Maxwell Frost predicts Donald Trump would ‘wipe his ass’ with pleas to stop gun violence

Maxwell Alejandro Frost
He dismissed concerns on Joe Biden's age, and said the Democrat cares more about making America safer.

U.S. Rep. Maxwell Frost said Donald Trump would wipe his rear end with pleas for change from gun violence survivors.

On a press call organized by President Joe Biden’s campaign, Frost criticized former President Trump for giving the keynote address to National Rifle Administration’s (NRA) Presidential Forum.

“We have Republican politicians like Donald Trump who are all too willing to stand by and watch kids senselessly die, because he’s bought and paid for by the NRA,” the Orlando Democrat said.

Frost said it’s especially alarming to see Trump schmooze with the gun lobby ahead of the sixth anniversary of the Parkland shooting. The school shooting, which unfolded on Feb. 14, 2018, left 17 dead at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High.

It also prompted Frost to launch of March For Our Lives, a youth-driven gun rights movement where Frost got his start as a political activist. He has since become the first Generation Z American elected to Congress.

“I’m 27 years old, and my life has been pretty much defined by seeing far too many folks in my generation shot down due to no gun laws,” he said.

Frost has worked closely with Biden on the creation of an Office of Gun Violence Prevention, and he serves on congressional Democrats’ Gun Violence Prevention Task Force. But he said Trump, who was President at the time of the Parkland shooting, simply doesn’t care about stopping gun violence as much as wooing extremist groups.

“I send a letter to President Joe Biden, he’s going to read it,” Frost said.

“The White House is going to reach out, they’re going to work with us to ensure that, No. 1, we’re heard, but No. 2, that our considerations and what we’re advocating for is actually listened to and that they act on it. If I sent a letter like that to President Trump, or former President Trump, he’ll wipe his ass with it.”

In addition to discussing gun policy, America’s youngest congress also addressed a frequent attack point for Biden, the President’s age. A day after a Special Counsel released a report raising questions about the 81-year-old’s memory, Frost dismissed that as less than revelatory.

“We know. President Biden is old, okay,” Frost said. “Yeah. It doesn’t sound like breaking news to me.”

    If Trump were to work within the confines of the US Constitution, Rep Frost is correct.

    However, if Trump declares the USA to be Trumplandia, and Trump has toadies in place next time around to make it work, everybody loses their guns within the first six months of the Declaration of Trumplandia taking effect.

    Newly empowered dictators always seize the gun. Always. Always. Always. Always. Always. Always.

    What if you’re a MAGA? Will Trump seize your guns? YES. Guns are guns. You might change your mind about him, and he doesn’t need you anymore, so kiss your AR collection adios in Trumplandia.

    Trump can reach his own ass? I don’t think he can.

    You cannot stop gun violence by disarming law abiding people. We have illicit drug distribution channels that seep into every pore of this country, and federal, state, and local law enforcement cannot stop it. Whether it’s Meth from Mexican labs or Fentanyl or fake Oxycontin from Chinese labs (via Mexico), we not only cannot stop it, we cannot stem the increasing rate of importation. If firearms were 100% outlawed and confiscated in the USA, these drug distribution systems would simply add firearms to their available product line. Then criminals would be free to prey upon Americans with no fear of self-defense or pushback. Nothing Frost supports would do anything to stop gang violence, which accounts for the vast majority of firearms-related homicides. It’s a utopian dream that outlawing firearms will lower crime, and it ignores the fact that there are truly bad people who will snuff out human life, sometimes recreationally, without losing a moments sleep over it.

    The dangers Christians present…each is capable of unprovoked violence and usually on fentanyl.

    I’d happily give up my two old hunting weapons to see MAGA dusarmed!
    The crying, nay wailing; then later the wimpering and sobbing! Such fun.
    I’d have squads of black Marines doing the pickups from holdouts

    Don’t say Ye. Max Frost is a pathetic loser with bad credit. A potty-mouthed intellectual juvenile. This is his big moment in the sun, so enjoy it because the sun is quickly setting.

      That’s quite a bit of ad hominem, which is evidently the only thing the GOP has left. Got any take on what Rep Frost said? No, you don’t, because he’s not wrong.

        Don’t Say Ye. You are projecting again. Max Frost is guilty of the very thing you are projecting onto me. No one cares what Max Frost thinks about anything, gun violence or the price of tea in China. No one cares.

          Dare I point out the obvious? HW cared enough to comment, and then HW cared enough to come back a day later for more comments.

          HW cares. I care. That’s two people who care.

          Therefore it’s not possible for “nobody” to care. Even if it was just HW that cared enough to comment, HW’s own comment would disprove his own comment that nobody cared. HW I do hope your head did not just explode.

    Ah, another one that devours the Kool Aid of citizen disarmament. A Communist no doubt who believes guns shoot themselves, that individual responsibility must never be used against a criminal, and that thinks police are an omnipresent force to protect good citizens at all times and places. The vermin youth who murder without remorse using any weapon of choice are often treated like spoiled kids and are released quickly from detainment. I submit these vermin youth, and any killer for that matter be executed for their crimes without delay. I submit that drug sellers also should be executed without delay Liberalism has turned society into a giant crime scene and its now time for law and order to return. Aftet the bodies of the vermin youth sentenced to death pile up, lets see how safe society soon becomes.

      Let’s have a guess about this return of law and order.

      It’ll be brought to us by old white people, but never brought to themselves, and the one leading the charge back to law and order will pardon himself of 91 felony counts the very second he can do that.

      Does that sound like the plan? AWESOME PLAN /s

    This guy needs to be voted out, he doesn’t have a clue about what he’s talking about.
