Guillermo’s Longtime Feud With LeBron James Just Hit A Whole New Level

JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! / ABC

Sports rivalries are as old as competition itself. They elevate a player’s game. They make for good stories. And, if you’re Guillermo from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” they’re great for comedy. Every year before the NBA finals, the media is allowed to attend and interview players for their programs, whether it’s late night television or a local affiliate news show. For the last six years, fan favorite Guillermo has attended media day and scored several great interviews.

As Kimmel pointed out, Guillermo has “talked to everyone,” including superstars Steph Curry, Dwayne Wade, Kevin Durant.

They’ve all welcomed Guillermo’s brand of humor with open arms.

But there’s one interview Guillermo hasn’t been able to score: LeBron James.

How rude. ?

It’s not like Guillermo hasn’t tried to get the interview.

DENIED.

He got stuffed worse than that time Paul Pierce denied LeBron James.

I never know when to use “who” or “whom.”

He got denied worse than Mariah Carey Talking about J.Lo.

He flirted, took shots, and had a good time making everyone generally uncomfortable.

This year’s Emmys was big for people of color: Lena Waithe was the first Black woman to ever get an Emmy for comedy writing, Riz Ahmed won the first-ever acting Emmy for a South Asian (and Muslim) man, and Donald Glover won for acting and directing. Aside from Alexis Bledel’s “Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series” win for “The Handmaids Tale” — at the Creative Arts Emmys a few nights before — there were no other Latino winners in the top categories — Lin-Manuel Miranda was nominated but didn’t win for his appearance on “Saturday Night Live.”

There was one Latino making some waves backstage, though. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” correspondent Guillermo interviewed winners in what they called “PiggyBack-to-Back” interviews, where he quite literally either gave or received PiggyBack rides. He flirted, took shots, and had a good time making everyone generally uncomfortable.

Kimmel and his show’s use of Guillermo can sometimes be problematic, i.e. Alec Baldwin mimicking his accent, or having him stereotypically take shots of Tequila, but Guillermo is at his best when he’s got celebrities on their heels, showing off his wit and sharp comedic timing. At one point, Emmy winner Julia-Louis Dreyfus sits in the awkward setup and says out loud the joke we were all secretly hoping for by threatening him: “Guillermo, if you try to fuck me in the ass… I am not going to be happy.” The crowd goes wild.

Jimmy Kimmel Says Trump Rescinding DACA Is Probably To Get Rid Of His Own Kids Who Are The Children Of Immigrants Too

Jimmy Kimmel Says Trump Rescinding DACA Is Probably To Get Rid Of His Own Kids Who Are The Children Of Immigrants Too

“It seems like his main agenda is to undo everything Obama did – I hope he doesn’t bring Bin Laden back to life…”

Jimmy Kimmel, like most late night comedy hosts, has been roasting Donald Trump and his administration’s policy changes, political scandals, and moral blunders since the beginning of his presidency. But rescinding DACA is a lower blow than Trump claimed he was capable of. On many occasions, he said that DACA was a sensitive issue for him, promising he would treat dreamers with “great heart” and saying that “they shouldn’t be very worried.” Earlier this week, however, that all seemed to go down the drain when he made his Attorney General Jeff Sessions announce that the Trump administration would be rescinding DACA. Kimmel’s impression on why Trump chose this very moment to end DACA is pretty spot on, saying:

“Our president woke up and asked his staff ‘Now that this hurricane is over what’s something horrible I can do to distract people from the Russia investigation?’ Someone said, ‘You know, there are 800,000 innocent kids you could deport for no good reason,” and he said, ‘Done. And done.'”

Kimmel then reminds everyone that Trump’s children were born out of his marriages to immigrants. He then tosses to a video PSA about protecting the children of immigrants. You know, like all the Trump kids are.

It’s pretty funny if you can forget for a moment that actual people are in danger if Congress doesn’t do something in the next six months .
