Fox News “Unfiltered” host Dan Bongino criticized left-leaning pundits for their stance on Elon Musk’s $43 million bid to buy Twitter.
Bongino scolded critics during a segment on Saturday’s show, claiming that Musk has done everyone a favor by “putting hard cash on the table.”
“He’s offering to give you a massive premium on what you paid for the share prices,” said Bongino. “So, now you want to be woke — you’ve got a couple of choices here.”
Last week, following Musk’s proposal to buy Twitter, the company’s board adopted a limited-term shareholder rights plan called a “poison pill.” The move allows the company’s other shareholders other than Musk to acquire more shares at a relatively low price.
“There’s a price for being woke, folks,” said Bongino. “You want to be woke; you want to run Twitter your way? Well, you can run it into the ground because Elon Musk just put hard cash on the table. He’s offering to give you a massive premium on what you paid for the share prices.”
Musk still owns a little more than 9% of Twitter. The “Poison Pill” provision will kick in if Musk or any other investor acquires 15% of the company or more.
Jeanine Pirro Wants a “Hardening Perimeter” for Each School
Pirro voiced support for “hardening the perimeter” of each school in the country and stationing security guards at them.
The latest mass shooting occurred at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, where a gunman killed 18 students and three adults. Much like in the Sandy Hook and Parkland shootings, many are voicing their opinions about how the country can avoid these incidents.
During a segment on “The Five,” co-host Jeanine Pirro voiced support for “hardening the perimeter” of each school in the country and stationing security guards at them.
“I mean, these children are–they’re babies,” Pirro said, per Mediaite. “They really are babies.”
Pirro suggested that many retired law enforcement officers would be willing to contribute their time to supply security at schools across the United States.
“I think that you’ve got a lot of people now – retired cops, retired sheriffs – who’d be more than happy to protect kids. I think right now – and I don’t want to get into the politics of it – but we’ve got to make sure that people understand, especially the schools and the teachers, that we need this,” Pirro said.
“It is a crazy world today. It’s very different than it was five years ago. But we need to do something about it I think this is one of the only ways to actually protect the school and the children.”
Bill Melugin Details What He Saw at Robb Elementary School
Melugin left his regular assignment covering the crisis at the Southern Border to cover a mass school shooting
Fox News reporter Bill Melugin left his regular assignment covering the crisis at the Southern Border to cover a mass school shooting that left at least 21 people dead in Uvalde, Texas on Tuesday.
Melugin spent hours appearing on the network’s primetime lineup reporting from the scene. The correspondent addressed rumors that the shooting at the school began as a border patrol chase.
“We’re not hearing anything about a chase, there were rumors flying around that this was a sort of border patrol chase, I have not heard anything of the sort, I have not confirmed any of that information and have no reason to believe any of those rumors are credible at this moment,” he said.
Melugin described what he saw at Robb Elementary School and the scene inside the school.
” We went in, there is a room full of parents, a private room where they are waiting on information for their loved ones, some are walking the hallways, some are crying, hugging, emotional, some have been given horrible news,” Melugin said. “There is a room full of parents necessary there waiting on information.”
Wolf Blitzer Slams the Availability of “Weapons of Mass Destruction”
Blitzer criticized the availability of what he termed “weapons of mass destruction.”
A shooter in Uvalde, Texas, walked into a school and opened fire, killing 21 people, including 19 children and two adults, on Tuesday. CNN host Wolf Blitzer reacted to the tragedy in “The Situation Room.”
According to a transcript published on Breitbart, Blitzer criticized the availability of what he termed “weapons of mass destruction.”
“Every time there is an incident like this, you hear about efforts to deal with mentally unstable people who can certainly go out there and buy a weapon of mass destruction, go out there and buy a gun or rifle or some sort of assault-type weapon and go to there and eventually start killing wonderful, wonderful, people.”
According to the Associated Press, Tuesday’s attack on Robb Elementary School was the deadliest shooting at a U.S. school since a gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newton, Connecticut.
