Tonight, in Mineral Wells, Texas

The parents in Uvalde are demanding motion to handle gun violence so no more families must undergo what they’re experiencing.

Nothing more serious to me than getting justice for the families in Uvalde and stopping this from ever happening again.

Anyone who laughs a few mass shooting of college kids deserves to be cussed out. https://t.co/3u1ZEvERd5

Say what you’ll about Beto, but there is not a politician within the state that may get grandmas to applaud “motherfucker.” Highly effective crowd work. https://t.co/jY38mAmNkV

There are some individuals who will probably be more upset about Beto cursing than the incontrovertible fact that someone laughed at a shooting— let alone the deaths of 19 children.

In case you’re one one among those people just know you’re an asshole.
