Caitlyn Jenner’s latest interview has caused quite a stir.
Last week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, the host took the reality star and candidate for California governor to task for her sit-down with Fox News’ Sean Hannity this week.
Kimmel described “what they called a town hall with Sean Hannity. There was no town, and no hall, but there was Sean Hannity pretending to be interested in Caitlyn’s take on a variety of subjects, including her inexplicable affection for Donald Trump.”
During the interview, Jenner said that Trump “did some things that I agreed with, some things I didn’t agree with,” and added that she appreciated that the former U.S. president was a “disruptor” who “came in and shook the system up.”
“He shook the system so hard he lost custody of it,” Kimmel joked. “Child protective services had to come in and stop him from shaking the system.”
The host also slammed Jenner for her comments about homelessness, in which she referenced another person at her private plane hangar, saying they were moving to Arizona because they see too many homeless in California.
“Ah, homeless people, can’t walk around ‘em, can’t fly over ‘em,” Kimmel said. “Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole? Or does calling that trans person an ignorant a-hole even though she happens to be a trans person show that we don’t discriminate against ignorant a-holes… it’s a tough one, I don’t know. I guess we’ll let the internet decide tomorrow.”
On Monday, Hannity hit back at Kimmel over his comments about the interview with Jenner.
“Jimmy, what is with all the anger and all the cheap shots?” the Fox News host said. “Yeah, in case you haven’t noticed, homeless people are all over your state. And by the way, don’t you have anything better to do? Maybe actually trying to be funny or boost your dismal ratings?
“Let’s remind people, take a trip down memory lane. You wanna talk about ignorant a**holes? This is you dressed as Karl Malone. And check this out: This is you, an ignorant a**hole, when you had a cucumber in your pants during ‘The Man Show’. Maybe your bosses at Disney can talk you out of your bad behaviour.”
