Jimmy Kimmel: American People Have Had Enough Trump-Bashing
brietbart ^ | 05/13/2018 | Ben Kew

Posted on 05/14/2018 6:26:45 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27

Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel says that the American people have had enough of the type of anti-Trump humor that he regularly spews and that it is now time for him to “make fun of ourselves.” In an interview with Deadline, Kimmel was asked whether he had prepared a “barrelful of barbs” for President Trump in his upcoming standup routine for ABC’s upfronts.

“Oh, wow. Yeah, you know, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but I guess you’re right. Hopefully, it’ll be the last upfront of the Trump era, too,” Kimmel said.

“So, I don’t know, I don’t know how much focus there will be on that. I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump, and I feel like the upfront is a time to look within and make fun of ourselves,” Kimmel said of his comedy routine for the annual event that sees major advertisers gather to purchase airtime on networks, like ABC, ahead of the summer and fall TV seasons.

"...Americans have had enough President Trump-bashing..."


Normal people do not wish to view their leftwinger seething anger at the end of our long and busy days.
That is precisely why I utterly tuned-out those latenight hosts many years ago.

NOTE: Kimmel did NOT say “enough Trump bashing”... the quote says “I think people have had an ass-full of Donald Trump” (while admitting that he has to bat away from Trump bashing, because it isn’t working).

Yeah...the fake cheering and applause doesn’t help his crap ratings. Who in the heck stays up that late to watch TV anyway?

Meh.

So he’s going to switch from bashing President Trump to bashing Trump supporters?

He’ll pick up some #neverTrump freepers who are probably already closet viewers.

Perhaps he’s hoping for the the Mueller/Sessions bashers.

It isn’t working? So, his jokes are falling flat, his ratings are falling? What’s he really saying?

The constant barbs coming from Kimmel may have become totally counterproductive, in that the resolve of the pro-Trumpers was greatly hardened (because of the patently untrue nature of most of the “jokes”) and even those disposed to not like Trump at whatever level, found the cognitive dissonance a little irritating.

If anyone is going to attack Trump, it had better be on an entirely factual basis, not by building an ersatz straw man, calling it “Trump” and directing the insults at that edifice. The attacker just ends up looking silly.

Those who do not like Donald Trump, for whatever reason, will not be swayed by some half-hearted “apology” from Jimmy Kimmel, no more than they were by the “apology” from Kathy Griffin.

My observations say that people are tired of the Left spewing vitriol and deep seated hatred dividing this great country. The “audience” for their hate is turning them off.

His ratings and advertising $’s must be dropping like his IQ every time he opens his mouth to trash our president.

“Who in the heck stays up that late to watch TV anyway?”

Dropouts and millennials, who don’t have a functioning brain nor any disposable income to buy the advertised products on his bashing of President, posing as entertainment.

Actually, against the three competitors (to include TBS)...Kimmel was occasionally number one in the ratings game. I think the network came to find more advertisers were questioning the Trump-bashing and declining opportunities, even if it was the number one show.

You have to think about this as well...could you maintain this anti-Trump theme for possibly eight years, and then what happens if another Trump-character appears in 2024, could you continue running four more years of anti-Trump-like jokes with the next guy?

There’s also this trend of folks dumping the networks and going off to Netflix...which a lot of college-age kids are doing.

Patriotic Americans are sick and tired of the war against Trump. We used to pride ourselves in the orderly transfer of power every four or eight years. Can’t say that anymore with the previous administration, head investigative agency, and spy agencies working behind the scenes conniving to thwart America’s will.
