Jimmy Kimmel: Trump’s First Stormy Daniels Tweet Is ‘Absolutely Nuts’
“Even the idea that Trump is scrolling — the president is scrolling through Twitter looking for things to retweet is nuts.”
There is little in this world that President Donald Trump has not tweeted about. And on Wednesday morning, he added one more thing to that list: Stormy Daniels.
Yes, Trump tweeted about the porn star with whom he allegedly had an affair — and then paid $130,000 to stay quiet — for the very first time today after her she and her lawyer released a forensic sketch of the man she says threatened her on Trump’s behalf several years ago.
Jimmy Kimmel shared the tweet in question on Wednesday night, in which Trump retweeted the conspiracy theory that the man is actually Daniels’ ex-boyfriend, with the message, “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”
“Turns out this meme came from a supporter of his in Scotland, Shenna Fox, she's a fanatical Trump fan,” Kimmel revealed. “Believe it or not she is actually guilty of a con job herself. Last year she was convicted of stealing money from her church choir to pay for a trip to meet Trump in New York. And this is who he's retweeting, someone he should probably have a restraining order against.”
“Even the idea that Trump is scrolling — the president is scrolling through Twitter looking for things to retweet is nuts. It is absolutely nuts!” the host added. “Reportedly his advisers tried to convince him that he would only make things worse if he addressed this on Twitter. But you know that's like telling a 4-year-old with a squirt gun not to shoot you with it. You’re going to get wet.”
After that, Kimmel brought out a third-grader to explain “fake news” to the president.
