Last week, Jimmy Kimmel Welcome Republican Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene, who believes Jews control the weather with space lasers and compares mask-wearing during the pandemic to the Holocaust, for reporting him to Capitol police about a joke she made. (The joke: “Where is Will Smith when you really need him?”)
The Jimmy Kimmel Live! the host revisited hullabaloo on Monday night’s show.
“Meanwhile, I had an affair with Marjorie Taylor Greene and the Temple of Dumb this weekend,” explained Kimmel. “You may have heard: the congress monster was unhappy about a comment I made about her on the show. She even called the police about me. I, she wants to be arrested, but who attacked the Capitol? It’s time to drop that. ”
The late-night comedian then released a clip of Greene talking to a reporter on Capitol Hill and talking about the January 6 uprising that left several people dead in an attempt to overthrow the presidential election, “You know what i think? I think the American people are fed up with the over-dramatization of a riot that happened on the Capitol once here. “
“Once! If it happens again, we will look into it!” Kimmel replied. “I feel like Marjorie Taylor Greene is a phenomenon that could be prevented with a high enough dose of Valtrex.”
Then the comic was cut to the scene over the weekend Greene appeared on a podcast with another frequent comedy target of Kimmel, Matt Gaetzwhere both complain about Kimmel.
Gaetz said: “Jimmy Kimmel is a fool. “And it seems his tendency is to attack women, which is particularly disturbing.”
“Says the guy is currently under federal investigation for sex trafficking, obstruction of justice and paying for sex with a 17-year-old girl,” Kimmel countered. “But let’s continue. I want to see where this goes.”
Cue Gaetz on the pod: “His reviews, especially those of our friend and colleague Lauren Boebert, are highly sexist critiques. Because of him [saying]oh, you’re ‘Klan Mom’, right? So he is attacking you as a mother and a woman. And he attacked Lauren Boebert and said, oh, she looks like ‘stepmom porn’. Let’s see how he does it? ”
“That’s not fair at all. I also joke about men. In fact, I was joking about you,” Kimmel said. “Remember when I said I felt bad for you because you didn’t have a girlfriend in high school until you were 30? Remember when I said your political background helps when you’re a registered sex offender because you’re used to knocking on strangers’ doors to introduce yourself? ”
He added, “Apology accepted, Matt.”
For the record, Gaetz To be is still under federal investigation over his relationship with a trafficker and in addition, source told CNN that the GOP congressman from Florida “allegedly showed off to other lawmakers nude photos and videos of women he said he slept with…even while on the House floor. Sources, including two who directly showed the documents, said Gaetz displayed pictures of women on his phone and talked about having sex with them. One of the videos shows a naked woman with a hula hoop, according to a source. “
