Father of School Shooting Survivor Cameron Kasky Posted Implied Threat Against Marco Rubio Before CNN Town Hall

Jeff Kasky, the father of Parkland, Florida, school shooting survivor turned activist Cameron Kasky, posted an implied threat against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) just hours before his son engaged in a hateful extended verbal attack on Rubio at CNN’s town hall in Sunrise, Florida, about the shooting on Wednesday night.

Cameron Kasky likened Rubio to Nikolas Cruz, the expelled student from Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School who murdered seventeen of his former classmates and faculty on February 14.

Jeff Kasky wrote, “What’s a good amount of bail money to bring to a CNN Town Hall where Marco Rubio will be speaking? Asking for a friend.”

After midnight on the 15th, in the hours after the shooting, Jeff Kasky angrily assailed Rubio, saying, “How’s that $3.3million from the @NRA taste now, Li’l Marco? Not that you give a shit as long as the $ keeps on flowing in, you hypocritical little POS.”

According to Buzzfeed, that is the account of Cameron Kasky’s father.

The students are now responding in a way that teens fluent in social media could probably be expected to: They’re trolling back. Cameron Kasky, a 17-year-old survivor and organizer who came up with the name of their movement, “Never Again,” poked fun at the fake claims against Hogg in a tweet.

His dad, Jeff Kasky, is even joining in with his own sense of humor. He shared an old photo of his son reading the New York Times, and mockingly wrote, “What EIGHT YEAR OLD kid reads @nytimes on vacation?”

Cameron tweeted his dad back with trolly banter. “What father doesn’t force his EIGHT YEAR OLD to cut his hair?” before tagging the the tweet with the main hashtags of their movement.


Jeff Kasky also tweeted his blind hatred for President Donald Trump Wednesday morning, “Oh my God, are you serious? I didn’t obsess this much over girls when I was 16! STFU and continue leading the country over a cliff you teeny tiny small little man.”

Jeff Kasky also retweeted Jim Carrey’s sick Trump-hatred drawing that graphically invoked the massacre his son survived just days ago.


Two days before the shooting, on February 12, Jeff Kasky criticized Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), himself the grievously wounded survivor of an attempted mass shooting of Republican congressmen last year. Jeff Kasky wrote, “@SteveScalise doesn’t even BEGIN to understand separation between church & state, but that didn’t stop him from giving his address at the national prayer breakfast! LOL. Fools.”

The implied threat to Rubio has been up for nearly two days, Jeff Kasky has not commented on the implied threat since.
