ABC late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage on Tuesday and jokingly suggested that his “compromise” to the battle of Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination is to chop off the judge’s “pesky penis,” should he be confirmed.
Kimmel launched into the Kavanaugh rancor midway through his monologue, noting a New Yorker article published over the weekend in which Deborah Ramirez alleged that as a drunken Yale University freshman, Brett Kavanaugh “exposed himself at a drunken dormitory party.” Ramirez claimed she had “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the alleged encounter.
Ramirez’s college best friend also told the paper she “never heard of” the incident in question.
Jimmy Kimmel cut to a clip of Judge Kavanaugh and his wife’s Fox News interview on Monday, in which the Supreme Court nominee called allegations from Christine Blasey Ford false and explained that he was a virgin in high school and college.
“Thank you for admitting that,” Kimmel said in response to the Kavanaugh clip. “He was a virgin until many years after. So if he doesn’t get to be on the Supreme Court, maybe he’ll be The Bachelor.”
Kavanaugh has reportedly produced calendars from 1982, which purportedly prove he was out of town during the time in which Ford says he attempted to grope her at a house party.
“What 17-year-old keeps calendars of his social engagements?” Kimmel asked. “No wonder he was a virgin.”
Kimmel concluded his Kavanaugh monologue with a gruesome suggestion.
“Hear me out on this,” Kimmel began “So Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court, OK? Well, in return we get to cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone.”
Part of the hype of the show’s return is that Barr’s character Roseanne Conner is a Trump supporter and that different members of the family have different political beliefs.
After discussing her brief stint in politics, Barr explained like in the show, there were some people in her family were pro-Hillary and others like herself who were pro-Trump and that there was “a lot of fighting.”
“Weren’t you a friend, like a good friend, of Hillary Clinton‘s at one point?” Kimmel asked.
“Yeah, I was,” Barr responded. “I had some disagreement with her foreign policy.”
“She had one!” Goodman chimed in.
Kimmel said he was “shocked” that for someone as socially liberal as herself would support Donald Trump.
“I’m still the same! You all moved,” Barr shot back. “You all went so f–kin far out, you lost everything. I mean seriously, a lot of your audience, including me… a lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don’t want to see our president fail, you know? Because we don’t want Pence.”
She then pressed Kimmel about whether he wanted the vice president as our president.
“You want Pence for the frickin president?” Bar asked.
“Oh, no,” Kimmel responded.
“Then you zip that f**kin lip!” Barr demanded.
“This is kinda what the show is like, by the way,” Kimmel chuckled.
Barr told Kimmel that one of her daughters was “weeping” after the election and she told her to “just chill!”
“Try to think positive for like why people wanted a change,” Barr elaborated. “It’s up to the people, here’s my two cents damn it, it’s up to us to make this government work, no matter who’s president. It’s up to us to do our jobs as citizens and if we don’t like something, you know, let them know you don’t like it and then you’ve got another election in two years. Get out there and vote. Change it if you don’t like it.”
