Late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel tore into President Donald Trump’s “total disaster” of a presidency Tuesday night, and claimed that the “smug, annoying liberals” were right about not wanting him in office.
On his ABC show, “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” the host compared the Trump administration to a wheelless wagon “hurtling through space,” but acknowledged how Trump managed to gain so much support during the 2016 presidential election, which led him to be elected.
“You were unhappy with the way things were going,” Kimmel said, apparently addressing those who voted for Trump. “You wanted someone to come in and shake things up. You didn’t want business as usual. And then this guy shows up riding down a golden escalator. He’s not a part of the political establishment, in fact, he’s the opposite of that. Let’s roll the dice. Let him get in there and run the country like a business.”
Kimmel later claimed that Trump supporters “picked the wrong guy,” and noted the varying issues that have cropped up since Trump took office in January, which included the Muslim ban, the transgender military ban, and the Kim Jong un scofflaw.
“He is, by every reasonable account — and I’m using his own favorite words here — a ‘total disaster,'” Kimmel said.
Continuing to address Trump supporters, Kimmel added, “But you’ve been trying to ignore it, because you don’t want to admit that these smug, annoying liberals were right. It’s the last thing you want to do. But the truth is — and deep down you know you made a mistake, you know this is true — you made a mistake. You picked the wrong guy.”
“Enough is enough,” Kimmel said.
