MSNBC claims Florida Governor Rick Scott was ‘too busy’ to meet Parkland students–but Rick Scott was attending student funerals at the time

February 21, 2018

  Earlier today MSNBC host Ali Velshi tweeted out that Rick Scott was “too busy” to meet with students from Parkland.

He then went on the air and made the same claim:

“They flooded the governor’s office, and the governor is refusing to speak with these students,” Tur said. “These are students from across Florida. They’re students from Parkland … The survivors. It sounds like they’re not being heard.”

“They’re asking the governor to do something about rifles, to do something about assault weapons, to stop looking into immigration so much, and to focus on what is the issue that they’re there to talk about: weapons. Their lives,” Tur said.

  A short time later Rick Scott’s office contacted MSNBC and told them the reason he was “refusing to speak with these students” and why he was “too busy” at that moment–he was attending the funeral of one of the students.

“Right now, he is not in the office. He is at the funeral, I believe, for a student,” Tur said. “That’s why he cannot meet with those kids right now. Obviously, they’re not happy about it. Those kids are still inside that office. They want to be heard. We’ll see if they wait there until 5:00 today.”

  So, Rick Scott did agree to meet with the students at 5:00–after he was back from the funeral–and MSNBC was forced to clarify this story. Ali Velshi eventually did correct his tweet to a point. He admitted in follow up tweets the Florida governor would be meeting with the students but he never explained the reason for the delay.

  And liberals still wonder why so many people do not trust the mainstream media any more.

    Something that might add to the info here:

    The DHS and other ‘arms’ of the ‘shadow deep state cabal govt.’ have great plans for themselves and bad plans for those who ‘aren’t them or theirs’!
    Who’s on the “body grab” LIST?
