Kimmel: ‘The Republican Presidential Race Now Officially Has More Characters Than ‘Game of Thrones”

During his monologue on his Thursday night broadcast, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel took a few jabs at former Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX), who had announced his intentions to seek the Republican presidential nomination earlier in the day.

After taking a few jabs at Perry for his unsuccessful bid in 2012, Kimmel commented on the number of candidates in the ever-expanding Republican Party presidential field.

“Boy is he sweating with like a pig,” he said. “Give him some air conditioning. You may notice he’s wearing glasses which means he’s smarter than the last time. Rick Perry isn’t known for his intellect. Rick Perry makes George W. Bush look like George H.W. bush but he’s at it again and why not? There are only so many coyotes you can shoot on your ranch. What else does he have to do?”

“The Republican presidential race now officially has more characters than ‘Game of Thrones,’” he added.
