Jimmy Kimmel on Mass Shootings in El Paso & Dayton


THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. AFTER ANOTHER WEEKEND OF SADNESS AND OUTRAGE IN THE UNITED STATES WE HAD TWO MORE MASS SHOOTINGS. ONE ON SATURDAY IN EL PASO. THE OTHER IN DAYTON, SUNDAY MORNING. HORRIBLE, SENSELESS TRAGEDIES. AGAIN WITH MANY LIVES LOST. AND AGAIN OUR LEADERS IN ONE PARTY IN PARTICULAR ARE OFFERING NOT MUCH MORE THAN THEIR THOUGHTS AND THEIR PRAYERS. AND YOU KNOW, I WAS THINKING AND PRAYING ABOUT IT, AND BOTH PARTIES SAY — THEY SAY ONE THING, THAT WE’RE TOO DIVIDED. THIS IS SOMETHING WE HEAR A LOT, THAT WE NEED TO FIND SOMETHING WE CAN AGREE ON. WELL, HERE’S SOMETHING WE CAN AGREE ON. TOO MANY PEOPLE ARE BEING SHOT WITH HIGH-POWERED WEAPONS. I THINK WE’D AGREE ON THAT. [ APPLAUSE ] AND AGREE ON THIS TOO. THEY DID A POLL LAST YEAR. 97% OF GUN OWNERS, THESE ARE GUN OWNERS, SUPPORT UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS. 97%. THAT’S UNHEARD OF. YOU CAN ASK PEOPLE IS ICE CREAM DELICIOUS AND NOT GET 97%. BUT THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER MITCH McCONNELL, THIS EVIL SOULLESS OLD CREEP WON’T EVEN ALLOW THE SENATE TO VOTE ON A BIPARTISAN BILL TO REQUIRE BACKGROUND CHECKS FOR GUN PURCHASES AT GUN SHOWS. THERE ARE TWO BILLS, EACH WRITTEN BY DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS TOGETHER BECAUSE BACKGROUND CHECKS, SOMETHING WE AGREE ON. THESE BILLS — THE BILLS PASSED IN THE HOUSE IN FEBRUARY, AND TO BECOME LAW WE’D HAVE TO PASS THEM IN THE SENATE TOO. BUT MITCH McCONNELL MADE SURE THE SENATE COULDN’T EVEN VOTE ON THEM. HE DIDN’T BRING THEM TO THE FLOOR. THEY LEFT FOR RECESS. TELL MITCH McCONNELL WE HAVE SOME GOOD NEWS. CALL HIM AND TELL HIM THE GOOD NEWS IS WE AGREE ON SOMETHING FOR A CHANGE. WE AGREE THAT HE NEEDS TO DRAG HIS BONY GRAY ASS BACK INTO WORK TO VOTE ON THESE BILLS. LET’S START WITH THAT THING THAT WE ALL AGREE ON. [ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] AND GO FROM THERE. OKAY? IT’S UNBELIEVABLE. YESTERDAY 49 REPUBLICAN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS REFUSED TO GO ON CNN TO TALK ABOUT THE SHOOTINGS. THE COPS IN DAYTON RAN INTO THE LINE OF FIRE TO STOP THE GUY SHOOTING. THE POLITICIANS WERE TOO COWARDLY TO GO ON CABLE TELEVISION TO TALK ABOUT IT. AND MEANWHILE, THIS IS WHAT OUR PRESIDENT WAS BUSY WITH THIS WEEKEND. THIS IS NOT A JOKE. ASAP ROCKY RELEASED FROM PRISON AND ON HIS WAY HOME TO THE UNITED STATES FROM SWEDEN. IT WAS A ROCKY WEEK. GET HOME ASAP, ASAP. GOOD ONE, MR. PRESIDENT. YOU GOT THAT DOLLAR SIGN IN JUST THE RIGHT SPOT. BUT BACK TO THE SHOOTINGS IN EL PASO AND DAYTON.>>WE’RE TALKING TO A LOT OF PEOPLE AND A LOT OF THINGS ARE IN THE WORKS AND A LOT OF GOOD THINGS AND WE HAVE DONE MUCH MORE THAN MOST ADMINISTRATIONS AND IT’S REALLY NOT TALKED ABOUT VERY MUCH BUT WE’VE DONE ACTUALLY A LOT. BUT PERHAPS MORE HAS TO BE DONE.