JIMMY KIMMEL SURRENDERS: ‘American People Have Had Enough Trump-Bashing’

Posted on

 

In an interview with Deadline, Kimmel was asked whether he had prepared a “barrelful of barbs” for President Trump in his upcoming standup routine for ABC’s upfronts.

“Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully, it’ll be the last upfront of the Trump era, too,” Kimmel said.

“So, I don’t know, I don’t know how much focus there will be on 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,” Kimmel said of his comedy routine for the annual event that sees major advertisers gather to purchase airtime on networks, like ABC, ahead of the summer and fall TV seasons.

Kimmel went on to say that although his upcoming routine will not be a “Trump-free zone,” it will not be so focused on events in and around the White House.

“Well, I can’t imagine that it will be entirely Trump free, but I’m not planning on that to be my focus,” he said. “Already I’m seeing a lot of other things to point out, to make fun of.”

Since Trump was elected president, Kimmel has spent much of his comedic airtime attacking Trump, his family, and members of his administration. Prominent examples include describing Trump as “mentally ill” and mocking his wife Melania Trump’s Slovenian accent.

OSCAR RATINGS PLUNGE TO RECORD ALL TIME LOW… HEY, JUST BLAME TRUMP AND IT’S GONNA BE FINE!

Posted on

  • With Kimmel as host, the Academy basically told 50 percent of the country to go watch something else.”

 

Sunday night’s telecast of the 90th annual Academy Awards saw viewership plunge 20 percent from last year to a record-low 26.5 million.

High on politics and social justice issues, Sunday’s live Oscar broadcast on ABC also marked the first time on record the Oscars reached fewer than 30 million people.

“The previous low-water mark for the Oscars came in 2008, when No Country For Old Men won best picture, the Associated Press reports. “Last year’s show, also hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, reached 33 million viewers.”

For years, the Oscars had been the most-watched TV program after the Super Bowl. But it seems Americans had been tuning out awards shows for years. This year’s Grammy’s, for example, saw a 20 percent drop from a year ago. The three and a half hour CBS broadcast reaching an all-time low in the key adults 18-49 demo, with 19.8 million viewers.

The historically low Oscar ratings, though, was predictable given the show’s host Jimmy Kimmel, who blasts President Donald Trump on his late-night show, the left-wing politics taking center stage in the build-up to the show.

“The writing was on the wall for this ratings catastrophe all year,” Nolte writes. “Almost every other award show suffered massive audience erosion and there was no movie nominated for Best Picture for anyone to root for. Seven of the nine nominees averaged just $47 million at the box office, which means only about 5 million people saw them.”

“Bringing Jimmy Kimmel back for another round as host was also a big mistake. Kimmel is one of the most divisive and polarizing figures in the country, a Trump-hating Democrat who regularly lectures the rest of us about embracing socialized medicine and giving up our guns,” Nolte continued. “With Kimmel as host, the Academy basically told 50 percent of the country to go watch something else.”

JIMMY KIMMEL’S PAID THUG DISRUPTS ROY MOORE SPEECH AT CHURCH SERVICE

Posted on Updated on

 

On Thursday the Roy Moore Campaign blasted Jimmy Kimmel for using his paid thug Tony Barbieri to disrupt a PRAYER SERVICE in Alabama:

The U.S. Senate campaign of Judge Roy Moore is firing back at Jimmy Kimmel and his paid trickster Rich Barbieri—also known as “Jake Byrd”—for disrupting a worship service at which Moore spoke here on Wednesday night.

“Jimmy Kimmel and the ‘Hollywood elite’ cross the line when they invade our Churches under a disguise and attempt to make a mockery of our worship services,” Drew Messer, a senior adviser to Moore, told Breitbart News on Thursday morning after the incident at the church on Wednesday night.

On Wednesday evening, after the pastor of Magnolia Springs Baptist Church here in Theodore, Alabama, just outside Mobile warned attendees of a worship service at which Moore was speaking multiple times that it was against the law in Alabama to disrupt worship services, Barbieri proceeded to interrupt the worship service during Moore’s speech.

