Jimmy Kimmel: Herd Immunity Doesn’t Mean Taking Horse Medicine

Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the earlier night time’s highlights that allows you to sleep — and lets us receives a commission to observe comedy. Here are the 50 finest motion pictures on Netflix proper now.

‘The Variants Are Coming!’

On Thursday, President Biden introduced new vaccine necessities for federal staff and contractors, well being care employees and people working at corporations with greater than 100 staff.

“And, of course, a lot of people are upset about this,” Jimmy Kimmel stated. “They don’t want to be told what to do — not even by the doctors who they will eventually rush to to beg for help when they get sick.”

“Vaxxed and waxed. He wants his mailmen smooth.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“This really does feel like when your dad stops threatening and actually does turn the car around.” — JAMES CORDEN

“But you know, there’s a reason pandemic movies end when the hero finds the cure for the disease. There’s no ‘Contagion’ sequel with Matt Damon running around trying to convince everyone to take the vaccine — they just take the vaccine. And thank God, by the way — he sucks. We don’t need more movies with him.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Vaccine mandates have a proud history in this country. During a smallpox outbreak in 1777, George Washington required his troops to be immunized. And who can forget the immortal words of Paul Revere: ‘One if by J.&J., two if by Pfizer. The variants are coming! The variants are coming!’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“But, still, I don’t know, like a quarter of the country thinks herd immunity means they should be taking livestock medicine instead of the vaccination.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Biden said it’s time to stop horsing around — and then he was like, ‘No, seriously, stop taking horse medicine.’” — JAMES CORDEN

The Punchiest Punchlines (She’s Back Edition)

“The Biden administration yesterday removed 18 military academy board members that were appointed by Trump, including haunted Dollar Store Barbie doll Kellyanne Conway. Which, there’s a name I haven’t said in a while: Kellyanne Conway. I’m not gonna say it any more times. I’ve seen ‘Candyman.’ I know what might happen.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Why were there still any Trump holdovers anyway? That’s like moving into a rent-controlled apartment the last guy died in and keeping all the expired whitefish in the refrigerator.” — SETH MEYERS

“And why was Kellyanne Conway on an Air Force advisory board? If she ever flew an F-16 or what she probably calls an F-17, I guess we would end up in a ravine, her standing on a tarmac in a parachute claiming it was a successful landing.” — SETH MEYERS

The Bits Worth Watching

Stephen Colbert spoke with Steve Burns from “Blues Clues,” who went viral this week with a heartfelt video that addressed his abrupt departure from the beloved kids’s present near 20 years in the past.
