The Blazing Hypocrisy of Jimmy Kimmel’s Trump Attacks

Far-left host claims he risked his job to mock Trump. Here's what's left unsaid

Jimmy Kimmel knows his liberal jokes alienate a large swath of the viewing public.

And he doesn’t care.

“Not good riddance but riddance,” the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host famously said about losing Republican fans.

Jimmy Kimmel on losing GOP viewers: ‘Not good riddance, but riddance’

Now, he claims his employer, ABC, feels the same way.

Kimmel chatted with “Everybody Loves Raymond” co-creator Phil Rosenthal on the podcaster’s “Naked Lunch” podcast earlier this week. The two explored political humor, specifically gags targeting President Donald Trump.

That gave Kimmel the chance to puff out his chest and suggest he’d risk losing his late-night show for the right to taunt Trump.

“Does ABC ever say to you, ‘Hey, could you not just attack this side and lay off a little bit? Cause we are gonna lose those people?’” Rosenthal asked.

Yes, Kimmel alleged. He says ABC suits suggested he tone down the anti-Trump material at one point, and Kimmel not only refused but said the suits could fire him if they forced his hand.

Speaking Truth to PowerTM was more important, even if it meant losing at least half his fans.

“They knew I was serious. I mean, you know… I couldn’t live with myself. I see this, you know? …I don’t think of it in that grandiose a way. But I do think, like, you know, I love this country too. I mean, you know, that flag doesn’t belong to them. This is ours. And when I see somebody coming in and ruining it, I’m gonna say something about it. That’s it. That’s as simple as that.”

Let’s collectively stop laughing and take Kimmel at his word. He fears Trump as a threat to the nation, and thinks his nonstop Trump jokes could save the country from a second Trump presidency.


President Joe Biden is currently in the Oval Office and, by most sober accounts, is “ruining the country” in real time. Inflation is soaring, as are gas prices from 2020. Crime is up, the southern border is a sieve and his administration is teaming with Big Tech giants to stifle free speech.

That’s just a partial list.

Sounds awful, right? It’s why we may see a red wave election in just a few days. The people have noticed, and they’re craving a fresh direction.


So clearly Kimmel must be teeing off on President Biden for all the above reasons, right?


Except Kimmel isn’t. He’s like his fellow liberal late night hosts, avoiding Biden at all costs to attack Trump, Elon Musk and minor GOP players like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Kimmel isn’t a comedic patriot trying to save the country. He’s a partisan Democrat who won’t tell jokes about his party.



  1. Hypocrisy at its finest. The folks who cannot stop attacking Trump, to this day, keep silent about the state of our country under Biden and his cronies. The reason ratings are down on Kimmel’s appearances and show is not only because of his Trump jokes, it’s because people are beginning to tire of hypocrits and the unwillingness of both sides to stop attacking each other long enough to say our country from idiocy.

  2. ruining the country? right because trump touts free speech, meaning we can say A N Y T H I N G!!! just because the left this dirtbag doesn’t like it doesn’t mean he has to listen to it, secure borders and stop illegals from freely crossing our borders and allowing massive amounts of drugs unfettered into our country? wanting Americans to pay as low of tax rate as possible and be allowed to keep more money in our pockets? that ruining? energy independent so we don’t have to fight foreign wars to keep the oil flowing, have a robust military, stop foreign countries from stealing our technology? that ruining? being able to keep and bear arms? to protect myself and my family? that ruining? and just get the government off our backs and out of our wallets, democrats are really sick minded people that think everyone needs to agree with them! if you don’t your a racist a word that’s over used and overrated, it doesn’t take a genius to look around and see the shear damage in every major city democrat policies have destroyed, look at peoples retirement savings have been destroyed while this wimp whines and crys while living in on a high walled high security home. he’s just a left wing propaganda mouth piece and nothing else, never found him funny, and the guy is a total racist, but some how gets a pass, as with all democrats they’re all racists, seen videos of Biden making the most racist comments while he was senator? democrats Hate you, they hate America, they hate Americans, and claim that they love this country which is total fraud, they think they should never have to subjected to be voted in that’s so beneath them, just remember democrats hate anyone who don’t follow they’re ideology and votes for them.

  3. Record corporate profits?? Lol. Along with record corporate expenses. You see, inflation works that way.

    Prices go up. Food, fuel, rent, costs of raw materials, and the cost of borrowing money all rise. This happens for corporations as well. It looks like they are making money to you because you only look at one line on the financial statements.. and don’t look at the whole.
    If the corporate money has never been better… Why is the stock market taking Big flush? Stock prices are based on the value of future cash flows the corp will produce.

    Need flash: Biden IS wrecking the economy.

  4. Biden must be ruining the world, then, since gas prices are high around the globe, as is “inflation.” How about discuss corporate greed and record profits rather than inflation?

    1. Biden shut down the pipeline and stopped new drilling licenses. He’s emptying out the reserve. He’s made us dependent on foreign oil and is now we’re experiencing crushing inflation. If we could go back to our own oil and increase our supply the cost would go back down. I know Marxists think supply and demand is not a thing, but it is.

  5. So do what I do and boycott Kibble and his shows sponsors. His most success was “Girls jumping on trampolines” on “The Man Show” then chugging a beer. A real classy show detrimental towards women but that’s all ok now.

  6. I doubt that the network feels the same. I’m guessing he has a very lucrative contract, and they simply don’t want to address the issue…yet. We’re seeing some changes already, Sam Bee, Trevor Noah, and a couple of others. Kimmel’s day is coming.

    1. Kimmel’s a hypocrite shill for his paycheck. Comedians used to be funny. Now they’re painful propagandists. Shame shame for Pelosi’s jokes but baby sacrifice is decency? Sick.
