"I would love to fight": Jimmy Kimmel accepts Roy Moore's challenge

Or maybe when you say, "Come down to Alabama and we'll do it man to man", that means you're challenging me to a fight, which is kind of what it sounds like.

After Kimmel sent one of his show's satirical characters to a Moore event at a church Wednesday, the Republican candidate lashed out on Twitter Thursday afternoon saying, "If you want to mock our Christian values, come down here to Alabama and do it man to man".

Others including longtime aides and attorneys are helping Moore fight allegations that are threatening his campaign. (Note: Moore already seems excited.) In trying to catch people up on Moore's background, Kimmel repeated the charge that Moore was allegedly banned from the shopping mall decades due to his proclivities with approaching young women.


The Limestone County Republican Executive Committee this week unanimously adopted a resolution supporting Roy Moore as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate.

Kimmel read the Twitter exchange during his opening monologue on Thursday night: "And I responded, and he responded back, and I responded again".

"I accept that invitation". At my church, forcing yourself on underage girls is a no-no. There is no one I would rather fight than you.


If you're open to it, when we sit down, I'll share with you what I learned at my church. "We don't hate Alabama", said Kimmel.

With regard to the proposed "fight", Kimmel even suggested that he and Moore charge admission and then donate any proceeds to a charity chosen by the victor. "Christian is actually my middle name-I know that's shocking, but it's true", he said.
