Like father, like son. President Donald Trump’s namesake Don Jr. took aim and blasted rival funny man Jimmy Kimmel this evening. As he called out Kimmel and ABC after audio surfaced allegedly featuring Kimmel repeatedly using the “n-word,” telling that it is hard to see how Kimmel keeps his job,
“To be clear, I’m 100% against punishing comedians for jokes, even bad jokes from unfunny hack comedians like Jimmy Kimmel…but according to the left’s own woke rules that @jimmykimmel wants to force others to live by, it’s hard to see how @ABCNetwork allows him to keep his show.”

Trump Jr. quoted a tweet from Fox News’ Gregg Re that read:“Thread: In 2018, Jimmy Kimmel begged Tom Arnold to release a Trump ‘N-word’ tape. No tape has surfaced. However, in audio obtained by Fox this weekend, Kimmel imitates a black comedian (https://video.foxnews.com/v/6166453699001) and uses the ‘N-word’ six times”
Along with, “In the audio, from a 2013 podcast, Kimmel also admits to impersonating other black individuals. Representatives for Kimmel, currently on vacation amid a blackface controversy, did not respond to requests for comment. He has not apologized. Details: https://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/”
Fox News reported:
Kimmel abruptly announced last Thursday he’s taking the summer off to spend more time with his family. He has been tapped to host the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards. When announcing his vacation, Kimmel didn’t mention that he was under fire for a recurring skit in which he dressed in blackface for “The Man Show,” which aired from 1999-2004. Kimmel apparently has disregarded calls to apologize for the blackface controversy. A representative from ABC and his talk show did not respond to multiple requests for comment from Fox News on Sunday and Monday.
Kimmel announced last week, “I’m taking this summer off to spend even more time with my family, There’s nothing wrong. I’m healthy, my family’s healthy, I just need a couple of months off.” ABC parent company Disney under pressure now following a decision to pull advertising from the Fox News smash “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” How will they respond?
