Jimmy Kimmel Mocks Shep Smith’s Fox News Deck: Like When Divorced Guy ‘Goes Nuts at Best Buy’

Jimmy Kimmel has been taking some shots at Fox News lately, and on his show Tuesday night he turned his attention to the brand new “futuristic” Fox News Deck, which Shepard Smith unveiled on Monday. “It looks like what happens when a guy gets divorced and then goes nuts at Best Buy,” Kimmel joked.

Kimmel showed a clip of Smith having trouble “containing his excitement,” with the anchor discussing a tragic accident and the “fun” technology in the same breath. “As a general rule of thumb if you’re a news reporter,” Kimmel advised, “try not to say ‘8 people dead’ and ‘fun’ in the same sentence.”

But Kimmel was particularly “impressed” with one of Smith’s fancy new tools, picking up on a theme seen elsewhere across the internet Monday.
