On Thursday, CNN co-host Alisyn Camerota criticized Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for not doing more to push for additional gun control after last month’s school shooting.

The “New Day” host made the comment while interviewing Rep. Ted Deutch (D-FL), whose district includes Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where the mass shooting took place.

“Marco Rubio, who represents Florida and was there at our CNN town hall, he introduced a bill yesterday,” Camerota said. “It was about Daylight Savings Time. He wants to make it year round. Do you think that helps gun violence?”

“I assume that’s a rhetorical question,” Deutch chuckled.

“My point is things are being done in Congress, but they’re not being done on this issue of even his home state and I just want you to explain why this would be his priority,” Camerota said.


The Reagan Battalion posted a video clip on Twitter shortly after Camerota’s absurd remarks that showed multiple clips of Rubio addressing gun violence in wake of the Parkland shooting.
