Parkland Victim’s Father Rips Dad Who Approached Kavanaugh: ‘Stop Weaponizing’ Tragedy

The mainstream media went nuts on Tuesday after Fred Guttenberg, whose 14-year-old daughter, Jaime, was killed in the Parkland school shooting in Florida, claimed that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh refused to shake his hand (it wasn’t true, as the Daily Wire reported).

But the MSM completely ignored another father, Andrew Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, was killed in the Valentine’s Day shooting.

In case you missed it, the orchestrated event was intended to capture the spotlight, as Guttenberg announced the day before that he would be at the hearing.

Guttenberg was there after Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) invited him.

Guttenberg claimed that Judge Kavanaugh fled after he extended his hand.

But Pollack said that Feinstein and the media were simply grandstanding over the deaths of innocent children.

“Certain politicians like @SenFeinstein and the media never miss out on a chance to use the deaths of the innocent victims of the Parkland school shooting. Truly pathetic and disgraceful. What is wrong with these people?” he wrote on Twitter.

And he said “Judge Kavanaugh was not responsible for the Parkland school shooting that killed my daughter. @RobertwRuncie, FBI, and Sheriff Israel are. Judge Kavanaugh is a decent man and should be confirmed. Stop weaponizing Parkland to advance a dangerous political agenda!”

Pollack also tweeted:

Pollack’s son, Hunter, also got into the act.

This is, of course, how Democrats operate. They’ll exploit any tragedy in an attempt to achieve their goals. As former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel famously said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”
