TV host Jimmy Kimmel has hit back at Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene after she reported him to the Capitol Police for a joke he made about Will Smith slapping her.
Kimmel, speaking in a Kimmel Live segment titled ‘Jimmy vs. Klan Mom’ last night, said: ‘She’s dialing 911 because she got made fun of. She’s a snowflake and a sociopath at the same time.
‘A snowciopath, as we’ll refer to her from now on… If she’s going to report me to the police, if that’s how she wants to play it, I’ll report you right back.’
Georgia Republican Greene yesterday tweeted that she had reported Kimmel to the Capitol Police for making a ‘threat of violence’ against her with the joke.
She quoted a clip from Kimmel Live where the comedian said: ‘This one Klan mom is especially upset with the three Republican senators who said they’ll vote yes on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.’
He then read Greene’s tweet about the Supreme Court nominee. ‘Murkowski, Collins and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for #KBJ.’
‘Wow where is Will Smith when you really need him, huh?’
Kimmel shot back after Greene’s police report: ‘Officer? I would like to report a joke.’
Greene responded: ‘You weren’t joking. You hide your misogny and your racism behind your ‘jokes’ on @ABC. This was a dog whistle to the violent left to assault me or worse, and your already inspiring fantasies against me. How many new death threats will I get that are your fans?’
A number of Republicans went after Jackson over what they called lenient sentencing in child porn cases during her time as a trial judge.
‘I do not condone death or any kind of threats against anyone because I get dozens of them a week myself from the sickos that align with you,’ Kimmel added, before slamming Greene.
‘This woman, remember she is the one that endorsed fringe conspiracy theories and repeatedly indicated support for executing prominent Democratic politicians. Now she’s dialing 911 because she got made fun of.’
He warned Greene he would ‘report you right back’ but would instead go the ‘justice league’ rather than the police before asking stage hands to ‘bring me my writing desk’ and to play some ‘writing music’.
Kimmel then appeared to write a message to Batman warning of Greene and asking the superhero to ‘check her out’.
