Candace Owens comes out swinging at Jimmy Kimmel: ‘He single-handedly ruined late-night TV’

So-called late-night “comedy” seems like anything but comedy these days thanks to the constant attacks lodged at President Donald Trump, his supporters and the Republican Party as a whole by America’s notoriously anti-Trump late-night “comics.”

It’s as if “comics” these days would rather play the role of left-wing political commentator than that of an actual comic. And according to conservative firebrand Candace Owens, there’s one person in particular who’s to blame for this: Loudmouth liberal and late night “comic” Jimmy Kimmel.

Listen below as she explains her perspective on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine”:

“He single-handedly, he single-handedly ruined late-night TV,” she said to host Jeanine Pirro. “I really do believe Jimmy Kimmel does this. He somehow thinks he’s like a political spokesperson. He tries to be funny. It’s never funny. I think that has to be a fake audience. I don’t get it whatsoever.”

Owens issued the bold declaration while responding to a recent clip of Kimmel in which the left-wing “comedian” had said he wished a chimpanzee was president instead of Trump.

“I gotta say, I would rather we had a chimpanzee as president of the United States. At least with a chimp there would be somebody to eat the bugs out of Rudy Giuliani’s hair,” Kimmel said Tuesday.

Owens’ response was brutal: “I would rather we had a comedian for a late night talk show rather than Jimmy Kimmel who gets up there every single night, cries, brings up his child, uses his child as a prop to get other people to cry. So look, we don’t always get what we want, Jimmy.”

True. Last year Kimmel repeatedly used his now-1-year-old son, Billy, to deliver crocodile-tear-filled slams against the president and his proposals, including his failed plan to repeal Obamacare and his successful plan to cut taxes.

Following Kimmel’s lead, other left-wing “comics” have taken aim at Trump’s policies as well, albeit without any years:

According to the left-wing “comic,” repealing Obamacare would’ve taken healthcare away from other kids like Billy, while cutting taxes would’ve put more money in the hands of the rich at the expense of children. While his arguments may have seemed reasonable to the naive, they were superficial and based wholly on emotions versus facts, as noted by conservative commentator Michelle Malkin.

“In the land of make-believe, it would be wonderful if everyone had free access to the same high-quality care Kimmel and his family did at Cedars-Sinai and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles,” she wrote last May, addressing the “comic’s” concerns about Obamacare.

“In the real world, Obamacare plans have severely curtailed the number of doctors and hospitals that customers can use. Command-and-control regulations on guaranteed issue, community rating and pre-existing conditions favored by Kimmel and company are driving up costs for everyone. Limited access to specialists and long waits have become the increasing norm — just like that other model of government-run health care, the Veterans Affairs system, where the despicable practice of ‘death by queuing’ spiked under Obama.”

These are the actual facts, and it’d be nice if wannabe political commentators like Kimmy would familiarize themselves with such details. Or they could just stop trying to be political commentators and return to being what they were before Trump became president: a comedian!
