Jimmy Kimmel Live
The Washington Post knows a thing or two about being partisan as a business strategy. So the paper brought a rare level of expertise to a Friday article about how super-charging late night comedy shows with anti-Trump shtick is good for business and gaining a more loyal fanbase. According to The Post, being woke doesn’t work for all entertainers, but for many willing to commit to the political routine, Trump is the gift that keeps on giving.
Rapper Kanye West sat down with ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel on his late night show Thursday night to talk about a his career, family life and his support for President Trump. After famously meeting with President at Trump Tower last year, he has been ostracized by the media for his continued and unlikely support for Trump. West addressed the backlash he’s faced for his decision, blasting the left and the media for trying to “bully” him into liking their preferred candidate.
During Tuesday night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the eponymous host interviewed former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer about his new book, The Briefing: Politics, the Press, and the President. At one point, Kimmel asked Spicer what his mom thought about all of the abuse he had to put up with during his short tenure as Press Secretary. Kimmel ended up asking Spicer "Did she ever say, go in there and tell that son of a b**** Trump to stop making you lie?"
It’s refreshing to see a member of the Hollywood elite who decides to stay out of politics but instead focus on entertainment. The liberal media, however, this is akin to heresy. Kim Kardashian discussed her meeting with Donald Trump in May that lead to the release of Alice Maria Johnson on Jimmy Kimmel.
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.
