A day after fiercely engaging Fox News — and frozen dinner heiress — Tucker Carlson cho sing praises to Putin the day before Putin ordered Russia to invade UkraineLate-night host Jimmy Kimmel returned to his show on Thursday and set his sights on another admirer of the diminutive dictator, Donald J. Trump.
“You know, it’s hard to do a comedy show when the war is going on, but here we are, more than 6,000 miles away, women and children fleeing Ukraine,” Kimmel began. his monologue. “Men, 18-60 years old, were asked to stay and fight and Russian forces continued their unprovoked attack — an attack that was received here, in the United States, like… I don’t remember anything like this, of which some of us seemed fine with it. You know, normally, we would band together in a situation like this — we would unite — but that was before The Great Divider cut us in half. ”
Of course, he’s referring to Trump. On Tuesday, the day before the Russian invasion, Trump called a conservative talk radio show co-hosted by an inexperienced sports pundit to call on Putin’s decision to declare parts independent Ukraine as his troops advanced into the country. a “genius” and “smart” move.
Nor did he change his tune after the invasion began.
Kimmel explained: “While Vladimir Putin is being condemned by leaders and ambassadors from every democratic country in the world, Donald Trump, our former president, has praised him, and of course is him,” explained Kimmel. “While bombs falling on a country did nothing to incite an invasion, Trump called Fox to say, ‘Never would have happened if I had taken power.”
That’s right, Trump called Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program — a xenophobic hate movement that has led Putin to apologize to Putin for months — to say about the Russian military strike, “This is not going to happen under During my administration… In fact, some people have said, why hasn’t this happened in the last four years, in our administration? And it’s not for a good reason, and I’ll explain that to you someday. ”
“It’s a particular kind of asshole to see innocent people run away from their homes and think, ‘How can I do this about me?’ but nobody does it better than Donald Trump,” Kimmel said.
“And it all happened because of a rigged election,” Trump argued to Ingraham, bringing it back to himself and his 2020 election as lies.
Then, at Mar-a-Lago last night, while Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was underway, Trump came to dinner to sing praises to Putin.
“He is taking over a country with $2 sanctions. I’d say that’s pretty smart,” Trump said. “He’s taking over a country – a big, big venue, really. A wonderful piece of land with so many people and just walking distance. He also talked about the invasion of an innocent country as a funny real estate deal, repeating that it wouldn’t have happened if he were still president.
“The idea that Trump could somehow anger Vladimir Putin is very rich, let’s just say it,” Kimmel stated.
He then shot a clip of 2018 where Trump said, “If Vladimir Putin were sitting next to me at one table instead of one of the other [leaders]… I might say, ‘Will you do me a favor? Will you get out of Syria? Will you get out of Ukraine? Out of Ukraine, you should not be there. ‘”
“That’s a great idea! Joe Biden should just say, ‘Can you do me a favor? You just have to walk out?’ Why hasn’t anyone thought of that? Just make a call. perfect and it’ll be over,” Kimmel shared. Thatta boy, Adolf! Sweet mustache! I love what you’re doing there!’”
