Jimmy Kimmel Live
The media can turn anyone into a hero or a villain. In the case of R&B pop star R. Kelly, they’ve promoted his career and downplayed at least 15 years of sex crime allegations. He’s been featured both as a guest and musical performer on top network shows. Late night TV talk programs such as The Tonight Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well as daytime’s Good Morning America, have given the singer glowing airtime and promotions for his many albums.
Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is extremely biased against Donald Trump and he attempted to get guest Peyton Manning to denigrate the Republican president. Unsuccessfully. He said he had heard the future Hall of Fame quarterback had played golf with the president and he wanted badly to extract red meat from Manning.
During the opening monologue of his eponymous ABC late-night comedy show Wednesday, Jimmy Kimmel crudely joked that President Trump could shoot dead one of the three co-hosts on the Fox News Channel’s Fox & Friends and still have the other two’s full support.
Liberals and Democrats continue hammering away at President Donald Trump on a daily basis in a variety of formats, but Jimmy Kimmel, the host of ABC’s late-night talk show, found a new way to slam the Republican occupant of the White House. Using a Schoolhouse Rock-style video entitled “I’m Just a Lie,” Kimmel managed to hammer away not only at Trump, but also Senior Counselor Kellyanne Conway and White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.
On Tuesday, left-wing City University of New York journalism professor Jeff Jarvis took to MSNBC’s 9 a.m. ET hour to celebrate late-night host Jimmy Kimmel supposedly being poised to “save health care” from Republican plans to repeal ObamaCare. Talking to anchor Stephanie Ruhle, Jarvis proclaimed: “The night he gave his first spiel on the show about his son I tweeted...that he will save health care.”
In the world of liberals, only their personal anecdotes matter and can’t be challenged. On CNN’s New Day early Tuesday morning, liberal co-hosts Alisyn Camerota and Chris Cuomo invited colleagues Brian Stelter and Bill Carter to laud ABC comic Jimmy Kimmel for his health care position that “no one should be able to dispute.”
Personal anecdotes suddenly matter to the left when talking about health care. After late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel went on an emotional rant last week for his sick child over the GOP’s health care bill provisions, the media rewarded him with gushy praise over the “brave” admission, using it as a launch pad to attack Republicans with for getting rid of ObamaCare. Well Monday night Kimmel was back at it again, this time personally targeting specific Republicans and conservative outlets over their criticism of his sob story’s appeal to emotion over hard facts.
Just a few days after CBS’s Stephen Colbert unleashed a vulgar tirade against President Trump, a new study has documented just how unfriendly late night TV has been to the new Commander-in-Chief. The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University counted an incredible 1,060 jokes directed against Trump during the President’s first 100 days in office. That’s more than ten times as many barbs as aimed at all Democrats — combined — during the same period (95), and considerably more than both Barack Obama and Bill Clinton received during the entire first year of their presidencies (936 and 440 jokes, respectively).
I feel your pain. But please use your brain. On Monday, late-night TV comedian Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue about his newborn son. His baby was born with a congenital heart defect that required emergency open-heart surgery.
Liberals in the news media hate government funding cuts, especially cuts that threaten promoters of their agenda. Which is why they were so outraged about cuts to left-wing public broadcasting programs that some lied to viewers and readers about the consequences.
On Wednesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, actor and former Obama staffer Kal Penn appeared to talk about his new show Designated Survivor. Since he plays the White House Press Secretary on the fictional show, Kimmel asked Penn if Sean Spicer influenced his acting at all. Penn took that opportunity to mock Spicer as a joke and praise the former press secretary, Josh Earnest, as a more honorable mentor that influenced his role.
The 89th Academy Awards, aka The Oscars, was broadcast by ABC live from the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night, hosted by late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. As with other award shows of late, politics reared its ugly liberal head and showed us exactly why Hollywood is often referred to derisively as "La La Land."
