Jimmy Kimmel, who used to be a comedian, now just uses his late night talk show to spout emotional politics at his audience. He attacked the NRA and accused them of owning congressmen. He also said that Republicans who disagree with him on gun control policies are ‘mental ill.’
“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,” said Kimmel.
“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,” he said.
You’ve literally done nothing. Actually, you’ve done worse than nothing. You like to say this is a mental health issue. One of your very first acts as president, Mr. Trump, was to actually roll back the regulations that were designed to keep firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill,” he said.
“You did that. Your party voted to repeal the mandates on coverage for mental health. So I agree, this is a mental illness issue, because if you don’t think we need to do something about it, you’re obviously mentally ill,” he said. Immediately people went online to call him out on his lies. Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro wrote about how the NRA does not own politicians.
