Jimmy Kimmel Insults Nearly 250,000 #GoFundTheWall Donors, Calls Them ‘Dopey People,’ Meth Addicts
Jimmy Kimmel used his show to trash the nearly 250,000 people who have donated to a GoFundMe for a border wall, calling them “dopey people” and saying that they are “dipping into their meth money.”
The attack on conservatives who want to secure on borders came during his show on Thursday evening.
The fundraiser has raised nearly $15 million in less than a week.
Kimmel began his segment by trashing President Donald Trump over the government shutdown, saying “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.”
Kimmel then went on to insult nearly a quarter of a million people, and taking aim at the GoFundMe creator, Brian Kolfage, an Iraq War veteran and three-time amputee.
“This Trump supporter, a guy named Brian Kolfage, started a GoFundMe campaign to raise $1 billion for the wall. He launched it on Sunday. It’s already up to almost $9 million,” Kimmel began.
“People, this is what people do with their disposable income when they don’t have loans from college to pay off. 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,” Kimmel asserted.
