Jimmy Kimmel put together some of his picks for the #MAGAChallenge, a rap contest judged by none other than President Donald Trump.
You would think that President Donald Trump doesn’t have much on his plate after hearing that he’s reviewing entries in a rap competition. But despite an ongoing impeachment inquiry, the President is indeed back in the competition game with the #MAGAChallenge. To help President Trump narrow down the choices, Jimmy Kimmel sorted through the options.
The #MAGAChallenge began back in Sept. and was started by rapper Bryson Gray. Gray believes that the social media campaign will do for President Trump what Kanye West’s support should have done.
As you can imagine, there is a very small overlap between supporters of President Trump and talented amateur rappers. Still, this hasn’t stopped the #MAGAChallenge hashtag from trending on Twitter or stopped President Trump from encouraging the contest via his own Twitter account.
In the world of late night television, nobody pays more attention to President Trump’s tweets than Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The ABC show has previously examined a 130 tweet weekend by President Trump and on Monday night, host Jimmy Kimmel covered an 80 tweet day by the Commander-in-Chief.
Kimmel is also a big fan of any viral trend, having started a fair number of them himself. So the comedian couldn’t resist taking a peek at some of the #MAGAChallenge candidates eager to show off their rapping skills at the White House for President Trump.
Kimmel lets the highlight reel of MAGA rappers speak for itself. The comedian decided not to offer much commentary and that may have been the best strategy. There isn’t much more Kimmel or anyone else could have said that isn’t apparent to anyone who watched those “raps.”
One would think that the organizers and participants in the #MAGAChallenge would have known it had the potential to backfire. There are far more people on Twitter like Kimmel who are mocking the contest than those who sincerely want to express support for President Trump via rapping.
Kimmel wraps up the segment by looking at incidents of Team Trump receiving decidedly less support than the #MAGAChallenge. Kimmel never misses a chance to take a shot at Donald Trump, Jr., AKA DJTJ. The comedian does it again here before turning his attention to President Trump’s efforts to find a stadium that wouldn’t boo him.
You can be sure that Jimmy Kimmel will be keeping an eye out for who wins the #MAGAChallenge and gets the honor of performing at the White House. After seeing the options, President Donald Trump may be facing the toughest decision of his presidency.
