Daniel Zuniga (2 years ago)

First I assumed it was interview with a real Mayor. But as it went on I was like.. "oh this is one of those pretends like Jimmy's phone calls". Then I got suspicious cuz they were commenting like he's for real but I thought "Naww it can't be, no way...". . So I googled him and WTF! He is for real! Holy macaronis! This is fuking hilarious!
The Quartz Network (10 months ago)
This is real. Unfortunately he's in office.
Alan B (2 years ago)
OMG hilarious
Mijc Osis (2 years ago)
I seriously could barely finish watching this it was so painful
CriticalHit149 (2 years ago)
No joke. After the mayor said 'tacos..' I was like, "He did not just fucking.." but, after the reporter called him out and he continued FURTHER I just... ugg.. I feel bad for the guy now, lol, ya know. He, and for that matter many politicians, shouldve just said, I fucked that up, and then reword or say something entirely different, yet, instead, just goes further and further into his.. food fetish. oi.
Michael T. Richards (3 years ago)
Love the videos, but did Jimmy Dore just refer to all Italians as white ? Dear god...#facepalm #SMH #EpicFail #SouthernItaly
blunt rapture (2 years ago)
+Michael Richards Oddly, that's how society sees them now. Irish people were treated like swarthy subhumans. Now, they are considered "white." Interesting and weird.
FilthyCasualKai (3 years ago)
He must be really hungry.
kayecamp3 (3 years ago)
if the FBI arrested cops, they had to have been doing some really horrible things to those Latinos.
JosephJamesScott (3 years ago)
I love TV's Frank, he has the best lines
Kevin Krueger (3 years ago)
It's so hilarious when a racist working for the public tries to worm his way out from under his own words and actions. Maybe he'll have tacos, maybe some Italian food. Good for you buddy.
Kevin Krueger (3 years ago)
+msmwkc There you go. Nice snag, bud. I'll be smiling the rest of the day.
msmwkc (3 years ago)
+Kevin Krueger He did have tacos. The best part about this story is that the day after an immigration reform group sent 500 tacos to his office.
Evaughn Elliott (3 years ago)
Jimmy needs his own show on TV. I literally wet my pants everytime. They are hilarious!
Hisako Reichmann (4 years ago)
None of these guys has an upper lip..the one guy doesn't even have a lower lip.  Is that weird?  Otherwise..LOL.
juanlambda27 (4 years ago)
He sounds like the Rain Man minus the savant part Lmao
Vince Veloce (4 years ago)
This show HAS to be promoted more I just found it and I have been watching TYT for ages and had no idea about it and I love it.

They caught him right after he smoked a fatty. 
PwnstarUK (4 years ago)
That mayor is drunk, how do people not notice?
CriticalHit149 (2 years ago)
pick up ON** it, sorry
CriticalHit149 (2 years ago)
I didnt pick up it until about minute 6, but, whe he starts saying 'allegations', the tipsy-ness comes through.
wabisabi888 (4 years ago)
Is Jimmy married?
msmwkc (3 years ago)
I think so. There was a clip somewhere where he's talking about how he stopped taking the hair growth pills and mentioned it was probably a good thing he was already married.

Now THIS is entertainment!
MSG685 (4 years ago)
That went pretty bad for him. . . According to Wikipedia he's not a total douche. Vietnam vet. firefighter for 17 years. His last election was pretty close 2011 Joseph Maturo (R) 4,033 - April Capone Almon (D) 3,999
fridginators (5 years ago)
Is that Stef laughing in the background?
smeechdog (5 years ago)
The reporter was cool as...lol...stayed really calm...but wouldn't let it go like some kinda psychological sadist. Awesome! (:
cudaphil (5 years ago)
I think the mayor could use a shot of Tequila.
Chris Cruise (5 years ago)
I love how all the haters are college dropouts... You could do better in an interview but your to busy jerkn it to porn and marrying hairy homos, lol... This is definitely the most retarded generation in U.S History... You shat in your own bed, now rest your head in your own feces and try to sleep... DICKHEADS

Tyler Nearing (5 years ago)
I actually said oh my god aloud while he waz
5jerry1 (5 years ago)
That mayor could have saved himself a whole lot of embarrassment if he would've just admitted it was a bad joke and let it drop.
malighn (5 years ago)
he may even try some of that "salsa"
BobButtins (5 years ago)
This interview exudes brilliance. It's tragic to watch.
Matt L (5 years ago)
SupaDupaJetSwag (5 years ago)
It was funny. I couldn't believe it was real, it was like a scene from a comedy film.
jerico641 (5 years ago)
He got himself elected BECAUSE he's a racist, and all the other power brokers in his little town are, too. They know "the score" and how to snicker at minorities in private, telling vile jokes that make all of them laugh out loud, but it's only supposed to be done in empty, dark parking lots after the city's commission meetings are over. This guy just let a little of that slip in front of the camera...
Everhandy (5 years ago)
I love you guys! Crackin' me up.
philosophicalreason (5 years ago)
well it's not like he called them wet backs LOL
Lotus Prince (5 years ago)
I'm gonna spin your comment however I want.
Nancy Rappaccini (5 years ago)
That mayor sounds mentally retarded. And I don't mean to insult the mentally retarded population...
Chris Ducat (5 years ago)
What a shitty politician...if he was any good he would have bullshitted the interviewer and just said "we're very committed to the latino community" or some nonsense like that.

