Thursday morning on Fox & Friends, National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch and the show's hosts discussed Loesch's experience at a recent CNN town hall where she was confronted by survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, as well as parents who lost children in the attack.
But rather than empathize with those who personally experienced the horror of living through a mass shooting, the hosts apparently perceived Loesch as the victim.
During an interview with NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch, [Brian] Kilmeade told her, “No one had it worse than you in that town hall where people were just so emotional, illogical — they were unconsolable [sic].”
While Kilmeade may view Loesch as the real victim, 17 people were killed during the shooting, and the town hall featured commentary and questions from survivors and family members of those who were murdered.
“Dana, I think we’re all on board with you that the schools should be hardened,” host Steve Doocy said. “And the president has been talking about, you know, maybe we do, across the board, what they do in a number of states — and that’s arm the teachers.”
