Climate Change Deniers' Attack on Jimmy Kimmel Backfired in the Best Possible Way

After Jimmy Kimmel tore Sarah Palin apart for her support of an anti-climate change documentary, Climate Hustle, on Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host unsurprisingly received some backlash online from climate change deniers. 

That's all well and good for them, but there was an unfortunate consistency in their responses: a failure to grasp basic grammar. And Kimmel swears it wasn't the case of picking and choosing. 

"I know it's going to seem like I'm only picking comments from people whose grammar is bad, but the truth of it is, the vast majority of the negative comments came from people whose grammar is bad," Kimmel explains. 

From the get-go, the commenters clearly missed their mark, with the first calling him "Mr Kimble," among other erroneous grammatical constructions.

Meanwhile, the second one actually resembled that out of a Palin response; as in, a sentence that seemed to drone on forever.

All the comments the host shared follow a similar befuddled tune and lead him to an unfortunate conclusion: Perhaps, with such ignorance, we deserve what's coming. 

"I have to say after reading all of this, I'm now kind of OK with global warming wiping out the human race," he concludes. "Turns out we deserve it."
