Donald Trump’s week, and consequently our week as well, just keeps getting weirder, particularly with Trump’s attempt on Tuesday to say that he meant to say “wouldn’t” instead of “would” when he declared during his press conference with Vladimir Putin that he saw no reason to think Russia was involved in the foreign interference in the 2016 election. And Jimmy Kimmel was miffed by the whole thing.
“I have to say, we thought yesterday was the craziest day of this ridiculous presidency. Turned out, today made yesterday feel like a visit to historic Gettysburg,” Kimmel said to begin his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” monologue Tuesday night.
“The news today is that our President is a liar. And not even a good one. President Trump today, in an attempt to explain what the Helsinki was going through his cotton candy-covered head, when he stood next to Vladimir Putin, of all people, and took sides with Russia over our own American intelligence agencies, now says it was just a tiny little slip-up — even smaller than his fists.”
