Jimmy Kimmel did a mashup video on his Monday show, highlighting two presidential candidates, Donald Trump and Kanye West. After noting that West would “make a great candidate,” Kimmel expressed that the rapper “has a lot in common with another famous person who wants to be president,” namely Trump. The talk-show host then showed footage of both West and Trump, and surprisingly (or maybe not), the two outspoken men are very similar. See the video below.

The clip began with both Trump and West announcing they were running for president. As Gossip Cop previously reported, during West’s acceptance speech after he was presented the Video Vanguard Award at Sunday’s VMAs, the singer declared that in 2020 he was going to “run for president.” The mashup video, which was tied to West’s VMAs long rant, similarly showed Trump saying he was “running for president.”

Next, from the same VMAs footage, West said, “I’m not no politician,” which was juxtaposed in the video with Trump blurting, “How stupid are these politicians?” There was also footage of the two men talking about people who “like me,” and how it’s all about “ratings.” The video then showed West saying about himself, “Did he smoke some before he came out here?” spliced with Trump stating, “I’m all for medical marijuana.”

At the end of the video, Kimmel said, “Thank you, President Trump and future President Kanye West.” Check out the mashup of Kanye West and Donald Trump on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” and tell us what you think.
