Jimmy Kimmel: Canceling Dr. Seuss Is 'Trump's Path to Victory'
Left-wing comedian admits wokeism has gone to far
ABC’s left-wing late-night host Jimmy Kimmel warned that embracing cancel culture could help President Donald Trump to re-election in 2024.
Kimmel's caution came after six popular Dr. Seuss books “will stop being published because of racist and insensitive imagery."
“This is how Trump gets reelected, by the way,” Kimmel told his audience.
“Cancel Dr. Seuss, cancel Abe Lincoln, meltdown Mr. Potato Head’s private parts, and throw them at the Muppets."
"That is his path to victory the next time around.”
Last week, the national educator's organization warned schools that the children's books Dr. Seuss have “racial undertones."
For over two decades, March 2 has been recognized as Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
The National Education Association founded the reading recognition day in 1998.
A prominent Virginia school district caved to their liberal demands and ordered its schools to avoid “connecting Read Across America Day with Dr. Seuss.”

Loudoun County Public Schools announced it would no longer recognize Dr. Seuss on his birthday.
The school district said that Dr. Suess’s children’s books contain “racial undertones” and are not suitable for “culturally responsive” learning.
The school's announcement said:
“Realizing that many schools continue to celebrate ‘Read Across America Day’ in partial recognition of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, it is important for us to be cognizant of research that may challenge our practice in this regard."
Kimmel felt the brunt of cancel culture last year when he faced backlash for once wearing blackface and using the N-word.
The comedian apologized for the “words I spoke” but didn’t specifically admit to using the n-word.
