- Jake Tapper will moderate a live CNN town hall with students, parents, teachers, survivors of last week's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gun violence/mass shooting, tonight at 9pm ET/6pm PT/2am UK.
- Florida Rep. Ted Deutch (D), Sen. Bill Nelson (D), Sen. Marco Rubio (n-R-a), Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel, and n-R-a national mouthpiece Dana Loesch have accepted CNN's invitation to participate.
- A very insecure Putin Puppet # 45 and Florida Gov. Lord Voldemort both chickened out, as expected.
George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives.’ These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) February 20, 2018
Dear Student Activists From Stoneman Douglas,— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) February 21, 2018
Keep doing what you’re doing. The fact the the right wing “media” is attacking you means what you’re doing is working.
We are standing by your side.
With Love, Support and Appreciation,
I love how people are saying these kids are actors. Have you *seen* a high school play?— Rachel Dratch (@TheRealDratch) February 21, 2018
They’re attacking those Parkland kids because they’re afraid of them. They’re calling them liars because they can tell people believe them. And people believe those kids because they’re telling truths.— Andy Richter (@AndyRichter) February 21, 2018
The NRA thinking: "They're just kids. They'll get all excited about their proms or their Facebook walls or something; maybe some new singer or fashion trend. Don't worry. They'll forget."— Stephen King (@StephenKing) February 20, 2018
Not this time.

A Town Hall is a meeting of citizens + elected officials, NOT lobbyists. Under the guise of being unbiased, you give extremists like Loesch a platform, so a circus and high ratings follow.
It’s irresponsible. Act like journalists, not a reality show.
Imagine a grown man - the President of the United States no less - needing to hold a note reminding him to actually listen to kids talking to him about surviving a school shooting. https://t.co/dkuORIWUgl— billy eichner (@billyeichner) February 21, 2018
