A Colorado radio host has reportedly been fired and his show canceled after he said on air that a “nice school shooting” could help break up the news around the impeachment of President Trump.
Chuck Bonniwell, co-host of the Chuck & Julie show, said Tuesday, “You know, you wish for a nice school shooting to interrupt” it after complaining about the “never-ending” impeachment process, KUSA reports. “Don’t even say that,” co-host Julie Hayden responded. Bonniwell added that he wouldn’t want anyone to be hurt, according to KUSA.
