Cenk Uygur: Open carry nut bringing gun to school shows ‘f*cked up country we live in now’

Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur ripped a Michigan man on Wednesday for going to court to demand that he be allowed to carry a pistol openly at his daughter’s elementary school.

“I know that you’re a guy who can’t wait to use it, ’cause you’re a lunatic who likes to show his gun around everywhere,” Uygur said of Kenneth Herman. “This is the f*cked up country we live in.”

As MLive.com reported, Genessee County Circuit Court Judge Archie Hayman ruled on Monday that Herman may carry his firearm into Edgerton Elementary, citing a state law that allows concealed-carry permit holders like himself to do so. School officials had previously kicked Herman off campus on multiple occasions for doing so.

According to the Detroit Free Press, the Clio Area School District voted unanimously on Tuesday to appeal the ruling, with Superintendent Fletcher Spears calling on state lawmakers to make state laws less ambiguous, thus cutting off arguments like Herman’s.

Uygur called the loophole “weird” and described it as a symptom of the country’s insanity.

“If you had told me years ago, ‘At some point in America we’ll devolve to the point where they’re letting parent bring guns to elementary schools,’ I would say that sounds fanciful,” he said. “But everything that we thought couldn’t happen has happened.”

For her part, Kasparian wanted to know why Herman would insist on bringing his gun to his daughter’s school.

“He can’t leave the gun in the car for two to five minutes so he can go pick up his daughter and go home. Why do you want to carry a gun on campus so badly?” she said, before adding, “There’s no reason for this other than, ‘I’m a gun nut, I want to make a point about how much I love guns. I freaking masturbate to my guns every day.'”

Doctor on Fox News begs red states to brace for virus: ‘People are dying because we weren’t prepared’

A New York City emergency room doctor who recovered from Ebola said this week that he fears the coronavirus outbreak even more.

Craig Spencer of Columbia University Medical Center confirmed to Fox News that New York hospitals look like a war zone.

"I survived Ebola and I fear COVID, I fear coronavirus," Spencer said. "There are a lot of lessons we learned [from Ebola]... And unfortunately, a lot of those lessons have been forgotten. What I think has happened is it's left us all vulnerable to a pandemic like the coronavirus and what we're seeing on the frontlines, it's dire."

"People, unfortunately, are dying because we weren't prepared," he continued. "And I just want to share the message that we're seeing this here in New York City, I'm seeing it in my hospital, I'm seeing it in all hospitals around New York City, we're not prepared. And I want to make sure that the message gets shared with everyone across the country."

A Michigan doctor on Wednesday painted a frightening picture of the coronavirus pandemic's impact on her home city of Detroit.

In an interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto and Poppy Harlow, Dr. Teena Chopra said that Detroit's medical system was getting overwhelmed at the moment.

"The resources are poor," she said of her situation at the Detroit Medical Center. "36 percent of the population are below the poverty line. Lack of education, lack of access to clean water supply -- I think all of these factors are social determinants and play a big role. that's why we're becoming the next epicenter with the trends we are seeing."
