After ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel jokingly referenced the White House staffer essentially fired by First Lady Melania Trump, his guest, former FLOTUS Michelle Obama, noted that she never had a situation like that. The host greeted Michelle Obama, who appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night to discuss her new book Becoming, by begging her to go back to the White House with her husband, so as to replace President Donald Trump, who Kimmel has vocally opposed on his show. “If you wanted to get someone in your husband’s administration fired, how would you do that?” Kimmel asked, later in the segment. Last week, Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel was ousted from the administration after the first lady sent out a press released endorsing her firing, which raised questions on how much control she has over the White House’s internal workings “Why do you Continue reading "Michelle Obama on Melania Trump Getting Staffer Fired: Didn’t Happen ‘Once’ While I Was There"
Michelle Obama sat down with late-night host Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night to talk about her post-White House life and her new book. After talking about how her husband Barack Obama has a messy desk, getting real about paying for food in the White House and how her dogs had appearance schedules too, Mrs. Obama read off prepared cards of things she could not say while First Lady. “The whole eight years we were in the White House, we used Laura Bush’s Netflix password,” she read, offering to pay the bill. “I’m not sure which one’s Sasha and which one’s Malia,” she also read, adding her girls would agree. “I stole the phrase when we go low, they go high from the back of a Snapple cap,” she read with a laugh. “Clooney is my freebie,” she also read, without comment. The only one Mrs. Obama actually said was not true Continue reading "Michelle Obama Reads Things She Couldn’t Say as First Lady on Jimmy Kimmel Live!"
Want to see a clip of toddlers crying at the prospect of learning that all their candy has suddenly disappeared? Or perhaps they are upset because of the sudden realization that their parents are fame-whoring trolls? For the past seven years, Jimmy Kimmel has asked parents to pretend they ate all their kids’ Halloween candy and post a video of it to YouTube. Of over the thousand videos submitted, producers and editors went through all of them and narrowed it down to the best of the best. This is an odd tradition, as it is created on the prospect that people actually want to watch toddler tantrums. Or maybe they just want that one sweet palate cleanser where kid looks at his or her parent (with slight terror in his or her eyes) telling the parent that “it’s okay.”
Jimmy Kimmel reacted to the sudden cancelation of ABC’s mega hit Roseanne. On Tuesday, a tweet made by Roseanne Barr went viral attacking former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, calling her the “baby” of “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.” Within hours, ABC announced that it would be canceling the show. “You’re not going to believe this… but she tweeted something outrageous,” Kimmel sarcastically said to his audience. “ABC decided to cancel its highest-rated show Roseanne following a tweet in which Roseanne compared an African American woman, a former advisor to President Obama to an ape, which did not sit well with ABC management or with anyone with a brain really. Kimmel called the cancellation a “huge blow” for ABC and had some fun at his own network’s expense. “We don’t have much on this network- we’re hoping that the NBA Finals goes eleven games this year. We’re Continue reading "Kimmel Addresses ABC’s ‘Huge Blow’ in Canceling Roseanne: ‘We Don’t Have Much on This Network’"
Jimmy Kimmel has a new game you can play on Family Fun Night. Kimmel introduced a board game that is meant for you to follow along Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s Russia investigation and “have fun with the whole family too.” It’s called “Cluesion.” Get it? Cl-ue-sion? Collusion? Inspired by the classic Parker Brothers board game Clue, “Cluesion” lets you be Mueller. And whoever finds out which of the six suspects colluded with Russia wins. Instead of Colonel Mustard and Miss Peacock, the suspects include President Trump, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kusher, Donald Trump Jr., Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn. “I’m going to guess it was Michael Flynn with leaked Hillary emails at Mar-a-Lago,” the daughter guessed. The commercial’s narrator explained between the suspects, the potential crimes, and various locations that include the Oval Office and Trump Tower, the “possibilities are endless.” “I Continue reading "Kimmel Debuts ‘Cluesion’ Board Game Inspired By Robert Mueller’s Russia Investigation"
Jimmy Kimmel got into quite a feud with Star Wars icon Mark Hamill. Hamill, best known for playing Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars franchise, is receiving his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. However, he was pretty selective as to where he wanted his star… which was right outside Kimmel’s studio. Kimmel caught up with Hamill, who was using a jackhammer to prepare for his star, but little did the late night host know that the actor was destroying his own star. “Wait a minute… that’s my star you’re jacking up!” Kimmel exclaimed. “Yeah, well not anymore!” Hamill laughed. “Why don’t you put your star in front of Hooters?” Hamill attempted to defuse the situation by using Jedi mind tricks, but Kimmel insisted that it only works “in the movies.” “What movie?” Hamill asked. “Star Wars!” Kimmel responded. “Exactly! This Continue reading "Watch Mark Hamill Ignite a ‘Star War’ With Jimmy Kimmel On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame"
On Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel conducted an reenactment of the cheers seen at the Winter Olympics by the North Korean cheerleaders. Kimmel began by referring to the over 200 women sent by North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un the “stars” of the Olympics. “These women are cheering like their lives depended on it… because they do. They literally do,” Kimmel joked. After showing a clip of the North Korean cheerleaders to the audience, the late-night talk show host admitted that he thought the cheers were “catchy” and that it looked “like fun.” “We should try — we should see if we can do it here with our studio audience,” Kimmel said. He divided the clip into two parts, replaying the first part to the audience, who would then attempt to do it themselves. “Great, very well done!” Kimmel exclaimed. “I’m impressed.” Kimmel then played the second part and Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Has His Audience Mimic North Korean Cheerleaders: ‘I Feel Like a Dictator!’"
