Jimmy Kimmel: 'Donald Trump Loves Kim Jong Un More Than Melania'

The host zinged the president's cozy pen pal correspondence with the North Korean dictator and his Sharpie-written letters to Justin Trudeau.

Whether President Donald Trump is sending a note to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in silver Sharpie or gushing over his written correspondences with North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un, the U.S. leader has shown himself to be quite the pen pal.

Maybe too much so, Jimmy Kimmel suggested on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Monday. Trump rhapsodized recently over a “beautiful” three-page letter he received from Kim and claimed on Saturday that the missive included an apology for North Korea’s recent testing of short-range missiles. North Korea had said the launches were a warning to the United States and South Korea.

Kimmel wasn’t buying the apology but he was convinced of Trump’s devotion to the hermit kingdom honcho.

“It’s like he met a friend at dictator camp and now he wants to have a sleepover,” the host quipped.

Kimmel asked viewers to try to imagine Trump declaring similar affection to his wife, Melania ― and, well, it’s difficult.
