Late-night comedy has become an embarrassment.
“Woke” hosts go on rants with talking points straight from the DNC.
And one comic was almost reduced to tears when he went on a rant against Elon Musk.
Jimmy Kimmel has positioned himself as the “woke” pope of late-night comedy over the past few years.
He routinely rails against Donald Trump and the Republicans, but he rose in the eyes of leftists when he broke down and cried over issues like healthcare and gun control.
Kimmel and his late-night colleagues don’t even pretend to be comedians first; they’re just advocates for the Democratic Party.
Kimmel recently teed off on new Twitter owner Elon Musk, who has become an archvillain of the left.
Musk drew the ire of the Democrats when he tweeted, “My pronouns are Prosecute/Fauci.”
Musk has shown his disdain for the “woke mind virus” as well as Dr. Anthony Fauci, who lied repeatedly as the de facto leader of the COVID regime.
Kimmel barked, “On top of being small-minded, lowest common denominator garbage, and spreading false and dangerous conspiracy theories against a doctor who works for our good, it’s also just a terrible joke…It’s like a joke generated by AI. It doesn’t make any sense. The structure’s wrong, it didn’t rhyme with anything relevant. There’s too many syllables. It’s exactly the kind of joke you’d expect from a guy who named his son after the bottom row of the eye chart.”
The great irony of Kimmel’s retort is that his joke is terrible.
It’s not even a joke; it’s just an establishment Democrat rant.
Kimmel continued, “I have a problem with any richest man in the world who comes to this country to casually slander a doctor who’s devoted his entire life to protecting our children from HIV and COVID and Zika and Swine Flu and Ebola while you’re off playing grab-ass with Trump and firing rockets into space to prove your penis works.”
This is how far late-night comedy has fallen.
Kimmel and his cohort don’t even try to be funny.
They just spout off applause lines to their left-wing audience.
Late-night hosts of yesteryear did not openly express their politics, choosing instead to poke fun at both sides.
Lost in Kimmel’s rant was the fact that criticism of Dr. Fauci is verboten.
If anyone calls him anything other than a noble civil servant, he or she is attacked.
That goes for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. who wrote the book The Real Anthony Fauci, which skewers Fauci’s past work as well as his handling of COVID.
Fauci also lied under oath before Congress about funding gain of function research in the Wuhan lab.
He colluded with former NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins to slander esteemed epidemiologists who disagreed with him on COVID policy.
Fauci is fair game, but establishment Democrats like Kimmel absolutely go ballistic when Fauci is questioned.
