Jimmy Kimmel Reacts to Trump's Charlottesville Comments (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel is sharing his thoughts on how President Donald Trump has been handling the violent marches that erupted in Charlottesville, Va., where white nationalists have been clashing with counter-protestors.

The 49-year-old talk show host addressed the situation during his opening monologue on Monday night (August 14).

“We went into the weekend worrying about the fact that Kim Jong-un vowed to start a war by the middle of this month,” Jimmy said. “And we come out of it wondering if our president is cutting eye holes out of his bedsheets.”

“As you know, this weekend in Virginia, the worst people in the United States went to the hardware store, bought tiki torches, lit them up, and marched in Charlottesville,” he continued. “A non-violent protester was killed by a white supremacist and so the president – who is the president, by the way – went on television. … He started strong, and then he had to throw in ‘on many sides.’”

“Let’s not lay all the blame on the Nazis and the Klan, there were people who marched against them,” Jimmy joked, adding, “Then for two days he had no further comment. The one thing he decides to be quiet about is this! Of course, everyone went nuts because there weren’t many sides – there were two sides – and one of those sides had Nazis on it.”

“All he had to do was condemn the Nazis, it shouldn’t have been a difficult thing,” Jimmy said. “It’s not exactly a controversial stance, not like we asked him to come out against puppies.”

He also shared, “Angela Merkel, the German chancellor, called this rally ‘evil’ and ‘disgusting.’ You understand what that means? That means Germany is taking a stronger stance against Nazis than we are, and they invented them.”
