The Mainstream Media helped push a false claim by the Dad of a Parkland victim.
Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended. Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg’s dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence.

The dad also tweeted this yesterday:
I will be at Kavanaugh hearings and I hope to play a role in ensuring that this man does not become the next Supreme Court Justice. https://t.co/6oC7OPlyB8

Here are the responses from the left and Mainstream Media:
I am so very, very sorry Fred this happened.

Fred Guttenberg, father of Parkland victim, Jaime, tries to shakes hands with Brett Kavanaugh: “My daughter was murdered at Parkland.”

However, this is Fake News:
Fred Guttenberg, who lost his daughter in the tragic Parkland shooting, approached Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and claimed that Kavanaugh refused to shake his hand.
As can be seen in this video clip, security immediately intervened and moved Kavanaugh away. pic.twitter.com/RertGJ3A9m
