Even Jimmy Kimmel has his limits, you guys:
Jimmy Kimmel defends lack of Harvey Weinstein jokes: I’m not the “moral conscience of America” https://t.co/XrIeI3I8ss
— The Daily Beast (@thedailybeast) October 13, 2017
More from the Daily Beast:
“And I’ll add that that story came out like I think moments before we went to tape on Thursday and we didn’t have a show on Friday,” Kimmel continued.
But even when Kimmel did finally talk about Weinstein on Monday, he used the story more as a tool to go after Trump Jr. than anything else. “Next time you’re defending your father and you think it’s a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly accused sexual predator, don’t. It doesn’t help,” Kimmel told him, before delivering one joke about Weinstein just to prove that he could.
“They’re saying that I’m calling myself the moral conscience of America, which I most certainly never did and most certainly never would,” he declared.
Maybe he didn’t call himself that … but he was more than happy to embrace that title when it was convenient for him.
Wait, wait, wait. So when liberal journalists bestowed the “moral conscience” crown on him, he was all “no way, man!” right?

So he’s not the moral conscience AND he can’t make jokes. Mr. Kimmel, what would you say you do here? https://t.co/dr6yuL53KG
