With Jimmy Kimmel headlining the White House Correspondents’ Dinner this weekend, Politico‘s Patrick Gavin recently sat down with the late night talk show host in Los Angeles. The pub released a snippet of the interview today in which Gavin asked Kimmel to weigh in on Louis C.K. dropping out of the upcoming Radio & TV Correspondents’ dinner after FNC’s Greta Van Susteren threatened to boycott it. Van Susteren piped up against him because of comments he has made about women, specifically using the c-word when referring to former Veep hopeful Sarah Palin. She called him a “pig.” Was Kimmel worried?
Let’s just say there were a couple of bleeps in Kimmel’s thoughts on the matter. “I don’t really care, fuck them. I don’t give a shit!” he said. Coming up: the full interview gets released tomorrow. The interview was shot by Alex Trowbridge, who traveled to LA with Gavin and photog Jay Westcott.
