During his ABC late night show Thursday, nasty left-wing host Jimmy Kimmel fired off personal attacks on California Republican gubenatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner. The juvenile insults came following Jenner's recent appearance on The View to discuss why she was running for governor and was treated poorly by the partisan liberal hosts.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg acted like they didn’t know each other, despite being friends for years. “It's always a pleasure to be with all the ladies, and especially you. Whoopi, we've been friends for -- " said Jenner. “Pah,” Goldberg interrupted, sounding annoyed.
It was quite a contrast from the April 26, 2017 edition of The View when then-co-host Jedediah Bila lobbied, “I mean, would you run for office? I'm serious!”
During his late-night ramble, Kimmel referred to Jenner as “Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner Wig.”
He then ranted: “Because I mean look at this. The resemblance is uncanny. They’ve really- they've got all the same moves. The interview is a lot of nonsense; she's just trying to get attention. Caitlyn Jenner has the better chance of being the next Batman then she does the governor of California.”
Jenner proceeded to fire back at Kimmel with a series of tweets, calling him out on his hypocrisy.
“Last night, @jimmykimmel called me Donald Trump with a wig,” Jenner tweeted. “He obviously believes that trans women are simply men with wigs on. Where is the outrage from the left or LGBT community? Being WOKE must be optional if you are a Democrat."
But the tweeting did not stop there. Jenner also called out how Kimmel received a pass from the woke crowd when he wore blackface for a skit years ago.
Jenner further tweeted: “Also @jimmykimmel got a pass from the woke while he asked women to fondle him in public. His treatment of women is wrong. Disgusting. Vile.”
As of now, Kimmel has responded with a smiling picture, indicating that he does not care if his comments offended her.
Kimmel’s attempts at humor have been brought to viewers by Old Navy. Their contact information is linked.
Here is a transcript of the June 10th show:
ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live!
11:40:52 p.m. Eastern
JIMMY KIMMEL: Well, he won't be missed. I have to confess something; I did not keep up with the Kardashians. Did they turn out okay? Like, none of them married a crazy person or anything. Right? How's the dad? Bruce, the Olympic guy. Good? If you've been keeping up with Caitlyn, you know that she is running for governor of our state. Caitlyn Jenner car-crashian appeared on The View today. To promote that. And right off the bat, it did not go great.
WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Welcome back to "The View" Caitlyn Jenner.
CAITLYN JENNER: Well, thank you very much. It's always a pleasure to be with all the ladies, and especially you. Whoopi, we've been friends for-
KIMMEL: Let’s here that noise one more time
KIMMEL: Yeah, and that's just how the interview started. Isn't that Donald Trump in a Caitlyn Jenner wig? Because I mean look at this. The resemblance is uncanny. They’ve really- they've got all the same moves. The interview is a lot of nonsense; she's just trying to get attention. Caitlyn Jenner has the better chance of being the next Batman then she does the governor of California. She knows little to nothing about anything, really. The interview ended as gracefully as it began.
GOLDBERG: I have to cut you off because we're getting ready to go. Our thanks to cat -- Caitlyn Jenner –
JENNER: Always, I want to spend more time with you.
GOLDBERG: Well. We're here, you know? We're here.
KIMMEL: You won't be, but we are here. At least we still have Kim Jong-un to keep up with. The Kardashian of North Korea has been keeping up with diet and exercise.
