jokingly thanked Donald Trump
for watching his show after it was revealed that the former president
attempted to have the Justice Department
investigate late-night comedy
“Can you believe it? President Snowflake asked the authorities to come in and stop us from mocking him,” Kimmel said.
According to The Daily Beast, Trump requested an investigation
into “Saturday Night Live
,” Kimmel’s show, and other comedy shows that mocked him.
“He can't take a joke,” Kimmel said. “He can make one, and he's made several: Eric, Ivanka, Don Jr.
But he can't take a joke.”
Trump, who used to stay up late watching the shows and rage-tweeting about them, denied the report.
