Kimmel Resorts To Disrespecting Everyday Americans in Sickening Attack Against Border Wall

Share

Do you want to see a border wall? Were you willing to donate to the GoFundMe effort to build one? Well, apparently, you’re a meth addict.

I’m not quite sure of the logic either, but Jimmy Kimmel is. During his show Friday, the late-night host mocked the effort as akin to setting up a college fund for Harry Potter and painted those who were in favor of the program as drug addicts.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with the program, let me quickly summarize it for you. Brian Kolfage, a Purple Heart recipient who lost three limbs in the line of duty, has started a GoFundMe campaign to build the wall. The campaign has become a runaway success.

“Like a majority of those American citizens who voted to elect President Donald J Trump, we voted for him to Make America Great Again. President Trump’s main campaign promise was to BUILD THE WALL. And as he’s followed through on just about every promise so far, this wall project needs to be completed still,” Kolfage wrote on the page.

“As a veteran who has given so much, 3 limbs, I feel deeply invested to this nation to ensure future generations have everything we have today. Too many Americans have been murdered by illegal aliens and too many illegals are taking advantage of  the United States taxpayers with no means of ever contributing to our society.”

“Democrats are going to stall this project by every means possible and play political games to ensure President Trump doesn’t get his victor. They’d rather see President Trump fail, than see America succeed. However, if we can fund a large portion of this wall, it will jumpstart things and will be less money Trump has to secure from our politicians,” he added.

“This won’t be easy, but it’s our duty as citizens. This needs to be shared every single day by each of you on social media. We can do it, and we can help President Trump make America safe again!”

As of now, the initiative has raised $14 million dollars. To be fair, it’s mostly about sending a message to politicians in Washington; the goal is $1 billion, which is profoundly unlikely to happen, and if it doesn’t reach that mark the money is returned. However, the runaway success of the campaign has proved there’s still a considerable contingent of Americans who want to see the wall built — and they managed to get some publicity in the process.

Should this dude be kicked off the air?

However, out in sunny Los Angeles, Mr. Kimmel found this whole thing uproarious. He began by describing the shutdown situation.



“Trump is leaving Washington, D.C. an absolute mess. He caused quite a thing today. He announced today he’s not going to sign a resolution to fund the government. This is a deal that was crafted by Republicans. They thought he was going to sign it,” Kimmel began.

“He surprised them and said, I’m not signing it unless I get the $5 billion I want for my border wall. If he doesn’t get that money, which he won’t, tomorrow night at midnight the government will shut down, which means hundreds of thousands of workers won’t get paid.”

“Basically, Trump is taking paychecks from federal employees at Christmas time to punish Congress for not paying for a wall he swore 500 times Mexico would be paying for. So Feliz Navidad, everyone. But here’s the twist. The twist is the president might not need Mexico or Congress to pay for the wall at all because there are some very dopey people ready to pay for it themselves.”

Those dopey people, he sneered, were led by “this Trump supporter” Kolfage.

“People, this is what people do with their disposable income when they don’t have loans from college to pay off,” Kimmel joked. (Because get it? They’re uneducated! Haha, the morons.)

“Donating money for a wall that will never exist. It’s like starting a college fund for Harry Potter. It’s a — it’s a waste. A more useful thing to do with your money would be to go outside and feed it to a bird but you do have to admire the sacrifice they’re making. I mean, a lot of these people are dipping into their meth money for this.”

So, a group of uneducated meth addicts led by some dope who gave three limbs for his country are wasting money on trying to build the wall — except they aren’t, since if they don’t meet the target (and they almost certainly won’t) the money is returned.

For all of that, they managed to buy free attention, including getting Jimmy Kimmel to reveal what he really thinks about people who don’t agree with him. At the very least, we can give Kolfage and his supporters credit for revealing who the “dopey people” really are.
