CNN commentator and liberal talking head Sally Kohn went after Donald Trump during his speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland Thursday night, slamming him for allegedly "profiling" people by bizarrely pointing out mass shootings committed by "white guys" armed with "AK-15s."
Which...well, isn't a real thing.
What about the mothers and fathers who have lost their violence to white guys with AK-15s conducting mass shootings? Why not profile them?— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) July 22, 2016
Yep. Apparently, people have "lost their violence" to "white guys with AK-15s."
Twitter immediately lit up with an onslaught of hilarious responses to Kohn's painfully ignorant anti-gun sentiment.
@sallykohn You seem pretty knowledgeable on the subject. Please, tell us more about the AK-15 problem.— TommyD (@KneelB4Zodd) July 22, 2016
@sallykohn can you buy AK-15 at Targ-mart?— Dale Tait (@Hailsbells15) July 22, 2016
Kohn tried to correct her multiple embarassing mistakes -- most notably when she mixed up an AR-15 with an AK-47 -- before once again berating "the right" for pointing out the fact that...well, she clearly knows nothing about guns.
Forgive the typo. I meant AR-15s. And now the right is freaking out about my typo not, ya know, the mass shootings https://t.co/HtYOPNLwcx— Sally Kohn (@sallykohn) July 22, 2016
But Kohn's lackluster backtracking didn't appease too many people.
@sallykohn Your typo reflects your (and the Left)'s total disregard for facts when it comes to the gun debate.— Cody Gaffney (@Mr_CodyG) July 22, 2016
@sallykohn its not the typo, it's the utter ignorance and cluelessness you spew.— B O (@bryceole) July 22, 2016
While unlikely, perhaps Kohn's not-so-excusable slip will serve as a cautionary tale to liberals who spout inane anti-gun rhetoric as political talking points. Perhaps, just perhaps, one should at least know the basic facts.
