U.S. Rep. Syr­ian refugee and Os­car win­ner to name but a few. The big­gest ova­tion went to 79-year-old Waters, D-Calif., who de­lighted the crowd — in­clud­ing hun­dreds of cheer­ing young girls — with a rous­ing speech that ended on a very po­lit­i­cal note. “Im­peach him,” she ex­horted the au­di­ence. “Im­peach 45! Im­peach 45!”

NBC News says it has fired its top tal­ent booker, for “in­ap­pro­pri­ate con­duct” with more than one woman at the net­work. Zimmerman used to be in charge of ar­rang­ing guests for the “Today” show, but in 2014 was pro­moted to vice pres­i­dent and led the be­hind-the-scenes unit re­spon­si­ble for such book­ings at all NBC News pro­grams. The net­work didn’t give any de­tails Tues­day about Zimmerman’s be­hav­ior, only that he vi­o­lated com­pany pol­icy. The net­work acted in re­sponse to in­ter­nal com­plaints.
