Jimmy Kimmel gets choked up and calls out President Trump

LOS ANGELES, California- Jimmy Kimmel is usually known for his hilarious political call-outs in his opening monologue. However Thursday night, February 15, was a little different as Kimmel fought back tears.

Thursday, Kimmel called out President Donald Trump to go on camera and “Do Something.”
Kimmel told President Trump to, “Tell your buddies in Congress, tell Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Marco Rubio, all the family men who care so much about their communities that we need laws, real laws that keep assault rifles out of the hands of the people that are going to shoot our kids.”

Kimmel later got choked up about the number of school shootings the U.S. has had. Kimmel said, “Children are being murdered.” As you can see in the video, he is trying to hold back the tears. He then goes on to call out President Trump stating, “We haven’t even begun talking about it, you have literally done nothing.”

Kimmel also reached out to President Trump on Twitter saying; “Yes @RealDonaldTrump, it is time to do something about school shootings…” He then ended his tweet with a link to everytown.org.
