Leftists have attempted to kill comedy over the past six years.
Anyone who doesn’t toe the “woke” line struggles to approval from the gatekeepers.
Now a Trump-deranged comedian got one gig that will leave you speechless.
Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel has become the “woke” pope of television.
After the election of Donald Trump, Kimmel’s show turned into a DNC variety hour.
He did everything from cry on air in support of Medicare for All and gun control, to bashing retail stock traders who caused a massive headache for Wall Street billionaires.
Now Kimmel has been invited back to host the Academy Awards.
From The Daily Wire:
“The Oscars announced Monday that comedian and late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel would host the 95th Academy Awards, returning to emcee the ceremony for the third time. In a press release obtained by The Daily Wire from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, showrunners Glenn Weiss and Ricky Kirshner announced that the host of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” will helm the annual awards show in March…Kimmel previously hosted the Oscars in 2017 and once again the following year. In 2018, the annual awards show suffered, at the time, record low ratings, Deadline magazine noted. The next three years, the show went hostless, coming in with the lowest ratings ever amid the pandemic, the outlet reported.”
Kimmel was the host during the most embarrassing moment in Oscar history when Warren Beatty accidentally announced La La Land as the winner of Best Picture over the actual winner Moonlight.
Kimmel also got ripped for playing dead onstage at the Emmys during the acceptance speech of Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson.
Academy CEO Bill Kramer and Academy President Janet Yang wrote in a statement, “Jimmy is the perfect host to help us recognize the incredible artists and films of our 95th Oscars…His love of movies, live TV expertise, and ability to connect with our global audiences will create an unforgettable experience for our millions of viewers worldwide.”
In response to the news, Kimmel joked that hosting the Oscars was “either a great honor or a trap…Either way, I am grateful to the Academy for asking me so quickly after everyone good said no.”
The show first chose to go without a host after comedian Kevin Hart was “canceled” from the gig after activist leftists dug up old social media posts that were deemed homophobic.
No other comedians wanted to host the show after Hart got pummeled, so the show went host-less.
The trend continued due to COVID.
Kimmel’s transformation from edgy comic to “woke” gatekeeper is quite stunning.
Kimmel repeatedly dressed in blackface in the past, and was never really held accountable when others were fired from jobs for doing the same thing.
Jimmy Fallon did the same, but he was never punished, even though NBC fired Megyn Kelly for simply discussing “blackface” as a Halloween costume, not even engaging it like Fallon or Kimmel.
Kimmel has been allowed into the club, and he is reaping the monetary rewards.
