On Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel considers a “funny scenario” that develops in Ohio’s GOP Senate race, where the Trump supporter is avid and the guy likes Palling around with QAnon nutjobs Josh Mandel is fighting against J.D. Vance, a critic of former President Donald Trump who wrote a book that was turned into a movie. one of the worst movies in recent memory.
Mandel has earned the endorsement of Club for Growth, a strongly conservative organization with its own super PAC that sounds as awful as a hair growth product. Club for Development was very critical of Trump during the 2016 election — and endorsed Ted Cruz — before backing a bid for reelection in 2020. The group ran offensive ads against Vance citing Vance. cited his anti-Trump statements, which included: “I’m a guy who was never Trump — I never liked him,” “I find him to be reprehensible,” “an idiot,” and” toxic “.
“Yes that’s right. Right? Is that wrong?” Kimmel snapped, adding, “Then JD smelled the wind that way the way the bonnet is Republican today and he changed his tune. Suddenly, he decided not only was Trump not ‘malicious’ and ‘reproachable’, he was now the greatest president of his life and JD’s previous opinions, he say, is stupid. “
Yes, Vance — who is dressing up as a populist in time accept millions of dollars in support from right-wing billionaire Peter Thiel — has since reversed course and jumped on the Trump Train, addressing his anti-Trump claims during a recent GOP Ohio Senate debate by saying, “All We all say stupid things, and I happen to say stupid things very openly.”
“This is truly a great qualification for a future senator. “Vote for me — I say stupid things very openly,” Kimmel joked.
“But guess what? It worked,” he continued. “Trump actually endorsed JD who called him an idiot, which puts Clubs for Development in the hilarious position of getting mad at Trump for endorsing a no-nonsense candidate. Trump-friendly enough. It’s an ‘I hate Mexicans’ stalemate. “
With that, he threw to a club a recent ad for Growth expressing embarrassment that Trump had endorsed Vance despite his anti-Trump claims. Winner all around.
