Ingraham on March for Our Lives: 'Political Theater Lacking in Substance'
Laura Ingraham called out the "political theater" of this past weekend's March for Our Lives demonstrations.
Thousands of people took to the streets in cities across the country on Saturday, calling for action against gun violence.
Ingraham noted that Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips spoke to several young demonstrators in Washington, D.C., asking what changes they wanted to see, and he got mixed messages.
Some protesters called for a complete ban on assault weapons -- although they could not define what an assault weapon is -- while others called for the Second Amendment to be repealed.

"This is the problem with political theater lacking substance," Ingraham said. "Lots of people show up and they applaud for Lin-Manuel [Miranda] and Amy Schumer, but what are they marching for? To repeal the Second Amendment? To ban weapons they can't even define? The truth is, they don't really know."
She added that after watching the "maniacal, wall-to-wall coverage" of the marches, it seemed like the media was trying to save the "political lives" of top Democrats Rep. Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer.
