Halfway through Jimmy Kimmel’s latest monologue, it appears that the comic intends to avoid politics altogether. Instead, Kimmel laments the hollow consumerism and awkward shopping moments of Valentine’s Day, offering that robots, not people, should be taking calls for flowers and cards. That way, lovers wouldn’t have to give away embarrassing bedroom-nicknames and intimate secrets […]
President Donald Trump has taken plenty of selfish, vain positions over the years. But no one shall perceive Trump’s real agenda when it comes to Mother Nature herself. Except of course Jimmy Kimmel. It’s all so clear to the comic now. The POTUS has some strong feelings about the wind…and we can see why. Trump’s […]
President Trump says “fake news” so often, it’s easy to forget he co-opted the term from reports about Russian bots on social media. Russia pushed actual falsehoods at Americans in 2016. Trump somehow distorted that story into an attack on CNN. The Donald has savaged ABC too. But the network’s top comic Jimmy Kimmel is […]
With the possible exception of Colbert, nobody trolls Trump with the wit and gusto of Kimmel. In this clip Jimmy opens with a stinging review of the low ratio between Trump’s working and golfing, moves on to his size-obsessed nuclear Twitter throw-down with Kim Jong Un, and then fact-checks the most delusional Trump tweet of […]
Toting his super-cute baby boy Billy, fresh from heart surgery last week, Jimmy Kimmel is back with a sharp message for Congress: Fully fund the Children’s Health Insurance Program known as CHIP – and do it right now instead of prioritizing the Trump tax plan. “I don’t know what could be more disgusting than putting […]
Trump’s tweets about sexual harassment at NBC News — and the firing of Today host Matt Lauer — led Jimmy Kimmel to ask: Does he even know who he is? It’s a question the media could ask about the president every day, given his bizarre conduct, but as always Jimmy Live is forthright where others […]
We always knew Kellyanne Conway loves to party — and she was celebrating the anniversary of Trump’s election when Jimmy Kimmel caught up to her. With the president in Vietnam for an international conference, Conway couldn’t resist tweaking liberals like Kimmel who recall Trump’s history of draft-dodging. “Suck it, John McCain!” she exclaimed. “Our president […]
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.”