>>Jimmy: YEAH. DO MORE. THAT WOULD BE GOOD. BECAUSE WHATEVER YOU’VE BEEN DOING DOESN’T SEEM TO BE GOING TOO GREAT. HE REFUSES TO TAKE ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY OF THIS. BUT HE DID TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO POINT THAT LITTLE FINGER OF BLAME AT YOU’LL NEVER GUESS WHO. THE MEDIA HAS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY TO LIFE AND SAFETY IN OUR COUNTRY. FAKE NEWS HAS CONTRIBUTED GREATLY TO THE ANGER AND RAGE THAT HAS BUILT UP OVER MANY YEARS. NEWS COVERAGE HAS GOT TO START BEING FAIR, BALANCED AND UNBIASED OR THESE TERRIBLE PROBLEMS WILL ONLY GET WORSE. HE BLAMED THE FAKE NEWS. AND LATER HE AND SOME OTHER REPUBLICANS BLAMED VIDEO GAMES. AND OF COURSE THERE’S ZERO STUDIES THAT LINK VIDEO GAMES TO GUN VIOLENCE. AND THEY PLAY VIDEO GAMES ALL OVER THE WORLD. THIS IS THE ONLY PLACE WHERE THIS HAPPENS REGULARLY. VIDEO GAMES HAVE NOT BEEN LINKED TO GUN VIOLENCE. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT IS LINKED TO GUN VIOLENCE? GUNS ARE LINKED TO GUN VIOLENCE. [ APPLAUSE ] THE PROBLEM ISN’T FAKE MUSE. IT’S REAL GUNS. ANYWAY, THE PRESIDENT TODAY TRIED HIS VERY BEST TO BE PRESIDENTIAL. THEY EVEN FIRED UP THE OLD TELEPROMPTER SO TRUMP COULD FINALLY COME OUT AGAINST WHITE SUPREMACY AND OFFER WORDS OF CONDOLENCE TO THE PEOPLE OF DAYTON, OHIO, WHICH HE CALLS TOLEDO.>>MAY GOD BLESS THE MEMORY OF THOSE WHO PERISHED IN TOLEDO.>>Jimmy: YEAH. NOBODY PERISHED IN TOLEDO. IT WAS DAYTON. THEY’VE DIFFERENT CITIES. AND BY THE WAY, THE WORD TOLEDO WASN’T EVEN IN THE TELEPROMPTER. SOMEBODY GOT THIS SHOT. IT CLEARLY SAYS TEXAS AND OHIO. NICE WORK, DON BURGUNDY. YOU’RE DOING GREAT. [ APPLAUSE ] AND THIS I THINK MAYBE MORE THAN ANYTHING GIVES YOU SOME INSIGHT INTO HOW MUCH THIS MAN CARES. 14 MINUTES AFTER HE TWEETED ABOUT THE SHOOTING IN EL PASO ON SATURDAY HE FOLLOWED IT UP WITH A SHOUT OUT TO A UFC FIGHTER. “FIGHT HARD TONIGHT, COLBY. YOU ARE A REAL CHAMP. #MAGA.” LIKE MANY AMERICANS WHO’VE BEEN REPEATEDLY PUNCHED IN THE HEAD, COLBY COVINGTON IS A BIG DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTER. AND THERE’S NOTHING DONALD TRUMP LOVES MORE THAN PEOPLE WHO LOVE DONALD TRUMP. THE OTHER REASON TRUMP WAS SO INTERESTED IN THIS FIGHT IS HIS SONS, ERIC AND DJTJ, WERE MAKING AN APPEARANCE THERE.>>A LOT OF CELEBRITIES AND ROYALTY IN THE HOUSE TONIGHT. THE TRUMP BROTHERS, DONALD JR. AND ERIC HERE THIS AFTERNOON IN SUPPORT OF COLBY COVINGTON.>>Jimmy: YEAH, LOOK AT THAT. IT’S THE DOUCHES OF HAZZARD. [ LAUGHTER ] THOSE GUYS ARE SO COOL. JUST A COUPLE OF NORMAL DUDES WHO DEFINITELY KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THEIR HANDS AND THEIR FACES.

