Jimmy Kimmel Takes Political Shots at Emmys

Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel took some political shots last night during his opening monologue.

Of Mitt Romney:

“TV is an American institution, and yet, one out of every five nominees tonight is British. I will admit that ‘Downton Abbey’ is an amazing show, there’s so much meticulous attention to detail,” Kimmel said. “It really gives you a sense of what it must have been like to grow up in Mitt Romney’s house.”

“Are any of you voting for Mitt Romney?” Kimmel asked, as a few people in the audience cheered. “Alright, 40 Republicans,” Kimmel joked in response. “Being a Republican in Hollywood is like being a Chick-Fil-A sandwich on the snack table at ‘Glee.'”

Of President Obama:

“Does it bother anyone else that President Obama said his favorite show is ‘Homeland’? I don’t think the president should be watching ‘Homeland’ for the same reason I don’t think Charlie Sheen should watch ‘Breaking Bad,'” Kimmel joked.

  1. “as a few people in the audience cheered.” ? Biased much? Most cheered, and his follow up joke was a fail because of this!
