Conservative commentator Candace Owens had a lot to say about late night “comedy” shows, and did not pull any punches.
Owens appeared on Fox News’ Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro where she was asked about the state of late night television.
Judge Pirro focused, in particular, on Jimmy Kimmel, playing a clip of the former Man Show host saying that he would rather have a chimpanzee as president than Donald Trump. Kimmel went on to say that a benefit of having a chimp as the president is that he could eat the bugs out of Rudy Giuliani’s hair.
Setting aside, for the moment, that the eating the bugs out of Rudy Giuliani’s hair does not make sense and that it sounds like the lazy writing that we might expect from a third-grader, it’s probably more important to point out that it was not funny. It was not clever, it was not humorous, and it was not interesting.
Jimmy Kimmel’s shtick, since the election of Donald Trump, has been little more than a string of hateful, angry, mean-spirited attacks with Leftist propaganda mixed in for good measure.
Candace Owens noticed the fact that the host of Jimmy Kimmel Live has dropped the comedy from his show as well,
“Look, I would rather we had a comedian for a late-night talk show rather than Jimmy Kimmel, who gets up there every single night, cries, brings up his child, uses his child as a prop to get other people to cry.”
It might be all right if it was just Kimmel who has become a shill for the Left, but the fact of the matter is that he is just a single member of larger group of entertainers who have become activists and community organizers since Hillary Clinton’s embarrassing defeat in 2016.
The NFL learned the hard way that alienating half of their fan base resulted in ratings and fan turnout plummeting. The NFL chose to side with the millionaire athletes, like Colin Kaepernick, who were claiming to be oppressed while promoting Communist Cuba. The NFL went over a year allowing community organizers to hijack the game for political activism rather than standing with the millions of loyal fans who watch the games for entertainment purposes and as a temporary escape from real life.
The big question is the same question that the NFL had to ask itself, how long these comedians can keep up with this hatred for Donald Trump and, by extension, the half of the country that supported his election.
