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.
Watch this brazen attempt to mislead viewers by @CNN’s @NewDay host Alisyn Camerota, hailing @TedDeutch for the #StopSchoolViolenceAct, (the very bill that @MarcoRubio has been fighting for non stop for weeks) while criticizing Rubio for focusing on other priorities. pic.twitter.com/cvfdiEVw5f
