If you’ll remember, it was just one short week after the deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Fla., that CNN hosted its town hall on the shooting, which of course looked like the Two Minutes Hate from “1984” whenever Dana Loesch or Sen. Marco Rubio tried to speak — while all the while Sheriff Scott Israel sat there blaming the NRA, knowing his school resource officer and backup never entered the building to confront the shooter.

Now CNN is having another town hall, this one featuring Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke. CNN notes that Sen. Ted Cruz was invited as well, but he’ll be skipping this one.

Hmm … why would Cruz decline such an invitation?


Every media love letter comparing him to a Kennedy ought to, really.
