Marjorie Taylor Greene called on the Capitol Police after Jimmy Kimmel made threatening statements against her. MTG shouldn’t take the threat lightly; Kimmel shouldn’t take the response lightly either.
Greene tweeted, “@ABC, this threat of violence against me by @jimmykimmel has been filed with the @CapitolPolice.”
Kimmel said that she was “especially upset with three Republican senators who said they’ll vote ‘yes’ on Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, who’s nominated for the Supreme Court.” The comment was referencing a tweet by MTG saying, “Murkowski, Collins and Romney are pro-pedophile. They just voted for #KBJ.”
Jackson’s previous rulings have taken significant time off of sentences in cases involving child sexual abuse; so, MTG isn’t wrong. In one child pornography case, Jackson said, “I don’t find persuasive the government’s arguments concerning why they think that this is a particularly egregious child pornography offense, which means I struggled to find a good reason to impose a sentence that is more severe in this case.”
After criticizing MTG for her comment, Kimmel said, “Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him, huh?” Kimmel was referencing the incident at the Oscars where Will Smith slapped Chris Rock.
A spokesperson for Green spoke to Fox News Digital and said, “On Tuesday night, Jimmy
Kimmel called for violence to be committed against Congresswoman Greene. It will not be tolerated.” The spokeswoman added that Greene’s office “takes all threats of violence towards the congresswoman very seriously.”
