Pat Sajak, the host of Wheel of Fortune is a very funny man. If you are not following him on Twitter you are missing out. Sajak is also a political conservative. Every now and then Sajak lets the liberals in Hollywood have it.
After late night entertainer Jimmy Kimmel used his Monday night show to attack gun rights and gun owners, conservative game show host Pat Sajak came up with a response that mocked those in Hollywood who take their self-imposed roles of being America’s moral lecturers too seriously.
Sajak issued Kimmel an epic tweet on Twitter.
Kimmel, who CNN proclaimed to be “America’s conscience,” launched a full-force offensive in favor of gun control one day after the Las Vegas shootings.
“I’ve been reading comments from people who say, ‘This is terrible but there’s nothing we can do about it.’ But I disagree with that intensely, because of course there’s something we can do about it,” he said, according to The Daily Wire.
“There are a lot of things we can do about it. But we don’t. Which is interesting, because when someone with a beard attacks us, we tap phones, we invoke travel bans, we build walls. We take every possible precaution to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” he added.

“But when an American buys a gun and kills other Americans, then there’s nothing we can do about that,” he added. “And, uh, Second Amendment, I guess, our forefathers wanted us to have AK47s, I assume.”
OK, let me explain this again: We’re celebs. We’re wiser & more empathetic than you. We are famous. Please take our opinions more seriously.
Well….SOME of you truly are @patsajak ! I wish there were more voices like yours!
Celebrities are people who get paid enormous amounts of money to play pretend life, which causes them to lose perspective about reality…
You’re the best! !
Others said that the celebrity moralizing was a bit much to swallow.
A funnyman who used to swig beer on TV & show girls bouncing on trampolines is “America’s conscience”? Not a stretch https://twitter.com/CNN/status/915540718525042688 …pic.twitter.com/n70gbsvQij
Thank you Pat! Nice to know that someone out there in La La Land understands that screen time doesn’t equal IQ points.
