The Morning Briefing: Florida Shooting Update, RUSSIAN Troll Farm Busted and Much, Much More

Happy President's Day!

Here's what is on the President's agenda today:

  • In the afternoon, President Trump and the First Lady return to Washington D.C. from Florida.

DAY 10: The nation waits for the Schiff memo to be released

Anti-gun industry flexes its control over sympathetic media, traumatized children

The media immediately mobilized into an anti-gun frenzy following the tragic massacre at a Florida school. Numerous outlets interviewed the child-survivors and witnesses of the slaughter shortly after, as they are useful props to push the leftist anti-gun agenda. Now these children, who are too young to own a gun but are apparently wise enough to solve complicated public policy issues, will hold a march on Washington D.C. and in cities across America. Isn't it amazing how mere 48 hours after this horrific event, a group of kids is able to organize marches all around the U.S. and in Washington D.C.? It's almost like they have help from people who have a political interest in such an event...

Sadly, there were red flags all over the maniac responsible for the massacre. He left a YouTube comment on a video saying he wanted to be a professional school shooter. Now the YouTube comment section is a possibly a bigger cyber toilet than Twitter and it is highly, highly trafficked. Even so, a netizen saw the comment and reported it to the FBI. The best and brightest at the FBI hit a dead end on their "search" for the commenter, even though he made the comment under his legal name and only a handful of people share that name. Next we learned, that someone who knew the maniac, called the Washington D.C. office and gave them a blueprint of what the shooter was going to do and the FBI dropped that ball too. Maybe the D.C. agents need to spend less time in "Andy's office" or texting and more time, you know, doing their job. The shooter was kicked out of school, posted disturbing things on his Snapchat, had almost 30 visits to his house from police, abused/killed animals and abused his mother.

The New York Post reports:

how the deranged teen promised to “shoot [him] dead” and “watch [him] bleed” in graphic threats sent over social media.

Cruz made the grim proclamations to 17-year-old Enea Sabadini beginning in 2016 and may have been kicked out of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last year for brawling with Sabadini.

“You f—–g c–t stole my ex you c–t,” Cruz rages in one message, according to Buzzfeed. “You c–t. I am going to enjoy seeing you down on the grass. I am going to choke you.”

Florida's social services investigated the shooter and his family 2 years ago, "identifying him as a 'vulnerable adult due to mental illness' including depression, autism, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, which he was medicated for."
