Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene recently reported Jimmy Kimmel to Capitol Police for a joke the comedian made at her expense. On Thursday night, Kimmel responded to the controversial lawmaker.
Rep. Greene filed a police report after Kimmel delivered a joke in his monologue on Tuesday. The late-night host said “This woman, Klan mom, is especially upset with the three Republican senators who said they’ll vote yes on Ketanji Brown Jackson, who’s nominated for the Supreme Court. She tweeted, ‘Murkowski, Collins, and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for KBJ.’ Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him?”
According to Greene, she reported Kimmel’s threat of violence to the Capitol police. The Georgia republican tweeted this out, to which Kimmel responded that it was a joke.
Kimmel was able to take his response a little further on Thursday. The comedian kicked off his monologue by addressing the Greene controversy.
Jimmy Kimmel calls Marjorie Taylor Greene a snowflake and a sociopath
After initially trying to get over the shock of what his life has become, Jimmy Kimmel tried to make sense of Marjorie Taylor Greene filing a police report about him. According to Kimmel, it highlights Greene’s hypocrisy.
Kimmel points out that Greene contacted the Capitol Police, the same police force that she voted against honoring for their efforts on January 6. The comedian also suggests that Greene is trying to get him canceled, making her part of the same “cancel culture” she rails against.
Going further, Kimmel condemned threats of any kind against Greene. He did, however, note that Greene constantly uses guns in her campaign ads yet feels threatened by a joke. The late-night host went on to remind his audience of Greene’s history of supporting conspiracy theories. Added up, it makes Greene both a “snowflake” and a “sociopath,” or “snowciopath,” according to Kimmel.
Kimmel capped off his response by penning a letter to Batman. In it, he compared Marjorie Taylor Greene to the Riddler, the Joker, and the Penguin. Whether Greene responds to Kimmel or the Dark Knight remains to be seen.
