It would appear that the “free market” might claim yet again another arrogant know-nothing progressive. Comedian and late night host Jimmy Kimmel may indeed be the next delusional progressive to feel the wrath of Middle America, and perhaps, more importantly, the ire of those millions upon millions of “adorable deplorables.”

Much like the 2017 Emmy Awards hosted by another comedic loon Stephen Colbert, the CBS telecast drew only 11.38 million viewers, with a 2.5% rating, which matched last years worst performance, slipping by 11%. Moreover, the Trump bashing by the Hollywood establishment was also responsible for the worst summer box office at the movies in 25-years.

Since Kimmel went on his progressive rant blaming Republican’s, conservatives including Trump supporters for the carnage in Las Vegas, his viewing audience which oddly enough is almost an even mix of progressives and moderates with perhaps a few conservatives sprinkled in, suffered a substantial decline in the ratings.

Unlike Stephen Colbert’s audience which is almost 50% Democrat, with only 17% Republican, Kimmel’s audience is split 34% Democrat, 33% Republican, which no doubt has ABC’s executives staying up well past Kimmel’s show, worrying.

The conservative flight had already begun long before Kimmel went on this latest unhinged rant, during his bluster concerning his personal healthcare issues involving his young son, which saw a 5% drop from his average of 2.04 million viewers.

Obviously, Kimmel is a concerned and loving dad, and when his young son Billy was born with a rare congenital heart defect, Kimmel had the celebrity status and the platform to be heard.

However Kimmel is an entertainer and comedian, not a healthcare policy expert, and after countless misinformed opening monologues on his show “Jimmy Kimmel Live” it was obvious he was having an emotional meltdown on air.

"By the way, before you post a nasty Facebook message saying I’m politicizing my son’s health problems, I want you to know, I am politicizing my son’s health problems." That response during his monologue was apparently intended for the roughly 33% of his viewing audience, which is never a smart idea to attack, simply ask the NFL.

Some folks on Twitter think this approach is all about the dollars. Not so much the sense:

Do you think Kimmel will continue losing the balance of his conservative audience due to his liberal rants?
