Jimmy Kimmel began his show on Wednesday by decrying President Donald Trump for abruptly firing former FBI director James Comey, a move that comes as the FBI is probing possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia during last year’s presidential election.
“I know a lot of you are here on vacation but it was yet another crazy day in the United States of America,” Kimmel began. “…Donald Trump — few hours ago — he fired James Comey, the director of the FBI.”
Kimmel added, “This is unbelievable. This is the kind of thing dictators do. This the kind of the thing reality TV hosts do. They fire someone every week.”
“One reason they gave, and this is really something, for firing Comey is because he mishandled the Hillary Clinton email situation, which would be hilarious because that would mean Trump fired James Comey for making him president,” Kimmel laughed to his audience on Tuesday. “He really does hate doing this job.”
