Jimmy Kimmel says good riddance to losing 30% of Republican viewers

Definition of “good riddance” or “riddance”: Relief or deliverance from being rid of something undesirable.

Attention, Republicans!

Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t care if you watch his ABC late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”. In fact, he’s glad to be rid of you.

So you’d be a fool to watch his show.

Naomi Lim reports for Washington Examiner, Oct. 15, 2017, that Kimmel told CBS’ Sunday Morning that because of his on-air rants about healthcare and gun control, his show is losing Republican viewers. He said:

“Three years ago, I was equally liked by Republicans and Democrats. And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30 percent, or whatever. And you know, as a talk show host, that’s not ideal but I would do it again in a heartbeat.

When conservative critics like Ben Shapiro slam him for parading as a “moral arbiter,” Kimmel told CBS:

“I’m not. I mean, I agree with him. I’m nobody’s moral arbiter. You don’t have to watch the show. You don’t have to listen to what I say.”

Then Kimmel defiantly added that while he preferred that everyone with a television watch his show:

“But if they’re so turned off by my opinion on healthcare and gun violence then, I don’t know, I probably wouldn’t want to have a conversation with them anyway. Not good riddance, but riddance.

Kimmel earned both high praise and sharp rebukes for his foray into the healthcare debate in September, an issue that he insists is important to him because his six-month-old son Billy was born with a rare congenital heart defect. Kimmel’s portrayal of his son as a victim of President Trump’s efforts to reform/repeal Obamacare is puzzling, given the fact that with an annual salary of $10 million and an estimated net worth of $35 million, Kimmel easily can afford his son’s healthcare costs under whatever health care system.

Kimmel also garnered similarly polarized reactions when he choked up during a monologue imploring Congress to act on gun control in the wake of the October 1 Las Vegas shooting massacre.

  2. After Leno was pushed out, we stopped all late night viewing. They all went to crap anyway.
    His behavior is no surprise considering how many years he spent with that filthy mouth demented Sarah Silverman.

  4. Lol,,Kimmel, ,isn’t he a comedian who gets paid to be a comedian. He’s not a spokesman to be spouting uneducated advise based on not even knowing anything about guns, their modes of operation and why the military uses full auto vs semi,,,,he has no clue,,,,if he did, he surely wouldn’t be talking the way he is.
    This fool doesn’t even know why our bill of rights, constitution or declaration of independence was formed, sure he may be able to spout what they are, but he doesn’t know what they mean.
    Knowing something, and knowing why something is are two very different concepts.
    As usual the left having their usual knee-jerk un-educated view of ”government knows what’s best for us ” not the people” ,and ” inadamate objects such as guns are responsible for criminal activity ” mindset.
    Hey Kimmel do us all a favor, and post that disgusting YouTube of yourself with you asking girls to touch your privates before you take any moral highground. Your no-one to look up to, your a half-assed comedian at best, you remind me of some high school kid everyone wanted to beat up.
    Lastly, good riddance to you already, and go back to that man show you used to be on, remember that trampoline you guys used to make bikini clad women bounce around on..?
    Go bounce around on that trampolene until your brain finally seats itself correctly or you enter outer space hopefully entering a black hole.

  8. Haven’t watched him in years. Worst delivery ever. Not funny. But I liked his Aunt Chippy… Feisty! Uncle Frank died since I last watched the show…
    BTW the whole Matt Damon thing is a complete farce. They’re BFFs.

    Never understood why they gave him the show, as I’d only seen him previously on “Win Ben Stein’s Money”, where he was an oafish instigator.

    Likewise, why’d they give Carson, Seth, Fallon, and the fat Brit their own shows? And OMG, why give Colbert Letterman’s Legacy??? People have lost their minds. Then again, I stopped watching Letterman after he went nutty-left… he now looks like a crazy old commie. True colors.

    I only wish they would bring back somebody the quality of Johnny Carson to entertain us again, with true comedic genius and an ability to keep personal feelings and politics out of the show, or at least not preach them at us.

    But they think adversarial attacks sell tickets and advertising, and the young & Godless rule that roost.

  9. The first time I saw Kimmel was when Ben Stein brought him on as his side kick on Ben Steins’ Money. That had to be 20 years ago. I was so turned off and aghast at Kimmels crude gutter humor on that show I stopped watching. This from a conservative who was a speech writer for Nixon, I couldn’t figure out why in hell Stein chose him, and allowed him to stay other than underneath it all Jews love and allegiances is to each other, and all the political posturing is nothing but that- posturing.
