Well, there's a reason that Leftists like Oprah and George Clooney donated half a million dollars to the walkout. There's a reason that Leftists in Congress walked out to join teens—I mean, in addition to virtue-signaling and getting their faces in the press. There's a reason that Leftists on CNN and MSNBC didn't merely report the story but fawned all over the teens who spouted stuff while actually knowing little...
