Jimmy Kimmel used inspiration from the holiday classic Love Actually deliver a message to President Donald Trump

We are well into the Christmas season and for millions of fans, that means it’s also Love Actually season. The 2003 romantic comedy is considered a holiday classic and even inspired Jimmy Kimmel to deliver a special message to President Donald Trump.

Christmas is typically a time for celebration at the White House. Between tree lighting ceremonies and talking with children, President Trump has hosted a number of events during his time in office. But with the writing on the wall making it clear that his bid to overturn the election failed, President Trump may not be in the holiday spirit this time around.

Yet if Love Actually taught us anything, it’s that you tell the truth at Christmas time. The president may not want to hear the truth about the election but as we’ve been told, elections have consequences.

So with that in mind, Jimmy Kimmel decided to tell President the truth. The truth about the last four years and what could be in store for the outgoing president in future Christmases.

First off, credit goes to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! staff for the very convincing deep fake work. Having President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump appear in the parody definitely helped elevate the material.

Kimmel’s cue cards emphasize many of the things the late night host has mocked and ridiculed President Trump about for the past four years. President Trump’s alleged crimes, his difficulties with geography and maps, and his son Donald Trump, Jr. have all been the focus of past Kimmel monologues and bits. This may have been the comedian’s way of recapping it all and giving President Trump a not-so-fond farewell.

How does Jimmy Kimmel’s Love Actually parody compare to Saturday Night Live?

Jimmy Kimmel Live! is by no means the first to parody Love Actually. The show is certainly not the first in late night television to do it, either.

Over the past few years, Saturday Night Live has produced its own versions of the iconic scene between Andrew Lincoln and Keira Knightley. Like Kimmel, one had a political twist while the other was a bit more out there. Watch them both below and let us know who has the best Love Actually parody in late night.
