New York Post Cover Begs Trump to Act on Gun Control

The New York Post's Friday cover is absolutely savage, and President Trump should pay attention.


The latest issue of the New York Post is sending a message to President Donald Trump after his, well, complete lack of any meaningful response to the Valentine's Day massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

"Mr. President, Please Act," the cover reads. "We need sensible gun control to help stop the slaughter."

Seventeen people were killed and 14 more injured in the shooting. Instead of offering a solution to the never-ending plague of gun violence in our country, the President had the audacity to offer "thoughts and prayers" and even went so far as to blame the victims and their families for not stopping the shooter.

Trump then went on to blame "mental illness" for the shooting, and never once mentioned guns or gun control.

Here is how President Obama demanded gun reform, with tears in his eyes.

Rachel Maddow excoriated the Trump administration over Trump's response, saying they have "iced water in their veins."

Twitter users had some thoughts of their own about the Post's cover.

This guy is... probably right.

Or maybe he didn't go far enough.

This is absolutely savage.

"Maybe we should rename all schools with women's names. That way Republicans would care about the babies inside them," The Hoarse Whisperer wrote.

Trump is currently at his Florida estate, Mar-A-Lago, enjoying sunshine and golf. He and First Lady Melania Trump say they plan on visiting survivors of the school shooting.

President Trump, are you listening? You have teenagers who watched their friends, teachers, and classmates get murdered pleading with you to do something to prevent this from happening again. Do your job and keep this country safe, even if it means from ourselves.
