Jimmy Kimmel famously said, “not good riddance, but riddance,” to Republican viewers who might be burned by his hard-left monologues.
Greg Gutfeld’s reaction? “Why would you do that?”
The right-leaning comic enters Kimmel’s late-night realm this week with a decidedly different approach.
No one expects the Fox News mainstay to push progressive talking points on “Gutfeld!” which debuts at 11 p.m. EST April 5. He’s still not going to mock the half of the country marinating in the progressive yuks delivered by Kimmel, Stephen Colbert and their far-left chums.
“Democrats tend to target groups. It’s not just Trump, it’s Trump voters or those stupid Republicans and gun nuts,” Gutfeld says. He has no issue mocking President Joe Biden, Sen. Chuck Schumer or other progressive leaders. He’s not gunning for their voters, though.
“It’s off limits,” Gutfeld says. “You don’t punch down, go after groups of everyday Americans. You understand there’s a variety among groups. Even within groups there are vast differences between them.”
