In a recent interview while on his state visit to the U.K., President Donald Trump defended the ownership of semiautomatic rifles as a form of “entertainment” for some Americans.
“Are guns entertainment?” host Piers Morgan asked in response.
“For some people, it’s entertainment,” Trump replied. “They go out and they shoot and they go to ranges and they have a tremendous amount of fun.”
That gun defense prompted comedian Chelsea Handler to add to increasing calls for Trump’s impeachment.
“Trump telling Piers Morgan that semi-automatic guns are for entertainment is grounds for impeachment,” she tweeted. “There are thousands of parents grieving and he calls guns entertainment. I can’t wait to elect a strong leader who has the courage to stand up to the NRA. That will be a leader.”
