While introducing the film editing category for awards, Kimmel said, "Anyone who’s ever received a text message from their father knows how important editing is.”
Kimmel continued, “Editors do amazing things. Editors can turn 44,000 hours of violent insurrection footage into a respectful sight-seeing tour of the Capitol.”
The assembled Hollywood elite laughed in response.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) gave some 42,000 hours of surveillance footage from the January 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol to the Fox News host.
Last week, Carlson parts of the footage which included Jacob Chansley, the "QAnon Shaman," being escorted around the building by Capitol police officers who appeared to be attemping to open locked doors for him.
"The tapes show the Capitol police never stopped Jacob Chansley," Carlson stated. "They helped him. They acted as his tour guides."
Additionally, Carlson debunked the media narrative that Officer Brian Sicknick was murdered by the rioters as Sicknick was seen in the footage described by Carlson as "healthy and vigorous," while guiding Trump supporters out of the building as he wore a helmet, which contradicts the media’s narrative that he died of a head injury.
Some of the footage showed Ray Epps, the man caught on video encouraging Trump supporters to enter the Capitol building the night before the Jan. 6 riot, on the grounds at least 30 minutes after the time he originally claimed when he testified before the House Select Committee about a text he sent his nephew earlier in which Epps claimed he was heading back to his hotel.
Earlier this month, Kimmel suggested Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers was a conspiracy theorist for wanting to know the names of those listed on Jeffrey Epstein's client list.
That was on the heels of Kimmel admitting that the coronavirus originating from a lab leak in Wuhan, China was a possibility, while still maitining that "it was irresponsible for the president to call it the China virus" despite the admissions by the Department of Energy and FBI director Christopher Wray that the virus likely originated from a lab leak in Wuhan.
