Father of MSD Shooting Victim Removed from SOTU, Pelosi Rips up Speech

Fred Guttenberg, who lost his daughter in the 2018 shooting a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, was ejected from last night’s State of the Union address after an outburst.

When President Trump mentioned protecting gun rights, Guttenberg apparently yelled ‘what about the victims of gun violence, like my daughter.’ Florida Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch tweeted that Guttenberg deserves an answer, and it’s shameful that the President is doing nothing about gun violence. Guttenberg was led out of the House of Representatives, receiving some applause from Democratic lawmakers on his way. Guttenberg has been pushing lawmakers to support background checks for buying bullets.

He was invited to the speech by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who ripped up the President’s speech, which had names of the country’s fallen, saying it was full of “mistruths.”
