Jimmy Kimmel Gets Taken to the Woodshed on Twitter, Here’s The Reason Why

This is what happens when you quote CNN.

Almost instantaneously after the shooting at Santa Fe High School left 10 people dead, celebrities and anti-gun activists started calling for strict gun control measures, a strategy that only hurts law abiding citizens and does little to prevent these horrific incidents.

One of the leading voices in the call to destroy the Second Amendment is late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel who jumped on Twitter and started demanding gun control, however, he made a huge mistake by relying on information and statistics from the world’s worst news organization: CNN.

CNN is notorious for never allowing a set of facts to get in the way of its agenda, something that should make the usage of information from the network suspect, and in Kimmel’s case, it’s just plain wrong.

“The US has had 57 times as many school shootings as the other major industrialized nations combined,” Kimmel tweeted, citing a CNN report.

Here are a few of PolitiFacts’ fact-checks on some of the inflated numbers pushed by CNN and gun control groups like Everytown for Gun Safety:

Mostly False: 18 U.S. school shootings so far in 2018 and 18 in rest of the world over past 20 years

14 school shootings since 2010 in Florida? Not really

Have there been 74 school shootings since Sandy Hook? A closer look at a tricky statistic

A number of followers on Twitter made sure to take a few moments of time to point out to Kimmel that his statistics have already been proven wrong:

As you can see, CNN has been padding their numbers for quite some time, hoping that by doing so it will help them push an agenda on the American people with the goal in mind of convincing them to protest against their own constitutional rights.

The ultimate goal with such a strategy is to convince people that things are super bad and the only way to stop the situation is by placing severe limitations on the Second Amendment, and ultimately, over time, getting rid of it.

Kimmel is serving as an ignorant mouthpiece for the strategy, most likely not even aware that’s what’s happening. This is why it’s critical to do your own research and to look on both sides of an issue before making up your mind.

You cannot count on accurate information from celebrities and actors.

Video: Joe Biden Says DACA Recipients ‘More American Than Most Americans’ (Watch)

Americans might have a thing or two to say about that…

2020 Democrat presidential frontrunner Joe Biden doesn’t think drunk driving is a felony, when illegal aliens do it. No joke. He said he wouldn’t deport an illegal over a drunk doing offense. How terrible is that? But Joe didn’t stop there. He went further. He is now saying DACA illegals are “more American than most Americans” because they do well in school. This is your Democrat frontrunner, folks… WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWX3i9Amxxw&feature=emb_logo Reactions: https://twitter.com/CoolCzech1/status/1220476467412377600?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220476467412377600&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F https://twitter.com/CasualSemi/status/1220474912185470976?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220474912185470976&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F https://twitter.com/RealRegularJoe/status/1220476216341385218?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1220476216341385218&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2020%2F01%2F23%2Fthis-is-messed-up-joe-biden-describes-whos-often-more-american-than-most-americans-and-people-have-thoughts%2F Biden should easily lose the Democrat nomination based on his own merit. That’s how terrible a candidate he really is. However, Joe’s son Hunter is making things so much harder on the 2020 presidential campaign, given how he’s such a total screw-up. After Burisma and the baby mama drama, Hunter may now be linked to multiple criminal probes. Not just one. Multiple. From New York Post: Hunter Biden is the subject of multiple criminal investigations related to “fraud, money laundering and a counterfeiting scheme,” it’s claimed in court documents filed Monday in his Arkansas paternity case. The claims were put forward by a Florida-based private-eye firm, D&A Investigations, in Biden’s ongoing case against alleged baby mama Lunden Alexis Roberts, a former Washington, DC, stripper who went by “Dallas.” WATCH: To open a very serious hearing, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) delivers a completely made-up account of President Trump’s conversation with the Ukrainian President. Very normal and professional. https://twitter.com/BlazeTV/status/1177218754557751296?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177218754557751296&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call Reactions: If the conversation were as damning as Schiff et al would like, he would have simply read directly from it, instead of making up dialogue. Probably not surprising in light of the extravagant collusion claims he made for 2 years. https://twitter.com/brithume/status/1177243632593772545?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1177243632593772545&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fwatch-democrat-adam-schiff-makes-up-quotes-from-trumps-ukraine-call There isn’t a sleazier human being in politics than corrupt charlatan Adam Schiff.

After three years out of the spotlight, it appears Barack Obama is ready to get back into the game. Why? Who knows? It’s not as if anyone is asking him to come back. Maybe he feels it is his duty.

Corruption? Those two words do not belong in the same sentence! Barack was the greatest leader that America, nay, THE WORLD, has ever seen!
