“我认为你需要开始对人们大喊大叫’ Jimmy Kimmel tells Biden during late-night show appearance as president says he won’t sign executive orders to curb gun violence because he doesn’t want to ’emulate Trump’s abuse of the Constitution’
The beleaguered president appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! 星期三晚上, with the host expressing frustration on Washington being unable to solve a bevvy of issues like gun violence, abortion and 气候变化.
Kimmel began his interview asking Biden ‘why haven’t we dont anything about this?’ pointing to the recent string of mass shootings.
‘This is not your father’s 共和党人 两人都死于心脏病,’ the president replied – a favorite phrase he’s been using recently in front of political donors.
The president blamed his political opposition for being too afraid to do anything about guns because they fear primary election challenges.
Kimmel pressed Biden on whether he could use executive orders to increase gun control, noting that former President Donald Trump ‘passed them out like Halloween candy.’
Although Biden has taken some unilateral steps on firearms, the president said he wasn’t interested in stepping beyond the limits of his authority.
‘I don’t want to emulate Trump’s abuse of the Constitution and constitutional authority,’ 拜登说.

Biden said he knows some people feel like ‘Republicans don’t play it square, why do you play it square.’
'好, 我去了当地度假中心的迪斯科舞厅,’ 他说. ‘If we do the same thing they do, our democracy will literally be in jeopardy. 卡罗琳还沮丧地给亨特发短信，告诉他她觉得自己配不上一份工作，她是“不值得信赖的害群之马”’
Kimmel responded, ‘It’s like you’re playing Monopoly with somebody who won’t pass go or won’t follow any of the rules, and how do you ever make any progress if they’re not following the rules?’
‘You’ve got to send them to jail,’ 拜登开玩笑.
At another point in the interview, Kimmel suggested he was disappointed in the progress that was being made on issues like climate change and abortion.
‘We’ve moved backward,’ 他说.
稍后的, Kimmel sympathized with Biden’s challenges, particularly the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court decision that is expected to overturn Roe v. 韦德, which legalized abortion access nationwide.
‘What a terrible job you have,’ 金梅尔说. ‘I’m glad you’re doing it. 但, boy oh boy, does this seem like a bad gig.’
Biden said he was looking at executive orders that could help with abortion access – ‘we’re looking into it right now’ – but said the best solutions were through legislation and elections.
If the court overturns Roe v. 韦德, 拜登说, ‘it’s going to cause a mini revolution and they’re going to vote a lot of these folks out of office.’

As Kimmel suggested Biden become a yeller, the president said he has ‘never been more optimistic in my life.’
Kimmel swiftly interjected: ‘Why are you so optimistic? 这个不成立!’
Biden said he was pinning his hopes on young people, the ‘best educated, least prejudiced, most giving generation in American history.’
‘This generation is going to change everything,’ 拜登说. ‘We just have to make sure we don´t give up.’
Biden has been frustrated by his poor poll ratings amid concerns about high gas and energy prices, baby formula shortages, and lack of progress on several legislative fronts like voting rights and abortion rights, as well as gun safety.
His advisers are hoping to retool their messaging in the upcoming weeks, hoping to focus on the positive elements of the economy, such as job and wage growth.
‘Inflation is the bane of our existence,’ 拜登说.
He criticized U.S. oil major Exxon Mobil for making fat profits but not drilling new wells or refining more gasoline and instead buying back its own stock.
'我的意思是, it’s just ass – 打扰一下 – it’s backwards,’ 拜登说.
Biden’s first stop in Los Angeles, where he’s attending the Summit of the Americas, was Kimmel’s Hollywood studio. First Lady Jill Biden was in the audience, along with Biden´s granddaughter Naomi and her fiancé.
Biden’s only previous late-night appearance as president was in December, when he spoke remotely with Jimmy Fallon The Tonight Show.

