Buck Sexton called-out late-night comedians, Hollywood celebrities, and professional athletes for dividing the nation in the aftermath of the tragedy that unfolded in Las Vegas over the weekend, saying they were rushing to politicize the mass shooting that left 59 people dead.
Buck slammed comedian Jimmy Kimmel on ‘America Now’ Tuesday, saying the late-night comedian has no idea what “gun laws already exist” or “what the Second Amendment” is even about.
“That’s what we really need. We need late-night comedians who don’t know the difference between an automatic, or semi-automatic, or an AK-47, or what gun laws already exist on the books, or what the Second Amendment is all about,” said Buck.
“We need our late-night comedians in the aftermath of a tragedy to lecture us on policy and to make emotional arguments that are bereft of intellectual heft,” he added. “That’s what’s going to solve the problem. Maybe, just maybe, you would think that late-night comedians would decide that this is a time for them to bring us all together and not make this a political argument.”
“[Kimmel] wants to separate us right away. He wants to find a means to make this about how conservatives, the Republicans are the bad guys,” Sexton said. “He’s a comedian, he could make us all feel better.”
“Jimmy Kimmel thinks he’s a politician now; thinks that he’s a political pundit,” he added. “The mask has dropped with celebrities, with actors, with athletes about their politics, because sure enough we can see what they say on social media, we can see what they think now.”
