Why are so many late-night talk-show hosts liberal? Just ask Jimmy Kimmel.
“Because it requires a level of intelligence,” Kimmel, host of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” told an audience Saturday night. The occasion was an episode of “Pod Save America,” an openly progressive podcast created by former Obama administration officials Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett and Daniel Pfeiffer.
It describes itself as “a no-bulls--- conversation about politics that breaks down the week’s news and helps people figure out what matters and how to help.”
Social media users quickly jumped to criticize Kimmel for equating conservative politics with a lack of intelligence.
