Jimmy Kimmel Blames Mark Burnett for Donald Trump
The 48-year-old comedian is hosting the show this evening and during his monologue, he blamed The Apprentice producer Mark Burnett for giving Donald Trump the platform he needed to reach his presidential campaign.
“Television can also tear us apart. If it wasn’t for television would Donald Trump be running for president?” Jimmy asked the crowd. “No. He’d be home right now quietly rubbing up against his wife Malaria [sic] while she pretends to be asleep.”
“Thanks to Mark Burnett, we don’t have to watch reality shows anymore. We’re living in one,” Jimmy said. “Who do you have lined up to fill the spot on the Supreme Court? Miley Cyrus or Cee-Lo?… If Donald Trump gets elected, and he builds that wall, the first person we’re throwing over is Mark Burnett.”
