LISTEN: Radio Show Host Says Impeachment Is So Boring, He Wishes A School Shooting Would Happen
Sometimes people accidently slip up and put their foot in their mouth by saying something that they immediately regret saying. This is exactly what happened to a Denver, CO radio show host.
Chuck Bonniwell made remark that the impeachment hearing mess is so boring now that’s he’d prefer a school shooting to happen so they could talk about that instead.
According to Fox News,
A Denver talk radio show has been canceled after one of its cohosts said on air that he hoped “a nice school shooting” would interrupt news coverage of “the never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump.”
Chuck Bonniwell, cohost of the Chuck & Julie show on 710 KNUS, made the comments roughly 22 minutes into the show Tuesday afternoon — drawing backlash from the families of some Colorado shooting victims.
“All right, Chuck Bonniwell, Julie Hayden here, a little after 1:30, talking about the never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump,” Bonniwell said, according to the Colorado Times Recorder. “You know, you wish for a nice school shooting.”
Bonniwell has a long history of making crude comments.
Bonniwell’s comment came as KNUS is facing accusations that a staffer is a Nazi. KNUS Management is reportedly conducting an internal investigation, and the producer has denied posting pro-Nazi comments on social media. The results have not been announced.
Bonniwell, who’s a steadfast Trump supporter and publishes the Cherry Creek/Glendale Chronicle, has a long track record of comments that draw media scrutiny.
Last year, during Jared Polis’ successful race to become Colorado’s governor, Bonniwell said Polis has the support of the “gay mafia.”
During the same election, he called state Sen. Faith Winter of Westminster, “an overweight, unpleasant, vicious, amoral human being.”
A few years ago, Bonniwell told his listeners that Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, who was body slammed by Rep. Greg Gianforte, was a “little jerk” and a “metrosexual.” (Colorado Times Recorder)
Fast forward to about the 1:30 mark to hear the crude remark.
