‘I want a world without Islamists!’ Fox host gets massively triggered over student march and donates to NRA

Published

on

Fox News host Pete Hegseth on Sunday said that he was so upset by the students calling for gun control during the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C. that he reacted by spontaneously donating to the National Rifle Association.

The morning after students from around the country rallied against school shootings, Hegseth explained why the demonstration moved him to give cash to the NRA.

During a segment about March for Our Lives, Fox & Friends co-hosts blasted the entire movement because one poster allegedly maligned Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) religion.

“We can’t talk about guns in a rational way in this country,” co-host Abby Huntsman complained. “Either you support the NRA and ‘killing children’ or everyone is ‘taking all of our guns away.'”

“I feel for these kids,” Hegseth opined. “They have a right to speak out and they should. But forgive me if I don’t want a lesson on the Second Amendment from a 16 year old. Forgive me if I don’t want to watch a 9 year old tell me that her dream is a world without guns.”

“I want a world without Islamists!” the Fox News host exclaimed. “I wish that was true too. It’s just not the case. The reality is the Second Amendment is not about hunting. It’s not about self defense only. It’s about free people and checks on a tyrannical government in addition to all those other things.”

The Fox News host continued: “They shouldn’t be giving me lessons on the Second Amendment. They should be in civics class… I watched that and you know what my reaction was? Honestly? I donated to the NRA this morning.”

Huntsman sighed.

“I’m serious!” Hegseth shouted. “We live in a free country where we have a debate about first principles and, to me, that’s one of those first principles, the First Amendment, the right to march and be heard. But just like my right to defend myself and my family and my country with the firearm more or less of my choice.”

‘Martyrdom for snowflakes’: CNN analyst knocks Republicans who desperately wanted to be arrested at protest

Published

on

CNN host Don Lemon reported Wednesday evening that many Republicans wanted to be arrested for storming the secure room where the House Intelligence Committee depositions were taking place.

Fox News reporter Chad Pergram tweeted that he was told "there was never any chance [members] who barged into SCIF would be arrested by [capital police], but some members asked to be arrested. They wanted the optic of being frog-marched out of the SCIF in front of TV cameras. That would help w/GOP narrative of Dem process abuse."

Commentator Wajahat Ali called it the perfect example of "martyrdom for snowflakes."

Seth Meyers says Republicans storming classified room looked like a protest at a pharmacy that ran out of Viagra

Published

"Late Night" comedian Seth Meyers couldn't help but lambast the far-right Republicans angry that they're not being included in the depositions ahead of the impeachment hearings.

Wednesday, Republicans stormed a secure room known as a SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility), because they seemed to misunderstand the difference between a deposition and a hearing. In Congressional hearings, witnesses will be presented for members of the committee to question. In a classified deposition, the witness can give information that is considered classified for security reasons. Oddly, some members who are allowed in the room were also protesting.

WATCH: CNN’s Don Lemon bursts out laughing over Trump’s new wall in Colorado

Published

CNN's Don Lemon typically deals with difficult and intense topics at the top of his weekly show. Wednesday night, however, after a serious opener about Syria and ISIS, Lemon broke into hysterics over President Donald Trump's flub saying he would build a border wall on Colorado's border.

"You know why we're going to win New Mexico? Because they want safety on our border. And they didn't have it," said Trump. "And we're building a wall on the border of New Mexico. And we're building a wall in Colorado. We're building a beautiful wall, a big one that really works — you can't get over, you can't get under. And we're building a wall in Texas. And we're not building a wall in Kansas, but they get the benefit of the walls that we just mentioned. And Louisiana's incredible."
