TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): If you don't have much money and if you don't have much power, this is definitely a very bad time to live in New York City. It's a frightening time. The economy has been shut down for months. Hundreds of thousands of jobs have vanished, they may not come back. The neighborhoods of New York have been scarred by rioting and looting. And now, most ominously, violence is surging in what used to be not so long ago America's safest big city. Shootings this June more than doubled compared to the same month last year. On Sunday alone, 64 people in New York were shot. Ten were killed. 

It's obvious what's going on here. New York's leaders are indulging the mob, which works for them in the end. They're attacking police officers, they are holding back law enforcement from normal people. Criminals and predators are doing what they always do, they're taking advantage. Weak and vulnerable people of all races are paying the price for this. This is not a concern over at CNN. Don Lemon doesn't care. He is a highly paid news anchor. For him, the shootings and murders are the stuff he covers on television, not something that affects his life. In fact, the whole thing is kind of hilarious.
