Last night, in an emotional monologue on the murder of George Floyd, the riots in Minneapolis, and the cycle of violence, Jimmy Kimmel took aim at President Trump for exacerbating and inflaming already existing racial problems in America.
“I especially want to pose this to older people who have already lived this nightmare of race riots already in the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s, now. Is this who you want leading us? A President who clearly and intentionally inflames violence in the middle of a riot to show how tough he is? A Commander in Chief who intentionally puts members of our military in a position of having to shoot a fellow American on sight? I don’t care what you are. Right, left, Republican, Democrat. I can’t imagine that there are many of us who want that. Enough is enough. We have to vote this guy out already.
“And we need to work on this problem with have. This blatant double standard, because when you stand in front of the flag and you put your hand on your heart and you pledge allegiance for liberty and justice for all, we don’t have that for all. I mean, I have it. A lot of you have it. But it’s not for all.”
After another night of violence on Friday, the President has ordered the Army to prepare military police units for deployment into Minneapolis.
