Jimmy Kimmel mocks Trump and Michael Flynn's 'insane and dumb' coup fantasies

Jimmy Kimmel went to the beach over Memorial Day weekend, but he hopes "you remembered to remember what Memorial Day is about — those who gave their lives for our country," he said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live. It was a mixed bag for politicians. Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), for example, was "goofed" into retweeting a photo of Lee Harvey Oswald by a user who then changed names to "Matt Gaetz is a Pedo," Kimmel said. "He got Mattfished."

Vice President Kamala Harris, meanwhile, "took some unfriendly fire from some of those who do not enjoy her work," Kimmel said. "Conservatives, they really cranked the fake-outrage knob up to 11 after this tweet: She wrote, 'Enjoy the long weekend.' Of course, the MAGAverse was furious about this." He showed some examples. "It is amazing these people still appear in public after what went on for four years," he marveled.
