Last month, comedian Jimmy Kimmel devoted almost his entire late-night monologue one night to Ted Cruz’s “despicable” and silly defense against Trump’s baseless election challenge. It’s an empty crusade that Cruz, although the president called his wife ugly and accused his father of being involved in JFK’s assassination, moved all in – probably in the cynical hope that he might one day become. the candidate representing MAGA on the side of the Republican Party in 2024.
And on Wednesday night, after President Trump instigated a treacherous assault on Capitol Hill, in which his supporters effectively held the halls of Congress hostage for a number of hours as backup police and the National Guard were nowhere to be found, Kimmel turned to the anarchic insurrection.
“Thank you for joining us for the Donald Trump Era Betrayal Finale. It was one of those days that I always thought was behind us. It’s not the sort of thing I imagined happening in this country in my lifetime, ”Kimmel said.
He continued, “The President of the United States, because he’s too angry, too uncertain and too incompetent to deal with the fact that he lost an election – a fair election; an election that was no different from any other election; an election he lost has 7 million votes and 70 voters – turns a mob in anger at members of Congress and his own vice president, not to mention endangering the Capitol Police, those blue lives that ‘he claims matter so much to him.
Calling him “Benedict Arnold,” Kimmel went to the rally Trump spoke to earlier today, where he launched the assault on the U.S. Capitol, telling his loyal MAGA leaders, “And after that, we’re going walk over there, and I’ll be there with you, we’ll go down … to Capitol Hill and cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women … and we’re probably not going to clap that much for some of them. Because you will never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and be strong. “(Parts of the Trump rally crowd later invaded the Capitol.)
“His speech was historic: never before have so many people gathered to watch a president masturbate,” Kimmel joked.
He then focused his attention on the others who made it possible to storm the Capitol. “The police were very relaxed about the Black Lives Matter protests. Some have been seen taking selfies with the criminals; others seemed to welcome them through the doors. It was a terrible day in the history of this country, ”Kimmel said. “Our president and the bastards who kept this stolen election masquerade going – and it’s you Josh Hawley, it’s you Ted Cruz – intentionally or just irresponsibly started these fires to start a war just to distract us.” of the fact that Donald Trump lost the election. ”
“Ted Cruz, this guy doesn’t even believe the election was stolen,” he added. “He knows better than that. He is so hungry for political power. He is so desperate to be loved and supported by these crazy people who think Joe Biden is a Chinese agent and Satan tries to force them to wear masks at the mall so that one day he can be president he is ready to launch the dice on a civilian. war.”
He concluded: “These people are not Americans. There is no “we the people”. There is “me the people”. “
