You can just feel the eye rolls all over the country with this one. Since the Florida shooting, and the appearances of kids from that school hitting the media, the left has gone into a lather over their pleas for gun control. In fact, they want to lower the voting age and put kids in charge, according to liberal talk show host, Stephen Colbert.
Newsbusters has the story:
Comedian turned late-night host Stephen Colbert wasn’t joking Tuesday night when he actually proposed that we let children run the government. After blasting Senator Marco Rubio’s dismissal that gun bans weren’t effective, the CBS Late Show host praised the teen activists for giving him “hope” that change would happen, on his February 20 show. “Until we do something about guns, you can’t vote if you’re over 18,” Colbert gushed.
“There is one group that does give me hope that we can do something to protect the children and, sadly, it’s the children,” he gushed as the audience cheered.
“Hell, yeah. Good for them,” the host joined in the applause.“These students saw their leaders doing nothing and said, ‘Hold my root beer,’” he joked.
CBS then played several soundbites of students bashing the NRA and GOP lawmakers for not “doing anything” about gun violence.
After that last soundbite, Colbert agreed with the teen that we weren’t doing enough.
“He’s right. The adults aren’t cutting it anymore,” he stated, demanding that we let kids take over the government.
“I think we need to change the voting age. Until we do something about guns, you can’t vote if you’re over 18. And it’s more– I’d feel better. I’d feel better,” Colbert gushed.
You just can’t make this stuff up, folks. The constant knee-jerk reactions from the left are enough to drive you crazy.
