Jimmy Kimmel is calling out Trump’s lies again. And he’s especially irritated because this time Trump lied about him personally. So he turned the tables on Trump in the best way possible.
On Monday night, ABC’s late-night host Jimmy Kimmel busted Donald Trump for one of his recent lies, saying that “it’s weird to hear him tell a lie that specifically involves you.”
At a recent rally in South Carolina, Trump told a bogus story about Kimmel. Trump claimed that Kimmel went out of his way one time to wait for Trump outside of the studio when Trump showed up to make an appearance on his show. Trump said that Kimmel had never done that for any other guest. And he basically said that Kimmel bent over backwards to kiss his ass.
After playing a clip of Trump making these false claims, Kimmel said, “That never happened. Then he added, “It’s a funny thing. Even the people who like the president know he makes things up. But still, it’s weird to hear him tell a lie that specifically involves you.”
Kimmel explained that not only did he not wait to meet Trump outside of the building. He also never greeted him in his dressing room.
“I like to greet the guests on stage,” he said. “I feel dumb saying hello to them and saying hello again 10 minutes later. But I digress — none of that actually happened.”
Kimmel finished the segment by turning the tables and using Trump’s tactics against him. He told an outrageous story about Trump that he said was just as true as the story Trump told about him.
Kimmel hilariously said that the real story was that “Trump showed up one night outside our show, banging on the backstage door. It was 2007. He had a half-finished bucket of chicken under his arm.”
“And he was screaming that he needed to use the bathroom. But unfortunately, there was someone in the bathroom,” Kimmel said. “I believe it was Zach Braff who was in the bathroom. So Donald took a look around, he stuffed the remainder of the chicken in his jacket, he dropped his pants, he did his business in the bucket. That’s true — that story is exactly as true as his was.”