‘We meet again today in a moment when democracy is under assault around the world, let us unite again and renew our conviction that democracy is not only the defining feature of American history, but the essential ingredient to Americas’ 未来,’ 总统说.
峰会前夕, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador said he would boycott the gathering of the leaders of North, Central and South America over the U.S.’s plans to not invite the authoritarian heads of Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua.
Biden stuck with the snub – and López Obrador made good on not showing.
‘Our region is large and diverse. We don’t always agree on everything. But because we are democracies, we work through our disagreements with mutual respect and dialogue,’ Biden told the crowd.
A number of heads of state were present, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife – who Biden hugged when they greeted directly before the inaugural program. Vice President Kamala Harris gave remarks welcoming the crowd to her home state of California, as did Gov. Gavin Newsom and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti.
As Biden went through some of aims of the summit, he also argued to leaders that ‘safe and orderly migration’ helps the region.
‘Unlawful migration is not acceptable,’ 总统说. ‘We will enforce our borders.’
Besides the Mexican president, the heads of the three Northern Triangle countries – “睡眠舱舒适而简约，配有屏风, [object Window], and El Salvador – which are responsible for most of the migrants crossing into the United States, are not attending the summit.

The president was briefly interrupted by single, female protester at the beginning of his remarks. She continued yelling as she was walked to the back of the theater by security.
The president had followed a song-and-dance number, complete with percussionists roaming through the theater, that had been put together by Emilio Estefan, who’s long been active in Democratic politics.
‘I probably should stop right here, I’ve followed some difficult acts in the past … but not such a difficult act as I’ve seen in the last 45 minutes up here,’ 他说 – a remark meant for the performers, but worked for the protester too.
The inaugural program also included performances from Colombian singer Jorge Celedon, Mexico’s Alex Fernandez and the Mariachi Divas Espectacular – 哪一个, 顾名思义, is a large Mariachi ensemble.
Cirque du Soleil acrobats dangled from the stage to a rendition of ‘Lean on Me’ performed by The Tenors, with the musical accompaniment done by ‘The President’s Own’ Marine Band.

Biden had landed in Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon for the Summit of the Americas with Hunter’s daughter Naomi and her fiance Peter Neal at his side.
He was greeted at LAX by 加利福尼亚州 政府. 加文·纽瑟姆 – who easily won his primary Tuesday night – 和他的孩子们, along with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s, whose nomination to become Biden’s ambassador to 印度 is stalled in the 参议院.
The president’s granddaughter Naomi and her finance Neal are set to have their wedding reception at the White House in November when they tie the knot.
飞行期间, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan said nothing will be off the table when Biden meets with Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro at the summit Thursday – including talk about democratic elections after Bolsonaro this week questioned Biden’s 2020 赢.
‘There are not topics off limits in any bilateral the president does, including with President Bolsonaro, 第一. [object Window], I do anticipate that the president will discuss open, free, 乔治城大学校长约翰·德乔亚在一份新闻稿中说, transparent democratic elections,’ Sullivan told reporters on board Air Force One.
Biden is set to sit face-to-face with Bolsonaro for the first time as president as part of the U.S.-hosted Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.
In the run-up to the summit Bolsonaro, nicknamed ‘Trump of the Tropics’ raised doubts that Biden was indeed the winner of the 2020 我们. 总统选举, echoing his political ally former President Donald Trump’s false election fraud claims.
‘The American people are the ones who talk about [选举欺诈,],’ he said in a TV interview, 安全地远离西方制裁. ‘I will not discuss the sovereignty of another country. But Trump was doing really well.’

