Jimmy Kimmel is emotionally wrenched by the horrible massacre in Las Vegas, where he grew up. He’s angry, too. The conscientious comedian is tired of hearing the media refrain that we can do nothing to prevent gun violence. Because, as he says, “of course there’s something we can do about it.” “I don’t know why […]
Following two nights of intense monologues against the Graham-Cassidy bill, Jimmy Kimmel doubled down again on Thursday with a special guest appearance by Senator Al Franken (R-MN) — whose combination of wit and wonkish wisdom is so reliably effective against right-wing lies. “Usually I don’t like it when comedians get involved in politics,” Franken deadpans, […]
Yesterday Jimmy Kimmel’s Tuesday night monologue criticizing the Graham-Cassidy health care bill — and Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), co-sponsor of that “scam” — erupted into a nationwide debate. Cassidy and Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) both appeared on television to defend their radical legislation, while other Republican voices piped up to attack Kimmel. The insouciant Kimmel […]
Jimmy Kimmel is usually a sunny, funny guy. But at the moment, he’s very, very angry. So angry, in fact, that the comedian and late-night host devoted his Tuesday night monologue to a rant about Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), co-sponsor with Lindsey Graham (R-SC) of the latest Republican attempt to gut the health care system. […]
Lest anyone consider Kimmel too partisan, he then opened up a friendly dialogue via remote with Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA), who said publicly that any health care bill should pass “the Jimmy Kimmel test,” meaning every child in America must be fully insured.
The comic naturally found that pleasing, but pressed Cassidy toward a broader and more democratic definition. And before the senator departed, Kimmel presented him with a new, improved, and much more radical “Jimmy Kimmel test” for American health care, plus an obvious way to pay for it.
More than seven million people have watched Jimmy Kimmel’s gripping, heartfelt monologue about his newborn son’s heart surgery — and his message about health insurance for all — on YouTube this week.
Jimmy Kimmel is furious over the United Airlines incident in Chicago that went viral yesterday, with video of a pair of goons dragging a hapless and bloodied customer off an overbooked flight. And what makes the late night host even madder than what happened is how United executives responded — with a Twitter message expressing half-hearted regret for the need to “re-accomodate” those unfortunate passengers.
Jimmy Kimmel imagines an all-too-plausible reaction to the Congressional Budget Office warning that 24 million Americans could lose their health insurance under his health bill: “Trump said those numbers were cooked by the microwave that’s been spying on him in Trump Tower.”
Kimmel couldn’t ignore the Meryl in the room, singling out the “overrated” Streep for an ironically Trumpian riff that concluded with a standing ovation for her. Later in the show, hoping that the president would be watching, Kimmel tweeted “U Up?” at Trump.
President Trump’s ongoing feud with the media was on full display at the 89th annual Academy Awards, where stars and presenters shared spirited reflections on the new administration’s first month.
With his experiments in “unnecessary censorship” — strategically placing bleeps where they were never needed — Jimmy Kimmel adds meaning to the most clichéd remarks. In an instant, the bleeped celebrities and politicians seem to be speaking their minds instead of merely blathering.
Grouchy citizens complain about every conceivable fault in their mean tweets about Obama, and of course almost everything that goes wrong for them is President Obama’s fault.
Gary Johnson will never be president. So what’s next? ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has a way to turn this political lemon into comedy lemonade.
A few weeks ago, The Washington Post published a history of Donald Trump’s use of fake names to plant stories about himself in the pages of tabloid magazines across the country. The article highlighted one such call between Trump — going by the name “John Miller,” who said he was a representative of Trump’s — and Sue […]
Conan O’Brien decided that with everybody comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler, he would bring on a special guest to respond to the charge.
Larry Wimore: “That’s right, you’re the one who opened your big mouth and got in the bed with the Devil — now he just wants you to keep that mouth open.”
The late night shows were all discussing one topic: The Super Tuesday results, and Donald Trump’s continued takeover of the Republican Party.
The late night hosts examined the ways in which the other GOP candidates are simply failing to mount a response to Donald Trump.
Jimmy Fallon as Trump: “I have to stay in the race. Otherwise a Clinton will be in the White House again. I mean, who wants to see something from the ’90s come back in 2016?”
Trevor Noah tells Rubio to be like Ben Carson: “Go home, get some fresh clothes — because let’s be honest, you just @#$% your pants.”
Conan O’Brien had a phone call with “Donald Trump,” who revealed the secret behind his gracious concession speech: Every single Xanax pill he could find.
Jimmy Kimmel sat down with Donald Trump himself, and decided to surprise The Donald with a special new children’s book: “Winners Aren’t Losers.”
