The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon mocked the National Rifle Association (NRA) following the New York lawsuit against their leaders by sending his “thoughts and prayers” on Thursday night.
New York Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit against the leaders of the NRA, claiming CEO Wayne LaPierre and other executives spent years defrauding the organization for their own benefit. The lawsuit demands that LaPierre and the other leaders repay the organization’s members and that the organization itself dissolves.
