Orlando Shooting Survivor Outraged That Killer's Father Attended Hillary Clinton Campaign Event
From Click Orlando:
Ceballo wasn't only surprised, he was angry.
"I'm outraged," he said. "For him to come back to Orlando, where his son created devastation, was also mind-blowing. If I would have known that, I would have not come."
Ceballo attended the rally as a "plus one" guest with Hansen, who was contacted and invited by someone whom he presumed was from the Clinton campaign.
Afterward, the two went backstage, met Clinton and took pictures with her, holding a sign with her new campaign message, "Standing Together."
But Ceballo is now questioning the slogan, wondering how the Clinton campaign didn't notice that Mateen's father was allowed to be in the center of the crowd behind the podium at which Clinton stood and addressed the Pulse massacre that left 49 dead and 53 others injured.
"I know how many people, family members, loved ones and friends are still grieving," Clinton said during the rally.
"Hillary has been supporting the LGBT community, she's been to Pulse, you know? To find out (Mateen's father) was there, it's really disappointing," Ceballo said.
"I'm not happy about it at all. I feel, like, let down."
