Biden Passes Buck on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” [Video]
President Joe Biden appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week, criticizing Republicans and former President Donald Trump.
Biden discussed gun control with Kimmel during the interview, which marked his first in-person appearance on a late-night talk show.
“A lot of it is intimidation by the NRA. Look, this is not your father’s Republican Party. This is a MAGA party,” Biden said.
Kimmel asked Biden about issuing an executive order on gun control, saying Trump “passed those out like Halloween candy.”
“I have issued executive orders within the power of the presidency to be able to deal with everything having to do with guns, gun ownership… all of the things that are within my power,” Biden responded.
“But what I don’t want to do, and I’m not being facetious, I don’t want to emulate Trump’s abuse of the constitution and constitutional authority.”
“I often get asked, ‘the Republicans don’t play it square, why do you play it square?'” Biden said. “If we do the same thing they do, our democracy would literally be in jeopardy. That’s not a joke!”
