Jimmy Kimmel has a little fun with soon-to-be Sen. Roy Moore

Kimmel sent a comedian to a Moore rally:

And a little twitter back and forth between Moore and Kimmel:

[www.washingtonpost.com]

"“I had an interesting day today,” Jimmy Kimmel told his ABC late-night show audience on Thursday. “I somehow found myself in a Twitter war with Roy Moore.”

This is true — the U.S. Senate Republican nominee from Alabama fired off a couple of tweets at Kimmel after “Jake Byrd” (a character on Kimmel’s show played by comedian Tony Barbieri) crashed his rally at a church Wednesday.

Byrd pretended to be an ardent Moore supporter and “defended” him against accusations of sexual misconduct with teen girls while he was in his 30s.

“I’m your number one fan…. Does that look like the face of someone who hits on teenage girls?!” Byrd called out as he was removed from the church by security.

Thursday afternoon, Moore tweeted this:

Kimmel explained the whole situation during his monologue — and he didn’t hold back. Here’s the complete transcript and video."

I'm not a fan of this. Gets publicity for Jimmy Kimmel. Probably helps Roy Moore.

Republicans in Alabama already don't believe Moore's accusers. But they DO believe that there's a national conspiracy against him, and that Hollywood is part of that. A stunt like this only reinforces that view.

These people are going to vote for Moore regardless. They are not the ones to worry about.

I don't think it's cool to go to a political rally and do fake interference for entertainment purposes. It just adds more distrust where people already don't trust. We don't like it when James O'Keefe does it, it shouldn't be OK for Jimmy Kimmel either. What would be courageous is to go to that rally as an opponent and stand up and say why to Roy Moore's face. That I would respect.

They ignore logic, they ignore emotion, they ignore satire. What remains?

One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution;
one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship."
