Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel
for “turning up the fake outrage dial to 11” in response to Vice President Kamala Harris
’s statement that people
should enjoy the long Memorial Day
“The MAGA-verse was furious about this,” Kimmel exclaimed, stunned.
But he saved some of his harshest words for Nikki Haley
, the former ambassador to the United Nations
under then-President Donald Trump
, who called Harris "unprofessional and unfit" for discussing the long weekend rather than U.S. soldiers killed in the line of duty.
“This is the same Nikki Haley who did nothing when Trump said he prefers war heroes
who aren’t captured,” Kimmel joked.
In 2015, Trump made fun of then-Sen. John McCain
(R-Ariz.) for spending six years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.
Haley has stated that if Trump runs for president again in 2024, she will back him up.
“It’s amazing that these people are still appearing in public after what has happened over the last four years,” Kimmel said.
