Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel isn’t exactly known for having a wholesome sense of humor, often times resorting to shock jock style jokes in order to cajole his audience out of a few chuckles to validate himself as a “funny guy.”
Kimmel has been on the warpath against Trump, his administration, and anyone who has come out in any way to support the president, making our commander-in-chief the butt of many a joke on his program.
However, his latest bit is pushing things just a little too hard into the realm of the vulgar and obscene.
Fulminating on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel offered his own elegant views regarding President Trump’s tweet in which he wrote that he had the capacity to pardon himself, saying of the president, “Is it possible he thinks pardon myself is another way to say masturbate?”
Kimmel started his rant with this:
The president also weighed in today on the subject of his omnipotence. His lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, has been going around claiming that the president has the power to pardon himself. In other words, he could commit a crime and absolve himself from any punishment for the crime.
And it turns out the president agrees with that assessment. He wrote, “As has been stated by numerous legal scholars” that he saw on Fox News, “I have the absolute right to pardon myself. But why would I do that when I have done nothing wrong?”
“Is it possible he thinks pardon myself is another way to say masturbate? Because otherwise — can you imagine how Donald Trump would have reacted if Barack Obama said he had the right to pardon himself? That shelf of hair on his head would pop open like a hatch and a little Trumpelstiltskin would jump out in a fit of rage. His beady little eyes would bulge out of it until they burst like two gerbils in a microwave. Spinning and screaming until they turned bright purple with rage and stomped a chicken bucket-sized hole in the president’s head. That’s how it would go if Obama said he could pardon himself.”
Kimmel concluded his little rant by saying, “Don says he can do it; he’s allowed to pardon himself, which is definitely the kind of thing people who are not guilty say.”
If Kimmel spent half the amount of time he wastes on really bad jokes about the president and Republicans on volunteer work in his local community, it would be shocking to see much more improved the area would become.
Unfortunately, it’s easy money to poke fun of the president and to use dirty words and perverted speech shame someone you disagree with politically.

Does Your Family Need a New Years’ Media Resolution? Here Are Some Tips
Maybe your teen got the latest model smartphone for Christmas, or your toddler got a tablet that you swear you’ll only use for educational purposes. After what was hopefully a joyful holiday season, now is the perfect time to consider how you can make the most of the time you have in the new year with your family—especially when it comes to media use.
Common Sense Media, who seeks to “empower parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.”
In a helpful blog post for Common Sense, Caroline Knorr offers a list powerful yet simple New Year’s resolutions every family should consider if they want to be intentional regarding the media that permeates their lives and “raise kids with a healthy, balanced relationship with screens.”
“Be curious — not judgy — about your kid’s media.”
There’s no doubt about it, it seems almost every new trend our kids seem to catch onto is just plain weird. “…Often, when kids get into things we don’t know about or understand, we worry,” Knorr writes. “And that makes us clamp down, when we really should be opening up.”
Instead, Knorr suggests doing something your kids are into: “Play Fortnite, watch Good Mythical Morning, read a Rick Riordan book, download Snapchat or Tik Tok. Talk to your kids and see what they like about the most popular apps, YouTube shows, and social media. They’ll respond better to your concerns if you’ve experienced these things for yourself.”
“Help your kid learn to manage themselves.”
“Two things make it really hard for kids to get off their devices,” Knorr explains. “First, they’re not great at self-regulating yet. And second, games, apps, social media, and even streaming services are all designed to keep them hooked as long as possible.”
Listen, technology isn’t going away, and our goal as parents shouldn’t be to make it go away. Instead, we want to put in the effort, even through the hard days, to teach our kids balance.
“Use tech such as screen-time settings and parental controls as tools to help your kids gain the skills they need to draw limits,” Knorr suggests, even if it means occasionally taking the “blunt-force” approach and turning off the internet for a spell.
“If they prove they’re good at sticking to limits, ease off a bit,” Knorr writes. “If they falter, keep your eyes on the prize. With your support, encouragement, and guidance, they’ll get there.”
“Have a family movie night.”
It might seem like a cliché, but nothing can possibly replace quality time with your kids, especially when consuming any kind of media. Exposing you and your children to countless teachable moments (from appropriate, ideally pre-viewed films and shows), the family movie night is a powerful tool.
“You can talk about issues, characters’ strengths and flaws, and themes,” Knorr suggests. And, if you’re a homeschooling family, holding a thoughtful conversation during a science- or history-themed movie definitely counts as a lesson!
“Take one small step toward privacy.”
Whether you are looking to protect your kids from peer pressure, online predators, or even just tasteless advertising, media privacy is crucial for families. “Lots of companies get around the Children’s Privacy and Protection Act (COPPA) and collect data on kids’ accounts,” Knorr explains. “This means they could be targeted with ads and other creepy stuff.”
Thankfully, you can control your privacy settings with any device or app you use, you just need to do some tweaking in your account settings.
“Embrace the “digital wellness” trend.”
Technology is meant to be a positive aspect of our lives, not a detriment, a stumbling block, or an addiction. If any of those are apt descriptors for tech use in your family, Knorr urges you to take a deep breath and evaluate the situation.
In response to the dark side of screen time, giants in the industry such as Facebook and Google are now offering several digital wellness features. Although they aren’t meant to replace personal discipline, Knorr says “they’re a good reminder to be more self-aware and ditch what doesn’t feel truly helpful or enjoyable.”
“If there’s something you’d like to cut down on, use built-in tools to set limits for yourself,” she continues. “Help your kids become more aware of their own online time and help them take control of their use, too. You don’t have to shut everything down. But really focus on what you’re doing, when you’re doing it, and why.”
God created humans with incredible capabilities, imagination, and creativity. Our use of technology can be a great gift, but it will take a healthy dose of responsibility for families to find a healthy balance. If screen time has become a beast in your family, try these simple steps today to tame it.
Late Night Host Says Trump Shouldn’t Be Allowed to Address Nation
Somehow, comedians in the media believe that they have some authority that supersedes that of the President’s.
The office of the President has been under near-constant attack in the media from the moment that Donald Trump took office.
To be totally fair, the fact that there was talk of impeaching the 45th President previous to his inauguration should have solidified that reality, but it bears repeating in this world of overt and repugnant resistance.
Don’t get me wrong; if you disagree with an elected official, by all means express yourself using the First Amendment. What offends so many in America today isn’t that sort of criticism. What we are incensed by is the carte blanche opposition that Trump receives no matter what he does.
The President of the United States could adopt a litter of abandoned puppies and the left would be whining about what breed they are.
Now, as the President prepares to address the nation tonight at 9pm, there are not only networks who are considering not airing his remarks, but at least one late night host believes that Donald Trump shouldn’t even be allowed to do so.
Seth Meyers, host of “Late Night” on NBC, said the president wants to deliver the speech on Tuesday night “to repeat his lies,” and questioned the decision to give him air time.
“First of all, just because Trump wants to address the nation doesn’t mean networks should air it,” Meyers said. “Otherwise, they’re just passing on his lies unfiltered.”
“They should either reject him outright, or, if he insists on speaking in primetime, make him do it as a contestant on ‘The Masked Singer,'” Meyers joked.
This absolute nonsense from Meyers comes at a time in which children are being dragged to our border from the south, with several now having died due to complications from the journey.
Many expect that the President will declare a humanitarian crisis at the border during his primetime address, possibly invoking the military to assist with the issue.
