Jimmy Kimmel has turned into a sad clown who isn't funny anymore

When asked why Saturday Night Live tends to make fun of Republicans more than Democrats, Lorne Michaels, the show’s creator, replied, “Democrats tend to take it personally; Republicans think it’s funny.”

But lately, it’s different, and comedians’ hatred for conservatives just hasn’t been funny, so we’ve learned to turn the TV off. This year’s Oscars got the lowest ratings in the show’s history: People knew Jimmy Kimmel was hosting and that he’d turn the whole thing into a festival of elitist progressivism.

After all, he’s made a career out of virtue-signaling and white-knighting --- a self-avowed feminist. His respect for women is so strong that, at this year’s Oscar’s he said, with a sigh, “I wish I was a woman.”

Well, apparently his respect for women doesn’t apply to all women.

By the progressive metric, he mocked a woman --- an immigrant woman --- for the way she speaks. A micro-aggression, if you ask me. Not very PC. It’s another reminder that Kimmel is angry, bitter, cynical and tired. The sad clown is full of anger.

At this point, it’s a truism. He runs his mouth constantly because it distracts from his insecurities and allows him to release a bit of his venom. But we keep the sad clown around because occasionally he makes us laugh.

Lately, Jimmy Kimmel can’t even do that. He’s just a sad clown that isn’t funny. Leftists claim that conservatives aren’t funny. Conservatives put up with the whining and are able to laugh at something that’s funny whether they disagree with it or not. Leftists can be offended if their ideas are challenged but conservatives can’t.

Worse, if a conservative expresses offense, leftists consider that very objection offensive. At the end of the day, Kimmel’s sanctimonious tantrums don’t matter. We can change the channel. What DOES matter is the divisiveness Kimmel is enflaming with his dubious activism.

Talk-show hosts are no longer comedians or even political comedians. They’ve become activists who occasionally tell jokes, or who veil advocacy with humor. They assume a dubious sense of authority. And, unfortunately, most of them happen to be raging leftists. Luckily, most engineers, dentist, farmers and surgeons tend to be conservative, or else we’d all starve, be toothless and every bridge and overpass would have its own gender.

Humor has immeasurable power.

In all seriousness, humor has immeasurable power. The power to unite, to combat tribalism. As Mark Twain wrote, “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.” A person’s ability to laugh often reveals a lot about them. Laughter is one of the finest joys of life.

And, if you can share a laugh with someone, it’s hard to ignore their humanity. Lately, people don’t laugh --- not like we used to. And it’s something we need now more than ever.

Maybe it’s time for us --- all of us --- to face an insult with a grin and find a way to make the angry person smile.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752

3. Nebraska

Population: 1,972,292

4. West Virginia

Population: 1,764,786

5. Hawaii

Population: 1,433,238

6. New Hampshire

Population: 1,402,957

7. Maine

Population: 1,393,442

8. Montana

Population: 1,139,507

9. Rhode Island

Population: 1,090,483

10. Delaware

Population: 1,031,985

11. South Dakota

Population: 923,484

12. North Dakota

Population: 780,588

13. Alaska

Population: 732,984

POLL: Should the Government control the future of AI?

Earlier this week, tech titans, lawmakers, and union leaders met on Capitol Hill to discuss the future of AI regulation. The three-hour meeting boasted an impressive roster of tech leaders including, Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, and others, along with more than 60 US Senators.

The meeting was closed to the public, so what was exactly discussed is unknown. However, what we do know is that a majority of the CEOs support AI regulation, the most vocal of which is Elon Musk. During the meeting, Musk called AI "a double-edged sword" and strongly pushed for regulation in the interest of public safety.

Many other related issues were discussed, including the disruption AI has caused to the job market. As Glenn has discussed on his program, the potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real, and many have already felt the effects. From taxi drivers to Hollywood actors and writers, AI's presence can be felt everywhere and lawmakers are unsure how to respond.

The potential for AI to alter or destroy jobs is very real.

Ultimately, the meeting's conclusion was less than decisive, with several Senators making comments to the tune of "we need more time before we act." The White House is expected to release an executive order regarding AI regulation by the end of the year. But now it's YOUR turn to tell us what YOU think needs to be done!

Should A.I. be regulated?

Can the government be trusted with the power to regulate A.I.? 

Can Silicon Valley be trusted to regulate AI? 

Should AI development be slowed for safety, despite its potential advantages?

If a job can be done cheaper and better by AI, should it be taken away from a human?

Do you feel that your job is threatened by AI?
