Teacher confronts Paul Ryan at fundraiser: "You're here celebrating the death of 17 children"

PAUL RYAN RUSHED TO FLORIDA - FOR A WEEKEND OF FUNDRAISING


After the latest massacre of school children and teachers, House Speaker Paul Ryan crept into action.
Not to meet with the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and their families, but for a fundraising weekend at Key Biscayne, for "the NRCC's $15,000 PAC donor program, made up of business, trade association and law firm PACs who are vital to the NRCC."
At the first event of the weekend, Ryan demonstrated his concern for the community by having a primary school teacher who confronted him about guns kicked out of his party.

Maria Thorne, a Key Biscayne activist, said she noticed motorcade traffic clogging up her commute home from her job as a fifth grade teacher at iPrep Academy, where she spent the day reassuring scared students that she could keep them safe from a shooter.
Thorne, 49, heard a rumor that the motorcade might belong to Ryan, so she took a friend into the Ritz to investigate.
She said that men with lanyards at the entrance of a private area confirmed that it was a fundraiser for Ryan.

Thorne said she found Ryan in the middle of the room - "I shook his hand and everything," she said - and introduced herself as a teacher and Key Biscayner.
"Nice," the Republican congressman replied.

"Nice?" Thorne said. "You're here celebrating the death of 17 children."

After that, Thorne said, Ryan told her he "didn't want to talk politics" or argue.
When Thorne tried to continue, security escorted her out.
She chanted "No more guns" on her way out the door, she said.

12. He 3rd in line to the presidency, so ...

he's entitled to Secret Service protection.

Remember when the RW made a big stink about Speaker Nancy Pelosi
using her Government supplied airplane to fly congress members
back to their district on her plane?

13. I did not remember that.

I do remember the republicans talk a good game about saving money and being fiscally sound, and I presume the good Speaker didn't forget how to drive when he assumed his post.

16. Hmm. Mixed bag.

Security requirements are security requirements. (Though I think we can relax on that now.)

On the other hand, why the 'no refueling' requirement?
Certainly a BS tempest in a teapot though.

21. Speaking of fundraisers, here is one at 800K and rising....with Clooney to add:

https://www.gofundme.com/8psm8-march-for-our-lives

My name is Cameron Kasky. I am a student at Stoneman Douglas.

I created the #NeverAgain movement as well as the March for Our lives. Our team has been working hard since day one.

The funds will be spent on the incredibly difficult and expensive process that is organzing a march like this. We have people making more specific plans, but for now know that this is for the march and everything left over will be going to the victims' funds.

We will have all the funds put into our website's donation page.

Thank you.

At a fundraising event?! He does realize that he is a politician does he not? What a waste of air this man is.
