In a video whose style employs scare tactics and lighting similar to those put out by National Rifle Association’s TV arm, Parkland survivor David Hogg calls out the president and the GOP for acquiescing to the gun lobby.
“What if our politicians weren’t the b*tch of the NRA?” Hogg asked before rolling a video of President Donald Trump telling fellow Republicans they’re “all afraid of the NRA.”
“What if we all voted and said this is not OK?” the Marjory Stoneman Douglas student asked in the video meant as a promotion for the March 24 event “March For Our Lives.”

Trump fumes over ‘tainted’ Roger Stone jury after his associate gets 40 months in prison

"It's totally tainted when you take a look," Trump said, referring to the forewoman and the jury. 'How can you have a person like this? She was an anti-Trump activist -- can you imagine this?"

Tucker Carlson sends a dangerous signal to Trump as the right-wing normalizes abject criminality
Wednesday night's Democratic primary debate was perhaps the most anticipated of the 2020 election cycle so far, and it did not disappoint, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts demonstrating her ninja skills at eviscerating arrogant billionaires, in the form of former New York City mayor and attempted nomination-purchaser Mike Bloomberg. It was wholesome fun. It made people feel good. It dominated the cable news cycle and the headlines.
