Kimmel Flings Gay Barbs At Santorum, Gingrich At White House Correspondents Dinner

At the White House Correspondents Dinner last night in Washington, DC, host Jimmy Kimmel took some gay-friendly potshots at former GOP presidential contenders Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

Addressing Santorum’s opposition to marriage equality, Kimmel said, “it’s one thing to oppose gay marriage. It’s another all together to do it in a sweater vest.”

Kimmel teased Gingrich—the infamous serial adulterer who also opposed same-sex unions—about his weight: “How can you be against gay marriage when you yourself are the son of two gay parents? The Michelin [Man] and the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.”

The late-night talk-show host admitted he’s stumped why anyone would be against marriage equality, saying all marriages are essentially gay. “As a man, when you get married essentially what you’re saying is, “I will never touch another woman as long as I live. Now let’s put jewelry on each other and dance.’”

Even President Obama got in on the act when addressing his Administration’s work on repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell: “In my second term, we will replace it with a policy known as ‘It’s Raining Men.’”

      Yeh, Obama’s “gay joke” was so funny I forgot to laugh. In this joke by Obama, “Jimmy got his start years ago on ‘The Man Show’. In Washington, that’s what we call a congressional hearing on contraception,” he perfectly [and fairly] mocks sexist male Repugs, while in the one about DADT/”It’s Raining Men GAYS are the butt [pun intended] of the joke.

      Imagine this scenario:

      It’s 1966, and President Johnson is addressing a major dinner. He says:

      “In my first term, we passed the 1964 and 1965 Civil Rights Acts. I guess that makes this The Year of the Watermelon!”

      Who’s laughing now?

      @Michael Bedwell: Oh, grow a sense of humor. Everyone has such thin skin, nowadays…this is exactly why Washington gets nothing done. Everyone is too busy catering to the PC whiners who need their feelings coddled.

      It was a funny joke, playing off of stereotypes, coming from the mouth of a man who has. Een the butt of more than a few malicious stereotypes himself. His tone was light, playful and wry, much like at any roast, and the intent was clearly not to insult or demean.

      Get. Over. Yourself.

      @Josh in OR:

      “OR”? Is that the abbreviation for “Head Up Obama’s Ass”? What’s the Zip Code? 00000?

      If an pro DADT Repig like John McShame had said it, people would be up in arms. But Your Lord & Savior Obama Christ can DO NO WRONG.

      Grow. Up. And. Grow. A. Pair.

      Michael Bedwell is a known Clinton apologist that is still distraught about Hillary losing the primaries to Obama back in 08. Poor soul, ignore him while he still grieves.

      I don’t know who wrote President Obama’s jokes, but I laughed out loud alot. The video about Romney’s dog and Obama’s was hilarious. I loved the “It’s raining men” joke. Michelle looked F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S! Great White House Correspondents’ Dinner 2012.

      Obama’s “raining men” joke sounded like it was written by one of his gay staff people…

      If Hillary Clinton made the same joke, you’d all be gushing about how funny it is and how cool Hillary is and you’d be posting about it online along with photos of her in sunglasses…Seriously.

      I like Jimmy Kimmel, but I didn’t think he was all that funny at the correspondents dinner. Wanda Sykes was so much better.
