Ben, Ana, and Iadarola hosting. A gunman opened fire on an Oregon Community College, where at least 13 people were killed, including the shooter. Talk about the number of mass shootings and school shootings that have happened this year, and since Sandy Hook. Bibi Netanyahu spoke to the UN today and focused on railing against the Iran deal. Video of his opening where he stood staring at the assembly for nearly 30 seconds without saying anything. Video of the crux of his speech where he called out UN countries’ silence on Iranian leaders’ call for the destruction of Israel, which included 45 seconds of “deafening silence.”
John leaves for SCS. Congress has neglected to vote on a 1st responder’s bill that would make the health care for the heroes of 911 permanent before it expired. Katy Perry invited a female fan up on stage during her performance in Brazil, only to be groped and kissed on in an aggressive manner. The few stories that picked the story up joked about it, which annoys Ana, since it wouldn’t be taken this way if it were a male fan groping Perry. Ben disagrees. The founder of the “Shout Your Abortion” campaign has gone into hiding after receiving tons of death threats. She openly spoke about her abortion to dispel the stigma associated with getting one. All of her info was posted online by the aggressors, too. Planned Parenthood reached out to help her find a place to lay low.
