Chuck Bonniwell: "Nice school shooting" guy..So where did he get the idea to say whatever he wants?

...He didn't get it from me, and he didn't get it from Mr. Obama, or Mr. Biden, or any other Democrat. I wonder who he got the idea from?..I just can't figure it out? ...

....And if you believe that one, maybe I could sell you a bridge across the Pacific Ocean to Japan? Let's make a deal....

Conservative radio host wishes for a ‘nice school shooting’ to distract from impeachment

By Katie Shepherd

As Chuck Bonniwell welcomed listeners back from a break on his Colorado talk-radio show just after 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, he laughed as he introduced a segment discussing the “never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump.”

“You know,” he said, “you wish for a nice school shooting” to interrupt the nonstop impeachment coverage.

His wife and co-host, Julie Hayden, immediately jumped in and cut him off.

“No, no, don’t even — don’t even say that,” she said. “No, don’t even say that. Don’t call us, Chuck didn’t say that.”

Bonniwell quickly tried to back off from the statement, saying he would want a shooting “in which no one would be hurt,” but the damage had already been done. By the end of the day, the couple’s conservative show was canceled by the Aurora, Colo., radio station 710 KNUS.

“Given the history of school violence that has plagued our community, 710 KNUS confirms that an inappropriate comment was made on the ‘Chuck & Julie’ show by co-host Chuck Bonniwell,” the station said in a statement Wednesday evening. “A programming decision was made to end the program immediately.”

2. I hope the jerk never gets another job anytime. Making fun of "school shootings" is disgusting

one would be hurt,”

Apparently, he's OK with a school shooting in which kids are scared out of their wits and traumatized. What an asshole.

4. I've said and done some nonsensical things. It's human nature. But I never did any of that on

radio or tv and if I had I would been fired. Good outcome there for Chuck.

5. Another example of "PC culture run amok" (Sarcasm - just in case).

I am sure there will be right wingers out there though, who will take up the banner of "protecting free speech" because we just want to destroy people.

This guy was obviously an idiot. His wife, if she stays with him after this stunt, is also dumb. If it comes out of your mouth, on a radio show, then you have obviously done at least a cursory filter on it. This guy is sick and stupid. So brainwashed into right wing politics that he considered that some school children being shot was a welcome alternative to having his hero Trump be held accountable for his offenses against the Constitution.
