Aaron Rodgers fires back at Jimmy Kimmel in Jeffrey Epstein list feud
Aaron Rodgers offered no apologies to Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday.
To the contrary, the Jets quarterback doubled down on his disdain for the ABC late-night host in what can be best described as a rambling, profanity-laced, somewhat unhinged session during his weekly paid appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.
Kimmel, who believed he was slandered by an implication by Rodgers on last week’s show that he was fearful his name might appear in the Jeffrey Epstein sex-trafficking documents, some of which have since been released, called out Rodgers during a salty monologue Monday night.
Kimmel, who aggressively shot back at Rodgers last week on social media and threatened legal action, went scorched earth on the 40-year-old quarterback in his monologue, saying he was owed an apology, though wasnt expecting one.

I dont have any apologies, not for that guy from ABC, Rodgers said.
Rodgers, on last weeks show, joked about the since-unsealed court documents said to contain more than 150 people mentioned in legal proceedings related to Epstein and said, Theres a lot of people, including Jimmy Kimmel, that are really hoping that doesnt come out.

I still havent popped a bottle because there hasnt been any list thats come out, he said Tuesday.
Then Rodgers curiously added, And Im glad that Jimmy is not on the list, I really am, even though he had just said there was no list thats emerged as of yet.
5The Jets quarterback addressed the Jimmy Kimmel-Jeffrey Epstein controversy. ESPNThe feud between the two began during the COVID-19 pandemic when Kimmel ridiculed Rodgers for his stance against vaccinations and famously saying he was immunized.
Aaron Rodgers has a very high opinion of himself, Kimmel said during his Monday monologue. He genuinely thinks that because God gave him the ability to throw a ball, hes smarter than everybody else. We learned during COVID somehow he knows more about science than scientists.
A guy who went to community college, then got into Cal on a football scholarship, and didnt graduate. Someone who never spent a minute studying the human body is an expert in the field of immunology. Aaron got two As on his report card and they were both in the word Aaron.

— Jimmy Kimmel Live (@JimmyKimmelLive) January 9, 2024Rodgers on Tuesday shot back at Kimmel, saying, I think its impressive that a man who went to Arizona State and has 10 joke writers can read off the prompter. My education and JUCO and my three semesters at Cal, which Im very proud of, has worked out for me and Im glad to see its worked out for him as well.
I wish him the best, but I dont give a s–t what he says about me. As long as he understands what I actually said and Im not accusing him of being on a list.
Instead of apologizing for dragging Kimmels name into the Epstein ordeal, Rodgers clarified his comments, saying he didnt accuse Kimmel of being a pedophile.

He also called out Kimmel for giving a platform to Dr. Anthony Fauci, the former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, whom Rodgers believes to be one of the biggest spreaders of misinformation during the pandemic.
Rodgers said he totally understands how serious an allegation of pedophilia can be and praised himself for the way he carefully phrased his criticism of Kimmel.
For him to be upset about that? I get it, Rodgers said. Did you watch the quote? Im not stupid enough to accuse you of that with absolutely zero concrete evidence. Thats ridiculous.
5The late-night host spoke about Aaron Rodgers during his monologue. ABCRodgers spent much of the rest of his time during the appearance defending his stance on the COVID-19 vaccinations and ridiculing Fauci as a fraud who misled the public. He also blamed the media for its portrayal of his words, said hes received death threats and has been called out for being anti-Semitic and a MAGA supporter.
This is the game plan of the media, Rodgers said. They try and cancel.
Somewhere back in Florham Park, N.J., the Jets brass owners Woody and Christopher Johnson, general manager Joe Douglas and head coach Robert Saleh had to be quietly cringing.

If you want to be a winning organization and put yourself in position to win championships and be competitive, everything that you do matters, Rodgers said. And the bulls–t that has nothing to do with winning needs to get out of the building.
Oh, the irony.
More comedy ensued as Rodgers, waxing poetic about McAfees show and how its the new wave in media, talked about how no one wants to go on any other show and that the only reason athletes and celebrities go on the other shows is to promote a product theyre hawking.
Rodgers is paid a reported $1 million a year for his weekly spots on McAfee.
