Jimmy Kimmel Live put together another montage of clips of 700 Club host Pat Robertson‘s random musings for the latest edition of the show’s recurring segment, “The Collected Wisdom of Pat Robertson.” This time, however, late night host Jimmy Kimmel made sure to emphasize how much America needs Robertson’s wisdom in the presidential arena — especially since the media mogul and former Baptist minister once ran for president in 1988.
“He’s hosted [The 700 Club] for 43 years — since 1972,” Kimmel Joked. “Pat has shared so much insight into the human condition, you almost wish he was running today.”
So what particular knowledge bombs did Kimmel’s staff decide to focus on this time around? Instead of focusing on his recent comments on failing markets being God’s punishment, or whether or not Kim Davis is really the hero American evangelicals need right now, they decided to go with vegetables. Lots and lots of vegetables.
“Marijuana is a vegetable.” “Cocaine is a product of a vegetable.” “Alcohol is a product of a vegetable.” “People are enslaved to vegetables!”
Sure, Robertson also discusses women as “objects,” the need to arrest prostitutes, quotes like “let the pimps go free,” and other lovely topics. (Including his uttering the word “whips,” which is frightening.) But vegetables? They’re the real problem, and considering both the Republican and Democratic parties’ reluctance to address this important issue, I think Robertson should run for president in 2016.
