Jimmy Kimmel’s final monologue from Brooklyn Week got interrupted by Jon Stewart and his breakdancing crew, in promotion of Stewart’s upcoming Night of Too Many Stars on HBO. As part of that fundraiser special, Kimmel and Matt Damon announce the incredibly awkward Omaze experience they’re offering.
Before Kimmel got interrupted, he was explaining to his BAM audience about their mayor:
“Last night, I mentioned your mayor, Bill De Blasio – who is not a Yankees fan – or a Mets fan. He loves the Red Sox. Which is like Mayor McCheese walking into Burger King and ordering a Whopper,” Kimmel said.
“He said it would be impossible for him to root for the Yankees, and still doesn’t seem to understand why this is a big deal.”
Stating the obvious, a reporter had asked De Blasio if it wasn’t part of the mayor’s job to rise above his personal preferences and root for the team from the city he was elected to run.
“Oh really? Okay, let’s take a vote,” Kimmel said. “Is this a thing New Yorkers care about?
“Literally, this is may be the only thing New Yorkers care about!” the late-night host insisted.
“They care about this – and the subway. And, if we’re talking baseball here, you’re 0 for 2,” Kimmel warned De Blasio in absentia.
“Even Anthony Weiner is like, ‘Dude, you’re embarrassing yourself. Stop!'”
