- Editors of The Nation [Editors of established magazine]
You’ll never see a ‘Black Lives Matter’ t-shirt [at a Republican convention].
- D.L. Hughley [Comedian and Actor]
On Donald Trump:

- Anne Applebaum [Washington Post Columnist, Author]

[Student protesters] putting themselves out there so publicly, with their future on the line, is worthy of adult support.
