Jimmy Kimmel opened his show yesterday and he immediately addressed his audience and President Trump about the shooting in Florida. In the monologue, Jimmy Kimmel said that he agrees with President Trump, that America needs to unite in these hard times, but then immediately pivoted to the issue of gun control.
Here is what Kimmel stated.
From Daily Caller:
Tell your buddies in Congress, tell Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio — all the family men who care so much about their communities — that what we need are laws, real laws, that do everything possible to keep assault rifles out of the hands of people who are going to shoot our kids,” Kimmel said Thursday on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” “Go on TV and tell them to do that.”
“I’ll tell you something. That is a perfect example of the common sense you told us you were going to bring to the White House. It’s time to bring it, we need it,” Kimmel continued.
He also questioned the religious faith of GOP lawmakers and referred to them as “allegedly Christian.”
“Tell these congressmen and lobbyists who infest that swamp you said you were going to drain, force these allegedly Christian men and women who stuff their pockets with money from the NRA year after year after year to do something. Now, not later. Now,” Kimmel said. “And don’t you dare let anyone say it’s too soon to be talking about it, because you said it after Vegas.
You said it after Sandy Hook, you say that after every one of these eight now fatal school shootings we had in this country this year. Children are being murdered.”Do something,” Kimmel said with his voice breaking. “We still haven’t even talked about it. You still haven’t done anything about this. Nothing. You’ve literally done nothing.”
