Jimmy Kimmel Chokes Up During Emotional Speech About Parkland School Shooting

Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional speech directed at President Trump during an episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live on Thursday (February 15).

The talk show host talked about the school shooting in Parkland, Florida and responded to politicians who think that it’s too soon to talk about gun control.

“Tell your buddies in Congress – tell Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio – all the family men who care so much about their communities – that what we need – are laws,” Kimmel said. “Real laws – that do everything possible to keep assault rifles – out of the hands of people who are going to shoot our kids.”

“And don’t you dare let anyone say ‘it’s too soon to be talking about it.’ Because you guys said that after Las Vegas. You said it after Sandy Hook. You say that after every one of these eight now fatal school we’ve had in the United States this year,” he added. “Children are being murdered. Do something. We still haven’t talked about it. You still haven’t done anything about this. Nothing. You’ve literally done nothing.”
