In his first live-in-studio appearance since taking office during the pandemic, President Joe Biden sat down with late-night comedy host Jimmy Kimmel to let off a little steam and set the record straight on inflation and gun violence plaguing Americans. Like most Americans, the late-night comic is impatient for action on guns -- and jokingly prodded the president.
Biden explained that he has done executive orders on guns but some things are beyond executive power alone. Then he took a poke at his predecessor.
"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," Biden told Kimmel. "I often get asked, 'look the Republicans don't play it square, why do you play it square?' Well, guess what? If we do the same thing they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy."
