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.

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
