Meghan McCain’s husband, the founder and the publisher of The Federalist, a right-wing site, unleashed an appalling tweet following the CNN town hall Wednesday in which the audience was filled with survivors of mass shootings, including the recent massacre at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. National Rifle Association spokesperson Dana Loesch came face-to-face with survivors and grieving family members. But, to McCain’s husband, Ben Domenech, the survivors are just a “bunch of idiots.”

That didn’t go down well on Twitter.
This “Room full of Idiots” as called by Meghan McCain’s husband, Ben Domenech, are American Citizens. Senator Marco Rubio is a public servant, and as such should meet with them. If he is uncomfortable, then he is not qualified for that job.

Can anyone imagine the lever of grief of losing a child and then, have to endure disgraceful remarks?

Hey Ben what happened to your tweet calling 17 year olds who just saw their friends murdered “idiots”? I can’t seem to find it. 🤔🤔🤔

And this was Meghan McCain’s husband Ben Domenech’s tweet from last night👇. Neither one has respect or empathy for gun violence victims. pic.twitter.com/mUFAp1wNpM

Since he brought up the word ‘idiots,’ watch Marco Rubio squirm:
Florida school shooting survivor Cameron Kasky challenges Sen. Marco Rubio: “Can you tell me right now that you will not accept a single donation from the NRA?” https://t.co/LiU42QFBEv #StudentsStandUp https://t.co/p6jlUGFxOs

Domenech was outed in 2006 for plagiarizing from other publications.
