Jimmy Kimmel Live sent cameras in search of even one American who could identify Vice President Mike Pence from a photo, and got some pretty amusing guesses instead. In response to a poll that showed twelve percent of Americans have never heard of Mike Pence, host Jimmy Kimmel sent a crew out to conduct person-on-the-street interviews, and see if anyone could recognize the Veep. Most of the respondents couldn’t even hazard a guess. “Maybe a senator of some kind?” guessed one. “He’s with the government, senator somebody,” said another. One respondent even guessed “Bill Clinton,” and then revealed that he had voted for Bernie Sanders in 2016. “I have to admit, in a way I’m jealous of those people, I really am,” Kimmel said after the bit. He’s probably not alone. Watch the clip above, via ABC.

Donald Trump endured a blizzard of mockery on the late night circuit over his tweet about “global waming,” but Jimmy Kimmel decided to light a candle rather than curse the darkness by having two little kids explain climate change for the tweeter-in-chief. On Monday night, Trump tweeted that “In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder,” Trump wrote on Twitter Monday night. “People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!” Live with Jimmy Kimmel host Jimmy Kimmel read Trump’s tweet aloud on the air Tuesday night, and asked “Is he dumb or just pretending to be done?” “I think we give him the benefit of the doubt and say he’s actually dumb,” Kimmel replied to himself, and set Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Enlists Little Children to Explain ‘Global Waming’ and Climate Change to Trump"

Jimmy Kimmel relentlessly mocked Donald Trump’s now-infamous fast food buffet for the Clemson football team, as well as Trump’s subsequent boast that he had personally paid for a large order of “hamberders.” On Tuesday night’s edition of ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host roasted Trump over a now-deleted Trump tweet, which read “Great being with the National Champion Clemson Tigers last night at the White House. Because of the Shutdown I served them massive amounts of Fast Food (I paid), over 1000 hamberders etc. Within one hour, it was all gone. Great guys and big eaters!” “It’s like in the middle of tweeting he had a stroke or something,” Kimmel said. “Or, is it possible he thought they were called hamberders until today?” Kimmel noted that Trump made history by becoming “the first U.S. President ever to congratulate himself on placing a fast food order,” Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Relentlessly Mocks Trump For Renaming Hamburgers as ‘Hamberders’"

Donald Trump‘s campaign released an ad Tuesday demanding that Americans call in and thank him for stuff, and that hotline predictably led viewers to a fundraising appeal once their messages of gratitude were recorded. So on Tuesday night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel naturally complied with the ad’s demand, calling in to his show’s parody version of the Trump gratitude hotline, and discovered just what Americans have to be grateful to Trump for. “Hi, this is Brad Parscale from the Trump reelection committee, and thanks for calling the Donald Trump presidential thank you hotline,” the parody hotline recording said. “For instructions in English, press 1 now. For instructions in Spanish, go back to wherever the hell you came from.” The hotline then gave callers the option to thank Trump for things like “making it okay to use casual racism on Facebook” and “the two Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Brutally Mocks Trump ‘Thank You’ Hotline: Thanks for Making ‘Casual Racism’ Okay"

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!"

WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy 2018’

  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"

Watch Mark Hamill Ignite a ‘Star War’ With Jimmy Kimmel On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame

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!

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!’"

Jimmy Kimmel Advocates for Children’s Healthcare While Holding His Son: ‘Fully Fund CHIP Immediately!’

On Monday, Jimmy Kimmel returned to his show and he had a bit of company with him. The late-night comedian emotionally told his audience that the reason why he was absent last week was because his son Billy had another open-heart surgery. “Daddy cries on TV, but Billy doesn’t,” Kimmel quipped. After thanking the doctors at Children’s Hospital for treating his son as well as “children from every income level,” he said that their health “is especially threatened” because of CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program). “It covers around 9 million American kids whose parents make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but don’t have access to coverage- affordable coverage through their jobs, which means it almost certainly covers children you know,” Kimmel explained. “About one in eight children are covered only by CHIP. And it’s not controversial. It’s not a partisan thing. The last time funding was authorized was in Continue reading "Jimmy Kimmel Advocates for Children’s Healthcare While Holding His Son: ‘Fully Fund CHIP Immediately!’"

