Jimmy Kimmel Fires Back At Trump With 5 Brutal Parting Words For His Tombstone

The late-night host responded to the former president's latest angry attack.

Jimmy Kimmel on Monday night admitted that he’s thrilled when Donald Trump attacks him by name.

“What he doesn’t realize is that I love this,” Kimmel said during his monologue on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

The former president railed against Kimmel in a social media post during the Oscars broadcast earlier those month, leading to a viral moment when Kimmel, who was hosting the show, responded in real time from the stage.

Isn’t it past your jail time?” Kimmel said to a live TV audience of nearly 20 million.

That stung Trump enough that he raged against Kimmel some more during a rambling Fox News interview over the weekend in which he called Kimmel “not a talented guy,” “a lousy host” and “dumber than I thought.”

Kimmel on Monday urged the ex-president to keep it coming.

“I love that this bothered him so much,” he said, and later rolled footage of the Oscars audience, including actor Margot Robbie, laughing at the Trump joke.

“Barbie was laughing at you,” Kimmel said, noting that “past your jail time” is already appearing on shirts, cups and other merch, is being put on billboards, and is used in graffiti outside Trump Tower in New York.

The former president on Sunday said that Kimmel should “keep his mouth shut.”

“Imagine him telling anyone they should’ve kept their mouth shut?” Kimmel said. “That should be on his tombstone: ‘Should’ve kept his mouth shut.’”

Kimmel then had a special challenge just for Trump.
