The longtime late night host and former host of Comedy Central’s The Man Show (how times have changed) went off on Aaron Rodgers again in his return to late night in the new year, calling him Karen Rodgers (good one) and, in general, making fun of him for being a conspiracy theorist, anti-vaxxer.
Last week, Aaron Rodgers stirred the conspiracy theory pot once again while on The Pat McAfee Show, claiming once again that he believed Jimmy Kimmel would be “nervous” when the Jeffrey Epstein list that was coming out.
He told McAfee and the boys:
“That’s supposed to be coming out soon… There’s a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel that are really hoping that doesn’t come out.”

Of course, many took that to mean that he was on it, but there’s a number of reasons why Kimmel could be nervous… Aaron will elaborate (maybe) on The Pat McAfee Show today.
Last year, Kimmel called out the Jets quarterback’s obsession with the Epstein files, and also made fun of him over the Packers “immunization controversy” of the 2021 season… which is where this beef began.

The “comedian” didn’t take the accusations lightly, and even threatened to sue the quarterback.
Kimmel tweeted out after Rodgers’ statements on McAfee:
“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.
Your reckless words put my family in danger. Keep it up and we will debate the facts further in court.”

Of course, the Epstein court documents were released and Kimmel was not implicated in the initial batch.
Kimmel decided to take full advantage of this on his show last night, and went on a seven-minute long rant about the Hall of Fame QB:
“When you hear a guy who won a Super Bowl and did all the State Farm commercials say something like this, a lot of people believe it.
A lot of delusional people honestly believe I’m meeting up with Tom Hanks and Oprah’s at Shakey’s once a week to eat pizza and drink the blood of children.
And I know this because I hear from these people often. My wife hears from them, my kids hear from them, my poor mailman hears from these people, and now we’re hearing from lots more of them thanks to Aaron Rodgers, who I guess believes one of two things: either he actually believes my name was gonna be on Epstein’s list, or the more likely scenario is he doesn’t believe that he just said it because he’s mad at me for making fun of his top knot and his lies about being vaccinated…
He floated these wacko ideas that these UFO sightings that were back in the news in February were being reported to distract us from the Epstein list.”
And of course, it didn’t stop there. Kimmel continued:
“(Rodgers) has a very high opinion of himself because he had success on the football field, he believes himself to be a extraordinary being. He genuinely thinks that because God gave him the ability to throw a ball he’s smarter than everybody else.
The fact that his brain is just average is unfathomable to him. We learned during COVID that somehow he knows more about science than scientists. A guy who went to community college, then got into Cal on a football scholarship and didn’t graduate, someone who never spent a minute studying the human body, is an expert in the field of immunology.
He just put on a magic helmet and that G made him a genius. Aaron got two A’s on his report card and they were both in the word ‘Aaron.’ And can you imagine that this hamster brain man thinks he knows what the government is up to because he’s a quarterback doing research on YouTube and listening to podcasts.”
He went on to say that all his “jokes” are fact-checked and rooted in truth, but let’s be honest, he just regurgitates the same left-wing talking points that most of the unfunny late night shows do. And we all know how honest the mainstream media is…
