Jimmy Kimmel Has The Best Reaction To ‘Irrational’ Trump-Kanye Meeting
On Thursday night, ABC host Jimmy Kimmel mocked rapper Kanye West and President Trump for their meeting in the Oval Office earlier in the day, saying their “irrational conversation was typical of ‘people wearing hospital bracelets.”
The “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host told his audience that he had no idea why they decided to allow cameras into the highly-anticipated meeting to capture the surreal interaction.
“Not only was this a crazy conversation for this White House, this is the kind of conversation that would typically be held between people wearing hospital bracelets.”
During his meeting with Trump, Kanye descended into a 10-minute uninterrupted tirade laced with profanity.
The topics discussed by the rapper included his mental health issues, the prison system and his past call for the abolishment of the 13th Amendment.
Kanye also praised the “hero’s journey” Trump is on right now.
“He might not have thought he’d have a crazy motherf—-r like Kanye running up support,” West said.
Kimmel said that Trump sat quietly while “an irrational madman rants and raves at him.”
The comedian showed a clip featuring thought bubbles jokingly referring to what Trump might have been thinking.
“Now he knows how we feel every morning when we wake up to him,” Kimmel joked, comparing the interaction with Tom Hanks’s character talking to Wilson the volleyball in the film “Cast Away.”
“It’s like Trump was sitting across from his own Twitter account come to life,” Kimmel added.