  1. 66 shot in Chicago in the same exact weekend. 12 fatally. High gun control liberal city. No news coverage just crickets chirping. High percentage with handguns. No outcry, color me surprised.

  2. More "Holly-Weird" Media Conditioning Propaganda AGAINST The PEOPLE…
    Jimmie Kimmel is Cheap Democrat TRASH…!!!

  3. The liberal racists love to talk about mass shootings while totally ignoring the massive number of shootings by Blacks and Hispanics all across the country.

  4. The United States was founded as a white republic and white supremacy is baked into the constitution and institutions that exist today. For instance, the slave patrols, citizens’ militias, that were tasked with controlling slave populations in the slave states, continued to function during the Civil War that ended in outlawing slavery. But these slave patrollers simply put on hoods and robes and continued to play the same role in terrorizing and controlling the freed Black population. Although illegal during the US military occupation of the South, they were so many and so widespread that they could not be stopped. When the Army pulled out, they took off their hoods and robes and became the local sheriffs controlling the Black population under Jim Crow. With the Black diaspora escaping the South to northern and later west-coast cities, southern whites also migrated, forming all-white police forces in cities. In 1950, the US was a locked-down white male republic, African-Americans living segregated, Native peoples on tiny portions of their original territories, Mexicans as indentured agribusiness workers, women with few rights, especially if they were married…

    With the humiliating loss of the US war in Vietnam in the mid-1970s, and with nearly 700,000 combat veterans back in civil society, armed white nationalist groups multiplied. Ronald Reagan’s presidency was openly, although coded, white nationalist, with the US covert counterinsurgencies in Afghanistan and Central America employing many of the disgruntled, out-of-work vets as mercenaries and domestic terrorist groups appearing, particularly in eastern Washington and Oregon, Montana, Colorado, and in the 1990s spreading to the entire continent. War fever, with the invasions of Panama, the Gulf war, and the post-9/11 wars produced more armed white nationalists

  5. It's media like this that makes people hate. Media makes money when there is division, chaos and scandal. This guy Jimmy sells himself out. He is a nice guy but rather make money off hate to pay his bills and keep his show rather than stick to his values.

  6. There’s a reason no one finds kimmel funny all he talks about is how much he hates republicans. That’s why jimmy Fallon is better he actually makes funny jokes that don’t attack half the population

  7. Oh waoo, I just have one question……you weren't the one who compare THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC with Syria? So what happened? USA is not the safest country in the world then?

  8. Here is the hypocrisy. So the party that claims to be pro-life aren't doing anything to ensure life. Yet they claim moral authority over the mother's rights to an abortion. Ah I love the smell of BS in the morning.

  9. so you want to stop arming American families to protect themselves? families and friends if you suspect someone with such motives of doing these horrendous acts then report them right away.

  10. nice to live in Europe, where we really do not have to fear for our lives because guns are not readily available here. The right to feel safe prevales the right to own guns. It's that simple: rank your rights that you want to claim based on the second amedment.

  11. Its pretty disgusting to use the deaths of people to push a political agenda. Here's your logic in a nutshell. You know what might help stop all of these killings? Civil war.

  12. Even if what Jimmy is talking about was the law, it wouldn't prevent these two shootings, they both would have passed a background check.

