Jimmy Kimmel Puts Federal Employees to Work During Government Shutdown - Prison Guard

  • Published: 08 January 2019
  • Today is Day 17 of the U.S. government shutdown. Nearly 800,000 federal employees are working without pay. So we are putting a federal employee to work every night until the shutdown ends. Tonight, Jimmy gives a job to John Kostelnik, a Law Enforcement Prison Guard at the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, CA.

      *THEY'RE CORRUPT ANYWAYS* He's also misusing the term law enforcement officer. He's a correctional officer and nothing more.

            In 1974 Randy Newman put out an album called "Good Old Boys:, and on that album is a song called "Mr. President " : @ a direct reference to Nixon and the mid 70's recession.

            Listen to the "Mr President" song and circulate it to as many federal workers, politicians, and media outlets as you possibly can. I'll be doing the same--My hope is that "Mr President" will become a revised rally cry song, a theme song, for all of affected by this American hostage crisis, and will help bring us together to end this horrible shutdown.

                However, the Federal employee he hired is a Federal Law Enforcement Officer who works as a Prison Guard. Whose sole job is to maintain a wall to keep people from entering areas of the United States illegally.

                Got to love an ironical laugh.

                                      I like Kimmel, but that was cruel and unnecessary, he made fun of a serious and sad situation. He offered a job for one night out of 800,000 jobless people, and he did it for ratings, I still like you Jimmy, but you just some of my respect.

No one goes thru Arizona anyways, and New Mexico has a natural Rocky Mountain border. So does Texas w the rio grande so technically 3 states don’t need a wall

Especially the union reps that tell the union members to vote for what benefits them most . Look up the VICE video , they reap what they sow in my opinion. This guy openly says he voted for Trump ... no sympathy from me.
