Pro-gun Parkland shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv has been targeted by the left as a bad influence on his peers.
That’s what he gets for supporting the Second Amendment.
What’s interesting is that a sitting California Congressman just invited the high schooler to move to the Golden State to smoke weed when he turns 21.
No joke. However, Ted Lieu immediately regretted his decision.
What happens when a dope is pushing an underaged male teen to smoke dope? Wacky Democrat Congressman Ted Lieu just found out the hard way.
Rep. Lieu has emerged as one of the leading voices of the California crazies and has become a go-to guy for the media whenever they are in need of more anti-Trump material which terrible Ted produces in mass quantities. But the Taiwan-born Democrat whose district includes flaming liberal Beverly Hills which is home to many Hollywood stars got himself in a bit of trouble after he sent out a tweet to the well-mannered conservative Parkland student Kyle Kashuv inviting him to smoke some left coast weed.
Lieu has since apologized.
From Roll Call:
“While I am proud of California’s legal cannabis law, I can see why saying this to you can be misinterpreted because you are not 21,” Lieu wrote in reply to Kashuv about the post. “I hereby apologize. You should listen to your parents.”
The California Democrat has attracted a wide following on social media outside his own district for his wit and playful digs at President Donald Trump.
He routinely defends California from online detractors by noting the size of the state’s economy and its budget surplus, unemployment rate, and lax laws on recreational marijuana.
Lieu issued a similar invitation to Fox News host Tucker Carlson earlier in April.
What is it with this guy and getting high?
During a moment of silence for the slain Texas church victims, Lieu walked out.
From The Hill:
Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) says he walked out of a moment of silence on the House floor for victims of the mass shooting in Texas, saying he “will not be silent” after yet another massacre.
Lieu posted a video on his Facebook page Monday night after the moment of silence, during which he said he was “heartbroken about the children and adults that were killed in the worst mass shooting in Texas history this Sunday.”
“My colleagues right now are doing a moment of silence in the House of Representatives’ chambers,” Lieu said. “I respect their right to do that and I myself have participated in many of them.”
“But I can’t do this again, I’ve been to too many moments of silences. In just my short period in congress three of the worst mass shootings in us history have occurred. I will not be silent.”

I agree my prior tweet could be better. So here: I pray for the victims in TX. Also, screw the @NRA & can you help Dems take back the House.

More on the church shooting and how the Air Force messed up, per Fox News:
The U.S. Air Force didn’t report Texas church shooter Devin Kelley’s domestic violence conviction to the FBI — even though it was required by the Pentagon — leaving the door open for Kelley to buy weapons, officials said on Monday.
Kelley’s conviction wasn’t submitted to the FBI’s Criminal Justice Investigation Services Division for inclusion in the National Criminal Information Center database that is used to conduct background checks on would-be gun purchasers, Air Force spokesperson Ann Stefanek said.
The Holloman Air Force Base Office of Special Investigations — the base where Kelley was stationed — was supposed to enter his information into the database, according to a statement released Monday night by the Air Force.
