Jimmy Kimmel Spots Most Cringeworthy MAGA Moment Yet From ‘Trumpy Dopes’
Who is Jimmy Kimmel?
Jimmy Kimmel is a popular American television host, comedian, and writer. He is best known for hosting his own late-night talk show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” on ABC.
‘Trumpy Dopes’ and MAGA
MAGA, or Make America Great Again, is a slogan popularized by former United States President Donald Trump. It became a rallying cry for his supporters during his 2016 presidential campaign and beyond. “Trumpy Dopes” refers to individuals who support President Trump and his policies.
The Cringeworthy Moment
During a recent episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!”, the host showcased what he deemed to be the most cringeworthy MAGA moment yet — a group of Trump supporters singing a song entitled “The Ballad of the MAGA Kid.”
The song was written in response to an incident in which a group of high schoolers from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky were caught on camera wearing “Make America Great Again” hats and confronting a Native American activist during a protest. The incident sparked controversy and polarized opinions on social media.
The lyrics of “The Ballad of the MAGA Kid” are filled with references to “fake news,” “triggered” liberals, and defending the Second Amendment. Some of the lines include:
– “With his red hat on and his Trump flag high, he stood his ground and he stared them down”
– “The MAGA kid wasn’t gonna take it, he wouldn’t let the left do him in”
– “He said, ‘You can blame it on the media, you can blame it on the left, but when it comes to Covington Catholic, it was a fake news fest!'”
Jimmy Kimmel’s Reaction
Jimmy Kimmel was visibly disgusted by the video of the song, calling it “one of the saddest things I’ve ever seen.” He went on to criticize the individuals in the video, saying, “It just shows you how broken and sad and pathetic politics in this country has become.”
The MAGA movement has sparked many controversies and debates, but this recent “Ballad of the MAGA Kid” video showcased by Jimmy Kimmel has taken things to a new level. The cringeworthy lyrics and execution of the song have left many people shaking their heads in disbelief. It remains to be seen what further controversies and debates will arise from the ever-evolving world of politics and social media.
