Lots of people talking about President Trump meeting with kids from the Florida school and CNN’s town hall. Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) took the time in her latest column telling us all about an amazing new breakthrough to reduce mass shootings… wait for it… Get rid of illegal immigrants.
There have been about 34 mass shootings since 2000. Forty-seven percent – 16 – were committed by first- and second-generation immigrants, i.e. people who never would have been here but for Teddy Kennedy’s 1965 immigration act.
She goes on to list the names of those that would not have been able to been able to have done a mass shooting because they wouldn’t be here in the first place. Which on its face is correct.
Seth Abramson (@SethAbramson) chimed in on the student that asked Marco Rubio to turn in all his money raised by the NRA. While Abramson states that he understands rules of decorum, he would treat his kid with pride and an ice cream for standing up to Rubio.
This Senator, on this topic, at this moment, in this forum?
A smile, a hug, a statement of support, an expression of pride, and ice cream. https://t.co/AYKNopHI6W

The problem with these mass shootings is that no matter what you do you are still going to have evil people doing evil things. The only thing that I can think that makes sense is that the culture has changed enough (and there are multiple things that have changed in our culture) that we now have to be concerned about these things. One thing I’m not hearing in any of the discussions is splitting up some of these bigger schools, getting class size smaller, and therefore having more teacher/student interaction and more focus on these kids. I have to believe that this is more effective on larger schools than smaller. Is there anyone against smaller class sizes? That would be one of the only things that I think a federal or state school could do that would have broad approval.
If you disagree with me, you’re obviously a Russian bot. Either way, have a great day.
In any case, the article goes on to say that there’s no basis for Schiff’s claim or Russia bots, as far as Facebook and Twitter are concerned. That doesn’t stop the media from reporting it over and over.
And Lisa Mei Crowley (@LisaMei62) (who spends a lot of time putting together threads of Q postings) espouses the idea that instead of Trump having a note to make sure that he gets across to the kids at the meeting that he hears them– something that definitely needs to be stressed– he was actually communicating to the followers of the Q board. How do they get this? The number of the item on the list is 5, Trump is using 5 fingers to hold the paper, and Q told them to read 5:5.
Was Q's post last night with [SIG_5:5_READ] intended to let us know that .@realDonaldTrump was signaling that he reads us loud and clear by holding his note pad in full view of the press cameras with 5 fingers visible and "I hear you" as #5 on his list? Could be! pic.twitter.com/Q1uxCYO0bK

I think this is quite the stretch, but wouldn’t doubt Q to confirm this to be true. To me, the most interesting part of this is that Trump wears shirts that have “45” on the cuff. I’m sure the idea that he brought questions and statements to make is fodder all over the place– including a take where he brings this to an interview with Mueller with “No comment” as a list.
