Curtis Cook, a writer for Comedy Central’s Jim Jefferies Show, said Wednesday that he wishes outgoing Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy had been shot instead of former president John F. Kennedy or Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.
“I wish this Kennedy had been shot instead of the other ones,” Cook tweeted in response to Associated Press reporting the announcement.

Cook’s boss, Australian Jim Jefferies, regularly criticizes the Second Amendment. Jefferies raised eyebrows after blaming the U.S. gun laws on the 2017 Las Vegas shooting that killed 59 people and injured 851.
