In 2017, liberals look for late night comedians to set the tone when it comes to politics. If John Oliver says it then it must be true. Whatever Jimmy Kimmel thinks we should do with Obamacare is what we should do. Samantha Bee loves Planned Parenthood so it must be great! It’s really scary how much control these Hollywood know-nothings wield in the Democrat Party.
Over the past few months, Jimmy Kimmel has established himself as the comedian that liberals look up to most.
When it came to Obamacare, the left immediately took Jimmy Kimmel’s side after he shared a heartbreaking story about his son. And yet, Jimmy’s conclusion that we have to keep Obamacare because of it ended up being riddled with inaccuracies.
Jimmy Kimmel has contempt for conservatives.
There’s no doubt about it.
Don’t take it from me, though. He admitted it today. Check out what he said about Shapiro’s criticism of him.
Translation: If you don’t agree with me you can go pound sand.
That’s not too surprising to hear from a liberal but it sure goes to show you that Kimmel has no interest in a reasonable debate. He’s right. Republicans are wrong.
Compare that to what Jimmy Fallon said the other day.
From Fox News:
NBC’s Jimmy Fallon is defending his decision to keep his show from becoming an anti-Trump crusade like other late night hosts have, saying many of the president’s words and actions are just “too serious” for joke fodder.
“With Trump, it’s just like every day’s a new thing. He gives a lot of material. A lot of stuff is hard to even make a joke about,” Fallon said in a preview of an NBC “Today” show interview to air Sunday. “It’s just too serious.”
Fallon argues on the “Today” segment that he’s made jokes about Obama and Trump. And he said he will always make jokes about a president” but “it’s just not what I do.”
“I think it would be weird for me to start doing it now. I don’t really even care that much about politics.”
Gee. Wouldn’t it be nice if more comedians knew that they shouldn’t chime in on stuff they don’t know much about?
It’s fine to not follow politics. Kimmel, Oliver, and others clearly don’t have a very adult grasp on what’s going on in the world. That’s fine. Stay in your lane. Tell jokes about things you know. Nothing wrong with that.
Luckily, conservatives have a lot of power here just like they do with NFL owners.
That makes a world of difference.
