Kimmel vs Cruz - Blobfish Basketball Classic
Jimmy Kimmel Live Youtube ^ | Jun 18, 2018 | Jimmy Kimmel Live

Posted on 06/24/2018 10:16:52 AM PDT by conservative98

"Jimmy went to Houston to play a game of one-on-one basketball against Texas Senator Ted Cruz in what we called the “Blobfish Basketball Classic.” The reason this happened is because after Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals, Jimmy showed a picture of Senator Cruz at the Houston Rockets game and he likened him to a blobfish. Cruz did not like that so he challenged Jimmy to a game of one-on-one for charity. It’s been a dream of Jimmy’s ever since he was a little boy to one day play basketball against the most disliked member of the U.S. Senate and that dream finally came true. So, here it is..."

Kimmel is such a nasty guy. It also was pathetic how production tried to make Kimmel the hero and Cruz the villain.

To be likened to a Blobfish, is not a complement, but it is very catchy and very amusing just the same.
Take a google look at Blobfish, and you’ll see what I mean.
The poor thing is an Ugly Duckling, the ‘Platypus of the Ocean Floor’.

Typical Hollywood...Cruz actually wins but the media reacts like Kimmel did.

Kimmel gets the MVP. How corny!

Kimmel brought up how Trump treated Cruz in the election. But Kimmels was also very insulting to Cruz and his children.

Cruz just basically stood there and took it. Kimmel comes off looking very bad.

MrRyanchester 3 days ago You know what’s awesome? Most of Kimmel’s audience is left leaning for sure. And that’s TOTALLY okay! But what I love so much about humanity is that even Kimmel’s own fanbase is mad at him for this blatant low level attack on Cruz. I’m not even a huge fan of Cruz, but this just goes to show that humanity is mainly good hearted. Poking fun is one thing, but this was a loaded attack with so much bias it wasn’t even fun or entertaining. I want to openly commend and praise anyone (especially those who do not like Cruz) for recognizing that this is beyond poking fun. This was a disgrace. Shame on Jimmy Kimmel.

mabood1212 2 days ago Kimmel was acting like an ass without even being clever. Cruz ignored the insults with dignity and won the game too.

Mondie4bn 2 days ago Jimmy I watch your show and you make some great points many times. This one was an error though on a couple of fronts. First you bring entire crowd, you fail to walk the fine line between comedy and insults, you bring yourself a trophy for MVP and you insult a Cruz in front of his kids (you should never violate the innocence of kids). You let your emotions get the better of you and it should not happen again, please.

Daxcheese555 3 days ago This was a moment for both parties to humanize each other. What happens? Jimmy mercilessly bullies Cruz in front of his family with an entire crowd behind him. And you can actually see Cruz just take it and try to be the bigger man. What was also pathetic was Kimmel getting a consolation prize while the winner, Cruz, got nothing!

James Havlicek 2 days ago Jimmy is unwatchable . He’s trump obsessed . He no longer funny.
