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.”
The August issue of the women's magazine Glamour is the Comedy Issue, so they rounded up female comedy writers for all the liberal late-night shows to address diversity in the writers' room and how feminism pervades the late-night scene. Molly McNearney, Jimmy Kimmel's wife and head writer, unleashed the "WTF" on the idea of Hillary pantsuit jokes during the campaign. But feminists are fine with mocking Melania and Ivanka Trump.
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?
While young gun-control activists like David Hogg and Emma González are repeatedly praised by the liberal media, one truly remarkable hero of Parkland is Kyle Kashuv, who despite being lambasted, shunned, and rejected, is still fighting for pro-Second Amendment school violence prevention.
In light of Roseanne Barr’s racist Tuesday morning tweet, ABC cancelled the revival of its 80’s/90’s sitcom Roseanne, starring Roseanne Barr and John Goodman, after only one season despite it having fetched 18 million viewers for its premiere and been renewed for another season.
Hours after ABC cancelled Roseanne Barr’s show over a profoundly racist tweet, severe personal mockery of conservatives was still welcomed. On Jimmy Kimmel Live, the ABC host suggested the Golden State Warriors beat the Houston Rockets in the NBA’s Western Conference finals because the Rockets had a bad-luck charm: Ted Cruz. Kimmel mocked his looks, suggesting fans thought it was “Grandpa Munster Bobblehead Night.” Then he said “he looks like a blobfish" -- a species ranked number one on the Ugliest Animals list.
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.
Soon after the Santa Fe, Texas school shooting, journalists and celebrities attacked those who they believe were the true culprits in the tragedy: Law-abiding gun owners and Second Amendment supporters. MSNBC host Chris Matthews was frustrated that “reasonable people have so little power at the ballot box” compared to gun-rights voters and was frustrated that the NRA seemed to be “immune to justice.” Celebrities also engaged in the demonization of gun-rights supporters. The following is a collection (so far) of the ugliest attacks on gun rights supporters in the wake of the Santa Fe, Texas, school shooting.
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.
Need more evidence that there are two Americas? Here: Left-wing hatred of Melania Trump is inversely proportional to flyover admiration for the first lady. In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump's Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as "not culturally American," former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former first lady Barbara Bush's funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery.
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.”
