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.
