Kimmel Rips Bill De Blasio For Not Cheering on Yankees: ‘Might Be The Stupidest F**king Thing I’ve Ever Heard’

On Thursday night, Jimmy Kimmel kicked off his fourth show in Brooklyn by slamming NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for not cheering on the New York Yankees during the playoffs.

“What’s the deal with your mayor?” Kimmel began. “Is there something wrong with this brain?”

He then played a news clip that explained that De Blasio is “such a die-hard Red Sox fan” that it’d be “physically impossible” for him to cheer on the Yankees as they are just a game away from being in the World Series.

The crowd erupted in boos.

“I mean I give him credit for honesty,” Kimmel reacted, “but that might be the stupidest f**king thing I’ve ever heard anybody say.”

He apologized for the profanity.

“You guys voted for a Red Sox fan?” Kimmel asked the Brooklyn crowd. “It’s like I don’t even know you anymore.”

Kimmel then congratulated De Blasio on his “final term as mayor of the city of New York.”