  13. That tweet at 3:16 actually makes a lot of sense. The media is not doing its job. Fake news – mostly spread by Trump and his buddies – is making people angry and violent at the wrong people and for the wrong reasons. And news coverage certainly needs to be more fair, balanced and unbiased, or it will only get worse.
    Just weird having the biggest criminal in the room say "Hey guys, this shit's illegal, you know."

  14. Ppl that are supporting him just make me think that something so bad is going on for ppl to buy this con man that makes everything about him

  15. As you read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights:

    (1) Look at the enumerated powers of the federal government;

    (2) Look at the express limitations on federal power as set forth in the Second, Ninth, and Tenth Amendments;

    (3) Ask yourself, where does the federal government get any power at all to regulate firearms?

    (4) Ask yourself, why don’t the high school and college textbooks devote any time to the history, philosophical basis and practical meaning of the Second Amendment?

    And then consider that law students and future lawyers likewise have received precious little education about the Second Amendment.

    Realize, too, that the judges know just about as little. Then imagine how little the average American knows — based on the average public school coverage of the Constitution.

    The protection of our sacred right of self-defense against both petty criminals and oppressive government — the right of civilians to keep and bear arms is in your hands.

  16. I get it, you dont like Trump or his kids. Rather then give them air time and point out the obvious for a couple laughs, why not spend time sharing some of the stories of the victims or the stories of the first responders.

  17. Celebrities always lean left, always hate gun ownership. Maybe they will have no future in Hollywood if they come out pro-2nd amendment. Why even bother voicing their opinion on this matter? It's assumed where they stand on it.

  18. I knew that America was mad but just not this mad, when will the American public eventually wake up. It is such a tragic set of events that just keep happening n happening over n over again!!!
    Wurzo 1968

  19. 1 year with leaped day and 81 days(82 if you count today the fourteenth of August 2019) days or 447(448 if counting 8/14/10 which is today) more days to America's election on November third 2020. It's been 2 years, 8 months, and day with Trump as president/federal leader; almost 3/4s done if he's not re-elected next year?

  20. Is the Gun Lobby so powerful that
    It Controls govt regulations on the need for a gun?
    Gun is good for security. But very dangerous if a physco gets a gun license.
    I think a physcological evaluation should be done before issuing gun license.
    In the US some people live in large houses in secluded places in the woods or hills.
    So a gun for security is necassary.
    But guns should be banned inside schools and there should be strict checking fot guns in schools or malls.
    Women also need guns for security.
    Also very few people with guns are trigger happy and mad.
    Really the Gun is a very complex
    Issue in the US.

  21. How many studies have they done on anti depressants and mass shootings? Nobody wants to talk about that. Treat the symptom not the cause right liberals?? U people make me sick… 2nd amendment, u wont take us alive

  22. wow when will the usa learn …..i am guessing never and this is going to get a lot worse beforwe it gets better……….the NRA…is a joke the only guns that the usa should allow is rifles and shotguns that have to be pumped or have a bolt action and no gun should have a clip with more than 5 rounds in it……….that would slow down the mass murders……

  23. Take away 223. They will use 9. Take away 9 they will use 22.. Take away 22 they will use knives…. wait there already using knives

  24. If we want change in this Country we need to Change every person in Congress from both sides to get things to change in our country , Time to get all the dino out of office

  25. Just once I would love to see an artist pretend to love Trump and do a concert for him, then change all the words of the song to expose Trump in front of everyone at his own event.

  26. The Douches of Hazard … priceless 🤣. The brothers look worse for wear, slightly green around the gills. And # 45, put a cork in it, already. "We're talking to a lot of people and a lot of things are in the works, and a lot of things are good, and …" really? A fourth-grader can talk more intelligibly.

  27. Background checks wouldnt have worked for the el paso shooter he was 21 he was a kid basically he would have been allowed to purchase the gun he had anyways
