Morning Joe’s Wednesday panel ripped apart the people who have spread gross conspiracy theories about the students who survived last week’s school shooting in Parkland, Florida.
In response to calls for gun control from the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, several conservative figures have smeared the survivors as crisis actors and pawns for the political left. Not the least significant person pouring fuel on this fire is the president’s son, Donald Trump Jr.
As the panelists talked about this, they described the attacks against the kids as “disgusting” and “beyond slimy.” Mika Brzezinski particularly tore into the recent comments from Dinesh D’Souza, saying “I don’t even know why his voice is allowed out there and there’s two other people like this that at some point need to get a life and figure out something else to do with their time.”
The panel eventually turned their attention to Fox host Tucker Carlson, who said last night that the left was using the survivors as “moral blackmail” against pro-gun people. Joe Scarborough was particularly unimpressed by Fox News contributor Dan Bongino, who he accused of blaming the Parkland students for the massacre.
