Candace Owens Insists Jimmy Kimmel ‘Single-Handedly’ Ruined Late Night TV

Turning Point USA’s Candace Owens took late-night host Jimmy Kimmel to task on Saturday for using his kid as a prop and ruining late-night television.

Speaking with Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News, Owens said this in response to a clip of Kimmel saying he’d rather have a chimp for president than Donald Trump:

“I would rather we had a comedian for a late night talk show rather than Jimmy Kimmel who gets up there every single night, cries, brings up his child, uses his child as a prop to get other people to cry. So look, we don’t always get what we want, Jimmy.”

Then she added this: “He single-handedly, he single-handedly ruined late-night TV. I really do believe Jimmy Kimmel does this. He somehow thinks he’s like a political spokesperson. He tries to be funny. It’s never funny. I think that has to be a fake audience. I don’t get it whatsoever… Good for you, Jimmy, keep it going.”
