The Morning Briefing: Kill the NRA, Mueller Gets Another One and Much, Much More

Good Wednesday morning.

Here's what's on the President's agenda today:

  • The President receives his daily intelligence briefing
  • President Trump discusses the Economic Report of the President with the Council of Economic Advisers
  • The President has lunch with the Administrator of the Small Business Administration
  • President Trump meets with trade union leaders
  • The President hosts a listening session with high school students and teachers

Florida shooting

Today, the President will hold a listening session with school teachers and high school students about gun violence. CNN is also holding a pro-gun control event masquerading as a town hall this evening with students and Florida politicians. "On Wednesday, CNN will air a nationally televised town hall to be held with students, parents, community members as well as some of Florida's politicians, called 'Stand Up: The Students of Stoneman Douglas Demand Action.'"

Speaking of propaganda, CBS News told its audience that its harder to buy cold medicine than it is to buy an "assault rifle." That was debunked quickly.

Yesterday, Florida's legislature rejected a ban "on many semiautomatic guns and large capacity magazines" while groups of students headed to the capital "to turn their grief into political action."

Hollywood liberals, the ones left after the sexual harassers and deviants were purged, will be donating money to the anti-Second Amendment march planned for the end of March.

Oprah is "joining forces" with George and Amal Clooney. So is Jeffrey Katzenberg.

After the Hollywood power couple announced Tuesday they will be marching and donating in support of student survivors of the Parkland, Fla. shooting rampage, Oprah and Katzenberg said they would match their contribution.

Evidence continues to pile up that the perpetrator of the shooting was an extremely dangerous individual with warning signs repeatedly ignored by the authorities.

Fellow student Ariana Lopez tells [ABC News' Victor] Oquendo that she and her friends alerted school officials on numerous occasions about the danger posed by Nikolas Cruz, including threats to kill “our parents, our friends, boyfriends and girlfriends.”

The school had twenty-five separate disciplinary actions against Cruz before the shooting, including a suspension for the fight seen in the video. Nevertheless, superintendent of the school district Robert Runcie claimed that the staff at Douglas High School never raised the issue of Cruz or his potential threat to student safety with him.

One student you won't see too much on the MSM is Brandon Minoff, an 18-year-old senior at the Douglas High School who said, “I wholeheartedly believe that the media is politicizing this tragedy. It seems that gun control laws is the major topic of conversation rather than focusing on the bigger issue of 17 innocent lives being taken at the hands of another human.”
