Jimmy Kimmel Live
Talk about fake news. Jimmy Kimmel and actress Kathryn Hahn on Wednesday shared a factually false story to mock Ronald Reagan. In what was supposed to be some sort of epic slam, Kimmel recounted a letter the then-eight-year-old Hahn wrote in 1982 to Ronald Reagan: “There was a movie of the week in ‘82... called The Day After.”
Hollywood loves to mock the Commander in Chief, some leaders more than others. The industry takes a different approach to the First Lady. It’s either hands off completely, an occasional joke lobbed in her direction or a more collaborative connection. Remember when Michelle Obama dropped by Sesame Street to talk nutrition?What about when First Lady Barbara Bush chatted up Big Bird to spread the joy of reading?
During his opening monologue on Tuesday evening, ABC late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel once again attacked Donald Trump, this time asserting that the Republican president “wanted to make it look like he did something big” in his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un -- “whether he did something big or not.” The host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! tried to cast doubt on the results of the meeting in Singapore by declaring: "Trump claims he got North Korea to commit to destroying a major missile testing site,” but the president “was not leaving the summit without claiming he made a deal.”
Appearing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live Thursday night – aired early Friday morning – left-wing comedian Samantha Bee revealed that her family in Canada has been so horrified by what they see in the news media about the United States that they fear for her safety. She even told Kimmel that her dad sent her a bullet-proof vest.
While making ABC’s annual “upfront” presentation to advertisers on Tuesday, left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel just couldn’t resist slamming the President, who he described as “a lunatic,” and as a result, “we’re all gonna die.” The liberal comedian made these remarks even after claiming in a preliminary interview that “I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves.”
During a fawning interview with CNN’s Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta on Wednesday night, aired early Thursday morning, ABC’s left-wing late night host Jimmy Kimmel repeatedly heaped praise on the reporter for his notorious hostility toward the Trump administration.
Recently, a couple media outlets have published stories pondering a mysterious thought: Are people getting tired of our 9-to-5 Trump bashing, and would they rather us tell jokes that aren’t just cheap shots at conservatives? Vice writer Harry Cheadle wondered the same thing when he published an article titled, “‘SNL’ Cold Opens Are Unfunny, Elitist Pieces of Liberal Propaganda.”
There was more Mike Pence shaming in the media on Tuesday, and while no one’s surprised anymore when liberal celebrities embrace these tactics, it’s slightly disappointing to see an old friend of the vice president criticize the man on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night segment.
Michelle Wolf is not the first so-called comic to maliciously insult conservatives and Republicans at a White House Correspondents' Association dinner, but she was intentionally mean-spirited, and even after the blowback, she's unrepentant. Members of the liberal mainstream media have expressed disapproval over some of Wolf's comments, saying she went too far. But I'm not buying it. This is what passes as liberal humor these days. Just watch Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher and Stephen Colbert and tell me their humor is less malevolent.
Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t even try anymore. If you are a conservative, he hates you. If you’re a liberal, he’ll turn into a lame PR machine that sounds more like an Access Hollywood hack. On Tuesday, the comedy host featured far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren for two segments. Kimmel offered no tough questions and, instead, traded compliments with the “fun grandma.”
There’s been quite an uproar since Roseanne Barr announced that her character in the upcoming Roseanne reboot is a Trump supporter. The Washington Post even compared her to fictional bigot Archie Bunker. On Thursday night, Barr battled liberal comedian Jimmy Kimmel, telling him that he was “f-[bleeped] far out” when it came to the country.
During his political-centric monologue on Thursday night, “America’s Conscience” and ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel quipped that he’s “never wanted to see and not see anything more than I either do or do not want to see” a Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels sex tape and lobbied for donations to her legal defense fund so any sex tape(s) and/or explicit photo(s) can be made public.
