Jimmy Kimmel Trolls Tucker Carlson During Oscars Without Even Using His Name
Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel smacked down Fox News host and right-wing conspiracy theorist Tucker Carlson during Sunday night’s ceremony.
As people cheered after “Everything Everywhere All at Once” nabbed the trophy for Best Editing, Kimmel turned his commentary into a brilliant jab at Fox News and Carlson.
“Anyone who’s ever received a text message from their father knows how important editing is,” Kimmel said. Editors do amazing things,” he said. “Editors can turn 44,000 hours of violent insurrection footage into a respectful sightseeing tour of the Capitol. Their work is underappreciated.”
Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy gave access to thousands of hours of Capitol security footage exclusively to Carlson. Fox News then used highly selective editing and cherrypicked footage to claim that Jan. 6 rioters were, as Carlson put it, “sightseers” who were “orderly and meek.”
In reality, the mob that assaulted the Capitol was seeking to stop the certification of the election, overturn the results and keep Donald Trump in power despite the fact that he lost.
Watch Kimmel’s take in the clip below.
