They HATE You: Kimmel Rages That He 'Overestimated the American People’


Late night “comedy” is not a place for jokes, it’s a spot for liberal lectures and hate. Jimmy Kimmel on Wednesday reacted angrily to the closely disputed, undecided presidential election. Perhaps triggered by the Republicans likely holding the Senate and increasing their numbers in the House, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host ranted that he “overestimated the American people.” Kimmel wasn’t alone in his bitterness as Jimmy Fallon mocked half the country that voted for Trump and Stephen Colbert made a Mussolini comparison. 

Kimmel was so annoyed that he abandoned any pretense of making jokes. He seethed, “I’m also shocked that it was this close. I mean, we reunited the cast of every movie and TV show ever made to win this election. It is unimaginable to me that close to half of American voters saw what this man has done to this country over the last four years” [and wanted more]. 

Directly insulting half the country, the host raged, “What more did Trump have to do to show us that he’s insane and not fit to lead this country? I feel like I overestimated the American people.”

 

 

Here’s his full rant:

I have to say, I’m very happy and relieved that it looks like we’re finally sending this monster back to Mar-a-Lago. But I’m also shocked that it was this close. I mean, we reunited the cast of every movie and TV show ever made to win this election. It is unimaginable to me that close to half of American voters saw what this man has done to this country over the last four years. How he kowtowed to Vladimir Putin, he cozied up to Kim Jong-un. He alienated us from our allies, he put children in cages. He villainized the free press. He hid his tax returns. He tear gassed peaceful protesters. He pardoned all his criminal buddies. He extorted Ukraine. He misled us about COVID. He dismantled the pandemic response team. He dismantled health care, he called neo-Nazis very fine people. He tired a never-ending parade of imbeciles, he lied, he lied, he lied, then he lied some more, he is a liar and a cheat who wants them to stop counting thousands of legitimate votes. And almost half of us are apparently okay with that. Half of us want to keep it going for four more years. Which, listen, I don’t care what you think of Joe Biden. If Joe Biden stopped by my house every morning to key my car and pee in my pool, still be no question which one of them I’d vote for. None. What more did Trump have to do to show us that he’s insane and not fit to lead this country? I feel like I overestimated the American people and I underestimated the Village People.

On NBC, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon echoed the same nasty sentiment, insulting millions of Americans: “The race is still too close to call. Apparently a lot of voters looked at 90,000 COVID cases a day and thought, ‘Sure, I can do four more years of this.’ Experts still can’t believe the race is this tight. Apparently, people are voting based on which candidate they want to drink bleach with.”

 

 

On CBS’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert compared Trump to a dictator: “[Trump] put his Mussolini where his mouth is, and his campaign said it would sue to stop Michigan and Pennsylvania’s ballot counts.”

JIMMY FALLON: Yep. The race is still too close to call. Apparently a lot of voters looked at 90,000 covid cases a day and thought, ‘Sure, I can do four more years of this.” Experts still can’t believe the race is this tight. Apparently, people are voting based on which candidate they want to drink bleach with.

STEPHEN COLBERT: You might think all that was just the act of a tweaked-out maniac coming off his Dexy, until this afternoon, when he put his Mussolini where his mouth is, and his campaign said it would sue to stop Michigan and Pennsylvania’s ballot counts.
