Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel unloaded on the Federal Communications Commission and President Trump late Thursday evening, blasting the Commander-in-Chief for “appointing this jack hole” at the FCC who recently ended “net neutrality.”
“Thanks to you, and this jack hole you appointed to run the FCC, big corporations are about to take full control of the internet”
Kimmel was delivering his opening monologue when he slammed the Trump administration for putting an end to certain sections of Obama’s net neutrality act, implemented just two years ago.
“Meanwhile the Federal Communications Commission did something absolutely despicable today, they voted to put an end to ‘Net Neutrality.’ This is the rule that says everyone gets equal access to the internet,” Kimmel ranted.
“As long as they tell us they’re doing it now, internet service providers will be allowed to slow down or block web traffic to any website or streaming service that they like, which benefits the big telecom companies and does the opposite for all of us,” he added.
“I just want to say thank you to President Trump. Thanks to you, and this jack hole you appointed to run the FCC, big corporations are about to take full control of the internet,” he concluded.

LATE NIGHT LECTURE: Jimmy Kimmel Defends Weinstein, Blames 'Gun Nuts'
Late-night comedian and aspiring political pundit Jimmy Kimmel quietly deflected criticism that he intentionally avoided Harvey Weinstein’s sex scandal during his show last week, saying “gun nuts” were out to discredit the Hollywood liberal.
Kimmel was speaking with ABC’s Good Morning America when he softly defended high-powered studio executive Harvey Weinstein, saying the Hollywood hot-shot’s decades long history of sexual assaults was not “equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas.”
“First of all, the Harvey Weinstein thing, people like this false equivalence as if that somehow is equivalent to what happened in Las Vegas,” said Kimmel.
“Harvey Weinstein is not a friend of mine, I’m not in the movie business,” he deflected. “And I’ll add that the story came out moments before we went to tape on Thursday, and we didn’t have a show on Friday.”
“What they’re doing now, is they’re trying to drag up –especially these gun nuts- trying to drag any comedy bit out of context and use it as some kind of proof that I’m calling myself the moral conscience of America,” said the late-night comedian.
Jimmy Kimmel made national headlines this month when he publicly lashed out at President Trump, Republicans, GOP voters, and second Amendment advocates following the devastating shooting in Las Vegas. Weeks earlier, the liberal found himself at the center of the nation’s healthcare debate; repeatedly slamming the Graham-Cassidy bill on national television.

“The bottom line is this: I accept the invitation. I will come down there,” Kimmel added. “What I’m going to do is—and I think you’re going actually to like this, Roy—I’m going to come to Gadsden, Alabama with a team of high school cheerleaders, Okay? We’ll meet you at the mall. Don’t worry, I can get you in.”
