Late night comedian Jimmy Fallon -who typically avoids political posturing and liberal attacks- announced Monday his plans to march alongside Parkland, Florida students at their anti-gun event in the nation’s capital; saying the high schoolers are “impressive and inspiring” and have started a “real revolution.”
“What the students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are doing is unbelievable. They’re speaking out with more guts, passion, conviction, and common sense than most adults. They’re high school students, it’s beyond impressive,” said Fallon.
“They are angry and they’re doing something about it,” he added. “This is a real revolution. They’ve organized a peaceful march on Saturday, March 24th in Washington, DC… I just want to say I stand behind you guys and I’ll be marching alongside you.”
