Jimmy Kimmel Live Recuts CNBC GOP Debate Into an Episode of The View


Sometimes Jimmy Kimmel Live gets it wrong, but when the show gets it right — oh boy, do they get it right. Like when host Jimmy Kimmel presented a clip from the CNBC Republican debate edited to look and sound like an episode of The View.

“There were some moments where the discussion got out of hand. With 10 candidates on the stage it’s hard to speak, and everyone’s trying to jam a word in,” said the talk show host. “At a certain point, I didn’t know if I was watching a debate or The View.”

The clip itself, which doesn’t last more that 40 seconds, was compiled with visual and sound bites of almost all of the 10 Republican presidential candidates talking, shouting, interrupting one another and — on occasion — coughing into the still-turned-on microphones.

You’re probably thinking, “Wait a minute Jimmy. Are you saying that the debate was more like a bunch of women sitting on a couch, arguing with and talking over one another? What are you trying to say about women?”

That’s a good question, no doubt, but when The View gets into scuffles over Carly Fiorina‘s Halloween mask of a face and the inevitable backlash such hypocritical comments will generate, one can’t fault Kimmel too much for the implied commentary.

Besides, the show closed out the segment with an amazingly-edited shot of Donald Trump firing off a six shooter into the air to quell the debate. How could anyone be mad about that?
