Jimmy Kimmel recaps Trump’s Oval Office speech, jokes he’s doing border fearmongering all wrong

Up until Tuesday, President Trump had used the Oval Office “exclusively for Kardashian meet-and-greets, but tonight he got very serious,” Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday’s Kimmel Live. “All the major networks covered this live, and for good reason: It was historic. Rarely does a president of the United States interrupt prime-time television to warn us about a completely made-up thing.” He showed a fabricated disclaimer the networks didn’t show before Trump’s speech to assuage their concerns about giving Trump a platform to lie to the public.

In his speech, Trump made clear “he does want us to believe there’s a crisis at the border besides the one he created,” Kimmel recapped. “He desperately wants us to be worried about the border,” but he’s going about it all wrong. Kimmel suggested warning people that chupacabras are flooding America via Tijuana “to eat our children and out Intagram. That’s how you get people fired up.” He doctored Trump’s speech to show how effective his idea would have been.

Kimmel reviewed a bit more of Trump’s address, noted “he almost looked sedated — it was like somebody slipped a Xanax into his McFlurry his afternoon” — and gave his less-than-stellar grade on the follow-up speech by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
