Of Course Jimmy Kimmel Had A Joke About President Trump In His Opening Monologue At Oscars
Jimmy Kimmel made several jokes about President Trump in his monologue at the beginning of the Academy Awards Sunday night.
“I want to say thank you to President Trump,” Kimmel said. “Remember last year when it seemed like the Oscars were racist?”
“This is being watched live by millions of people in 225 countries that now hate us.”
“In Hollywood, we don’t discriminate against people based on what country they come from. We discriminate by age and weight.”
