Like nearly everybody else in America, Jimmy Kimmel is thrilled by the information that America would possibly lastly ditch the silly, weekend-ruining, probably bodily harmful twice yearly time shift between Normal and Daylight Savings Time. And he celebrated it throughout his opening monologue Tuesday night time.
He additionally frivolously dinged the invoice’s sponsor for having a uncommon pro-science argument behind it.
To catch you up, earlier in the day the U.S. Senate took a break from guaranteeing nothing good can ever really change into legislation to… assist make one thing good change into legislation. On a extraordinarily uncommon unanimous vote, it handed Marco Rubio’s Sunshine Safety Act that, if additionally it is handed by the Home of Representatives, will make Daylight Savings Time everlasting. No extra sleep-destroying swapping forwards and backwards, no extra nightfall at 3 PM in December.
Anyway, again to Kimmel, who started his monologue calling this “a day that I’ve been waiting for almost my whole adult life – something finally happened. The United States Senate today voted, across party lines, to make daylight Saving Time permanent.”
“Meaning we may never have to change the clock on the microwave again,” Kimmel added.
“They’ve been trying to do this, various politicians have been trying to do this for years, but they kept getting clock-blocked. And not only this time not only did it pass, the vote was unanimous,” Kimmel continued. “When was the last time anything got a unanimous vote in the Senate? They couldn’t even agree unanimously to condemn Asian-American hate crimes! Josh Hawley was like, ‘Let’s not rush into anything.’”
That final apart is true, by the means, Josh Hawley actually is the solely Senator to vote in opposition to that hate crimes invoice.
“But this time they did. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, a Republican, was the lead sponsor of the bill. He said, ‘There’s strong science behind it that is now showing and making people aware of the harm that clock switching has.’ God. Well, good for you Marco. Wait until you find out about all the other things that have strong science behind them. You’re gonna be amazed. This is gonna be big for you,” Kimmel joked.
“But it’s a positive step. We’ve got some common ground! I am exceptionally proud to be an American today. We finally agreed on something,” Kimmel stated. “An idea that every sane American can get behind – that the sun shall never again set at lunchtime on Christmas day! And may God bless us everyone.”
