Jimmy Kimmel thought he was putting to rest the rumors swirling around Hillary Clinton’s health when he asked her to open a pickle jar on his show earlier this week.
But, as might be expected, the “pickle test” did little to assuage Clinton opponents, who now see Kimmel as a willing participant in the conspiracy to cover up the Democratic nominee’s debilitating ailments.
On last night’s show, Kimmel played for his audience clips from a seven-minute video featuring InfoWars host and, the host said, leading “pickle-gate” proponent Alex Jones dissecting the segment in question and concluding that the entire performance was staged.
The pickle “can” as Jones refers to it didn’t “pop,” nor did Clinton open it in a manner consistent with normal opening procedure.
Kimmel proceeded to mock Jones for having too much time on his hands, and went on to “admit” that, indeed, the can-spiracy was uncovered, and now he had no choice but to murder the pickle jar.
“If you’re ever feeling bad about your job,” Kimmel told his viewers, "just remember there’s a grown man who spent a full seven minutes yelling about me and a pickle jar on television."
