As you may have heard, Jimmy Kimmel has turned his late-night ABC time slot into an ersatz version of “The Daily Show,” all with a little help from one Charles Schumer. Such behavior is bound to alienate conservative viewers, so what does Kimmel think about that?
Well, according to Kimmel himself, if they don’t agree with him, he doesn’t want to talk to them anyway.
Kimmel made that stunning statement during an appearance on “CBS Sunday Morning,” where the controversial host tried to play off any audience losses as a kind of profile in courage on his part.
“Three years ago, I was equally liked by Republicans and Democrats,” Kimmel said, according to The Daily Wire. “And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30 percent, or whatever. And you know, as a talk show host, that’s not ideal but I would do it again in a heartbeat.”
However, as usual, he insists he’s not trying to be the voice of morality, he just plays one on TV.
“I’m not … I’m nobody’s moral arbiter,” Kimmel said. “You don’t have to watch the show. You don’t have to listen to what I say.”
