CNN recently hosted a town hall that was extremely anti-gun and clearly held an agenda to push gun-control.
During this town hall ‘discussion’ several of the Parkland high school shooting survivors were invited to the event. One such student was Colton Haab.
However, he didn’t play the game CNN was trying to push. According to Haab, CNN fed him a scripted question for the student to ask during the town hall event.
Drew Griffin, who works for the network, has now gone on the attack and has claimed the school shooting survivor is a liar.
It all started after President Trump criticized CNN, on Thursday, for their fake news reporting. Quoting Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who interviewed Haab Thursday night, Trump tweeted:
“‘School shooting survivor says he quit @CNN Town Hall after refusing scripted question.’ @TuckerCarlson,” adding, “Just like so much of CNN, Fake News. That’s why their ratings are so bad! MSNBC may be worse.”

Haab is the JROTC student who saved dozens of his fellow classmates during the mass shooting.
Moments after Trump tweeted this out, Griffin came out swinging. He accused the young hero of lying.
Haab hasn’t backed down from his claim that CNN’s town hall was rigged with anti-gun questions.
“They had taken what I had wrote and what I had briefed on and talked about, and they actually wrote the question for me,” the student stated during a Fox News interview.
“At that point Haab chose to drop out of the Jake Tapper-hosted event, which critics have described as an anti-gun ‘show trial.’ Tapper is facing widespread criticism for his mishandling of the one-sided event and has yet to apologize for his silence as his audience booed a rape survivor,” reports Breitbart.
The report continued, “Haab’s allegation against CNN echoes previous scandals where the network has been caught using left-wing plants on numerous occasions. CNN is currently embroiled in a credibility crisis due to multiple fake news reports — some of which have resulted in significant backlash, forcing the network to retract.”
