On Thursday, CNN’s Don Lemon said that “homegrown killers” are the problem in response to the latest mass shooting in America happening in Thousands Oaks, California.
On Wednesday, a gunman opened fire and killed twelve people in a Country music bar. Lemon listed off a few of the places where mass shootings have happened.
Lemon said, “Americans aren’t safe in a Country & Western bar. They’re not safe in synagogues. Not safe in churches, schools, supermarkets, concerts, offices, gay bars, military bases, and newsrooms. And don’t forget about malls and baseball fields. I could have a longer list here.”
Lemon then play a short clip of the shooting and called it “chilling” that nobody was screaming.
“What’s really chilling is that you don’t hear the people screaming. Just gunshots and the sound of people trying to escape,” Lemon said. “Everyday Americans now know what they should do if they’re caught in a shooting. You don’t scream. You stay down. You run as soon as you can. It’s chilling that we’ve all thought about this.”
He then slammed the White House for insisting that Americans should be afraid of the caravan when the true killers are homegrown.
“And remember just last week when the president told you it was the caravan that you should be afraid of,” he said. “The caravan he is strangely not talking about much since the election.”
Adding, “The caravan didn’t shoot up that bar in Thousand Oaks. Which caravan did the shooter belong to? None of them as far as I know. The caravan didn’t kill 11 people in that Pittsburgh Synagogue.”
“The caravan is not the problem and hasn’t been the problem. Homegrown killers are the problem. Homegrown killers are the problem. The question is when are we going to do something about it?”

Trump introduced his family at his official campaign kickoff — including ‘my late brother Fred, Jr’
President Donald Trump introduced a long-deceased sibling moments after officially announcing his re-election bid during a campaign rally in Orlando, Florida.
"And I am profoundly thankful to my family, I have a great family. Melania, Don, Ivanka, Eric, Tiffany, baron, Lara, Jared, Robert, Marianne, Elizabeth and my late brother, Fred, Jr." Trump said.
Fred, Jr. was Trump's older brother and died of a heart attack almost four decades ago, passing in 1981.
"In a telephone interview last week, Mr. Trump said he had learned by watching his brother how bad choices could drag down even those who seemed destined to rise," The New York Times reported in 2016. Seeing his brother suffering led him to avoid ever trying alcohol or cigarettes, he said."
‘Take a drink every time he says no collusion’: Social media reacts to Trump’s Orlando rally
As President Donald Trump took the stage in Orlando, Florida on Tuesday to officially launch his 2020 campaign for re-election, numerous people all over social media expressed their thoughts on the matter.
Predictably, Trump had his fair share of online supporters cheering him on and wishing him luck defeating the evil liberals and "Floppy Joe" Biden — a new nickname Trump coined that joins the ranks of such other juvenile insults as "Sleepy Joe," "SleepyCreepy Joe," "Crazy Joe Biden," "Swampman Joe Biden," and "1 Percent Joe."
But at the same time, plenty of commentators noted some of the rally's more lacking features — as well as the president's own shortcomings as a leader and as a candidate.
I don’t feel bad for Kyle Kashuv losing Harvard: He gets a glimpse of what it’s like to be black
Kyle Kashuv losing his admission to Harvard is the dose of reality that America needs now.
Public opinion, at least on the internet, appears to be split over Harvard’s decision to disinvite Kashuv from joining its incoming freshman class. Kashuv, 18, rose to prominence as a young conservative star after he survived the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 2018. While many of his other classmates used the media attention to advocate for gun control, as they fought to deal with the trauma of seeing their classmates murdered, Kashuv did the opposite, becoming the high school outreach director for the conservative group Turning Point USA, lobbying for more guns in schools, and even meeting President Donald Trump.
