Jimmy Kimmel mocked President Donald Trump’s increasingly desperate tweets, as he finds himself under intense legal pressure — and angry as ever at late-night comedians.
Trump complained bitterly that NBC’s “Saturday Night Live,” which he hosted in the early days of his presidential campaign, had treated him unfairly with a send-up of the holiday classic, “It’s A Wonderful Life.”
“It has been a terrible holiday season for him,” Kimmel said. “He’s facing multiple criminal investigations, he’s losing cabinet members, he lost the House and, on top of everything else, the DNA tests he ordered came back, and Eric and Don Jr. … are his.”
“He’s so frustrated right now,” he added, “he wants to build that wall just to bang his head against it.”
Kimmel said the president’s feeble threats against SNL showed just how toothless he was against enemies both foreign and domestic.
“Remember when he was running for president and he said he was going to come up with a plan to stop ISIS in 30 days?” Kimmel said. “We’re two years in, he can’t even stop ‘Saturday Night Live,’ never mind ISIS.”
