Jimmy Kimmel‘s monologue all but guaranteed that former President Donald Trump is going to jail. The late-night TV host recapped the developments he thinks will make his prediction come true.
Kimmel, like other late-night hosts, has been calling for Trump to face some sort of consequences for years now. Even before January 6 or the 2020 election, Kimmel’s monologues suggested that Trump should lose power or be imprisoned for his actions.
Now, it’s looking like Kimmel will get his wish. On Tuesday night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the host seemed almost overwhelmed by the latest developments in Trump’s trials. Taken all together, it was enough for Kimmel to declare Donald Trump “is definitely going to jail.”
The prediction was met with a round of applause from Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘s studio audience. And that was before Kimmel’s monologue even tried to make his case.
Jimmy Kimmel recaps the string of bad news for Donald Trump
Kimmel’s monologue made sure to get all the facts straight. The late-night TV host emphasized how Tuesday was a terrible day for Donald Trump.
“Today alone, his former chief of staff Mark Meadows, we learned has immunity in the January 6th case. He will testify that he repeatedly told Trump that the allegations of voting fraud were baseless,” Kimmel reported.
“His former lawyer, Jenna Ellis, pleaded guilty to felony charges of aiding and abetting false statements in the Georgia election tampering case,” Kimmel continued. “And will likely testify against her former client.”
But that’s not all. Kimmel’s monologue wasn’t done yet. “And Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen testified against him in the fraud trial in New York. Right now, half of Trump’s lawyers are trying to keep him out of prison, the other half are trying to keep themselves out of prison,” Kimmel quipped.
Jimmy Kimmel’s prediction that Donald Trump is going to jail seems more likely to come true after these latest developments. And there is still plenty of time for the former president to have worse days and give Kimmel’s monologue more material.
