Jimmy Kimmel: Trump Is a Reality Show Host Who Can’t Accept Reality


Welcome to Best of Late Night, a rundown of the previous night’s highlights that lets you sleep — and lets us get paid to watch comedy. We’re all stuck at home at the moment, so here are the 50 best movies on Netflix right now.

President Trump’s refusal to concede the election to Joe Biden led the late-night shows on Tuesday, with hosts frustrated by Republicans like Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, and William Barr, the attorney general, who have supported Trump’s unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud.

“Republicans are handling the president with kid gloves because those are the only gloves that fit him,” Jimmy Kimmel joked.

“Here’s a question: Are we sure Donald Trump isn’t just stuck in a White House bathtub and too embarrassed to call for help?” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“Oh, MAGA fans rejoice because Bill Barr is on the case. Yes, the same Bill Barr who investigated Obama and found nothing, with the same Department of Justice that investigated Hillary and found nothing. So if you’re looking to find nothing, you know the man to call.” — TREVOR NOAH

“Oh, and looks like Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham are also partnering with Trump to undermine the election, which is a terrible idea, but I would love to see these three together in a heist movie.” — TREVOR NOAH

“We’re basically ignoring the president of the United States like he’s a crazy guy on a subway platform. He’s ranting and raving, we just raise the volume on our AirPods and hope he doesn’t shove us into an oncoming train.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“But even with all this tension, Trump has not lost his sense of humor. For instance, this morning he tweeted, ‘We will win!’ Which is funny. We have a reality show host who will not accept reality.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“The president has gone from firing people on reality TV to denying the reality that he’s fired.” — JIMMY FALLON

“Should our entire political system be arranged to salve the wounded feelings of the guy who lost? You never saw Truman hold up a newspaper that said, ‘Dewey defeats Truman: Let him have this one for a few weeks, he needs it.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT

“Trump’s like the guy who puts 20 plays of ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ on the jukebox before he leaves the diner.” — JIMMY KIMMEL

“But Trump’s staff is trying to help him move on. He spent the day hanging Pier 1 signs all over the White House that say, ‘Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.’” — JIMMY FALLON

“Dude, I would say the writing’s on the wall, but you never built one.” — SETH MEYERS

“Trump’s like the guy who knows he’s broke and still has the waiter run his credit card 10 more times.” — JIMMY FALLON

“I mean, he wants to cling onto power as long as he can — and also, golfing isn’t as much fun when you’re not missing work to do it.” — TREVOR NOAH

“Yep, Trump just doesn’t know when it’s time to pack it in. I mean, even the creators of ‘The Walking Dead’ are like, ‘Enough already.’” — JIMMY FALLON

Lenny Kravitz popped by Tuesday’s “Daily Show” to talk about his new memoir, “Let Love Rule.”
