Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Kellyanne Conway's New Book

Returning to his late-night show after another COVID hiatus, Jimmy Kimmel mocked the release of Kellyanne Conway's new book. Pointing out that she writes almost as well as she tells the truth, Kimmel played a clip of Conway reading from Here’s The Deal: A Memoir --- and concluding with an “amen” for her own words.

“Yeah, ‘amen,‘” he chortled. “I don’t think you’re allowed to end your own book with ‘amen.’”

But just when you thought that might be the most awkward part of wacky Conway's book, Kimmel dug a little bit further. A Trump spokesperson issued a statement calling a key anecdote in the book “totally false.” Wait, did Conway just encounter "alternative facts"?

“In other words, Kellyanne got Kellyanne’ed today!” Kimmel said. “Isn’t that something?”

MAGA Children's Books

The GOP descent into full-blown conspiracy and fascist hell has not gone unnoticed as of late. With the right-wing dominated Supreme Court poised to finally overturn Roe V Wade and 2022 races focusing on backing Republicans who support Trump's 2020 election lies, democracy and decency are all but dead and Democrats are going to have to turn out big in the midterms to prevent a GOP takeover over the House or Senate.

But while the focus of progressive ire has been over the GOP's assault on reproductive rights, Republicans have also been waging a war on facts and education quite well. After all, they need their voters nice and ignorant to remain in power. Book banning and, sickeningly, book burning is a thing for the GOP in the year 2022. The state of Tennessee, for example, is banning books. In fact, a psychotic trump zealot pastor led an actual book-burning event.

Since the far-right clowns in today's deranged GOP want their voters to remain ignorant, hateful, and uneducated we decided to compile a list of super-duper conservative-approved children's books. Although this is purely satirical, it is actually something that could very well happen in today's intellectually and morally bankrupt Republican Party.
