You may remember Denver talk radio host Chuck Bonniwell, who got fired for joking that a “nice school shooting” was needed to break up the boredom of the impeachment hearings.
Colorado Citizen Press, an anonymous ultra-conservative blog, is sponsoring the Chuck and Julie Show, a right-wing podcast with hosts Chuck Bonniwell and Julie Hayden, who burst into the national media late last year after Bonniwell joked on KNUS radio that a “nice school shooting” was needed to break up the “never-ending” impeachment hearings.
In case you’re wondering if there are any hard feelings lingering after Chuck Bonniwell and Julie Hayden’s “Chuck and Julie Show” was canceled by conservative KNUS 710-AM in December, listen to Bonniwell talk about his former KNUS colleagues on Bonniwell and Hayden’s new podcast, last week.
What gets lost behind the painful joke about a school shooting is what the KNUS hosts say about issues day after day after day.
The management of a Denver radio station has canceled its Chuck and Julie show, after co-host Chuck Bonniwell said on air that the “never-ending impeachment of Donald Trump” makes "you wish for a nice school shooting to interrupt the monopoly.”
Bonniwell's comment came as KNUS is facing accusations that a staffer is a Nazi.
“He’s a narcissist, incredibly flawed, and I think he’s the greatest president of my lifetime,” said Chuck Bonniwell, right-wing radio host, to Craig Silverman, another conservative host, both on Colorado’s KNUS radio.
At a political moment when even the most somnolent people are wondering why more Republicans aren’t ripping Trump, Colorado Congressman Ken Buck was repeatedly attacked by KNUS host Randy Corporon yesterday for not supporting Trump sufficiently because, among other things, he didn’t cosponsor the resolution censoring Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) for his satirical comments about Trump.

Political observers were left scratching their heads last week over why Walker Stapleton, who’s Colorado’s Republican candidate for governor, would appear at a fundraising event with former Congressman Tom Tancredo, whose views on undocumented immigrants (kick them out), Mecca (bomb it), abortion (ban it) and much more don’t align with the swing voter sensibility that most rational candidates aim to mimic in a general election like the one coming up in November.
