Jimmy Kimmel Donald Trump UN Speech


Jimmy Kimmel mocked Donald Trump’s U.N. speech on Tuesday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” slamming the president for threatening to “totally destroy” North Korea if forced to do so. Watch the full video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, president Trump’s first major speech to the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday was met with widespread criticism. During his live address in New York, he branded the Iran nuclear deal an “embarrassment” and threatened North Korea over its weapon tests. Trump sternly told the crowd, “The United States has great strength and patience, but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea.” Of course, providing the late night hosts with a vast amount of new material, Kimmel couldn’t help but poke fun at the president’s controversial speech.

“He gave a speech this morning in New York, speaking to the representatives of 193 countries, the U.N. general assembly,” Kimmel told the audience during his opening monologue. “The president was a little bit disappointed because usually when Donald Trump meets with representatives of different countries, there’s a swimsuit competition and they wear sashes. Instead, he was forced to make a speech. It was a historic address,” he cracked.

The late night host continued, mocking Trump for nicknaming the North Korean leader “Rocket Man.” “He called Kim Jong Un ‘Rocket Man.’ I think he does that nickname thing, because he can’t remember anyone’s real name,” he quipped. Kimmel added, “He said Kim Jong Un was a ‘Rocket Man’ on a suicide mission. And if you want to insult Kim Jong Un, don’t make it sound like he’s part of an action packed new movie franchise. Just call him ‘Lil Kim. That’s good enough.” Watch the full video below, in which Kimmel slowed down the speed of Trump’s final toast at the United Nations for another edition of “Drunk Donald Trump.” NOTE: The video is no longer available.
