Thursday was Emmy nominations day, and so Jimmy Kimmel began his monologue by cracking wise about the big contenders and joked that “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” managed to pull in 46 nominations, before casually sliding into some Donald Trump-related zingers.
“And there were some surprises this year too, most notably this nomination for best actor in a comedy series,” Kimmel said, before playing the clip of Trump once again claiming to be “a very stable genius.” Trump was not actually nominated for an Emmy.
“That’s our president at NATO today, describing himself once again as a genius. A very stable genius,” Kimmel said. “The genius part aside, who describes himself as ‘stable’? Stable is a word the doctor uses after you have a car accident. He’s stable, it’s okay.”
