….During an interview with Rep. Sean Duffy (R., Wis.) about President Donald Trump’s move to halt immigration to the United States from countries deemed terrorism hotspots, anchor Alisyn Camerota compared the threat of terrorism to that of random lightning strikes….

“You know that more Americans are killed by lightning strikes every year than by terrorism, so how much do you want Americans to worry here?” Camerota asked Duffy.

“Lightning may be random, but this [terrorism] is purposeful and if the government could prevent lightning from killing people, we would. But if we can prevent terror attacks, and we can, we should,” Duffy said, challenging the anchor to tell the U.S. victims of terrorism that the loss of loved ones is similar to death by lightning.

“I challenge you to have that conversation,” Duffy said.

CNN then cut to breaking news of terror attack in Afghanistan that killed twenty and wounded fifty.

    The difference is that we can prevent terrorist strikes far easier that lighting strikes.

    That stupid comparison by Camerota gives no consideration to th American Soldiers working hard to fight terrorism ! But that’s typical CNN who act as though nothing that happens outside their NY bubble means a damn !
