Jimmy Kimmel called Trump, Kanye West, and renowned white nationalist Nick Fuentes’ Mar-a-Lago meeting a “meeting of the dumb” on Monday.
Trump called Fuentes a “guest whom I had never met and knew nothing about” to deflect criticism of his dinner with him. “He says the same thing every time Eric comes over to eat,” Kimmel said.
Kimmel also explained why he wanted rapper Kanye West, now known as Ye, to approach Trump about being his running mate.
“But just to review, Kanye West went to Mar-a-Lago to have dinner with Donald Trump,” he stated. Trump claimed he was unaware of his plus one, a white supremacist and Holocaust denier.
“Which is worse?” Kimmel questioned. “Are you having the person over for dinner or not knowing you’re inviting a bigoted rando into a residence that was, until very recently, full of unsecured top-secret documents?” “Two words on your phone tell you you’re dining with a scumbag.”
