You wouldn’t know it by the mainstream media’s reaction to Jimmy Kimmel’s recent bullying behavior, but a lot of people are fed up with the late-night talk show host’s liberal elitism. A recent petition to boycott Kimmel quickly exceeded its goal of 50,000 signatures.
“We may not get him kicked off the air,” the petition reads. “But we can send a message that these attacks on our First Lady will NOT be tolerated!”
Kimmel started his elitist tirade last week when he mocked First Lady Melania Trump for her accent. Kimmel is so forcefully a women’s rights advocate that, at this year’s Oscars, he confessed, “I wish I was a woman, I really do.” Yet, he has no problem insulting the First Lady. If a conservative had ever mocked Michele Obama while she was First Lady, the mainstream media would’ve imploded with rage.
Kimmel transferred his rage to Sean Hannity, who defended Melania Trump. Hannity defended First Lady Trump in a tweet, comparing his hypocrisy to Harvey Weinstein’s by referring to him as “Weinstien Jr.” and punctuating the tweet with the hashtag #PervertKimmel.
Dear Mr Weinstein jr. you are a disgusting pervert. Stop projecting. How you treat the First Lady helping kids is disgusting. How you treat 18 year old girls is disgusting. And your show is a failure. Game on you pervert pig. I’ll be on this till you apologize. https://t.co/wfisPQoaLs— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 7, 2018
Later, Hannity continued, “When you bully women who can’t fight back it’s easier right Mr. Weinstein Jr.? I’ve only just begun.”
Kimmel’s reaction tirade was graphic, homophobic and classless
Kimmel’s reaction tirade was graphic, homophobic and classless. He feigned an apology, eventually, after 50,000-plus people asked for his resignation. And his “apology” was just as smug and enraged as everything else he does. But I can’t imagine it surprises anyone at this point to see Jimmy Kimmel so desperate and angry.
It’s been quite some time since anyone was actually laughing with him.
