Tonight’s item to get things started:
Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) swiped at President Trump on Saturday while attending the “March for Our Lives” rally in Washington, D.C., calling for action on gun violence. Asked about estimated attendance at the rally, which was expected to draw hundreds of thousands of people, Van Hollen said, “I can tell you for sure, it’s larger than the Trump inauguration.” While exact turnout figures have yet to be released, organizers obtained a permit for 500,000 people to rally in D.C. around Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House. Hundreds of similar marches were planned worldwide.
I’d say at least one million people in the streets of DC! Historic! This photo doesn’t even show the full breadth of it. Thank you Parkland students and kids everywhere. You have made it clear to the adults: “Either join us or get out of the way. We are here & we are coming.” pic.twitter.com/pjdBTsyz8J
