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.

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.

( 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.
