As NewsBusters has been reporting for months, late night comics have been tearing the atrocious rollout of ObamaCare apart.
Conceivably the best job done to date was by ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel who during his opening monologue Tuesday evening absolutely savaged the law whilst ridiculing the uninformed young people in this country that have ignorantly supported something that clearly harms them (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Can you imagine a priest taking a group of altar boys to see the movie “Deliverance?”
According to Tim Robbins, when he was an altar boy in New York City, at the age of ten or eleven, a priest at his church took him and some other altar boys into Times Square to see the R-rated film which contained a brutal homosexual rape scene.
ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel began his program Thursday evening bashing the Fox News Network.
After mocking Megyn Kelly and contributor Monica Crowley for claiming that the historical figures Santa Claus and Jesus Christ were white, he presented a trailer for a Fox News version of “It’s a Wonderful Life” wherein Henry Potter is the hero trying to preserve Bedford Falls as an example of free market capitalism against the wishes of the evil, draft-dodging, communist George Bailey (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
As NewsBusters has been reporting the past few months, late night comics have been having a field day with the disaster that is ObamaCare.
On ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday, the host spent a good part of his monologue trashing the program including an observation that “the number of speeches Obama has made about affordable healthcare is greater than the number of people who have actually signed up for affordable healthcare” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
As NewsBusters has been reporting for almost two months, the disastrous rollout of Barack Obama's signature piece of legislation has made him the butt of late night jokes.
On ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, the host repeatedly mocked the President's fundraising trip to California saying, "He basically turned the westside of Los Angeles into the traffic equivalent of the ObamaCare website" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Proving there's never too small a protest to be newsworthy to the Left, Katy Steinmetz of Time magazine reported "On Monday, protesters marched through the streets of San Francisco carrying pictures funnyman Jimmy Kimmel's face - with a Hitler mustache drawn above his lip and a swastika by his side. More than 100 people, largely Asian Americans, were still fuming about a skit that aired on Kimmel's late-night show earlier this month."
Kimmel and ABC were apologizing for a shutdown-mocking skit that aired on October 16, in which Kimmel sat down with school kids to talk politics. When asked what should be done about America's debts to China, a boy replied that one solution might be to "kill everyone in China." (The video can be seen here.) Kimmel chuckled and said, "That's an interesting idea." He jokingly asked a follow-up: "Should we allow the Chinese to live?"
America’s late night comics have been tearing the President apart for the disastrous rollout of the ObamaCare exchanges.
On Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday, the host said, “I find it fascinating that our national healthcare website barely functions and yet every single porn site in the world works like a charm” (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Although the folks at Jimmy Kimmel Live tried presenting it as a spontaneous skit, anyone with a lukewarm intelligence quotient knew they really were doing a five minute public service announcement for ObamaCare.
If you think guest Owen Wilson was able to create all the charts he had AND get Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to join him AND have a choir that included the band Panic! at the Disco sing a song about healthcare without any assistance from Kimmel or his staff, I’ve got some beachfront property in Florida to sell you (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
I’m not sure which polls late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel is citing in his prefatory remarks, which include the claim that “Americans don’t like Obamacare but love what’s in it.” Nevertheless, his man-on-the-street interviews paint a sobering picture of Americans’ ignorance when it comes to the president’s signature health care reform law — the bone of contention that led to the current partial government shutdown.
The hilarious experiment is an indictment as well of the law’s complexity: In its original incarnation it was 2,700 pages long.
Was Oprah Winfrey trying to distract attention Wednesday from the stir she caused accusing a Swiss shop clerk of racism, or just doing PR for the new film she's starring in?
Regardless of the answer, appearing on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live, Winfrey shocked a member of the studio audience with a new Ford Fusion (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel invited recently self-outed gay NBA player Jason Collins on his program Wednesday evening along with twin brother Jarron.
At the end of the interview, Kimmel gave Jarron an “I’m The Straight One” t-shirt.
Harrison Ford took a cheap shot at former President George W. Bush Wednesday evening.
Appearing on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the actor claimed he never believed anything Bush said (video follows with transcript and commentary):
