Frequently when Donald Trump appears on a talk show, the host takes it easy on him. Most want to make sure he returns and gives them a ratings boost, so they pitch softballs to him and try to get on his good side.
But last night Jimmy Kimmel said to hell with all the deference and mocked Trump to his face. And it was freaking awesome!
In Kimmel’s introduction of the GOP frontrunner, he noted:
“We know Donald Trump as a businessman, author, and reality show star. But our children will know him as the president who blew up the moon for being a loser.”
Then Kimmel lit into Trump about his comments on Mexican immigrants and his plan to ban all Muslims from entering the United States:
“Isn’t it un-American and wrong to discriminate against people based on their religion?”
Trump admitted that it was wrong to do so, but attempted to minimize his idea by claiming it would only be for “a little bit.”
But the highlight of the evening was when Kimmel told Trump he and his writers had penned a Dr. Seuss-inspired book for the Donald entitled, “Winners Aren’t Losers,” and then Kimmel read some of the book:
“Winners aren’t losers.
They’re winners like me.
A loser’s a loser.
Which one will you be?
“Winners do deals and winners get rich,
While sad little losers just sit there and bitch.
The dog is a loser, and frankly, I pity it.
This dog did bad deals. This dog is an idiot.
“And poor Mr. Bear, he must feel like a loser,
Valeting that 2006 PT Cruiser.
“This lobster’s a loser, throw him in the pot.
I like a lobster who doesn’t get caught.
“Those losers are failures who get nothing done.
Just do what I do and you’ll be No. 1.
“Now, here are some frogs I do not like at all.
We must kick these frogs out and then build a wall.
“Oh the place you’ll go, on your yacht, on your plane,
With your suits from Milan and your wives from Ukraine.
“Oh the buildings you’ll build, oh the wealth you’ll amass,
All the people around you all kissing your ass.
“There are two kinds of people, which one will you be?
“A loser like them?
“Or a winner like me?”
I’m starting to get the sense that even Trump is aware most of us are laughing at him, not following behind him like lemmings. Lemmings are losers because they just jump right off the cliff for no reason.
You Have Gotta Watch This!
