Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘deplorable’ post-Great Debate opinion sampler

Jimmy Kimmel’s ‘deplorable’ post-Great Debate opinion sampler

Comic late-night host’s hilarious (and predictable) man-on-the-street interviews amply illustrate why hope and change have got up and gone. So who are the real "deplorables"?

Jimmy Kimmel presents genuinely insightful commentary from TV's real opinion makers. (Screen grab of ABC-TV video clip)

WASHINGTON, September 28, 2016 – Whatever your opinion on who won, lost or tied Monday’s political slugfest—Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton or Lester Holt—The Great Election 2016 Debate, Season 1: Episode 1 is now history.

Fortuitously, ABC’s late night host Jimmy Kimmel decided to wrap up Monday’s action with the following “Man on the Street” YouTube clip, which features spontaneous, post-debate commentary by real people (not actors) who, God forbid, may actually be voting this November.

To tell the truth, Kimmel’s everyday worker-bee pundits tell us far more about the current state of American affairs than all the overpaid and under-informed bloviators gasbagging nightly on network snooze shows and cable TV.

Hat tip to my former Washington Times colleague, Christian Toto, for the find.

Enjoy. Or make an appointment with your therapist.

(And don’t forget to petition Jimmy to bring back Adam Carolla and “The Man Show.”)
