Jimmy Kimmel says he would prefer a chimpanzee as president over Trump

Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday that he would rather have a chimpanzee occupying the Oval Office than President Trump.

The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host called Trump a “liar” for declaring that he meant to say “wouldn’t” instead of “would” during Monday’s joint press conference with Vladimir Putin.

Kimmel mocked Trump’s correction, “I have to say, when you said, ‘I don’t see any reason why it would be Russia,’ for a minute there it almost seemed like you were hiding something from us… like there was something Putin knew about you that you wanted him to keep quiet.”

Kimmel even mocked First Lady Melania Trump as the person who, he assumed, came up with the strategy to claim the president simply misspoke.

“She hates him the most,” Kimmel said.

“I would rather we had a chimpanzee as president of the United States. At least with a chimp there would be somebody to eat the bugs out of Rudy Giuliani’s hair,” Kimmel said.
