Democrat President Joe Biden was heckled in the White House Rose Garden by an angry father during a Monday address.
CNN reporter Kaitlan Collins said: “In the Rose Garden just now, President Biden was interrupted while touting the recently passed gun safety law by Manuel Oliver, whose son was killed in the Parkland shooting.”

Oliver made it clear on CNN earlier in the morning that he thought the bill Biden was promoting today was not worth celebrating.
Despite his prior comments, Biden’s team let Oliver in to embarrass the president anyway.

“Well, it’s been a while that I’ve been calling out that using the word celebration, getting together, is like we’re going to a party, to a wedding today.
“Meanwhile, you can see these mothers in Uvalde that just saw how their kids were massacred inside a school.
“So, for me, it’s not only not enough, and you know very well what I’ve been preaching for.
“Even the president asked for more and it’s not happening.
“So, I really wish there was more in this package of bills.
“And I will do whatever I can to get more in this package of bills.
“This is not the beginning or the end.
“A lot of people are saying this is the beginning.
“No, this is part of a process.
“There was no reason for this event to be called as it’s called right now,” Oliver said.
