It was a very powerful town hall today BUT I am still bitter that Zucker gave it to Tapper.

And to the person who said Jake goes everywhere these days unlike anderson, where has he gone? Anderson was in Parkland while Jake was on vacation. Anderson was in Vegas, Texas, Puerto Rico. Tapper only stays in the studio. And networks with politicians/other media people. Which is why he has the contacts. And yes, I know that he is a brilliant political journalist, but field/disaster reporting is Anderson's thing. Why did he even stay on at CNN if he won't even get that anymore?

WELL HERE, HERE, FOR DONALD, NOT MY PRESIDENT, TRUMP. 'ALL TEACHERS SHOULD HAVE GUNS.' YES, THAT WOULD FIX THE PROBLEM DOUCHE BAG, AND ALL DEMOCRACIES SHOULD HAVE SOMEONE AS STUPID AS YOU TO SHOW THEM HOW STUPID "THEY ARE."
OBVIOUSLY YOU HAVE NEVER TAUGHT PUBLIC SCHOOL SO LET'S MAKE BELIEVE IVANKA HAD A REAL JOB AND WAS AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TEACHER. WHEN WOULD BE THE PROPER TIME FOR HER TO USE HER WEAPON: WHEN SHE'S TAKING HER THIRD GRADERS TO THE BATHROOM, THE LIBRARY, THE GYM, THE LUNCHROOM, THE ART CLASS, THE MUSIC CLASS, OR ON THE ANNUAL FIELD TRIP?? JUST TELL ME WHEN AND I'LL BE SURE TO LOCK MY WEAPON AWAY SO NO GRIMY LITTLE FINGERS THINK IT IS A TOY. I BETTER "LAWYER UP NOW."

Loved seeing parents and students forcefully take on the exceedingly vile scum that is NRA mouthpiece Dana Loesch--she is soulless and CNN shouldn't put her on their air any longer. And Jake Tapper saying she should be 'respected' was disgusting. A big NO to that. And spare me the praise Rubio is getting for showing up in a tough environment and listening to his constituents--that's HIS JOB. I don't trust that Rubio will follow through on any of the concessions he made, but he's now on record for it. Maybe some of the people who attended who are for gun rights but with sensible restrictions will finally realize that voting for GOPers like Rubio and others is the problem and will vote for a Dem with a bad rating from the NRA in the midterms instead. I don't trust Rubio or any other GOP rep as far as I can throw them.

I agree with Pragya, Anderson should've hosted it for all the reasons she stated.

Sweetie there are other people at CNN just as qualified or more so to handle these things. He is no longer the golden boy, that went out with Jon Klein.

IF TRUTH BE TOLD AC DOES ENOUGH HOSTING. IT IS TIME FOR PEOPLE LIKE JAKE TAPPER TO HOST.
HAVING SAID THAT, HE DID A FAIRLY DECENT JOB ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT. IT WAS A ROUGH CROWD BUT IN A GOOD WAY. AC IS AT TIMES, WAY TOO QUIET TO CONTROL A GROUP SO LARGE, BUT ORDERLY.
SEEING REASONABLE PEOPLE SPEAKING ABOUT A HUGE PROBLEM IN THIS COUNTRY WAS 'AWESOME' AND I HATE THAT WORD.
DANA LOESCH WAS ON THE OFFENSIVE AND THAT IS A GOOD THING, AS MARTHA WOULD SAY.
AND HER BOSS MAN, WAYNE LA PIERRE, LET'S REPEAT HIS NAME SINCE HE'S BEEN CALLING THE "SHOTS" FOR YEARS. WOW, WHAT A PUN, WAS ON THE OFFENSIVE AS WELL. WHAT A SPINNER. WE HAVE TO INTRODUCE HIM TO DITZLE CONWAY, IN THE WHITE HOUSE. WHAT A PAIR! DID YOU KNOW THERE WERE "GUN FREE ZONES?" YES, INDEED. SO THE MENTAL GUY SUSPECT WOULD HAVE WHAT? NOT LOADED UP AND SAID "WAIT. THIS IS GUN FREE ZONE. I HAVE TO RELOAD ELSE WHERE." OH WAYNE, YOU HAVE GOT TO DO BETTER THAN THAT. EVEN I CAN SEE THROUGH YOU.
