The guy who cried about a lion that was shot in Zimbabwe by an American tourist now makes jokes about ‘some’ dead Americans. Jimmy Kimmel, late-night host of the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Show’ cracked jokes about Floridians who have died reportedly of Covid-19. Kimmel tried to tie red states to the deaths and claimed that it was just ‘right-wing nuts’, but a report by The New York Times would prove that was a lie.
“Being president is not a fun job right now. Climate change. Murder hornets. And, of course, the relentlessly maddening fact that Biden has to ask people to take a life-saving vaccine. It’s like if we were skydiving and he had to convince us to open our parachutes. It is ridiculous,” he whined before singling out Republicans for not taking the vaccine:
“This is an interesting statistic. Covid deaths have proven to be much higher in states that voted for Trump,” he noted, before insulting Trump voters as stupid hicks:
“Basically, if your state has more GEDs than PhDs, stay indoors. Of the 54,000 Americans who’ve died from Covid since the start of the Summer, almost 1 in 5 of them died in Florida. Which my God, all those orphan ferrets. It’s a shame,” he mocked.
Afterward, Kimmel said “the right-wing nuts” and proceeded to take shots at ‘wellness influencers’ who have spoken out against the vaccine.

While Kimmel jokes that it’s states who supported Trump who are reportedly dying of Covid, six of the worst 10 states for death rates per 100,000 citizens are in the ones Joe Biden won in November, according to The New York Times.
Kimmel also joked during one of his monologues that people who don’t get the shot shouldn’t receive beds in ICU. He’s not the first to make that statement but it’s painfully apparent that the left is trying to turn vaccination into a class. One where they would deny a person medical care because they do not have a vaccine card.
