Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) "emerged from his shell yesterday to distance himself form congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene," calling out the Georgia Republican "for latching onto 'loony lies and conspiracy theories,'" Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live. "Even though he didn't mention her name, he suggested that people like her are a 'cancer' on the party that is distracting Republicans from the important work of blocking COVID relief to millions of Americans who need it," he added. "House Democrats are saying if Republicans don't strip Greene of her committee assignments, they will. And Republicans are like, 'Um, great, would you mind? We're not going to do it, these people are crazy.'"

"Last week, the MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell — who I'm loving more and more each day — was banned from Twitter," then he got the MyPillow account suspended, "and if he's not careful, Mike could be getting the boot from Newsmax," which wanted to talk to him Tuesday about "cancel culture," not his potentially defamatory election conspiracies, Kimmel said. "You know it's bad when Newsmax is like, 'Dial it down, buddy.'"
