Late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel caused quite a bit of a stir over a comment he made regarding conservatives’ intelligence.
It’s no secret that there are more liberal talk show hosts than conservatives. During an appearance at a “Pod Save America” event, Kimmel reportedly had a clear explanation for why.
“It just so happens that almost every talk show host is a liberal, and that’s because it requires a level of intelligence,” he said, according to a tweet from the event.
After seeing the tweet, conservative commentator Ben Shapiro quipped:
Careers that ooze intelligence:
3. Rocket scientist
1. Late night host who says funny things writers write for him
Shapiro wasn’t the only one to take issue with the assertion. According to the Daily Caller, a few other political commenters made their displeasure known.
