Like most late night hosts, Jimmy Kimmel has been spending a lot of time talking about Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore. Specifically, Kimmel has been talking about how terrible Moore is based on recent allegations. After sending a comedian down to a Moore campaign stop, Moore decided enough is enough and challenged Kimmel to what seems to be either a debate or a fight.
Literally. He tweeted, "If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man."
Most people know it is never a good idea to pick a fight on twitter with someone whose job it is to take you down, because when you do, things like this happen: "Sounds great Roy - let me know when you get some Christian values and I'll be there!" Boom. Roasted.
Now while most people at this point would realize this is not a fight they are going to win and walk away, Moore decided to keep fighting with his words (while we assume his invitation to duel is still open). "Despite D.C. and Hollywood Elites' bigotry towards Southerners," he wrote (in a way that I inexplicably read it in his accent), "Jimmy, we'll save you a seat on the front pew."
And, of course, Kimmel didn't let it end there.
I mean, what else was he expecting? That Jimmy Kimmel, professional comedian, was just going to quietly back away from the tweets and come down to Alabama and physically fight a politician?!
On his show later that night, Kimmel provided some additional context and explained exactly what he'd like to do with Roy Moore:
We'll see if Kimmel and Moore ever do meet face-to-face, but in the meantime, the Internet already has some thought on who's winning.
