Late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel is furious with New York Jets Quarterback Aaron Rodgers who seemingly made the insinuation that the former host of “The Man Show” is one of the celebrities featured on the client list of the notorious pedophile and human trafficker Jeffrey Epstein. In fact, he was so livid with Rodgers he threatened to file a lawsuit against him. My, my. Somebody has a temper. How many times has he made these kind of sick and twisted jokes about Trump or his supporters?
I mean, maybe not about Epstein, but certainly other kinds of twisted activities. It’s perfectly fine for someone like Kimmel to say nasty things about conservatives, but no conservative has the right to crack a joke or make a comment about him. Funny how that works.

The controversy started when Rodgers, 40, made an appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show” on Tuesday. He was discussing what names might come up on Epstein’s list of associates, which could be released as early as January 22.
“There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, really hoping that doesn’t come out,” the NFL star went on to say during the show, going on to add, “I’ll tell you what, if that list comes out, I definitely will be popping some sort of bottle.”
Kimmel responded with an X post. The late-night host assured fans that there was no way that his name was among the 150 rumored to be on the list, claiming Rodgers had endangered his family by suggesting he was.
Dear Aasshole: for the record, I’ve not met, flown with, visited, or had any contact whatsoever with Epstein, nor will you find my name on any “list” other than the clearly-phony nonsense that soft-brained wackos like yourself can’t seem to distinguish from reality.

“Dear A**hole: for the record, I’ve not met, flown with, visited, or had any contact whatsoever with Epstein, nor will you find my name on any ‘list’ other than the clearly-phony nonsense that soft-brained wackos like yourself can’t seem to distinguish from reality. Your reckless words put my family in danger. Keep it up and we will debate the facts further in court,” Kimmel published.
Last March, Kimmel mocked Rodgers for speculating about the Epstein client list, seeming to indicate that believing there was a list was a conspiracy theory.
At the time, during Rodgers appearance on the “Pat McAfee Show,” the quarterback said, “Did you hear about the Epstein client list about to be released? There’s some files that have some names on it that might be getting released pretty soon.”
The late night host had played a clip from that specific interaction, cracking his idea of a joke by saying, “it might be time to revisit the concussion protocol, Aaron,” before going on to slam him as a “tin-foil hatter.”
In December, a federal judge ordered that documents containing some of the known associates of the now deceased billionaire trafficker must be released this year. The documents in question are from a civil trial dating back to 2017 that was filed by Virginia Giuffre. Giuffre made the claim that Epstein’s girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, was responsible for trafficking her.
Loretta Preska, a judge connected to the case, has provided the individuals on the list with 14 days to object to the release of their names.
The fact Kimmel is getting so upset over this is a little suspicious. If this were truly absurd, he would laugh it off and not worry about it. I mean, it’s not hard to imagine Kimmel being part of something so illegal and trashy. Go look back at his time hosting “The Man Show” in the late 1990s. He was a pretty big creep at the time.
