Over the last several years, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has moved away from his typical comedic routines to political activism. Instead of Kimmel’s shows being a program for light-hearted laughs and jokes, it has become a launch pad for numerous attacks on Republicans, the second amendment, and of course, President Trump. However, Kimmel has not stopped there with his vicious attacks and has now set his sights on bullying Melania Trump in a series of bizarre insults towards the First Lady. Though it appears that Kimmel went too far with his latest barrage of insults flung at Melania and immediately received terrible news when walking backstage after his most recent broadcast that should stop his nasty attacks for good.
There was a time in our country where comedy on network television used to be funny, but now it is often used just to attack conservatives, President Trump, and the even the first family. One of the worst offenders of these constant attacks on President Trump and his America first agenda, is the liberal mouthpiece, Jimmy Kimmel who has used his show as a platform to push socialist talking points. For example, when Kimmel’s son was sick he used his show to promote Obamacare, and during the tragic Las Vegas s******g, he used that air time to blast the NRA.
So, it was no surprise that this hateful “comedian” would turn his attention eventually to the recent illegal immigration debate. Over the last several months, Kimmel has stood on his show set, tearfully pleading that DACA recipients be able to stay in America since they are the future of our country. Though it appears that Kimmel only cares about illegal immigrants that may potentially vote for the Democratic party since the sub-par comedian has decided to mock Melania Trump who is a legal immigrant.
In a recent show, Kimmel launched a vile attack on Melania Trump over the 140th annual Easter Egg Roll event. Kimmel ridiculed Melania during his segment saying that she was uninvolved in the set-up of the event. “Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up. There’s no — she didn’t dye eggs, she didn’t fill baskets.”
Wait, how does Kimmel know what Melania did or did not do? And, more importantly, did he question Michelle Obama and her involvement in the event during Obama’s presidency? Not at all, which is what caused outrage and now a petition to push him off for his hypocritical and disgusting attacks.
Here is more from Fox News:
“ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel’s recent jokes about first lady Melania Trump are apparently offending a lot of viewers.
An online petition launched recently, calling for a boycott of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and has exceeded its goal of 50,000 signatures. Organizers say the petition will eventually be sent to “the front door of Disney/ABC Studios” Burbank, Calif.
“We may not get him kicked off the air,” the petition says. “But we can send a message that these attacks on our First Lady will NOT be tolerated!”
Specifically, offended viewers appear to take issue with Kimmel’s jokes about the first lady’s Slovenian accent. On Monday, he mocked Melania Trump’s reading to children during a White House Easter celebration.
“We may not get him kicked off the air. But we can send a message that these attacks on our First Lady will NOT be tolerated!”

“Dees and dat,” Kimmel joked, of her pronunciation of “this or that.”
Kimmel’s targeting of the first lady seems to contradict the network’s recent assertions that it has captured the hearts of middle America since launching the rebooted “Roseanne” sitcom.
Where does @JimmyKimmel get off making fun of @FLOTUS Melania Trump’s accent? Is he going to make fun of someone from Boston? TX? Or is it just the accents of immigrants he mocks? The woman speaks 5 languages for Pete’s sake! He’s out of line. https://t.co/9hUKWq9BzS

In fact, beleaguered ABC President Ben Sherwood trumpeted his programming acumen to the New York Times the day after “Roseanne” scored massive ratings, claiming that ABC executives had a meeting the morning after the election about how they could better reach Middle America.
But Sherwood — who insiders say is fighting for his job as ABC remains mired in fourth place — has been a particular champion of Kimmel’s over the years. When he was president of ABC News, he reportedly supported the network moving Kimmel’s low-rated late-night show into the more favorable time slot long occupied by ABC News’ “Nightline.” Later, as ABC president, Sherwood would personally lobby the Academy for Kimmel to host the Oscars.
“Jimmy elevated the Emmys,” Sherwood said at the time.
It’s not clear now how Kimmel’s attacks of the First Lady or his subsequent, extremely s******y vulgar jokes regarding President Trump, are elevating anything.”
Ah the famous double standard…….
If any Republican ever mocked Michele Obama for her appearance or other immutable trait the left would be going bonkers. But somehow it’s ok for Kimmel to engage in this classless mockery of the First Lady. #JimmyKimmel https://t.co/FBw9Swm8bu

Of course, the left does not see an issue with Kimmel mocking Melania which is why we need to push back and remind them that it does matter. Hopefully, with enough signatures, it will send a clear message to Kimmel that his “sense of humor” is not appreciated and he needs to stop his vile attacks once and for all.
