Jimmy Kimmel went on a tirade against Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade Wednesday night, ultimately threatening to “pound” him the next time he saw him.
On Fox News early Wednesday, Kilmeade criticized Kimmel for constantly talking about health care despite running a comedy show. Kimmel got revenge by using his show Wednesday to accuse Kilmeade of being two-faced and a “phony little creep.”
“He follows me on Twitter, he asked me to write a blurb for his book, he calls my agent looking for projects,” Kimmel said of Kilmeade. “He’s dying to be a member of the Hollywood elite. The only reason he’s not a member of the Hollywood elite is nobody will hire him!”
“I don’t get anything out of [talking about health care], Brian, you phony little creep,” Kimmel raged. “Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you.”
The audience loudly cheered when Kimmel threatened to beat up Kilmeade.
Kilmeade responded to Kimmel’s threats on Thursday morning, stating, “I hope your son gets better. I hope your son gets all the care he needs. I’m glad you’re interested, you’re doing a great job bringing the dialogue out. But you should do what we’re doing. Talk to the people that wrote it.”
