Liberal comedian Jimmy Kimmel attacked Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., Thursday as a token for the Republican Party, mocking him as being forced to “let the American people know the Republican Party isn’t racist.”
“An amazing thing happened after the speech,” Kimmel said Thursday. “Every Black Republican Senator got together to let the American people know the Republican Party isn’t racist.”
Kimmel then played a clip of Scott’s response to President Biden’s congressional address where he declared the country — not the Republican Party alone — was not racist. Although that’s a sentiment that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have repeated this week, albeit with caveats, Scott’s remark drew howls of outrage on the left.
dude just apologized for wearing blackface, now joining in on the attacks on a black SC senator as a race-traitor, and folks if that doesn't sum up the American discourse on race nothing does https://t.co/QnZZIuhh6K

“Then Tim promptly returned to the sensory deprivation egg he calls home,” Kimmel joked.
