Fox News host Shepard Smith stated the President was “co-opting” the same tone as the NRA on possible solutions to shooting which happens within schools.
Smith stated, “I thought it was just interesting kinda around the edges. Wayne LaPierre, the spokesperson—and that’s what he is—for the NRA, which works, by the way, for the gun manufacturers—Wayne LaPierre said we need to ‘harden’ our schools. I’d never heard the president use that word, and I searched for it, you know. And then after Wayne LaPierre said it, the president said it five or six times, ‘We need to harden the schools.’ He is co-opting their language.”
