#EndorseThis: Kimmel Crushes Fox News For Epic Trump-Kim Summit Gaffe

There’s a phenomenon in presidential politics that can be called the “dictator dance.” A Democratic commander-in-chief will issue executive orders and make unilateral decisions, followed by Republicans yelling “dictator!” Then when a Republican POTUS takes over, he does the same, followed by Democrats claiming he’s being a dictator. Nobody really gets hurt. Leave it to […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Slams Trump As Do-Nothing President On 500th Day

It’s a bigly week for President Trump. Monday marked his 500th day in office since taking over for Barack Obama. Jimmy Kimmel notes the occasion in his opening monologue, going through a list of Trump’s “greatest ever” accomplishments. As usual, Jimmy sticks the needle in 45’s hot air, showcasing the President’s vain tweet listing his […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Sticks It To Roseanne For Getting Kicked Off TV

By now, you’ve probably gotten the play-by-play. Roseanne Barr’s edgy Twitter feed finally went over the top yesterday as the aging sitcom actress tweeted racially-charged insults at former Obama staffer Valerie Jarrett. Retribution is swift in the 21st century. Within a day, the popular show Roseanne has been cancelled by ABC, and its former star […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel’s Resident Trickster Makes A Fool Out Of Pat Robertson

We can’t help but notice how hard Pat Robertson squints his eyes when he prays on TV. Perhaps the arch-conservative televangelist is trying to black-out the sins of his past, which include pushing for war in the Middle East, telling women not to be independent, and blaming 9/11 on homosexuals. Jimmy Kimmel believes in fighting […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Morphs Into Crude Trump Supporter In Front Of Kids, And Somehow It Works

Lost in the wake of so many wonderful on-air rants has been the voice of Jimmy Kimmel, who is making a case for himself as one of the best political sketch-comics in Hollywood. Today’s clip must have sounded like the world’s worst idea in the writers’ room. Kimmel greets a trio of kids, game-show style, […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Produces PSA For Melania’s ‘Cyberbullying’ Campaign

With Melania Trump kicking off her long-anticipated campaign against cyberbullying, her signature issue, Jimmy Kimmel observes that she could have made a major contribution by simply taking a hammer to her husband’s cellphone. Inevitably, Kimmel detects a whiff of bullshit wafting above this effort, snarking that “ironic” may not translate into Slovenian. But the late-night […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Destroys Trump Family Over Blatant “Made In America” Hypocrisy

We try to touch on breaking news and top trends here at ET, and the whirlwind of Trump administration scandals to focus on makes it harder to pick a monologue every day. But given insidious nature of the current White House, what isn’t in the headlines is often as bad or worse than any viral story. […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Devilishly Destroys Trump’s Abstinence-Only Sex Education Plan

Presidents have acted out blatant hypocrisy in the past. George W. Bush’s call for a “humble” foreign policy, for instance, was a total sham from the day Ol’ Georgie assumed office. But nobody takes the (stripper-filled) cake on do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do quite like our philanderer-in-chief Donald Trump. In today’s clip, late night comic Jimmy Kimmel calls […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Debuts His Own Trump-Romney Campaign Ad – And It’s Beautiful

Every politician reverses herself on a topic sooner or later. Smart leaders measure words carefully on each issue, knowing that foes will cast any minuscule change as a waffle. “Actually, what I said was…” is a popular quote during debates. Even if a candidate seems to have moved her position slightly, it’s not spelled out […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel’s Trump Family Valentines Are Just As Scary As You Would Imagine

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Discovers Hair-Raising Truth About Trump’s Wind

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Makes Stormy Admit Denial Of Trump Affair Is Fake News

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Fact-Checks Trump’s New Year Tweets

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Kimmel Tells Off GOP Scrooges On CHIP And Taxes

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel On Donald Trump And Sexual Harassment

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Trolls Trump Over Vietnam Visit

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Scorches Politicians Who ‘Let NRA Run This Country’

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 […]

#EndorseThis: With Al Franken, Jimmy Kimmel Again Blasts Graham-Cassidy

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, […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Strikes Back Against Cassidy, Graham, And Fox News

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 […]

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Calls Out Cassidy Over Health Bill “Scam”

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.

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel’s Radically Simple ‘Jimmy Kimmel Test’

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.

#EndorseThis: United Airlines Is Making Jimmy Kimmel Very, Very Angry

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.

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Kills On Trumpcare And Time Interview

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.”

#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel Trolls Trump At The Oscars

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.
