Former President Donald Trump and two of his most prominent supporters each found themselves back in the news over the weekend. Jimmy Kimmel recapped the latest reasons he’s mocking Team Trump.

President Joe Biden has been in office for nearly six months at this point. His focus has been on the pandemic and the country seems ready to return to normal life thanks to vaccination rates.

However, the MAGAverse remains fixated on the 2020 election. Conspiracy theories have given way to actual election audits in a last-last-last-ditch effort to overturn the results.

But Team Trump hasn’t been doing itself any favors lately. Jimmy Kimmel’s monologue recapped another tough weekend for Representative Matt Gaetz, former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, and former President Trump.

Jimmy Kimmel celebrates Matt Gaetz, Michael Flynn, and Donald Trump getting embarrassed

Florida Representative Matt Gaetz continued his streak of bad news over Memorial Day weekend. In a time when Republicans feigned outrage towards Vice President Kamala Harris, it was Gaetz who had the biggest gaffe.

As Jimmy Kimmel pointed out, a Twitter user tricked Gaetz into retweeting and honoring an image of Lee Harvey Oswald. Insult was added to injury when the Twitter user changed his name to highlight Gaetz’s ongoing legal troubles. Kimmel always approves of a good prank and that’s especially true when it comes at the expense of someone like Gaetz.

Meanwhile, retired General Michael Flynn had to defend himself against calls for a court martial. Kimmel showed footage of Flynn at what the comedian called “QAnon Con.” Flynn appeared to support the idea of a government coup in the U.S. similar to what happened in Myanmar.

Kimmel closed things out by checking in on former President Donald Trump. The late night host cited a report from New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman indicating that Trump believes he’ll be reinstated as president in August. Trump was immediately mocked once the report hit Twitter.

Kimmel calls Trump’s latest conspiracy theory so crazy that it has to be true. If Trump denies Haberman’s report, then we’ll have confirmation that he believes he’s still president, says the comedian.

Jimmy Kimmel and other late night hosts have long suggested that Republicans and Team Trump live in their own reality. Kimmel points to the different sets of standards for outrage or continued efforts to subvert democracy. But as time goes on, Kimmel isn’t taking any of it as seriously as he once did.
