Jimmy Kimmel and S.E. Cupp Are Feuding About Stormy Daniels and Monica Lewinsky


On Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel reacted to S.E. Cupp‘s remarks she made about his interview with Stormy Daniels.

Last week, the conservative HLN host appeared on The View and sparred with Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin about notable comparisons between the porn star for her alleged 2006 affair with Donald Trump and Monica Lewinsky for her affair with Bill Clinton. She then noted that Stormy Daniels was being given a “platform” by appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live and challenged Kimmel to have Lewinsky on as well.

“He needs to have her on his show if he expects us to watch an interview with Stormy Daniels and take it seriously,” Cupp demanded.

Well, Kimmel had a strong defense prepared.

“She’s right. This is yet another example of the biased liberal media refusing to have people like Monica Lewinsky on their shows,” Kimmel sarcastically reacted.

He then played clips from not one, not two, but three separate appearances from Lewinsky on Kimmel’s show.

“Put that in your S.E. Cupp and smoke it,” Kimmel shot back.

Well, Cupp took to Twitter after he made that quip.

“Coming from someone who used to ask women to “put your mouth on it” to guess what was in your pants,” Cupp tweeted, “Congrats on the hard-hitting Stormy Daniels interview. You’re a real champion of women.”

That was a reference to a clip from The Man Show that resurfaced last fall in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal in which Kimmel had women play a game by guessing what object was in his pants by using their hands.

But she wasn’t finished there.

After Kimmel’s segment aired tonight, Mediaite received the following statement from Cupp:

“I pointed out that Jimmy Kimmel chose to give Stormy Daniels a platform after the State of the Union. How easy. I suggested, in this MeToo moment, that giving Monica Lewinsky or Clinton’s other accusers an equal platform might have actually been more impactful, given Democrats unwillingness to reckon with their own skeletons. Kimmel fell for the Democrats playbook, to again turn the table on the accusers and the Conservative women who dared bring them up. You’re so brave, Jimmy.”
