Comedian Jimmy Fallon really ought to do a little fact-checking before delivering a liberal screed — er, I mean “joke.”
The host of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” for some reason decided to take a racial shot at the Republican Party, in the wake of the controversy over this year’s Oscar nominees.
It did not go well.
Fallon tweeted: “This year’s Oscar nominees are so white, they just became the frontrunner for the 2016 Republican nomination.”

Um, ok. I guess Jimmy didn’t bother to take a gander at who are the respective frontrunners for each party heading into 2016.

That’s right. A sea of White on the Democrat side — 16 of 16. And on the GOP side: 2 Blacks, 2 Hispanics and 2 of Indian descent. Pot meet kettle.
Uh, oh…does “Reverend” Al know?

Oh Jimmy. Can’t you just entertain us? Why not leave your tired liberal talking points to your hero Obama?
