Last week, Jimmy Kimmel said in an interview that after Donald Trump was on his late-night show, he lost half of his fan base — and he threatened to quit when ABC urged him to turn it down.
Well, it looks like Trump captured the comments and used them to go after the presenter on “one of his comedy tours,” Kimmel said.
The former president had previously told a crowd of protesters in Pennsylvania that Kimmel’s performance was “actually dead” because his supporters would not watch it. “And that turns out to be the majority of people,” Trump said. “The show is dead and so are the others.”
“Yes, our show is dead,” Kimmel replied with a laugh before demonstrating how brutal his jokes about the former president can really be. “Our gig was so dead he would bury it next to his ex-wife at one of his golf courses.”
“You know what died?” he asks. “I will tell you what is dead. All the endangered animals his chinless son shot. That’s what died.”
“You know what died?” Kimmel added. “The look in your wife’s eyes when you beg her to have sex on your birthday.”
“And I would say, in January, our program will last 20 years,” he continued. “You were kicked out after four hours. I’m on television, you’re going to the bathroom at your golf club and shouting at you.”
