During a podcast interview last week, the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host said that he lost about half his fans when he started to go after Trump ― something the ex-president reveled in… and exaggerated… during the rally.
“I saw Jimmy Kimmel said that his show’s practically dead because nobody that likes Trump will watch,” Trump crowed. “And guess what? That turned out to be a majority of the people. The show is dead and so are the other ones!”
“That’s right,” Kimmel mocked. “Our show is dead. Our show is so dead he’s going to bury it next to his ex-wife at one of his golf courses.”
But Kimmel didn’t stop there.
“I’ll tell you what’s dead,” he added. “All those endangered animals your chinless son shot, that’s what’s dead.”
Kimmel also said that his show was about to mark its 20th anniversary.
“You got kicked out after four, okay?” he said. “I’m on television. You’re on the toilet at your golf club screaming at yours.”
