Jimmy Kimmel on Judge Jackson Hearings: 'They Give a Number of Our Republican Senators a Chance to Compete in One of Their Favorite Events, the Subtle Racism Jamboree'
ABC’s left-wing late night host and alleged comedian Jimmy Kimmel tried his hand at Supreme Court analysis on his Monday show and failed miserably as he accused Republicans of treating Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s confirmation hearings as a “subtle racism jamboree.” He then declared the prospect of her being approved to the high court by a party-line vote in the Senate to be the GOP’s “ultimate nightmare.”
As part of his opening monologue, Kimmel tried to explain the proceedings while hurling his nasty attack at Republicans:
In Washington, they’re holding a confirmation hearing for Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee today. Unless something unexpected happens, the vote is expected to go along party lines. These hearings, they give a number of our Republican senators a chance to compete in one of their favorite events, the Subtle Racism Jamboree.
