Jimmy Kimmel has come up with a creative way to mock Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.). His latest antics didn't even require a written sketch. He simply used her own videos and remarks against her.

On Thursday, November 11, Kimmel took aim at Boebert describing her as an "idiot" who "wears glasses to make it look like she can read." The late-night talk show host also criticized the videos Boebert has a tendency to post.

"She is apparently not a fan of me or our show," the host explained, acknowledging that his remark was "obviously a joke." Kimmel added, "Her videos are so much dumber than stepmother porn."

"But some of these videos that she makes are so unbelievably over the top, it's hard to believe this person exists," he continued. "They seem like sketches from Saturday Night Live."

To make matters worse, apparently, others agreed. According to HuffPost, Kimmel's team actually shared the videos with random individuals on the streets to get their reactions. The social experiment further proved how bizarre Boebert's videos are because the viewers even assumed the videos were SNL sketches and parodies. To make their inquiry more believable, Kimmel's team also asked the viewers if SNL had "gone too far."

The latest version of Kimmel's "Lie Witness News" segment shoiiafws how viewers responded:

Insurrectionists Face Prison, Trump Salutes Troops, Texas Mask Controversy & Is Lauren Boebert Real? youtu.be

Needless to say, viewers were shocked to learn that the videos were not SNL parodies, but actual videos Boebert had shared. In fact, one man said, "So she didn't mean it as comedy at all? Oh wow!"

Kimmel's fiery response comes just days after Boebert tweeted and called him a "sexist pig." Last weekend, the Republican lawmaker tweeted a brief, misleading clip of the late-night talk show host with a caption that read, "Good morning. [Jimmy Kimmel] is a sexist pig. Have a great day!"

Per The Daily Beast:

"In the video, Boebert could be seen demanding a 'full investigation into just how many puppies were eaten alive on Fauci's watch' followed by Jimmy Kimmel joking that every time he hears her speak he expects it to 'turn into stepmother porn.'"
