Television personality Chelsea Handler had harsh words for the Republican Party following a deadly shooting at a south Florida high school on Wednesday.

At least 15 people were killed and many more injured in a mass shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL reportedly perpetrated by a 19-year-old former student.

Handler, a comedian and former talk show host, tweeted that Republicans have blood on their hands because of their reluctance to pass gun reform laws and willingness to take money from the National Ridle Association.

Trump said he was monitoring the tragedy as it unfolded and was in touch with Florida Governor Rick Scott. He issued a statement of condolence via Twitter.

“My prayers and condolences to the families of the victims of the terrible Florida shooting,” Trump tweeted. “
