Kimmel’s ‘F–k Them’ Moment in Politico

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.
