Jimmy Kimmel has made Donald Trump the butt of many jokes during the last 18 months. But now that Trump is officially the president, some may be wondering whether or not Kimmel will continue to go after him.
The answer is a definite yes.
On Friday night’s show, following Trump’s inauguration, Kimmel took his own oath — to continue making fun of Trump throughout his presidency.
“You think I’m not going to grab this pumpkin by the guts and shake it until the seeds come out?” he asked the audience.
He also said that no matter what side of the aisle you’re on, even if you’re in Trump’s family, “deep down, somewhere in your soul, you know that there is something very unusual about the fact that you voted for a man who used to sell steaks at the Sharper Image. There’s something strange about the fact that we have a president who body slammed Vince McMahon at WrestleMania 23.”
Kimmel added that there are two things that he holds sacred when it comes to his program, “No. 1, making kids cry on Halloween. That’s No. 1. And, No. 2, but a close No. 2, is poking fun at our leaders.”
