On Wednesday, late night host Jimmy Kimmel responded to recent tweet from President Trump.
On Tuesday, President Trump wrote, “I will be announcing THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR on Monday at 5:00 o’clock. Subjects will cover Dishonesty & Bad Reporting in various categories from the Fake News Media. Stay tuned!”
In addition to Trump’s tweet, a recent email sent out by the Trump campaign told supporters, “Americans are sick and tired of being lied to, insulted, and treated with outright condescension. That’s why President Trump is crowning the 2017 KING OF FAKE NEWS before the end of the year. There’s no point in pretending that some journalists are anything more than peddlers of falsehoods and liberal propaganda.”
During the show, Kimmel tore into Trump for his tweet.
“Sounds like somebody’s been in the White House laundry room eating Tide pods again because the president of the United States is — starting his own awards show for the media. The Stupid People’s Choice Awards are what they’re calling it.”
He continued, joking, “On one hand, you know, he loves awards and trophies. But will he be physically able to give a trophy to someone other than himself? I don’t think so.”
