LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jimmy Kimmel is gearing up for a significant role in the political arena as he is set to moderate a conversation between President Joe Biden and former President Barack Obama

The Biden campaign fundraiser, scheduled for June 15, has already generated quite a bit of buzz as it will reportedly have Hollywood stars like George Clooney and Julia Roberts as special guests.

Tickets for the scheduled Biden fundraiser start at $250 per person, with a top-tier "event chair" package commanding a hefty $500,000, as per the Hollywood Reporter

The proceeds from the event will be channeled into the Biden Victory Fund, adding to the campaign's financial arsenal.

Kimmel's foray into presidential moderation follows in the footsteps of fellow late-night host Stephen Colbert, who helmed a similar event in New York earlier this year.

That gathering, featuring Biden alongside Obama and former President Bill Clinton, proved to be a lucrative endeavor, raking in a staggering $26 million in donations.

Jimmy Kimmel took aim at Disney's leadership at Disney Upfront 2024

News of Kimmel's latest opportunity comes after he made headlines for delivering a scathing monologue targeting Disney CEO Bob Iger at Disney Upfront 2024. 

The late-night host told the audience, "Bob Iger should be retired by now, he should be off on a yacht somewhere. Instead, he’s here pretending to be excited about a new season of Will-F*****g-Trent."

"Bob tried to sell us last year, he put us up for sale, and as if that wasn’t bad enough, no one wanted to buy us. When no one was interested, Bob explained that he didn’t mean he literally wanted to sell us, he was just testing the waters for Wall Street," quipped Kimmel. 

He added, "But thanks Bob. Usually, when people test the waters, they dip in a toe. They don’t drown their children. But we’re glad you’re back, albeit for a limited time, which is very McRib of you."

Internet reacts to the news of Jimmy Kimmel's Biden campaign fundraiser gig

One wrote, "Sounds like another Gvrnmnt propaganda," and another said, "Another Jimmy Flop."

A person expressed, "What a horrific decision. You would have to be a complete moron to have picked him," while someone else added, "As a moderate democrat, I couldn’t want to watch this less."

"This certainly won’t be anything but a campaign commercial and Obama will do most of the talking for Joe. The editor of this should be the Star. Kimmel is nothing but a stupid shill for the Far Left," fumed a netizen.
