Jimmy Kimmel names and disgraces GOP’s ‘scariest’ senator: ‘It’s no joke’

Jimmy Kimmel was spooked by some of the questions Republican senators asked Supreme Court nominee Ketanji Brown Jackson during his confirmation hearing on Tuesday. But one GOP lawmaker stood above the rest in all the wrong ways: Sen. Josh Hawley.

“What a dirty guy this guy. He’s a senator from Missouri,” Kimmel said. “Spent much of his 30 minutes reading a list of child pornography videos from a case the judge was working on.”

The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” audience whispered.

“He did,” Kimmel said. “Oh, it’s not a joke.”

The White House later called Hawley’s actions an “embarrassing smear, signaling QAnon.”

Hawley is “trying to throw meat at these Q-Anuts and smear a woman who is a mother of two girls and is clearly not pro-child pornography,” Kimmel said.

Next, Kimmel showed an image of Hawley Rep. elbow bumping Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), who is reportedly the subject of a federal investigation to determine if he and others paid for sex at parties. fueled by drugs involving a 17 year old. -old girl, possibly including paying for her to travel with him across state lines.

Or as Kimmel called Gaetz: “A handsome honest American who very innocently teenage Venmos – because he’s nice, that’s why he does it.”

Kimmel said the GOP has no real criticism of Jackson, so they claim she’s soft on crime.

“It’s funny to hear the same people who let the president off the hook trying to overthrow the government call anyone ‘soft on crime,'” Kimmel observed.
