Susan Bro, mother of Heather Heyer, who was killed while protesting white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend, was interviewed by Robin Roberts on “Good Morning America” on Friday morning.

She had some harsh words for President Donald Trump:

ROBERTS: We understand that President Trump has reached out. Have you talked to him directly yet?

BRO: I have not, and now I will not. ... I saw an actual clip of him at the press conference equating the protesters like Ms. Heyer with the KKK and the white supremacists.

Bro has been remarkably strong this week after being thrust into the national spotlight. This interview is no different.

We'll see if it has any effect on the president's view of last weekend's events. I can't imagine him feuding with the grieving parents of a dead child ... oh, right.
