Jimmy Kimmel used his first monologue of 2018 to slam Donald Trump’s many, many tweets posted Tuesday.
Kimmel, 50, pointed out that “maniac” Trump, 71, had tweeted eight times before 10 a.m., referencing one tweet in particular that saw the president issue a threat to Kim Jong-un.
The host of the late night show struggled to hold it together as he read out Trump’s tweet to the North Korea dictator, with the message warning Jong-un that his nuclear button was “much bigger and more powerful than his.”
Kimmel laughed, “Happy New Year, everybody! We have two maniacs with nuclear warheads bragging about who has the bigger button.”
Trump’s comments come after Jong-un said in a televised speech Monday: “The entire United States is within range of our nuclear weapons, and a nuclear button is always on my desk. This is reality, not a threat.”
Not ending the Trump-bashing there, the presenter also spoke about one of the president’s earlier tweets in which he confirmed there were no deaths in commercial aviation last year.
The post, which was ridiculed across social media, saw Trump announce that 2017 was “the best and safest year on record.”
However, Kimmel pointed out that the last death from commercial aviation was, in fact, back in 2009.
Kimmel explained, before adding that it was still only January 2: “What’s funny is he clearly didn’t read the report, which was about commercial aviation around the world. I don’t know if he thinks he’s president of the world now.”
“Thank you, President Trump, for being so effective you actually went back in time to improve flight safety. What won’t this man take credit for?”
