The burn is strong with Matt Jones


In case you missed it, Matt Jones was on fire yesterday at Fancy Farm.

Being the generous guy he is, Matt left no one out in his speech at Fancy Farm. He took no prisoners: including Mitch McConnell, guberanatorial candidates Matt Bevin and Jack Conway, Rand Paul, Richie Farmer, Rick Pitino, Allison Lundergan-Grimes, and even the Governor himself. With his signature hand moves, he delivered burn after burn.

Matt had numerous jokes for his #1 fan McConnell, including my personal favorite around the 9-minute mark:

“I hear that after Mitch speaks he leaves. So when he leaves, you might have 99 problems, but a Mitch ain’t one.” 

Be sure to pause at the 3:22 mark for McConnell’s death ray stare at Matt.

KSR posted it earlier, but here is the video of Matt’s interview with KET before the event. Matt talks about why he doesn’t consider himself a journalist, the need to discourage long-winded callers and not making his mom mad during his speech.

Great job, Matt! I can’t wait for the gubernatorial debate on KSR, hopefully their will be more jokes about Conway’s perfect coif and Bevin’s educational pursuits.
