With all that has happened with Donald Trump leading up to that disastrous summit meeting with Putin, Jimmy Kimmel is endorsing a chimpanzee for president.

Real talk — would things not be any better?

It’s been a very embarrassing week so far already for Donald Trump. The president underwent some huge backlash after his meeting with Vladimir Putin. During their summit, Trump claimed he didn’t see any reason why Russia would interfere in the U.S. election. After dealing with the heat, Trump is walking it back by saying he actually meant to say “wouldn’t” instead. For many people, the excuse is even worse than the gaffe, given how implausible it is.

Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy Kimmel responded to the disastrous fiasco. This apology is so terrible that Kimmel assumed it must have been written by the person who hates him the most — Melania Trump! But, even more, it’s officially the last straw for Kimmel, who’s had more than enough of Trump. At this point, Kimmel would much rather see an actual chimpanzee as the president instead.

“At least, with a chimp, there’d be somebody to eat the bugs out of Rudy Giuliani’s hair,” Kimmel quips. If anything, a monkey wouldn’t be going through this same backtracking that the president currently is. But if remembering the right words is really a problem for Trump, Kimmel hopes to help him out by playing a customized Sesame Street video to teach him.

No word yet on if any actual chimpanzees are going to run for president in 2020. But should any decide to do so, they’ll have the full support of Kimmel. In the meantime, you can catch more of his show when JImmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on ABC!
