Late Night Tackles President Trump
Late last week, the White House said it will not make White House visitor logs public, a reversal of former President Barack Obama's stab at transparency. "Which I'm sure is fine," Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live. "It's like when your teenage son borrows your laptop and when you get it back, he cleared the browser history. Not suspicious at all."
"But you have to wonder if Trump supporters are concerned about this, or really about anything he does," Kimmel said. "He does a lot of interesting things, and no one seems to mind, so we went out on the street this afternoon and we asked people who identified themselves as pro-Trump about a list of individuals we told them visited the White House. Now, none of these individuals are on the White House visitor logs, we assume, but that didn't stop people from weighing in" in his new "Lie-Witness News" segment.
As with all of Kimmel's person-on-the-street interviews, it's the eagerness to commit to excusing ridiculous things in great detail that makes you cringe for humanity. So kudos to the last guy for having no opinion on Trump allowing John Wilkes Booth to sleep in the Lincoln Bedroom. Peter Weber