Earlier during the Judge’s remarks, a leftist protester who infiltrated the church started shouting at Moore. “But the whole town says you did it!” the man yelled as Moore began debunking the allegations against him. “The entire town? All the girls are lying?”

 

 

 

 

 

‘AMERICA’S CONSCIENCE’ JIMMY KIMMEL ON HARVEY WEINSTEIN: “I’m Not the Moral Conscience of America.”

Posted on

Jimmy Kimmel: “They’re saying that I’m calling myself the moral conscience of America, which I most certainly never did and most certainly never would” – the Daily Beast

 

( Washington Examiner ) CNN’s Bill Carter dubbed the ABC funnyman “America’s conscience.”

But following late-night television’s deafening silence in response to allegations that Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein is a prolific sexual predator, Kimmel said Friday he doesn’t want to hold the title bestowed on him by CNN.

“First of all, the Harvey Weinstein thing, people like this false equivalence of that’s somehow equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas,” he said Friday in an interview with “Good Morning America’s” Amy Robach.

Kimmel delivered a tearful monologue calling for stricter gun control laws within 24 hours of a deranged man shooting and killing more than 50 people at a country music festival in Clarke County, Nevada. In contrast, Kimmel didn’t touch the Weinstein story until Monday of this week.

The Weinstein story, “came out, like, I think moments before we went to tape on Thursday and we didn’t have a show on Friday,” he said in his defense.

The Weinstein story did indeed break last Thursday. Like many of his colleagues in the late-night comedy business, Kimmel didn’t touch the story until Monday of this week. However, as noted by the Daily Beast, Kimmel went after the story mostly as a means to attack Donald Trump Jr.

“Next time you’re defending your father and you think it’s a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly accused sexual predator, don’t. It doesn’t help,” Kimmel said.

He then made a joke about Weinstein.

“I’m not in the movie business,” Kimmel, who hosted the Oscars this year, said in response to critics who claim his righteous indignation extends only so far, and that it doesn’t include anything about sexual harassment or sexual abuse.

VIDEO OF JIMMY KIMMEL TELLING WOMEN: “GUESS WHAT’S IN MY PANTS, MAYBE YOU COULD PUT YOUR MOUTH ON IT .”

Daily Wire reports:

In the video, speaking to a pretty young blonde, Kimmel announces, “I’ve stuffed something in my pants, and you’re welcome to feel around on the outside of the pants. You have then ten seconds to guess what it is in my pants.”

As the blonde starts to grope him, Kimmel instructs, “You should use two hands.”

The next shot is of a brunette groping Kimmel’s crotch, as he comments, “You’ve done this before, haven’t you.”

 

Following that, another blonde is on her knees before him, groping him, as Kimmel tells her, “Maybe it would be easier if you put your mouth on it.”

The next shot is of Kimmel addressing yet another pretty blonde, asking her, “How old are you?” When she answers, “Eighteen,” he asks, “You sure of that? Cause old Jimmy doesn’t need to do time.”

Back to woman number one, fully groping him, as Kimmel quips, “You’re going to make a fine wife.”

Back to woman number two, as Kimmel asks her, “And your guess is?”

She replies, “A vibrator?”

Kimmel tells her, “A vibrator?” Then he pulls out an object from his pants, announcing, “No, it is actually a zucchini with a rubber band on it. But you could use it as a vibrator with a rubber band on it. Look,” as he vibrates it in his hand.

VIDEO: JIMMY KIMMEL ASKED PEOPLE ABOUT DEBATE BEFORE IT HAPPENED – AND THEY ALL PRETEND THEY WATCHED IT INSTEAD OF ADMITTING THEY DON’T KNOW

Posted on

 

( Fox News ) Jimmy Kimmel found some people who were definitely not qualified to weigh in on the first presidential debate.

That’s because when a show producer hit the streets of L.A. for the “Lie Witness News” segment, the much-anticipated debate had not actually happened yet.

As Kimmel noted, that didn’t really matter, since everyone wants to look like they know what’s going on.
