Roy Moore Picked A Twitter Fight With Jimmy Kimmel And We’re Here For It

2017 has been a weird year like no other, the kind of year that changes people. Jimmy Kimmel has hosted his ABC talk show since 2003, and has position himself as a wry, Letterman-esque, anything for a joke comedian. Who knew that he’d turn out to be the new Jon Stewart? After he had a new baby born with medical difficulties, he tearfully and brutally argued against the GOP’s failed Obamacare reform gambit, helping to influence public opinion in the matter.

His jokes have gotten more political and fearless, and he’s become Republican Party enemy #1. Fanning the flames: He sent comedian Tony Barbieri to crash a campaign rally being held for Alabama Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore. Roy Moore, you know, the guy who stalked teenage girls in shopping malls and then also assaulted them.

Moore continues to deny the many, many things that many, many women said he did to them, saying it’s all lies brought about by a conspiracy of socialists and gays. Once he found out who the gatecrasher represented, Moore got on Twitter on Thursday and basically challenged Kimmel to a good old fashioned fist fight.

“If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man.”

Evidently preying on young girls and threatening to beat up strangers are Christian values? Nevertheless, never challenge a comedian to a war of words…because they will win. Words are kind of their king. Kimmel stood up to the challenge.

Sounds great Roy – let me know when you get some Christian values and I’ll be there!

Things escalated. Quickly. Moore claimed persecution; Kimmel went after Moore’s affinity for young girls and his weird sartorial choices.

Despite D.C. and Hollywood Elites’ bigotry toward southerners, Jimmy, we’ll save you a seat on the front pew.

OK Roy, but I’m leaving my daughters at home! P.S. – wear that cute little leather vest.

It’s also not wise to pick a fight with someone who has a nationally-televised TV show.

Some highlights: Kimmel said he was willing to meet with Moore down in Alabama, either to talk out their disagreement…or as Moore said, settle things like men, with fists. Then Kimmel couldn’t help but get in another dig online early this morning.