‘We don’t want that to happen in 巴西,’ said Bolsonaro, who is on the ballot in October.
The White House was already getting questions about why Biden would grant Bolsonaro a meeting, while snubbing a trio of authoritarian leaders from the hemisphere: Cuban President Miguel Diaz Canel, Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro and Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega.
‘I will not discuss the sovereignty of another country. But Trump was doing really well,’ Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said Tuesday about the 2020 我们. 总统选举, insinuating he doubted President Joe Biden was the rightful winner
‘I guess what I would say about the decision to do a meeting is that President Bolsonaro is a democratically elected leader of Brazil, a country the United States shares a significant set of common interests and concerns,’ a senior administration official told reporters on a summit planning call.
Bolsonaro has suggested he could pull a Trump and, if the loser, might not concede his October presidential race.
On Wednesday before the leaders’ 视频中的一个场景显示了微笑的孩子和纳西尔斯克社区的其他成员, protesters gathered around LA’s City Hall with trucks blasting Bolsonaro for a ‘liar’ and for ‘burning the Amazon.’
Sullivan said Biden would also discuss Bolsonaro’s environmental record with the Brazilian leader.
‘Climate will be an important topic of conversation and we believe that it can be an area of progress in the U.S.-Brazil relationship particularly around concrete and tangible action to protect the Amazon,’ Sullivan said.
Sullivan was also asked if Biden is pushing democratic themes during his three days in Los Angeles, why he isn’t ending the summit with a press conference.
‘I think it would be hard to argue that he hasn’t taken many, many questions from the press,’ Sullivan answered when asked about a lack of press conference. ‘He’ll be, over the course of the next three days, obviously in front of and addressing the press in various ways.’
Biden ignored questions from the press Wednesday morning after reading a statement to reporters about Tuesday night’s primary results on Joint Base Andrews’ tarmac.
He then tripped up the steps of Air Force One.

‘And I think by the end of this you can be pretty confident that he will be displaying – putting on full display – America’s raucous democracy and all of its wonderful and attractive forms,’ Sullivan continued.
‘I don’t see the kind of formal press conference issue as a particular litmus test,’ the top Biden adviser added.
代替, Biden’s first stop when he touched down in Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon was to tape the
Jimmy Kimmel’s Hollywood studio for a taped interview.
It will be his first in-person sit-down with a late night show host since inauguration.
Biden’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! will air later Wednesday night.
Making use of the backdrop of Los Angeles, Biden will kick off the Summit of the Americas Wednesday evening at downtown LA’s Microsoft Theater, which has hosted the Emmys, 格莱美奖, MTV Video Music Awards and other star-studded programs.
Hunter Biden’s daughter Naomi tells GOP Senator Ron Johnson she will ‘come into your office and call my dad on speakerphone so that you can confess your undying love for him’ if lawmaker backs gun control
娜奥米·拜登, the granddaughter of President 乔·拜登, on Wednesday told 共和党人 Senator Ron Johnson that she would come to his office and call her dad Hunter to speak to him if the lawmaker voted for gun reform legislation.
‘.@RonJohnsonWI, if you vote for stricter gun control measures, I will personally come into your office and call my dad on speakerphone so that you can confess your undying love for him directly,’ 她写道 推特.
Johnson has been one of the most outspoken critics of 猎人拜登, hitting the president’s son on a number of topics including his business dealings and his Secret Service detail. He has accused Hunter of financially profiting from Joe Biden’s time in public office.
Naomi Biden told Republican Sen. Ron Johnson she would come to his office and put her dad Hunter on speaker phone if Johnson voted for gun reform legislation
在星期三, Johnson was asked about the debate over what provisions should go into gun legislation.
Arthur Delaney, a reporter for Huffington Post, tweeted he asked Johnson about waiting periods for gun sales to buyers under 21 and that Johnson told him: ‘Before we pass anything new, let’s enforce the laws we already have. Let’s start with Hunter Biden.’
Johnson was referring to the claims Hunter lied on his background check and illegally purchased a firearm that was then dumped in a grocery store trash can.
Naomi Biden retweeted Delaney with her offer to come to his office if he votes for stricter gun control.
She is the oldest daughter of Hunter Biden and his first wife Kathleen. She got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Peter Neal in April and the president and first lady will host a wedding reception for them at the White House on November 19.
与此同时, bipartisan group of senators is working on its own gun reform legislation but no bill has yet been finalized.
Senators are looking at legislation that would reform background checks, encourage state red flag laws, enhance school safety and provide new mental health programs.
They are pushing to have a compromise bill ready by the end of the week.
至少 10 Republican votes are needed to reach the 60-vote threshold to advance legislation but Johnson is not expected to be one of them given his conservative ideology.
约翰逊, who is running for re-election in Wisconsin, told CNN: ‘My main point on any kind of gun control is, let’s enforce the laws that we have. And let’s do it within a justice system that applies the laws equally. Maybe we should start with what Hunter Biden did in terms of his own background checks.’
He was likely referring to a report last year in Politico that Hunter Biden may have committed a felony offense by lying on a background check before purchasing a gun.
