Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel joked in his monologue on Tuesday that the sinkhole on the White House lawn is actually one of First Lady Melania Trump’s “escape tunnels.”
On Tuesday morning, news reports revealed that a gaping hole had appeared on the White House’s North lawn, forcing groundskeepers to section it off with caution tape and traffic cones.
“It is very interesting and weird, because exactly one year ago today, a sinkhole opened at Mar-a-Lago,” Kimmel said during his Tuesday night show. “And now there’s one outside the White House. I’m starting to think maybe God’s aim is slightly off.”
“Are we sure this is a sinkhole and not one of Melania’s escape tunnels?” he asked. “I don’t want to read into it, but she did ask for a headlamp for Mother’s Day.”
