Jimmy Kimmel’s been on a tear lately with his righteous outrage, first about health care and then about guns. So the news about Harvey Weinstein being a serial sexual predator should’ve sent him over the edge, right?
Well, guess what: It didn’t.

I'll bet Jimmy Kimmel's take on Harvey #Weinstein last night was just lit.
*Gets tap on the shoulder*
Oh, never mind.

Crying is 70% of Kimmel’s act now and he couldn’t spare a tear for Weinstein’s victims? https://t.co/0MEbDlv0hP

In fact, it wasn’t just Jimmy who suddenly decided to clam up; it was all his self-righteous late-night buddies.
After Harvey Weinstein Scandal, Late Night Hosts Come up Dry https://t.co/Z6OzMnzixr

More from Grabien:
One might think that after one of the biggest names in Hollywood — someone who’s made a name for himself working alongside progressive and feminist causes — was shockingly revealed as having covered up decades of sexual abuse, America’s late-night hosts would have a field day.
Instead, Jimmy Fallon, Trevor Noah, Conan O’Brien, Seth Meyers, Jimmy Kimmel, and Stephen Colbert came up … dry.
The only mention of Harvey Weinstein on all of the late-night shows combined came on “The Daily Show,” during a segment on Cam Newton. The “joke,” featured above, was literally nothing more than Noah pretending to be Cam Newton and saying to reporters at a press conference, “Look, Harvey Weinstein!”
Of course, these guys all had a field day with Donald Trump, Bill O’Reilly, and Roger Ailes. It’s almost as if their capacity for outrage and mockery is contingent on politics.
It's almost like those late-night hosts are actually Democrat stooges. https://t.co/X48VKx5acp

Hey, even “America’s Conscience” needs a night off, right?
