Aaron Rodgers Didn't Hold Back One Iota In His Response To Jimmy Kimmel On Pat McAfee's Show Today

Awful Announcing - Aaron Rodgers is attempting to correct the record on what he actually claimed about Jimmy Kimmel after ESPN and Disney were pulled into a media firestorm over his comments on The Pat McAfee Show last week.

While Kimmel responded strongly to Rodgers’ insinuation that he was involved with convicted child trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, this week Rodgers claimed he was not directly accusing Kimmel of the same crime. In his weekly spot on PMS, Rodgers said he was simply calling attention to the issue overall and calling on Kimmel and the audience to pay more attention to it.

“I totally understand how serious an allegation of pedophilia would be,” Rodgers said. “So for him to be upset about that, I get it. Did you watch the quote? Because that’s exactly what I said. Verbatim what I said on the show. I’m not stupid enough, even though you think I’m an idiot … to accuse you of that with absolutely zero concrete evidence. That’s ridiculous.”

Good for Rodgers for not stooping to Kimmel's level here and going the high road. Pretty impressive stuff for a guy who couldn't graduate from community college, and is probably suffering the repercussions of CTE as Kimmel has made it a point to mention about Rodgers.

Just kidding, Aaron did fire away, and banged on the exact points I mentioned in my blog this morning.

Not saying Aaron read my blog and used it for inspiration, but not saying he didn't either.

“I was referring to the fact that if there is a list … and there are names on it, that would be the second time that a soft-brained, junior college student wacko, anti-vax … whatever other things have been said by him and other people in the media, would be right twice,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers also dug in and called out ESPN senior vice president of production (do people realize how ridiculous titles like this are?) Mike Foss. 

While doing cleanup after Rodgers’ comments, ESPN put out a press release attributed to Senior Vice President of Production Mike Foss, who oversees PMS. The release called Rodgers’ words a “dumb and factually inaccurate joke.”

Rodgers took issue with that stance as well, expressing his belief that it was part of ESPN’s efforts to silence him.

“I don’t understand Mike Foss’ comment, because he didn’t help out either,” Rodgers said. “Mike, you’re not helping. Because I just read earlier exactly what I said, and this is the gameplan of the media. This is what they do. They try and cancel, not just me. It’s nowhere near just me if you look at all the people that have been censored from the internet, especially during [the COVID-19 pandemic].”

The sad thing about today's interview, which can be seen in its totality here, is that McAfee showed signs that he's clearly been reigned in by the powers that be.

For the first time today, McAfee began to speak up and point out anytime Rodgers said something controversial or unfounded. It was exaggerated like everything McAfee does but it was so blatant that you could pretty much tell there was a producer in his ear telling him when to stop Rodgers and comment.

Rodgers also made it a point to harp on his belief that the controversies of the past week are just another example of media silencing those with nontraditional views.

“There’s a lot of people who have been captured by various government entities, whether we’re talking about pharmaceutical industrial complex or whether we’re talking about believing that the government has the best interests in mind,” Rodgers said. “In the end, if you are not someone whose opinion aligns with the mainstream narrative, this is what they’re going to do with you.”

Is he wrong?

Depends on your personal beliefs I think.

Personally, I agree with him. But I'm also a conspiracy theorist with CTE, so take it with that grain of salt. 

I also think it's pretty sad that we're in a place as a society where this is essentially how people with differering views communicate now. There's no such thing as civil discourse anymore. It's all bomb-throwing, back and forth, making things personal, taking offense to things that aren't personal, and looking for any and every reason to cancel the other person and cut off any and all talk while making sure to get in the last word. 

As mentioned in my first blog on this monkey-shit-fight, this all started because Kimmel has gone out of his way to rip Rodgers any chance he has had about his Covid-Vax (or whatever he said he did or didn't do) status.

That was months ago. Fast forward to this past week where Rodgers brought up on McAfee's show, albeit, somewhat awkwardly, about his theory about Super Bowl logos being predictive of who the league wants in the Super Bowl, as well as coverups for UFOs being used to distract us from the Epstein client list documents being unsealed.  Kimmel couldn't wait to attack Rodgers for that on his show, using the clip posted right above here. As Rodgers pointed out today, saying he's not that much of a moron to do so, he wasn't implying that Kimmel was on the list, he was signifying that there IS A REAL LIST that exists and Kimmel (and others) don't want it being exposed, and weren't going to like the names being made public.

