Jimmy Kimmel slammed Donald Trump’s astounding Charlottesville press conference on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” branding the president as a “total disaster.” As Gossip Cop reported, Trump argued that “both sides” of the clashes in Virginia were to blame for the violence, prompting the late night host to call on Trump voters to admit they “made a mistake.” Watch the video below!

During his 12-minute-long opening monologue, the talk show host discussed Trump’s astonishing press conference, in which he struggled to condemn white supremacists in the wake of the Charlottesville protests. “It started as a press conference about infrastructure, and ended with our President making an angry and passionate defense of white supremacists. It was like if your book club meeting turned into a cockfight. It really was remarkable.” Kimmel added, “I think I can say this with reasonable certainty, the president is completely unhinged. The wheels are off the wagon and hurtling towards the moon.”

And in a direct plea to Trump voters, Kimmel said, “I want to speak to those of you who voted for Donald Trump. And first of all, I want to say I get it. I actually do. You’re unhappy with the way things were going. You wanted someone to come in and shake things up. You didn’t want business as usual. Nothing ever seems to get done. It’s always the same. These candidates make a lot of promises that go nowhere. It happens over and over again. And you’re sick of it.”

He continued, “But the truth is deep down inside you know you made a mistake. You know you picked the wrong guy. And it isn’t getting better. It’s getting worse. Well, now he does need to go. So it’s time for especially you who voted for him to tell him to go. Please.” “And I’m asking you, the people who supported Donald Trump to him to step in and help for the good of this country,” he concluded. Watch Kimmel’s full monologue below.
