Greene, Clyde accrue nearly 0K in combined mask fines MORE (R-Colo.) on his late-night show for calling him a "sexist pig" in a recent tweet after he insulted the first-term lawmaker and vocal Trump supporter.
The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host had previously featured a clip of Boebert, an opponent of coronavirus vaccine mandates, calling for a “full investigation into just how many puppies were eaten alive on [Anthony] Fauci’s watch.”
He had joked that “every time he hears her speak he expects it to turn into stepmother porn.”
Responding to Boebert's Nov. 6 tweet on his show's opening monologue on Thursday, Kimmel said, "She only wears glasses to make it seem like she can read."
“She is apparently not a fan of me or our show,” he said, while adding that his previous statement about her was “obviously a joke.” He continued: “Her videos are so much dumber than stepmother porn.”
"Some of these videos that she makes are so unbelievably over the top, it’s hard to believe this person exists. They seem like sketches from 'Saturday Night Live,'" he said.
Kimmel then used one of his show's segments, called "Lie Witness News," to show people on the streets of Los Angeles clips of Boebert. The people were then asked if they thought "SNL" had gone too far in response to scenes of her discussing articles of impeachment against President BidenJoe BidenFormer chairman of Wisconsin GOP party signals he will comply with Jan. 6 committee subpoena Romney tests positive for coronavirus Pelosi sidesteps progressives' March 1 deadline for Build Back Better MORE or talking about giving birth in the front seat of her truck in reaction to Democrats' calls for paid family leave.

Boebert's office did not immediately respond to The Hill's request for comment.
