CNN's New Day on 30 January 2017 trumpeted Kal Penn's online fundraiser for refugees and gave him a platform to attack President Trump over his recent executive order on immigration. Penn underlined that "the Women's March was a great example of coming together and standing up against the, sort of, tyranny that we're experiencing right now." The former Obama administration official later cited how his fundraiser was inspired by "the lessons we learned from Barack and Michelle Obama: when they go low, we go high."
