CNN host Chris Cuomo stated Thursday that the U.S. is the “scourge of the world” when it comes to school shootings.
“The president has the hashtag MAGA, Make America Great Again. He is supposed to be a change agent. We are the scourge of the world when it comes to these. Nobody is worse than we are. How does that not make the MAGA agenda?”
Cuomo made these comments in the wake of a shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday that resulted in 17 deaths. (RELATED: Here’s Everything We Know About The Florida High School Shooting Suspect)
Since the shooting, many in the establishment media have been openly calling for gun control. CNN’s Don Lemon said late Wednesday that people who didn’t want to talk about gun control in the wake of the shooting needed to “shut up.”
“Listen, you can save it–people who are saying, ‘Oh, it’s not the time to talk about guns’ or whatever. Yes, it is. Shut up. I don’t want to hear it. It absolutely is,” he said. (RELATED: CNN’s Don Lemon Tells People Who Don’t Want To Talk About Gun Control To ‘Shut Up’)
