Jimmy Kimmel looked at the process President Donald Trump will go through to accept his election defeat

It has been two weeks since the election and President Donald Trump has yet to accept defeat. It may take even more time for the president to concede as he works through his own personal stages of grief. Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue detailed what the president may be going through on Monday night.

President-elect Joe Biden earned what looks like an insurmountable lead in several key states. The Democrat pulled in 306 electoral college votes, the same number as President Trump in 2016. President Trump called that a landslide but is singing a much different tune in 2020.

The lawsuits filed on behalf of President Trump have mostly failed to challenge any results or throw out any ballots. So while the White House and members of the president’s base refuse to accept reality, the rest of the country seems eager to move on from the election.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! is certainly doing its part to move on. The ABC late night show has tried to help President Trump accept reality. On Monday night, Kimmel offered his audience an explanation for the stages of grief the current president is likely experiencing.

Kimmel says we can expect President Trump to go through the standard emotions and stages including denial, anger, and delusion (twice). But then things get decidedly Trump-ish for Kimmel as he adds in “discombobulation,” “incoherence,” and “hallucination.”

In the end, it will still conclude with acceptance. Kimmel just isn’t counting on President Trump accepting that he lost because voters wanted him out of the White House. Instead, Kimmel jokes that the blame will be put on China if not somewhere else.

Jimmy Kimmel says Trump supporters may need even more time to accept the loss

Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue then turned its attention to the “Million MAGA March,” a demonstration in support of President Trump. For Kimmel, this group of people may be permanently stuck in the “anger” phase of acceptance.

Meanwhile, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnaney remains in the “delusion” stage. Kimmel mocked her tweet exaggerating the number of supporters at the Washington, D.C. event–a number that was subsequently corrected by local authorities.

If nobody inside the White House or their supporters can accept reality, then Kimmel is willing to get creative. Once again he offered a way to trick Donald Trump into thinking he will still be president while keeping him isolated at Mar-a-Lago. If the 10 Stages of Trump Grief continue for much longer, Kimmel’s ideas may not seem so crazy.