On Thursday night, actress Melissa McCarthy took the opportunity while guest-hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live to address a serious issue facing our planet. “As you know, there’s been a lot of talk these days about the environment, our changing climate, and global warming,” McCarthy began. “Some people say it’s real. And then the smart people know it’s a ruse invented by the illuminati.” She told her audience that there was an “even bigger” issue that has gone “un-debunked” for hundreds of years. McCarthy then presented a public service announcement that “might just save your life.” “I’d like to talk to you about a subject the mainstream media doesn’t want you to hear about,” McCarthy in the PSA said. “They say we shouldn’t ask questions. They say it’s settled science. They call people who disagree with them ‘deniers.’ Of course, I’m talking about… gravity.” She mocked the “so-called” Continue reading "Watch Melissa McCarthy Debunk The ‘So-Called’ Science of… Gravity"

On Tuesday night, actress Tracee Ellis Ross filled in for Jimmy Kimmel and presented a new children’s book dedicated to educate men about sexual harassment. The Black-ish star clarified that the sexual harassment scandals that have plagued Hollywood in recent weeks aren’t “scandals” but rather a “systemic problem about the abuse of power that takes place across all industries, and had enabled a culture of inequity to persist for far too long.” “Treating another human being with respect isn’t complicated, but it seems a bit confusing for a lot of men out there,” Ross said. “So, I wrote a book.” She then began reading from The Handsy Man. “There is a guy, with ten long fingers, creepy glares and hugs than linger. If you’re a woman, you’re not a fan. I speak, of course, of The Handsy Man,” the first page read. In the book, a character who resembled Continue reading "Tracee Ellis Ross Debuts New Children’s Book ‘The Handsy Man’ To Explain Sexual Harassment to Confused Men"

We like to keep on tabs on the rivalry between Inside The NBA hosts Shaquille O’Neal and Charles Barkley. The former NBA greats and current TNT colleagues have been engaged in an ongoing feud which at times has seemed good-natured, and at other times has seemed legitimately tense. Monday night offered a moment that seemed to be more lighthearted in nature — but with Shaq and Sir Charles, you just never know. Shaq, on Monday, guest-hosted Jimmy Kimmel Live — in place of Kimmel, who has the week off. And during his opening monologue, the four-time NBA champion took a shot at his TNT cohort. “I have all the things you need to host this show,” Shaq said. “A suit, a band, and a stupid, no-talent nemesis. Jimmy has Matt Damon. I have Charles Barkley. He’s like a balder, fatter Matt Damon.” The line drew laughs, along Continue reading "Shaq Hits Charles Barkley While Guest-Hosting Kimmel: ‘A Balder, Fatter Matt Damon’"

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel put Caitlyn Jenner in the hot seat for her politics. “Do you regret voting for President Trump?” he asked. “I don’t agree with everything he’s doing,” she responded, “but I have always been — I’m older, I grew up in a country when you actually said the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag at school.” That remark was welcomed by applause. Jenner was critical of Trump for rolling back Obama-era protections for transgender students. She was also spotted at the White House back in April and reportedly met with Trump officials. She elaborated that she believes in “limited government,” which makes her “on the Republican side.” “I never really outwardly came out and supported him,” she clarified. “I supported whoever the Republican candidate was going to be, but the press kinda puts you there.” Jenner did acknowledge that Trump has done Continue reading "Kimmel to Caitlyn Jenner: ‘Do You Regret Voting For President Trump?’"

On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel mocked President Trump for tweeting that he’s the victim of the “single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history.” “He’s even making witch hunts great again,” Kimmel joked. He then said that the only way we’d know that Trump is a witch is “when the White House falls on top of him and we see his feet curl up.” But to find out whether or not the ongoing investigations into Trump is a witch hunt, Kimmel decided to ask Abigail Shipton, an actual witch (played by Andy Samberg). Speaking from “Witchburg, Florida,” Abigail told Kimmel “Of course not.” “I’ve been hunted and it’s nothing like this,” she added. Watch the clip above, via ABC.

obama kimmelLast night, Jimmy Kimmel opened his show with an emotional monologue about his newborn son, who was born with congenital heart disease and had to have surgery shortly after being born. Kimmel, through tears, described the experience as “terrifying,” but noted that the story has a “happy ending,” saying that he’s now at home, and he’s “eating, he’s sleeping, he peed on his mother today when she was changing his diaper.” At the end of the monologue, he spoke about President Donald Trump, who, last month proposed a plan that would cut funding to the National Institute of Health by $6 billion. “And thank God our congressmen made a deal last night not to go along with that. They actually increased funding by $2 billion, and I applaud them for doing that,” he said. Kimmel added, “No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to Continue reading "‘Exactly Why We Fought So Hard For the ACA’: Obama Praises Jimmy Kimmel’s Monologue on Son’s Surgery"
