‘Like Burger And Hair Spray’: Jimmy Kimmel Lacerates Trump Over Administration’s High Turnover
Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday night made fun of President Donald Trump for the constant turnover in his administration, saying Trump goes through cabinet members “like he goes through cheeseburgers and Aqua Net.” Last week, his administration fired the secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, and Andrew McCabe, former deputy director of the F.B.I.
“Last week he fired his body man, his personal assistant and his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson,” Kimmel said during his show’s monologue.
“Trump goes through cabinet members like he goes through cheeseburgers and Aqua Net: fast,” Kimmel said.
“If you’re Mike Pompeo, do you even do anything to your new office when you move in? Do you put up pictures or do you just live out of a banker’s box so you can gather yourself when it’s time to go?” he added, referring to Trump’s pick to replace Tillerson.
He then played a parody orientation video for incoming cabinet members, which was intercut with clips of Trump firing people on “The Apprentice.”
“Welcome to President Donald J. Trump’s cabinet,” the video host said. “Your job here will last anywhere from three days to 12 weeks, depending upon the president’s golf score.”
In addition to Tillerson’s ouster last week, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is reportedly set to depart the Trump administration.
Those exits came roughly two weeks after Gary Cohn, Trump’s top economic adviser, resigned amid a dispute with the president over trade policy. Larry Kudlow has been named Cohn’s replacement.
Many have speculated that Veteran Affairs Secretary David Shulkin could be next to go after an inspector general report found he misspent taxpayer money on lavish travel for himself and his wife. In addition, he has reportedly sought permission to root out those in his department who have attempted to undermine him.
