On Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel decided to address the elephant in the room: the sexual abuse allegations against Judge Brett Kavanaugh.
During his show, Kimmel made a rather interesting claim.
“I think there’s a compromise here. Hear me out on this," Kimmel told his audience. "So, Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court. Okay. Well, in return we get to cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone."
Kimmel laughed awkwardly before realizing no one found his "joke" to be very funny.

Allapundit at Hot Air said it best:
Kimmel is a professional comedian, supported by a team of writers composed of other professional comedians. And collectively they concluded that a ninth-grade-level half-joke about cutting off the dick of some dude they hate was a solid enough gag to make the cut for a tight 10-minute monologue on broadcast television.
What Kimmel said is not creative or innovative by any means, especially for someone who makes a living off of being a "comedian." Not only that but he is also perpetuating the idea that Kavanaugh is guilty before Dr. Christine Blasey Ford even testifies (assuming she doesn't chicken out).
Apparently America's philosophy of "innocent until proven guilty" has suddenly flipped flopped. Now those who are being accused of committing a heinous act must somehow clear their name.