Julian Angel (5 years ago)
I'm Mexican and I love Italians!
Lanoira13 (6 years ago)
Italians aren't even really "white". And they are Hispanic, "white" or not. Spanish are just as light skinned.... Why do they make it sound otherwise? Although he shouldn't use his ancestral background to avoid press pressure.
catscats50 (6 years ago)
We also have Italians in Europe and they are as dark skinned as latinos don't confuse food or culture with race.
Teremei (6 years ago)
That's called Journalism. You're just not used to seeing that in the United States. All the mayor had to say was "Sorry that was a stupid mistake, now let us talk about the issue seriously, again my appologies". But he can't because he's a dumb moron.
Herbert Wehner (6 years ago)
This is 'SO GOOD', as Sophia Grace would say on the Ellen Show ^^
hronbubberd (6 years ago)
I loved watching him dig himself deeper and deeper and deeper. He would have kept going, but he dug so deep, he came out in China, and had Chinese food, or maybe spaghetti, in a nice Chinese neighborhood, or whatever. You can spin that comment anyway you want, you media people...

kreskinkun (6 years ago)
That's one of the most tragic interviews I've ever seen.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
Yes, I;m a cranky fuck who doest suffer fools well, and you happened to be the fool this time. Congrats! And hilarious joke about my vag. Really well done. Except you revealed a lot more than you realize. The fact that you bring up my vag out of nowhere is a sure tip off of your insecurity about your own manhood, which was kind of obvious of you. Bravo.
Zaxomio (6 years ago)
he was joking.
ripcitiboi (6 years ago)
LOL this brilliance or stupidity at its finest! Just subscribed.
PhoxNews (6 years ago)
This a modern US monty python sketch... right? Too much of a parody to be real, surely.
bowser5295 (6 years ago)
I was expecting an angry pickle rant.
Lobos222 (6 years ago)
He didnt want to commit to that he WAS having tacos, but he would correction it to that he was considering tacos among other meals for dinner today... :)
Duplicat (6 years ago)
Larry, Moe and Curly, I love these guys, and now their in color ;)
Josh Leyh (6 years ago)
It's not when it's foggy. I'm a moron huh? Watch out, we gotta badass over here!
dubsity280 (6 years ago)
i wrote what fuck what i needed douche..fail? lmao kick rocks kiddo
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
Fail, try again. You almost wrote a coherent sentence.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
I'm 11, and even I think your a moron. Your not sure if the guy was being condescending to a latino reporter? Are you not sure if the sky is blue?
Bryan Newton (6 years ago)
Frank Conniff is the best. Oh my god! This show is great.
revjimbob (6 years ago)
Fuck off, troll.
Josh Leyh (6 years ago)
Like I said, maybe he was. But the way he said it just seems like he was trying to get a laugh. It reminds me kind of the Michael Richards incident at the Laugh Factory. But idk, maybe the mayor is actually that stupid. I'd like to believe that elected officials are smarter than that, but I wouldn't put it past this stupid country. After all, we elected George W. Bush and Michele Bachmann... And what's with the name calling? Are you 12? Does your mom or dad know you're using the internet?
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
I know you are scottish, but are you also retarded?
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
if the sound of someone laughing at jokes makes you annoyed, you should think about shooting yuorself.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
ITs a comedy show, not a news show. MOst people have never seen this clip. Lets try to keep that in mind and our heads out of our asses.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
This isn't a fucking news show moron, its a comedy show where they fun of stuff and people laugh. WHo gives a shit when they guy said stupid stuff that makes us laugh?
flake452 (6 years ago)
Yeah its still a dumb question that divides people a furthers racism.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
Someone call someone cuz you aint a comedy writer, thats for sure. You make comedy look HARD.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
Are you so stupid as to not see that this guy was condescending to Latino's and dismissing their concerns? Yes, you are that stupid.
undercoverposter (6 years ago)
Well if AMerica was majority Latino and whites were the minority and the cops had been harassing members of the Italian community, then the question of "What are you doing for the Italian community" would be very appropriate. That is called thinking though a subject before posting. You should try it sometime. But we both know you won't!
Voodoo Ray (6 years ago)
TVs Frank!
tomitstube (6 years ago)
i love this show.
ScreamingForClemency (6 years ago)
gee.. i wonder if this guy is Italian. i can't quite tell.
ScreamingForClemency (6 years ago)
"it perpetuates a problem we don't have" umm..... I'm not sure if that makes sense. so many great moments during this interview.
Ghengra Go'Rok (6 years ago)
man, that mayor really needs to learn how to express himself, take some diction classes or something...
Blissmonkey (6 years ago)
I prefer Jimmy appearing on TYT. I like the show, but it doesn't compare to his participation on the main show.
