Jimmy Kimmel concedes defeat: Won’t bash Trump at ABC’s Upfront

Tonight, when Jimmy Kimmel takes to the stage in a room packed with network executives, media, producers and advertisers for ABC’s Upfront at Lincoln Center, he told Deadline Hollywood he won’t do Trump bashing.

Of course, Kimmel won’t admit defeat, but instead justifies himself by calling Trump-bashing too easy (“low-hanging fruit”) and using the excuse that “people have had an ass-ful of Donald Trump”.

In response to Deadline‘s question, “Having missed last year, this will actually be your first upfronts of the Trump Era. Having you been saving up a barrelful of barbs for the President and his ongoing big show?,” Kimmel said:

I don’t know, I don’t know how much focus there will be on that. I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves….

Sometimes there is such low-hanging fruit, you have to choose between 12 jokes on one subject, and picking the right ones is something I obsess over….

Well, I can’t imagine that it will be entirely Trump free, but I’m not planning on that to be my focus. Already I’m seeing a lot of other things to point out, to make fun of.”

“People have had an ass-ful of Donald Trump”?

No, Kimmel. Americans have had an ass-ful of you.

Which is why:

  • The ratings for the 2018 Academy Awards that Kimmel hosted crashed by double digits to a record all-time low.
  • According to TV By the Numbers in April 2018, so far this season Jimmy Kimmel Live has averaged only a measly 2.31 million total viewers. As Breitbart‘s John Nolte points out, in a country of 330 million, that is less than one percent. Statistically speaking, Kimmel’s viewership is a big fat zero.
  • After Kimmel stooped so low as to make fun of First Lady Melania’s Slovenian accent — of her pronunciation of “this or that” as “dees and dat” when she read to children during a White House Easter celebration — an online petition calling for a boycott of Jimmy Kimmel Live quickly exceeded its goal of 50,000 signatures.

  1. Demorats have seen the polls. And with upcoming mid-terms they realize Trump bashing won’t score them wins.

  2. Dem-wit Tom Steyer’s organization posted a Mother’s Day video that is so ridiculously lame that, if this is the best they have to offer, President Trump may serve four terms.

    • Maryaha,
      you were correct, that was a ridiculous video…another pathetic libtard video trying to take a low swipe at anyone who disagrees with them…they ought to be ashamed of themselves but the problems are: they have no shame, they reject Jesus, they encourage satanism, and they glorify themselves.
      If they don’t change, they will all be taking baths in the Lake of Fire for all eternity.

    • Can I use the word, “retarded” to describe this video…or is that going to ‘trigger’ anyone?

  3. Yes, they realize Trump bashing doesn’t work,so now the Dems running are pretending to be conservatives so they can fool the people and get elected…so folks, you cannot believe the democrats, and even most of the Republicans are questionable…so you must research them. We have a guy here in TN who pretends he’s so conservative, and he’s running for Governor, but he is on the board of some obama outfit.
    Research before you vote. The most important elections are the primaries!!!

  4. They do what their owners tell them to do. It’s all theater. Yes they’re stupid. Only the stupid and amoral would allow themselves to be used like this.

    I’m not a big Trump fan. At the moment (and probably forever), there are no alternatives. I’m disgusted that he’s become Bibi’s butt-boy. I want out of the Middle East, not more war. I want him to do what he said he’d do.

    I want Sessions and his ilk gone. I give him credit for what he does right. He has done more right than Obongo in his eight years. I don’t think Obongo did ANYTHING right. But, the same applies to both, they do what their owners tell them to do.

  5. If Kimmel actually depended on ratings, he would’ve been long gone. But like I’ve said, they don’t need an audience. They have unlimited funds. Every person who can’t free themselves of their indoctrination can find a group to which they can ‘belong’. They’ve got the $ to fund unlimited numbers of groups, no matter how small and seemingly insignificant. So if you need group think in order to function, you’ll have no trouble finding one.

  7. Poking people with ugly jokes is no laughing matter, this low life leud jerk is having a change of mind because his days as a “comedian” are numbered, the space is closing in and so he finds himself having to CRAWL before the powerful businessman now president of the United States and beg him and the First Lady to forgive him as he was required to do to keep the ratings up. This cockroach of a “comedian” will soon occupy a dark corner in the cellar.

  9. Any way you look at it, Kimmel is a BETA-MALE, and will always be a beta-male. Think junior high school schmuck who will never grow up.

    I got rid of my television around 1990. I have no regrets.
