#QuickTake: Hollywood Bozo Jimmy Kimmel Calls EPA Pick Scott Pruitt “A Piece of S**t”

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel engaged in some cyber bullying of his own on Wednesday when he called Trump's EPA pick a "piece of s***"

In a tweet Wednesday afternoon, ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel called President-elect Donald Trump’s pick to head the EPA, Scott Pruitt, a “piece of s**t.”

Kimmel’s tweet linked to an online petition opposing Pruitt’s nomination for environmental reasons. The petition was organized by American Rivers, an organization that claims to protect the environmental integrity of the country’s rivers.

Kimmel’s tweet was the latest in a series of Hollywood freak-outs after Trump’s electoral victory in the 2016 presidential election. Instead of hearing the message that the American electorate tried to send in the election, elites have doubled-down on their privilege and condescension.

In recent weeks, actress Meryl Streep and Avengers director Joss Whedon threw their own celebrity tantrums.

After receiving a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes, Streep gave a 6 minute speech in which she criticized Trump and those who elected him. She went on to praise Hollywood and the media.

Meanwhile, Whedon shared a sexist image on Twitter, depicting actress Nicole Kidman as a plastic puppet of Trump’s after the actress had the audacity to say the president deserves the support of the country.

Kidman said in a recent interview with BBC that Trump is “now elected and we as a country need to support whoever’s the President because that’s what the country’s based on.”
