Forget Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The BIG debate on Sept. 26 went down between Democratic vice presidential pick Tim Kaine and Jimmy Kimmel! The late night talk show host has been on a self-appointed quest for the position, and Tim was game to go up against him over hard-hitting topics as stickers on fruit and pet videos.
Now THIS is a debate with some fun and big laughs, unlike the intense first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, 68, and Republican pick Donald Trump, 70. Hillary’s running mate Tim Kaine, 58, was up for a hilarious head to head battle with Jimmy Kimmel, 48, as the late night host has been campaigning hard for the vice presidential position since he announced his “run” back in May. The results were priceless!
Their setting during Jimmy Kimmel Live! was at a Bufffalo Wild Wings restaurant and Jimmy got down to the business of policy proposals. He told Tim,”I propose we have the Monday after the Super Bowl off…Super bowl Monday,” to which the Virginia Sentator sheepishly agreed, saying, “I wish I’d thought of that. It would be very popular.” Hell yeah it would be!
Jimmy asked him about his thoughts on the internet and Tim replied, “I’m not exactly a savvy guy,” before the host interrupted to say, “My thought is we’re spending too much time on it as a country, it’s affecting our productivity. Two posts a day. Any more than that you get one day in county jail.” Tim offered to improve on the plan, saying it should be unlimited if it includes sports and animals. Almost good enough for Jimmy, who conceded, ” I’ll give you sports, but I’m tired of seeing people’s pets.” HAH!
They went on to touch on March Madness, phone books, water fountains and stickers on fruit. Jimmy ended up with so many great ideas he proclaimed, “I feel like YOU would vote for ME for vice president”
“I think frankly you probably are superior to me, it’s just that when Hillary was making a choice she had a couple of criteria,” Tim explained, but it wasn’t what you’d think. “Looks was really important to her, that’s one of the things she said,” he delivered with complete confidence.
Ultimately they agreed they were equally qualified to be Veep so Jimmy proposed, “There’s only one way to settle this: a harmonica battle!” They both whipped out the tiny instruments and Tim went to TOWN! Man, who knew he had such mad skills! Unfortunately, Jimmy also appeared to be a virtuoso, completely going off the charts and stunning us with his hidden talent. “Alright, I’ve gotta call Hillary,” Tim conceded before John Popper from Blues Traveler showed up and turned out to be Jimmy’s harmonica double. He and Tim then got into a duel as the amazing segment came to a musical close. A-maz-ing!!!
