Jimmy Kimmel Spoofs Trump's Supreme Court Nomination Event: 'You're Hired!'
The late night comics had a field day with Trump's recent actions.
Following Trump’s prime time announcement of his Supreme Court nominee, Neil Gorsuch, late night jokester Jimmy Kimmel spoofed the whole spectacle.
“I have been making a lot of jokes about this presidency becoming a reality show," the host said on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tuesday night. "I didn’t know that this reality show would become a reality.”
Kimmel then said that Trump “Ryan Seacrest-ed his choice for Supreme Court” by describing how it came down to Gorsuch and Pennsylvania Judge Thomas Hardiman as his pick.
Kimmel then crafted a skit where he spoofed the prime time announcement where he took an old clip of Celebrity Apprentice and fired the likes of Lil John, Meat Loaf, Gary Busey, and hired Gorsuch.
Trump has been giving the late night comics material with his antics and policies.
Jon Stewart made a surprise appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to poke fun at Trump’s rhetoric, clothing, and his performance in his first days as president.
Stewart came on to blast Trump’s executive orders by mocking him.
"I, Donald J. Trump, have instructed my staff to speak only in bulls***," Stewart gagged as he read from a pretend executive order. “Bulls***, all the time. Immersion. It’s the only way to be fluent."
He then poked fun at Trump’s pomposity, saying: “I Donald J. Trump — want — no, deserve — not just your respect but your adoration. Parades with the tanks and the synchronized dancing. And why can’t they train 10,000 doves to spell out Trump in the clouds? How hard can it be? They’re already flying!"
On Stewart’s old show, The Daily Show, host Trevor Noah said Trump "made the West Wing feel less like an office and more like Walmart on Black Friday.”
The South African comedian then blasted the president’s immigration travel ban and the firing of Attorney General Sally Yates.
