While tens of thousands participated in a March for our Lives demonstration in Parkland, Fla., Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump played a round of golf. The distance between the two locations is 50 miles.

The night before, President Trump signed a $1.3 trillion spending bill, none of which went to curb the use of weapons such as that used to mow down the 17 students and staff at the Parkland high school last month.

At Saturday’s march in Kansas City, Mayor Sly James addressed the 5,000-strong crowd, saying, “I have never been more proud of the people of Kansas City as I am … today,” and urged the crowd of young and old alike to carry their energy beyond the day by becoming politically active.
