Police in London arrested WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange on Thursday, and now he'll fight extradition to the U.S., Jimmy Kimmel said on Thursday's Kimmel Live. "Assange was charged by the Justice Department with conspiring to hack into U.S. government computers. If convicted, he faces up to four years as Trump's next secretary of Homeland Security." He showed video of Assange's arrest. "Why he looks like Tom Hanks in Castaway, we don't know," he said. "He was living in an embassy, he was not stuck on a deserted island. He had access to grooming tools."

"Because everything is totally weird now, Julian Assange's friend Pamela Anderson lashed out on Twitter today," Kimmel said. Anderson, 51 — who may or may not have been romantically involved with Assange, USA Today notes — slammed Ecuador for withdrawing Assange's asylum, said "America's bitch" Britain arrested Assange to create a diversion from its "idiotic" Brexit mess, and called President Trump "selfish and cruel" and a "toxic coward."
