- Jimmy Kimmel mocked and questioned President Trump’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in his monologue Tuesday night.
- “Usually when Trump signs an agreement with a foreigner, it’s a prenup,” Kimmel joked.
Jimmy Kimmel opened his “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” monologue on Tuesday night by laying into President Trump over his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
“It has been an Un-precidented 24 hours for the United States and North Korea as our president, Donald Trump, met with his favourite Little Rocket Man,” Kimmel started out. “A lot of pundits think it was a mistake to meet with an unstable dictator, but Kim Jong Un said, ‘You know what? I’m going to do it anyway.'”
Kimmel noted that Trump told the press he had formed a “special bond” with Kim after meeting with the North Korean leader for only 38 minutes. The host added: “That’s fast. His dentures take longer to bond than that.”
“Trump claims he got North Korea to commit to destroying a missile testing site, and this is a quote, he said ‘We didn’t put it in the agreement because we didn’t have time,'” Kimmel continued. “Usually when Trump signs an agreement with a foreigner, it’s a prenup. And that’s all in writing.”
Kimmel then questioned the potential outcomes of the summit, suggesting that the meeting would cause Kim to do “nothing differently.”
“Trump wanted to make it look like he did something big, whether he did something big or not. He was not leaving the summit without claiming he made a deal,” Kimmel said. “So he sets the meeting, he has this sit-down, he hears what he wants to hear – blah, blah, blah. As soon as the meeting’s over, he runs out, calls a press conference, declares victory, everyone goes home, Kim Jong Un does nothing differently at all, and we go back to our lives, too.”
Kimmel show personality Guillermo Rodriguez and the host proceeded to sit down for a mock summit to sign their own version of the “friendship agreement” that Trump and Kim signed.
