Some people literally can’t take a joke. Like Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, everyone’s favorite whack-a-doodle on Capitol Hill. The Republican gun nut and Freedom Caucus member was recently the subject of a Jimmy Kimmel bit – and was so mad about it, she reported Kimmel to the Capitol Police.
MTG, who has represented Georgia’s 14th congressional district since 2021, started this whole ordeal when she tweeted that GOP Sens. Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins and Mitt Romney were “pro-pedophile” because they planned to vote Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson onto the Supreme Court.
1. Any Senator voting to confirm #KJB is pro-pedophile just like she is.
There are MANY more qualified black women judges, that actually can define what a woman is, but Biden chose the one that protects evil child predators.
And then Romney, Murkowski, and Collins vote for her.

Her comments were in reference to fellow Republicans’ claims that Jackson had previously been lenient on sex offenders.
Kimmel flashed one of MTG’s “pro-pedophile” tweets on his show.
“Wow, where is Will Smith when you really need him,” he then joked.
That’s it. That’s all he said.
And yet, even a hint of inferred violence was enough to get Karen all riled up.
“.@ABC, this threat of violence against me by @jimmykimmel has been filed with the @CapitolPolice,” MTG tweeted.

Kimmel, ever the clever comedian, retweeted MTG and added, “Officer? I would like to report a joke.”

But if you thought that shut her up, well, no. This loudmouth has no mute button.
“You weren’t joking. You hide your misogyny and your racism behind your “jokes” on @ABC,” MTG tweeted. “This was a dog whistle to the violent left to assault me or worse, and your already inspiring fantasies of violence against me. How many new death threats will I get that are your fans?”

And on and on and on. Unfortunately, even if Will Smith and his slaps were available on-demand, we don’t think that’d be enough to stop MTG’s squawking. Who’s the snowflake now?
