Late-night talk show host and self-proclaimed comedian Jimmy Kimmel mocked Fox News for its anti-voke commentary and urged them to “make your own homophobic potato dudes.”
Since Kimmel isn’t exactly a comedy genius, it’s easy to determine his comedic reference when the Hasbro toy Mr. Potato Head is suddenly gender-neutral, appeasing about three people in the entire country. A toy is referred to as ‘Mr.’
Kimmel is not Andy Kaufman, Richard Pryor or George Carlin. It doesn’t take a Mensa candidate to figure out his humor.
Host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Fox News showed several cut-and-paste clips of commentary from hosts that show their obsession with woke culture.
It’s a lazy tactic to deliver a false narrative popularized by The Daily Show and Jon Stewart, who knew their audience wasn’t smart enough to digest full-length news pieces or columns.
After the montage aired, Kimmel declared to Fox News, “Shame on you.”
“Instead of constantly bitching about these products, make your own stuff. No one is going to stop you,” he said.
“Make your own homophobic potato dudes or your angry white boy breakfast cereal, or make your own little plastic bricks to build a wall around a sombrero, whatever you want because I’ve got some Fox News for you, you’re going to embarrass yourself,” Kimmel added. .

Jimmy Kimmel goes after Fox, conveniently forgetting his own history
Jimmy Kimmel accusing Fox News of being alternately homophobic, racist or xenophobic is rich. This is an example of incredibly selective amnesia, considering that he has examples of each of these things in his own past.
Indeed, the man who began his career by making young women jump on trampolines for the delight of teenage viewers on MTV has some homophobia of his own to address.
In 2018, Kimmel joked about his preference for being Sean Hannity or former President Donald Trump’s ‘top’ or ‘bottom’.
He then made another sexist comment in a feud with the Fox News host.
Don’t worry – keep tweeting – you’ll come back up! (Or does Trump prefer you on the bottom?) Either way, keep your chin big..XO https://t.co/R4QJCoGYCL

When you rub your clown makeup on Trump’s ass, does it make his butt look like a creamsicle? https://t.co/DEhmfOh0Hn

Instead of suggesting Fox make their own “angry white guy breakfast cereal,” Kimmel should watch old clips of his angry blackface skits mocking NBA legend Karl Malone.
Kimmel mocked the basketball Hall of Famer and member of the legendary Dream Team, wearing blackface and beginning to butcher the English language in an attempt to portray ‘The Mailman’ as ignorant.
Sounds super anti-wake if you think about it.
In one skit, Kimmel, like Malone, talks about “white people being cut off by aliens.” He has a black face, a black bald cap, and apparently spray on his arms and legs.
In another episode, Kimmel speaks as Malone promoting Mardi Gras.
“We love them naked boobies, so Karl Malone tells you about Mardi Gras in New Orleans,” he says.
Kimmel eventually apologized profusely. Many years later for blackface skits and for using the n-word in comedy routines.
And rather than telling Fox to “build a wall around the sombrero,” Kimmel could address his own xenophobia, demonstrated when he mocked Melania Trump’s accent.

RELATED: Jimmy Kimmel Says Conservatives Are Not Smart Enough To Host Talk Shows
Being smoked by Gutfeld
It’s easy to call Jimmy Kimmel hypocritical about his comments on Fox News. It is easy because he is not a complex being. The rubric that addresses his humor is basic.
But maybe it’s best to let Jimmy do the talking, knowing it will eventually backfire on him.
Several years ago, Kimmel claimed that the late-night talk show scene was dominated by liberal hosts because conservatives weren’t smart enough for the gig.
“Every talk show host is a liberal and that requires a level of intelligence,” he said during a live event for the liberal podcast “Pod Save America.”

Fast forward to today and Fox News’ own late night host Greg Gutfeld is smoking the competition across the board in the ratings. And that includes Jimmy’s little show on ABC.
If only Kimmel was a little more intelligent, he might one day get the same ratings as Gutfeld.
