Kimmel: Kavanaugh Gets to Be on Supreme Court If We Get to Cut off 'That Pesky Penis of His'

September 25, 2018

Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel joked in his monologue Monday that Brett Kavanaugh could be on the Supreme Court in exchange for having his "pesky penis" cut off.

"I think there's a compromise here. Hear me out on this," Kimmel said, according to Breitbart News. "So, Kavanaugh gets confirmed to the Supreme Court. OK. Well, in return we get to cut that pesky penis of his off in front of everyone."

The joke didn't appear to completely land with his ABC crowd, as he added, "No? That's not good? I thought I had a solution there for a minute."

Kimmel tackled the latest allegation of sexual misconduct made against Kavanaugh, who appeared to be sailing toward confirmation until Christine Blasey Ford publicly accused him two weeks ago of sexual assault when they were teenagers in the early 1980s. Kavanaugh denied the claim and asked to testify to clear his name.

On Sunday, a Yale classmate, Deborah Ramirez, made an uncorroborated claim that he once drunkenly thrust his penis in her face at a dorm party. Kavanaugh denied that claim as well and appeared on Fox News Monday night to say he refused to drop out of the confirmation process in the face of false charges.

Kimmel also joked about Kavanaugh's revelation that he was a virgin through high school and several years after, quipping he could be the next contestant on The Bachelor if the Supreme Court doesn't work out—the show's next bachelor famously said he was a virgin on the last season of the Bachelorette.
