Kimmel Ruthlessly Rips Don. Trump Jr. and ‘Scumbags’ Spreading Shooting Conspiracy Theories
Jimmy Kimmel Tells ‘Crazy’ Don Jr., Ted Nugent Their Brains Are ‘Not Functioning’
One of the most disgusting conspiracy theories to come out of conservative circles has been claims actors have been used in one way or another surrounding mass shootings. This has been particularly true of school shootings.
One of the more egregious claims came from the likes of Alex Jones after the Newtown school shooting which took over two dozen lives, mostly children under 10 years old. Now the right wing has been making more claims of actors being involved in the aftermath of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas school massacre. And Jimmy Kimmel has clearly had enough of this BS.

Kimmel took particular aim at Donald Trump Jr. during his monologue last night. The president’s son had liked multiple stories on Twitter that alleged some of the students who survived the attack were “crisis actors” pushing a gun control agenda. He also pointed out NRA board member Ted Nugent was spreading similar garbage on social media.
Kimmel was pointed with his comments and included a call to action for others to step up and challenge these posts when they see them spread. (Full video below)
I want you to consider this, especially if you are a Trump supporter or a member of the NRA. Do you really think these kids…who spoke out after a shooting at their school are actors, who are a part of some kind of Deep State, left-wing conspiracy? If the answer is, “Yes, I do believe that”, I have some bad news for you. You’re crazy. You’re a crazy person. Your brain is not functioning…
If you aren’t crazy…and you agree that accusing teenagers of being part of some sort of diabolical, underground government scheme is nuts, you can’t just sit there and let these scumbags spread these lies about these kids.
The right wing is clearly scrambling to find any diversion possible to take the heat off of the issue of guns in America following yet another massacre by someone that obtained weapons of mass murder far too easily. And if that means demeaning grieving kids still burying their friends and teachers, that’s just fine with them.
But the rest of America is clearly getting more and more fed up with this avoidance of the issue. The pressure is building because of a very brave group of high schoolers and conservatives are embarrassingly crumbling under the circumstances.
