Jimmy Kimmel feuded with President Donald Trump and his son over the weekend about whether his political jokes were funny, and the president then demanded “equal time” to defend himself, and the late-night host kept at it Monday night.
It’s “an interesting question,” Kimmel said on Monday. “Especially since the president tweeted this demand for equal time after watching Fox & Friends breathlessly drool about how great he is for three hours straight.”
He then mocked the president for talking about how repetitive people can be and played footage of Trump saying the same phrases over and over again.
On Twitter, Kimmel responded to Trump’s, saying, “Excellent point Mr. President! You should quit that boring job – I’ll let you have my show ALL to yourself #MAGA.”
That got a quick response from Donald Trump Jr., who attacked Kimmel, attacked Kimmel about the “disgusting” allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Kimmel responded with the infamous “Access Hollywood” video in which Trump brags about assaulting women by grabbing them by the genitals.
Noting that Weinstein is “not the president” and “not particularly well-known outside of L.A. and New York,” Kimmel explained that Trump’s “insinuation was that we, as part of the biased left-wing propaganda machine, wouldn’t say anything about him because he’s a Democrat — never mind the thousands of jokes about Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton” that he has told over the years.
“People are pointing to the fact that Harvey Weinstein was a Clinton supporter, and listen, it’s true, I’m not defending Hillary Clinton,” Kimmel said. “Fact is, her campaign did take money from a high-profile man who has been accused of sexual harassment multiple times.”
However, he noted that Clinton has a history of taking money from an alleged rapist and notorious sexual harasser: Donald Trump. Trump had given money to her U.S. Senate race.
“Next time you’re defending your father and you think it’s a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly accused sexual predator, don’t. It doesn’t help,” Kimmel told Trump Jr.
He then promised his audience a joke about Weinstein:
“What’s the difference between Harvey Weinstein and the Pillsbury Doughboy? When the Pillsbury Doughboy offers you a roll, he doesn’t ask you to watch him take a shower for it,” he said.
Trump has figured out how to get taxpayers to renovate one of his golf courses: MSNBC panel
President Donald Trump has figured out how to have taxpayers pay to renovate his Trump National Doral Miami golf course, according to an analysis by MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle.
"Before setting himself on fire on Ukraine yesterday, Mick Mulvaney came into the White House briefing room to break to the nation the fact the that the Trump Doral golf resort turns out to be -- in his estimation, organically, just sitting there -- the best possible place to have a G-7 Summit of world leaders," MSNBC's Brian Williams reported. "That was provision number one. There’s no better place that we can find. Number two was, the president will not profit from said G-7."
Bill Maher reveals plan to ‘bribe’ Trump with one billion dollars — for him to leave office
The Constitution has two mechanisms to remove President Donald Trump from office prior to his term ending on January 20, 2021: impeachment and the 25th Amendment.
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher noted that Trump could also choose to resign.
Maher waved around a $1 million check that he said he would give to Trump to quit.
He said he also knew 1,000 people who would do the same -- which would land Trump over $1 billion.
Maher said even poor people would pawn their wedding rings to add to the pot.
Trump can’t fire Mulvaney because nobody else wants to be his chief of staff: report
White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will likely stay on at the White House despite his public confession of a quid pro quo in the Ukraine scandal at the center of the impeachment inquiry, The New York Times reported Friday.
"But Mr. Mulvaney’s job has been anything but normal since the news conference on Thursday at which he seemingly undermined the Trump administration’s strategy for avoiding impeachment by acknowledging that Mr. Trump had sought a quid pro quo for providing Ukraine with American aid," the newspaper reported. "In the chaotic aftermath, the president’s Republican allies are questioning Mr. Mulvaney’s savvy and intelligence even as the Trump campaign is defiantly turning one of his lines from the news conference into a T-shirt."
