Jimmy Kimmel issues pathetic response after WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany rips him to shreds

McEnany has not been press secretary for very long, but she is already showing members of the leftist media like Kimmel that she is not someone to be messed with.

Late-night television host and shameless liberal Jimmy Kimmel offered a pathetic response on Wednesday after he received what he described as a “scolding” from White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany for a “joke” he had made about President Donald Trump taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against COVID-19.

“Apparently that message resonated, because I got a scolding from White House press secretary number four, Kayleigh Mc-a-looney,” Kimmel said on his show. “She’s definitely still getting her hair colored, right? Anyway, thank you for watching, Kayleigh. It’s always nice to welcome a new fan.”

The joke in question involved Kimmel saying that Trump was “trying to kill himself” by taking the drug, despite the fact that it has been widely prescribed to combat the coronavirus.

This came hours after McEnany named Kimmel as one of many members of the media who she attacked for their “apoplectic” hydroxychloroquine coverage, with others being MSNBC‘s Joe Scarborough and CNN‘s Chris Cuomo, according to Fox News. During her press briefing, McEnany reminded the public that hydroxychloroquine should not be taken without a prescription, which the president has.

“No one should be taking this without a prescription from their doctor,” McEnany said early in the day. “But that being said, I’ve seen a lot of apoplectic coverage of hydroxychloroquine. You had Jimmy Kimmel saying the president’s ‘trying to kill himself’ by taking it, you had Joe Scarborough saying ‘this will kill you.’ You had Neil Cavuto saying, ‘What have you got to lose? The one thing you have to lose are lives.’”

Kimmel was recently forced to apologize after he showed a misleading video of Vice President Mike Pence carrying an empty box of personal protective equipment (PPE) to a hospital. Unsurprisingly, the shameless liberal used his apology to further attack President Trump.

“It would appear that @vp was joking about carrying empty boxes for a staged publicity stunt,” Kimmel tweeted. “The full video reveals that he was carrying full boxes for a staged publicity stunt. My apologies. I know how dearly this administration values truth.”

McEnany has not been press secretary for very long, but she is already showing members of the leftist media like Kimmel that she is not someone to be messed with. We can’t wait to see her stick it to plenty more liberals in the future!
