WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel Blasts 'Ignorant A-Hole' Caitlyn Jenner

  • Suffice it to say that Jimmy Kimmel is not a fan of Caitlyn Jenner. During his Thursday night monologue, Kimmel skewered the California gubernatorial candidate for implying that the state's homeless population is inconveniencing rich people. "Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole?" asked Kimmel.

    Earlier this week, Jenner sat down with Fox News' Sean Hannity to discuss her campaign and her attitude towards former President Trump. "What I liked about Donald Trump is he was a disrupter," said Jenner. "He came in and shook the system up."

    "He shook the system so hard he lost custody of it," joked Kimmel. "Child protective service had to come in to stop him from shaking the system."

    The ABC host then took aim at Jenner's story about a guy in the private plane hangar across from hers (humble brag) leaving California. "He says, 'I'm moving to Sedona, Arizona, I can't take it anymore. I can't walk down the streets and see the homeless,'" she told Hannity.

    "Ah, homeless people: can't walk around them, can't fly over them," ripped Kimmel, who asked if it's "transphobic" to call out Jenner's remarks. "Or does calling that trans person an ignorant A-hole -- even though she happens to be a trans person -- show that we don't discriminate against ignorant A-holes, no matter their gender orientation? It's a tough one. I don't know, I guess we'll let the internet decide tomorrow."

    Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 PM ET on ABC.