Without going further, Rodgers was more than likely alluding to the fact that aside from all of the rich and famous Hollywood buddies he has that could potentially be associated with Epstein, Kimmel is tied very close to one of Epstein's closest business associates and friends- both of the men's personal chef, Adam Lang.

Lang owns APL Restaurant in LA (his initials Adam Perry Lang), and was Epstein's personal chef for years before his arrest. He would accompany Epstein on various business trips to his houses in the Virgin Islands, New Mexico, and Florida and cook for his parties. 

As Eater reported in 2020, Lang was questioned extensively by authorities about what he knew and his involvement with Epstein.

Eater- Last year, unsealed court documents showed Lang flew with Epstein in private jets and traveled with the billionaire to various properties in Florida, New Mexico, and the Virgin Islands. At the time, Lang responded by claiming that his role for Epstein was “limited to meal preparation” and that he was “unaware of depraved behavior,” extending “sympathy and admiration for the women who have come forward.”

However, Giuffre’s account in the podcast sheds more light onto Lang’s relationship with Epstein as his private chef. During the episode, Giuffre searches for Lang to ask him to speak up against Epstein, who died by suicide while in custody awaiting trial for sex-trafficking charges. Giuffre is seeking support for her case against Epstein’s former lawyer Alan Dershowitz, whom she accused of sexual abuse (Dershowitz denies the allegations).

In a comment to the Daily Beast, Lang’s attorney Lawrence Lustberg said Lang is cooperating with New York prosecutors investigating Epstein’s sex ring. Lustberg also said he contacted Giuffre’s lawyer and offered Lang’s assistance, though no conversation has taken place. Lang released a statement to the Broken podcast, saying he never saw any sexual activity or nudity and was never aware of any underage girls. Lang maintains that he never was told of or saw any depraved acts committed by Epstein.

Lang maintains that he never was told of or saw any depraved acts committed by Epstein.

On that same podcast which disclosed Lang's connections to the Epstein case, Giuffe also brough to light a really bizarre incident involving Lang and his friend Jimmy Kimmel, while she was trying to track him down to interview him for the podcast.

…Instead they research on Google to discover that Lang is staying at a home in Hermosa Beach owned by Jimmy Kimmel, the late night television host and co-owner in APL restaurant. In January 2019, Lang was involved in a bizarre incident in which he was arrested at Kimmel’s home after a 911 emergency call reported that a man was inside the house making threats with explosives and had assaulted a woman with a rifle. Lang was later cleared of any charges; he was reportedly sound asleep when cops arrived.

As TMZ reported-

TMZ - Jimmy Kimmel's good friend who was arrested for allegedly making criminal threats from inside his beachside rental home got busted because of a key ear-witness -- his estranged wife … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us famous chef and best selling author Adam Perry Lang's arrest was based in large part on the 911 recording -- in which a man said he was inside Jimmy's Hermosa Beach rental home with explosives and had assaulted his girlfriend with a high-powered rifle.

Bizarre to say the least.

What's ironic, and typical of affairs in 2024, is that Kimmel started this entire thing. He took shots at Rodgers unprovoked, multiple times, and then Rodgers hit back, not even below the belt, and Kimmel throws up his hands and yells Rodgers was out of line and endangered his family. 

Now it's turned into a full flegded soap opera, with the two trading shots publicly through each of their Disney-owned platforms. I think the only saving grace for Kimmel, and all of us, is that McAfee announced today that this would be Rodgers last appearance on his show until next year now that the regular season is over. Hopefully Kimmel shuts up and lets this pass.

Either way, ESPN has got to be thanking their lucky fucking stars Barstool's sales department dropped the ball, allowing him to fall right into their laps. Talk about being thrown a life preserver on a sinking ship.

Can you imagine the pot stirring Portnoy and Gaz would be conducting in the background had this been going on under the Pirate Ship's flag?

Juggies, take us out.

p.s. - a lot of people love to say how unfunny Kimmel is but I disagree. His skits on The Man Show where he had the short adult pretending to be a little kid were fucking hilarious
