Jimmy Kimmel finally said something funny. He claims that talk show hosts are liberal because the job requires intelligence. That’s rich. Apparently, he’s not smart enough to know that he’s turning off half of the country or more.
Jimmy Kimmel: ‘Almost Every Talk Show Host Is Liberal’ Because ‘It Requires a Certain Level of Intelligence’
Jimmy Kimmel made an appearance over the weekend with former Barack Obama speech-writer, Jon Favreau, on a panel discussion for Favreau’s podcast “Pod Save America.” As reported by IJR, Favreau’s wife tweeted out that Jimmy Kimmel said, “It just so happens that almost every talk show host is a liberal and that’s because it requires a level of intelligence.”

“Pope Kimmel” – as Guy Benson likes to call to him ever since he started using his current TV platform to grandstand and promote anti-Trump rhetoric – is the same fellow who brought the world the comedy skit, “Guess What’s in My Pants.”
Kimmel got smacked around on Twitter for the comment:
Bwah ha ha
It takes an amazing amount of liberal indoctrination for ostensibly "smart" people to hold such stunningly dense opinions https://t.co/tDKJ4EQZWY

Nice try, Jimmy. Stick to interviewing your dumb celebrity friends.
