Jimmy Kimmel Fires Back at Fox News for Attacking His Biden Interview
President Joe Biden is yet to make his scheduled appearance this week on Jimmy Kimmel Live!but that didn’t stop Fox News from starting its outrage cycle into gear.
All day Monday, various Fox pundits complained that by appearing on a late-night comedy show, Biden was not taking his presidency seriously. Fox and friends presenter Brian Kilmeade guess Kimmel will be too soft on the president, former Trump spokesman Kayleigh McEnany declare it was a “bad choice,” and Fox Business head of business Dagen McDowell called the interview symbolic of “the crazy land we all live in.”
“Oh, I see, what I did was crazy,” Kimmel countered. “You guys tell us we should support PE teachers to protect kids, that makes sense.”
He added: “Tucker Carlson allows Vladimir Putin to reach out to people every night. “President on a late night talk show? Madness. Understood.”
While Trump is a no-grata figure on late-night television as president after some appeared unfortunately During his campaign, Barack Obama became a regular on the show during his time in office. This Wednesday, however, will mark the first late-night venue in Biden’s studio following pandemic-era Zoom interviews with Jimmy Fallon and Seth Meyers.
