  • Survivors and parents of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting attended a listening session at the White House on Wednesday.
  • A photo shows that President Donald Trump was using a crib sheet of questions to ask the group.
  • One of the points isn’t a question but the statement, “I hear you.”

Several students and parents affected by school shootings including last week’s massacre at a high school in Parkland, Florida, attended a listening session with President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday.

But during the meeting an Associated Press photographer managed to capture the crib notes Trump was holding to guide him through the session.

From the photograph, it appears there were at least five points, including:

1.) “What would you most want me to know about your experience?”

2.) “What can we do to help you feel [unclear]?”

And the last visible point on the sheet was not a question, but seemingly a reminder to be empathetic: “5.) I hear you.”

The notes were likely useful to Trump as the students and adults attending didn’t hold back.

Andrew Pollack, the father of 18-year-old Meadow Pollack who was killed after being shot nine times by the 19-year-old gunman Nikolas Cruz, said he was “pissed” that little is being done to protect students.
