Jimmy Kimmel Counters Donald Trump’s "Weird" Claims About Him

11 July, 2018, 13:08 | Author: Dominic Spencer

The ABC late-night comedian used his monologue Monday to deny a freakish story Trump told his fans at a rally last month, alleging Kimmel excitedly greeted him outside his studio when the former "Apprentice" host visited "Jimmy Kimmel Live" before the 2016 election.

Speaking to a raucous crowd in West Columbia on June 25, Mr. Trump claimed that during his 2016 presidential campaign, "no talent" Mr. Kimmel waited outside his studio for Mr. Trump to arrive and then opened his auto door for him. "That's true. That story is exactly true as his was". I don't even think he'd deny it, ' he told the crowd at the SC rally on June 26. No talent, but I go to his studio to do a shot, to do a thing.

During a rally for South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, Trump called Stephen Colbert a "low life", Jimmy Fallon a "lost soul", and Kimmel "terrible". He would stand outside on the sidewalk waiting for me - 'Oh, here he comes.

"But he's waitng for me, two or three times I did his show before this - now I wouldn't do his show, guy's bad - but I do his show and he's standing out on Hollywood -- whatever -- Boulevard", Trump said. "A guy with potential". But unlike Colbert and Fallon, Kimmel had yet to respond. Kimmel laughed. "You know, it's a amusing thing". "Including you, I do it for nobody".

The POTUS even said that the whole thing took place outside Kimmel's studio on Hollywood Boulevard, which is something that the talk show host was, once again, quick to deny.

He then added that opening the door for Trump would have never happened.

Kimmel finished the segment by mocking Trump, saying that what really happened that night was that "Trump showed up one night outside our show, banging on the backstage door". And he was screaming that he needed to use the bathroom.

"A couple days into the trip, the guy who had the phone gets a text from my wife, and I was anxious", Kimmel explained. "So Donald took a look around, he stuffed the remainder chicken in his jacket, he dropped his trousers... he did his business in the bucket".

During Monday night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Back in March, Kimmel even admitted to Oprah Winfrey that his foray into politics may have hurt his bottom line.

The host then explained how he never greets guests before the show because he prefers to do so on camera, which makes sense.
