Standing Up for Students
Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday attacked conspiracy theorists who have suggested that students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. — where a gunman killed 17 people last week — might be actors.
“I want you to consider this, especially if you are a Trump supporter or a member of the N.R.A. Do you really think these kids, these teenagers who spoke out after a shooting at their school, are actors who are 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, and I’m worried about you.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
