Marin County 13-year-old brings White House press secretary to tears

Notoriously tough White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was close to tears after facing a hard question from a young student.

"Y$3 ou guys make me feel like fighting back". But the child journalist had something else on his mind.

The student, who several White House reporters identified as Benje Choucroun, 13, was at the White House covering a children's fitness event, but was called on as he sat among the White House press corps.

'Specifically can you tell me what the administration has done and will do to prevent these senseless tragedies?' he asked.

At Blantyre, moderate flooding is expected at the French Broad River later Wednesday, the governor's office said. Officials say over 200 people sought refuge in six shelters that were open in McDowell County overnight.


Despite getting choked up as she responded, Sanders couldn't provide any specific details as to what President Donald Trump has lined up to curb gun violence.

"This administration takes it seriously", Sanders said struggling to continue, before adding that administration was discussing ways to "do every single thing within our power to protect kids in our schools and to make them feel safe and make their parents feel good about dropping them off".

A nice sentiment. But given the fact that this administration's biggest solution to prevent school shootings is to arm teachers with guns, we don't think they're much concerned about making kids and parents feel safer.

A woman who has a grandchild at the school says she hates the idea of these kids practicing school shooting drills.

On Wednesday, Barr tweeted: "I just wish ABC had not thrown two of the greatest actors in the world out with me-Laurie and John". Barr also seemed stunned by Gilbert's admonition, writing, "Wow! unreal." in response to Gilbert.


The commission, which is charged with examining gun restrictions, changes to education policy and the effect of violent video games, is headed by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and includes Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

Sarah Sanders doubles down on demanding an apology for President Trump from ABC's Bob Iger for a number of things including the network hiring Keith Olbermann and Jemele Hill calling President Trump a racist.

In a written statement, Lucinda Lee Katz, Marin Country Day head administrator, said, "As part of our mission, Marin Country Day School nurtures our students to be critical thinkers and we challenge each student to envision and work toward a better world".

Their activism comes on the heels of the March for Our Lives gun reform rally in March that drew hundreds of thousands of people to Washington, D.C., and was organized by survivors of the February 14 Parkland, Florida, school shooting that killed 17 people. "But the story here is that school shootings need to be stopped, and that's what people need to focus on".
