What began as a Jimmy Kimmel-sponsored prank at a political rally and a Twitter war has resulted in an informal invite to either a Southern fist fight with a potential Senator or religious discussion over Panda Express.
Moore took issue with Kimmel's show sending a comedian to crash a talk Moore was giving at a south Alabama church Wednesday night.
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. There is no one I would rather fight than you.
"If you're open to it, when we sit down, I will share with you what I learned at my church", Kimmel said.
"I accept that invitation".
Kimmel also explained what had initially sparked Moore's outrage. Kimmel promised to come down to the mall in Gadston, Alabama "with a team of high school cheerleaders" and said he's a Christian too: "At my church, forcing yourself on underage girls is a no-no".
Jake Byrd, a frequent character on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" attended a church event in Alabama, featuring Moore, but was kicked out for his overly enthusiastic behavior.
"I'll wear a Girl Scout uniform so you can have something to get excited about.""I will put my Christian values aside just for you and for that fight".
Kimmel later noted that if the two were to engage in fisticuffs, he would donate any ticket proceeds to charity.
Many national Republicans have abandoned Moore after multiple women accused him of inappropriate sexual conduct when they were as young as 14. Alright, tough guy, with your little pistol?
An America First Polices survey conducted earlier in November showed Jones leading Moore by eight points.
