Throughout the 2020 presidential election campaign, Republicans and conservatives warned that a Joe Biden victory would destroy America. The Biden administration has been in office for three months and things appear relatively stable, leading critics to find new ways to attack President Biden. But according to Jimmy Kimmel, they don’t have much ground to stand on.

Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue last night focused on two figures in particular: Fox News host Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump, Jr. Both have been mocked and ridiculed by Kimmel in the past but it now seems like Kimmel is bored of their act.

For Carlson, it comes on the heels of Last Week Tonight with John Oliver warning its audience about the danger Carlson presents. Meanwhile, Donald Trump, Jr. (aka DJTJ) continues to defend his father’s legacy despite the former president’s resounding defeat last November.

Carlson and Trump, Jr. want to blame President Biden for all social and political issues facing the country right now. Kimmel isn’t buying it and says that it’s getting harder for Republicans to make a convincing argument against Joe Biden.

Tucker Carlson had a lot to say about Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s Grammy performance. He and guest Candace Owen connected the women’s dancing to the downfall of the United States as we know it.

The commentary relates to Carlson’s and other conservatives’ criticism of “cancel culture” as the Fox News host alludes to cartoon characters coming under fire. While someone like Bill Maher is on board with ending cancel culture, Jimmy Kimmel effectively dismisses the argument made by Carlson.

After reminding the audience how much he dislikes Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene,  Kimmel caught up with his old friend DJTJ. Donald Trump, Jr. attacked President Biden for refusing to comment on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s sexual harassment scandal. Kimmel warns Trump, Jr. about throwing stones given his father’s history of alleged misbehavior.

When Trump, Jr. argues that President Biden’s first 60 days in office have been the worst in American politics and the history of the presidency, Kimmel can only laugh. The late night host questions DJTJ’s knowledge of presidential history in another attempt to dismiss the outrage.

There will be reasons to criticize and second-guess President Biden over the next four years. Jimmy Kimmel is likely to do some of it himself.  But if Kimmel is going to take Republicans like Tucker Carlson and Donald Trump, Jr. seriously, he needs a little more substance in their arguments.
