Jimmy Kimmel Announces He's Running for Vice President of the U.S.

Okay, so maybe Jimmy Kimmel wasn’t a poli-sci major. Thursday, the late-night talk show host announced his candidacy for vice president — even though he doesn’t have a running mate in the POTUS race.

If elected, “I will never stop fighting for you,” he said, kicking off his campaign with a speech on Hollywood Boulevard. “Unless Game of Thrones is on. In which case, I will stop fighting for an hour, or slightly more, depending how many times I have to rewind to figure out what’s going on.”

What is Kimmel’s platform? Likely, he’ll discuss it Monday when he serves as Kelly Ripa‘s first Live! guest co-host after Michael Strahan’s swan song, and pays a visit to The View. He’s sure to then elaborate during his set at ABC’s Upfront presentation Tuesday.

Would Kimmel get your vote (assuming it were even possible to just vote for the VP)? Press PLAY on the video above to check out his speech, then cast your ballot in the comments.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Please tell me this is a joke. A very bad, disturbing joke. It really wasn’t clear from the article

    Kimmel is a political fool who actually believes the SUV he is riding in anyway is killing Gaia. But then, the maroon we have now as VP believes that nonsense too, so I guess he would fit right in.

      You need to go over to Breitbart News for these kinds of posts. Huffington Post at the very least.

    He would get my vote, but not with the Dump.

    And don’t forget – he will be in Howard Stern Monday morning! The best interviews out there.

    Running for Vice President? Sorry Jimmy, you don’t get to run for Vice President in a Presidential Election, the Vice President is the pick of the Presidential Nominee or the Delegates @ Convention.



  7. Cedrik Thibert says:

    HE could if there was a ‘Vice Presidential’ Nomination race, but there isn’t.

  8. Cedrik Thibert says:

    Jimmy, nobody wants to be number 2.

    Nobody wants to get the Silver medal because you just lost the Gold Medal!

    Being number is the bad spot, you are close of winning but you are not the winner.

    So it doesn’t count, being Vice President is nothing when you could be President instead!

    I’m not voting for anyone who has a bunch of black smudge all over his face. He looks homeless. Take the time to shave and we’ll talk about my vote.
