    Kimmel is working hard to drive off show fans. I used to enjoy his show. But then Trump got elected and Kimmel has yet to forgive America for whom they elected. He is angry. And so angry he uses his program politically. I blow his show off now for the most part. I keep hoping the jimmy Kimmel of old will return. But then I put on his show and see i wasted my time since I can see PBS to see Democrats being praised and Trump being reviled. Why go to comedy to get more and more I say.

    It's so sad that some (many) young people get their news from clowns like him and Stephen Colbert. I have family members who think Colbert is a centrist and an excellent source of unbiased news.

    It makes me sick.

    Do you dispute any of the mass murders Kimmel referenced and WHY in hell do you take it so lightly?

    These leftists have lost their freakin minds. Twitter is overrun by them. Don’t think the silent majority isn’t paying attention. They’re making it worse for themselves.

    I don't take it lightly. It's a serious situation and it will happen again.

    And I'm sad that many young people get their news from demagogues.

    Why are you asking such an inane question he just listed all of them. Are you disputing background checks wouldn't have stopped them?

    Stephen Colbert is a late night show comedian. He doesn't report news he just repeats it and emphasizes the ridiculousness of it.

    I know that, and you know that. But some younger members of my family and millions of other young people don't know that.

    They: 1) purposely twist the news, 2) for political gain. But since they're not politicians, I guess you're right and they don't technically qualify as demagogues.

    It’s proven that people seek out others with idea’s that align with theirs. People that watch slanted media has their mind made up already, they just enjoy the company that supports their ideas. This is why I hate the ambiguous left/right categories. This is used by people that have the inability to articulate why they don’t like something someone else does.

    The real issue here is the influence of the powerful lobby called the NRA. They have stood in the way of any reasonable restrictions, all the while pandering the fear of guns being taken away.

    How much higher does the body count have to get for politicians to grow some balls and do what the majority wants; tighter restrictions and accountability.

    There’s a difference between taking something seriously and losing your ****ing mind over something. Just because you don’t do the latter doesn’t mean you are “taking it so lightly.”

    are you sure its a majority?

    again, you're not going to convince the average gun owner to give up his weapons by siting what crazy people and democrats are doing with them.

    Leave it to brietbart to spew a marvellously specious bit of sophistry.

    the predisposed lap it up without a critical thought flying thru their heads.

    Sort of a chicken or the egg situation ...

    What came first - the sadly comical way the Trump White House has been run or the jokes about the sadly comical way the Trump White House has operated?
    Making fun of politicians, including Presidents is a time-homered American tradition. Trump FanBoys had better get used to it or it's going to be a long 2 years for them.
