As TGP’s Cassandra Fairbanks previously reported, Colton Haab opted out of participating in CNN’s anti-gun town-hall event on Wednesday evening — seemingly because his perspective does not fit the narrative they have been peddling.
CNN scripted their entire anti-gun town hall which was hosted by anti-gun Jake Tapper. Shocker.
Haab is the brave 17-year-old member of the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps who ushered 60 to 70 people to safety in an open JROTC room during the Parkland school shooting. The high school junior may have saved many lives by using the Kevlar sheets from the marksmanship program to try and protect his peers. His actions were so important that the US Military is currently considering awarding him with a JROTC Medal of Heroism.
Despite this 17-year-old’s heroism, CNN would not allow him to ask his prepared questions.“CNN had originally asked me to write a speech and questions and it ended up being all scripted,” Haab said.
Fake News CNN didn’t want any students to go off of their anti-gun script.
On Thursday, CNN responded to hero Colton Haab’s claim the anti-gun town hall was scripted in a statement via CNN public relations’ Twitter account.
CNN said, “There is absolutely no truth to this. CNN did not provide or script questions for anyone in last night’s town hall, nor have we ever.”
Very fake news CNN never scripts their town halls, just ask Donna Brazile.
On Thursday, Trump unleashed on fake news CNN for refusing hero Colton Haab a platform because he wouldn’t parrot their script. Trump then took a swipe at MSNBC.
Trump tweeted: “School shooting survivor says he quit @CNN Town Hall after refusing scripted question.” @TuckerCarlson. Just like so much of CNN, Fake News. That’s why their ratings are so bad! MSNBC may be worse.

Please, Mr. President don’t ever stop tweeting!
The Gateway Pundit was the first publication to point out that the students appeared to be regurgitating scripted lines as the liberal media interviewed them.
The students looked like they were being coached to push the anti-gun narrative.
The Gateway Pundit was on the receiving end of an all out onslaught from all sides for pointing this out; we stand by our reporting.
If CNN’s town hall was scripted, certainly their interviews with the students were as well. Case closed.
