! there were no 27 million illegal immigrant, if they are illegal,government wouldn’t have a count on them, 2,majority of the trucker drivers are white, i am a small business owner i do import and export automobile materials related for a living.i know most of the drivers are white. 3, i agree with you Hillary is bad! she got flies on her face,sign of devil.4, gun control ,andrew distinguish himself from the dem party,stating he supports personalized guns which only you can use it,you want safety for your family as well i assume.the process turn your guns in to get reformed and refunded by government if he is the president.5, most likely i think Andrew yang is not gonna be the president.I pull 200k a year ,i don’t need his 1 k.I support andrew yang because the 4th industrial revolution came,your kids and my kids would fight each other ,when there were no more jobs for them. when the 4th revolution came and be effective enough,we either have UBI OR KILL the useless. Andrew is all about love and peace. he is not left ,he is not right ,he is forward. other Dem candidates run on ideals while Andrew run on solutions and plans which will work. I really wish you could be a Yang Gang.

    • @Logical Conservative 2013 Oxford study, is that as much as 47% of current US jobs are at risk of automation.there were 7 millions jobs lost to AI during the layoff wave between 2004 and 2009 .

    • @Logical Conservative Research released by Gallup on Thursday indicates a collision between technology and “business as usual” is coming soon, and the fallout will be ugly, especially for Millennials. Automation and artificial intelligence (AI) are among the most disruptive forces descending upon the workplace, says the Gallup report, and 37% of Millennials “are at high risk of having their job replaced by automation, compared with 32% of those in the two older generations.”

    • @Logical Conservative In a study early this year, McKinsey found that about half of all work activities globally have the technological potential to be automated, but the new report provides a more realistic assessment based on economic, social and technical factors. It concludes that from zero to a third of work activities could be displaced by 2030.

  6. Andrew Yang probably showed more empathy in that single moment than Trump ever did in his lifetime

    Mr. Yang allowed himself to experience and share his pain and fear at the thought of ever losing his own children and of the pain that other parents experience when that happens them. He is authentic and compassionate and normal. We have lost touch with normal because of Trump and his repulsiveness.

    What’s really incredibly sad is that this woman now has nothing to loose yet she puts herself on national TV and pleads for others, people she doesn’t know and will probably never meet. I don’t know how I would behave after someone took MY child. I don’t know if I would be jealous of other parents or not.

    I heard that many children are stressed with fear as the date gets closer for the school year. I remember growing up getting new clothes and a back pack and being excited about the day.

    I hope that anybody reading this who has lost a child to gun violence will accept my sympathies and well wishes

      “…president to not allow anyone in his administration to respond to subpoenas from congressional oversight committees.”

      Far as I know congressional committees don’t have any legal authority they can make recommendations to a Judge which do have legal power.

      “…prevent a few people from not testifying, he’s the first president to not allow any of them to testify.”

    • One Man Journey, As for the “Living Constitution” Lie.
      *The first 10 Amendments are each part The Bill of Rights.* The Bill of rights are the deal with the States in order to ratify the Constitution for the United States. Under Treaty Law it is held that violation of the Treaty can nullify the Treaty. (The Constitution for the United is a Treaty between the States.)
      In order to do anything to The Bill of Rights you will need the unanimous consent of the States. Or you will have a succession crisis where the States leaving will be fully in the right legally. Or the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union becomes the Governing order of These United States.
      You don’t belong here.
      Leave this place.
      Liberty is not for you.

      @David Grover I don’t consider requiring for registration of gun ownership and doing background checks before selling to someone dangerous is effort of “extraordinary lengths”. As the owner of 3 guns myself, if extraordinary lengths is what it takes to prevent innocent people from getting their life snuffed out by some random whacko mass murderer, I will happily be inconvenienced. The thing is, the sooner we can implement solutions the less prohibitive it will be. If nothing is done, at some point in the future it will be so bad that far more drastic laws will be introduced. Current laws are simply not working.

    • One Man Journey, Technology bypassed Control decades ago Weapons as political protest, From Forgotten Weapons. that works this well ronzor7 is built as easily as this or a weapon built like this, Gun control is dead.
      The only way you can get any gun control to work is through draconian authoritarian measures and they will still fail because of those measures.
      Or civilization will collapse because those measures have been put in place.
