Donald Trump Jr. likes Parkland shooting conspiracy theories on Twitter

The top trending video on YouTube on Wednesday morning was a conspiracy theory that Florida school shooting survivor David Hogg was an actor.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High student David Hogg, who witnessed the massacre in which 17 students and teachers were killed, is one of a number of youngsters to have called for tougher gun control laws in the wake of the latest mass shooting at a USA school.

Student David Hogg has been outspoken since the shooting, calling on lawmakers to take action and make efforts towards gun control.

In the wake of Parkland, students whose school was shot up have become vocal advocates for gun control, having grown up in a decade where mass shootings have happened with frightening regularity.

"I got on with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and I was proud of it - and I still am". "That's not OK, and that's not acceptable and we need to fix that".

David Hogg told Cooper that he was ripping President Trump because "I think I have to take it to him because politicians won't".

Either he has been "coached" by his father, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent; or he is a "pawn" for anti-gun campaigners; or, the most far-fetched, he is not a victim but a "crisis actor", paid to travel to disaster sites to argue against stricter gun laws.

"You're the president. You're supposed to bring this nation together, not divide us".

True Pundit published a story this week, claiming Hogg and his father, who is a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent, were working with the mainstream media to prop up the Federal Bureau of Investigation. How dare you? Children are dying, and their blood is on your hands because of that. "If we don't take action now, more children are going to die". Take action. Work with Congress.

"I'm just so sorry that these people have lost their faith in America, because I know I certainly haven't", Hogg added before claiming he was in favor of the Second Amendment.

"It's immature, rude, and inhuman for these people to destroy the people trying to prevent the death of the future of America because they won't".

Directly addressing Donald Trump during an interview with Sky News in the aftermath of the massacre, the 17-year-old told the President to "realise the true gravity of the situation".

"I witnessed this event, why are you guys doing this to me?" Facebook features dozens of videos, some viewed tens of thousands of times, claiming the teenagers being interviewed by the media have been spotted before, or are not reacting the way they should in the wake of a major tragedy.
