Andrew Pollack, the father of a student killed in the Parkland school mass shooting, tore into Sen. Dianne Feinstein in a series of tweets Wednesday, accusing the Democrat of pushing a “radical” anti-gun agenda during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
“Senator Feinstein, Please stop weaponizing the death of my daughter to push your radical agenda. Sincerely, Andrew Pollack #FixIt,” tweetedMr. Pollack, whose 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, was killed in the Feb. 14 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
“A percentage of every dollar raised by a whacky politician using ‘Parkland’ as a fundraising tool, should go to the families of the victims,” he wrote in another tweet. “Stop using our heartbreak to raise money and push a dangerous agenda! It’s disgusting & pathetic. No wonder the country hates you people.”
Mr. Pollack’s tweets come amid an onslaught of criticism directed toward Judge Kavanaugh after a video showed him appearing to reject a handshake from Fred Guttenberg, another father of one of the 17 Parkland victims, during a break in Tuesday’s hearing. Critics immediately slammed the judge for snubbing Mr. Guttenberg, but a second video showedMr. Guttenberg quickly approaching Judge Kavanaugh from behind with an extended hand before security ushered him away.
