Jimmy Kimmel writer says 2nd amendment isn’t in the Constitution, then she blames backlash on sexism


Jimmy Kimmel has taken quite a beating since making hysterical crying fits his trademark political strategy. The late night host has been intellectually decimated by conservative giants like Ben Shapiro and mocked in West Hollywood street art.

Now it’s his writers’ turn. It’s fair to imagine that since they’re the ones who actually come up with Kimmel’s mindless content, they’re just as clueless as their boss.

It seems they’re all-too-eager to prove us right.

Just look at what Jimmy Kimmel Live! writer Bess Kalb has to say about the Constitution. On Monday, she took to Twitter to write:

“Real quick seems worth clarifying the Second Amendment isn’t in the Constitution. It’s an amendment to the Constitution.”

Kalb eventually deleted her tweet after people who actually took a middle school civics class pointed out the absurdity of her statement. Fortunately, screen capture means nothing on the internet is lost forever.


A conservative was standing close-by to offer this blunt-but-honest tweet.

The Jimmy Kimmel writer fired back.


Other Twitter users were quick to question what being a man has to do with correcting someone when they’ve made such a blatant error.


Kalb then added insult to her own injury by further demonstrating her ignorance of the Constitution.

At least Kalb owned up to the fact she doesn’t know the difference between the 13th Amendment–which ended slavery–and the 19th Amendment–which gave women the right to vote.


It’s sad to see that someone who’s so handsomely paid by a major television network is so deficient in the finer points of the Constitution.

What Kalb fails to understand is that the entire point of constitutional amendments is that they become part of the Constitution, as binding as the original text. Otherwise, what would that mean for the 19th Amendment that gives this sexism-obsessed writer the right to vote?

Kalb also appears never to have heard of the Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments that were considered too basic and obvious to even include in the Constitution. But as a safeguard against people like Ms. Kalb, the framers added in the Bill of Rights as a requisite for the Constitution to be ratified.

That’s the beauty of Twitter. It allows the know-it-alls to be schooled in the error of their ways.
