Jimmy Kimmel jabs Obama/Holder over Fast and Furious; most of D.C. media/Hollywood celebs scratch heads

Yes, Virginia, someone in liberal Hollywood finally found the balls to bring up Barack Obama’s bloodiest scandal.

Comedian Jimmy Kimmel made reference to the deadly “Fast and Furious” White House/DOJ gun-walking scandal at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night. Most of the D.C. media and Hollywood types, of course, a) cringed; b) shrugged their shoulders; or c) scratched their heads in abject, willful ignorance.

C-SPAN cameras did not share President Obama or First Lady Michelle Obama’s reactions. Attorney General Eric Holder was nowhere to be seen:

Watch Kimmel’s full monologue. Fast & Furious jibe is at 4:00 in the video:

    I watched it, and was suprised at some of the jabs Jimmy took at OhBummer and his henchmen. He actually got some pretty funny ones in there, he had a few misfires, but overall I was pleasantly surprised.

    I think it is really something that Obama told a joke about the sad state of the economy . . . What? He didn’t tell a joke about the biggest joke in the country?

    I’m frankly astonished he made as many, honest, “it’s funny ‘cuz it’s true” jabs as he did.
    That being said, I don’t understand why an event like this even exists. How did it even start? What a waste of time.

      Like typical awards shows, it’s for fellow travelers to pat themselves on the back as they all sing from the same hymnal.

    Is Michael Moore going add a “how dare you Mr. President” monologue about Fast and Furious to a gathering of Hollywood types?  No?  Thought so. 

    How about apologizing for the dead border patrol agent and  a fund raiser for his family?  No?  How about a mention for all of the dead Mexicans bringing shame to this president and his officals because of this?  Silence again.

    Yeah, FAST AND FURIOUS is a real joke.  An American border patrol agent was killed with one of these guns.  STILL FUNNY?  If a spotted Owl or an endangered fish were killed it wouldn’t by funny in Demo land.  The biggest straw purchase in the history of this country and still nobody is jailed.  I wonder why?

      And well over 300 Mexicans.

    If you are a democrat, you’ve made a lifestyle of pretense anyway.

    I heard that Obama was seriously injured this morning while chasing cars on Pennsylvania Ave. Please keep us updated.

    It isn’t just Hollywood; more than half of ignorant American voters don’t have a clue as to what “Fast and Furious” is.  Thank you Main Stream Media Traitors and scum.

    Well, one of the reasons Kimmel hit both sides was the legacy of other liberal comics, who had been too obsequious and partisan. One called Rush a “traitor” back in ’09. It’s rough out there.
