Aaron Rodgers, the renowned quarterback for the New York Jets, stirred up headlines in the initial days of 2024. He publicly addressed late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel and his association with the Epstein client list.

He made this statement during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, and his remarks quickly went viral just minutes after. Jimmy responded promptly, addressing the matter on his own show to provide further discussion.

“…He thinks that because God gave him the ability to throw a ball, (that) he’s smarter than everyone else.”
The Monologue Continued
Jimmy further expressed, “…either he (Rodgers) genuinely thought my name would be on (the list),… or the more probable scenario is… he’s upset with me for poking fun at his top knot.”
“He’s particularly upset…because I made fun of the fact that he (thinks) the UFO sightings…were being reported to distract us from (the list).
Jimmy Got Personal
The tirade didn’t conclude there, however. The comedian extended his rant, directing his metaphorical criticism at Aaron’s educational background.
“(He’s) a guy who went to community college, then got into Cal on a football scholarship and didn’t graduate…he put on a magic helmet, and that G made him a genius.”
