Late Night Tackles President Trump
On Wednesday, Wired reported that White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Trump's son in law, registered to vote in New York as a woman, and did not list a political affiliation. "That's right, he's not a Democrat or a Republican, he's just an independent woman," Jimmy Kimmel quipped on Wednesday's Kimmel Live. Kushner is also registered in New Jersey as "gender unknown," which means Trump wouldn't let him serve in the military, Kimmel said. "But how good is that? I mean, Jared Kushner registered to vote as woman. And he used a private email server for White House business — I say Lock Her Up!"
Before showing his "Drunk Donald Trump" segment — in which a slowed-down Trump gawked at the cost of a new White House fence — Kimmel noted that Trump unveiled his tax plan earlier in the day. "I'm sorry, you shouldn't be able to release a tax plan until you've released a tax return," he said.
Kimmel also returned to a topic dear to his heart. Between the loss of his candidate in the Alabama GOP Senate primary "and the failed Graham-Cassidy health-care bill, it has been a bad week for Donald Trump," he said. "But he's not one to admit defeat. He was full of both B and S today at the White House," claiming he had the votes for Graham-Cassidy but that the GOP couldn't hold the vote because a senator who's not in the hospital was hospitalized. "So just to recap, Mr. President, there was no senator in the hospital, you didn't have the votes, the bill didn't pass, and you're bad at math," Kimmel said. Watch below Peter Weber
