Jimmy Kimmel Trashes Keith Olbermann and Al Gore at White House Correspondents' Dinner

Jimmy Kimmel on Saturday trashed former MSNBC and Current TV anchor Keith Olbermann as well as the controversial commentator's former boss Al Gore.

During his keynote address at the annual White House Correspondents' Dinner, Kimmel said, "I’d like everyone to look under your seats. Under each one you will find a copy of Keith Olbermann’s resume" (video follows with transcript and commentary):


JIMMY KIMMEL: Alright, it’s time for the fun part of the evening. I’d like everyone to look under your seats. Under each one you will find a copy of Keith Olbermann’s resume. Is Keith here tonight? Limo wouldn’t pick him up? The thing about Keith Olbermann is he’s so likable.

Al Gore launched Current TV in 2005 and it took off like a North Korean rocket. To be honest, I didn’t even know Current TV was still on the air, but then I don’t get channel a million.

Keith Olbermann burned more bridges than the Arsonist of Madison County. He has more pink slips than Marcus Bachmann.

For his part, Olbermann shot back via Twitter saying, "Funny that Jimmy Kimmel ripped me after his people desperately wanted me to fly to LA to be on his show this past Wednesday."

Looks like this could be oodles of fun.

Stay tuned.
