Keith Olbermann Reacts to Jimmy Kimmel's White House Correspondent's Dinner Slam
Hollywood Reporter ^ | April 29, 2012 | Jane Kellogg

Posted on 04/29/2012 1:12:25 PM PDT by ConservativeStatement

The ousted Current TV host was not amused by Kimmel's jokes; compares him to Bill O'Reilly.

Jimmy Kimmel's half-hour speech at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner Saturday evening had a few targets -- Kim Kardashian, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Newt Gingrich, Lindsay Lohan and Mitt Romney, to name a few -- but it seems not everyone can take a joke.

Is Olberdork amused by anything?

He really seems like a bitter, hateful SOB who likes to dish it but can’t even for a second take it.

Keith Olbermann complaining about someone being vengeful is like Keith Olbermann complaining about someone being mean, fat, ugly, unemployed and friendless.

Do you good folks truly think any real, caring, patriotic American person in the country gives one hoot about the WHCD, Obama, Kimmel and all their associated “dirt bags”? Obama is the lowest of the low, period. Never listen to a word the America hater utters, he the worst POTUS ever and the biggest liar & con artist that ever lived!!! End of story!!!

I hope Republicans learn something from this. Narcissist’s absolutely cannot tolerate ridicule against themselves in any way shape or form.

KO is such a bore... I have no idea why the left thinks he is such a special guy...

He's basically a narcissistic self absorbed ass clown...

An unemployed ass clown at that...

I saw a little bit of it, Kimmel is a left of center “moderate” who made some quips about dems but most of the stuff that attacked beliefs was on Republicans. Saturday Night Live kinda humor. Olbermann is one huge pansy if he can't take that little remark.

Kimmel used to date Sarah Silverman, who is pure trash.

I like Kimmel’s old sidekick on “The Man Show”, Adam Carolla. He seems pretty cool. He’s no fan of Obama.

No doubt about that. However, take note the Academy Awards (Oscars) keeps dropping in viewship every year and will continue because it has lost touch with the rank & file movie goers.

The same trend is happening with the WHCD, where the elitist liberal “dirt bags” think the are really the cats meow!!! No such thing, however in real life. Would love to see how many TV viewers turned into the Obama love fest, that fizzled, just like this year’s Oscar presentations.

Obama spins, jokes, attacks, dines lavishly, drinks only the best wines, lives like Louie & Marie, while millions are living from week to week to just survive, after he has destoyed the USA economy!!! Go figure?

Anyone remember when the PRESIDENT used to be the major target of skewers at the dinner? Not since Obammie took office. Now they go after everybody else.

No.

Nor Jimmy Kimmel either.

But speaking of that--I know this is changing the subject, but--what does Desaparecido mean in English?

“used to” thank God. I don't mind Kimmel, I think he is funny and somewhat fair despite some of his left of center views. I'm with SJSAMPLE, I thought these things were supposed to have a ideologically opposed person to the Pres making jokes.

Desaparecido means "missing person" (from desaparecer "to disappear").

This guy still amazes me. He’s 50 years old, and to this day still pees in his pants under his ‘news’ desk where a charwoman or janitor has to clean up after each show. Here he is, all these years after graduating from Cornell University’s School of K-9 Obedience and Training with a degree in broadcasting, yet he himself has not successfully been potty-trained.

I have no idea—I didn’t listen to Jimmy Kimmel’s performance. There were a couple of brief clips on Fox News today but nothing, or at least nothing memorable, from Kimmel.

Which left? He just got fired by Al Gore and publicly trashed by Jimmy Kimmel.

That I do not know. I arrived late to this bash and don’t know much about Kimmel. Maybe someone else knows.

iirc, Kimmel had B. Obama on his show recently, basically promoted the president.

Kimmel had joked that he’d “like everyone to look under your seats, under each one you will find a copy of Keith Olbermann’s resume.”

“Is Keith here tonight? Limo wouldn’t pick him up?” Kimmel asked — a reference to the former Current TV host’s reported complaints about his drivers. “The thing about Keith Olbermann is, he’s so likeable. Al Gore launched Current TV in 2005 and it took off like a North Korean rocket. To be honest I didn’t even know Current TV was still on the air, but then I don’t get channel 1,000,000.”

Kimmel:

“Democrats would like you to stick to your guns. And if you don’t have any guns, you can ask Eric Holder to get some for you.”
