Kimmel celebrates 'halftime' of Trump's presidency with major mockery

Jimmy Kimmel celebrated the midway point of Donald Trump's presidency on Jimmy Kimmel Live!Monday night by dedicating the entire episode to the President, called "Intermission Accomplished: A Halftime Tribute to Trump." "We are here to celebrate the midway mark of Donald Trump's first term in office because, let's be honest, this is a man who is far too humble to celebrate himself," said Kimmel. It was a star-studded event as celebrities joined Kimmel to pay their respects, like Josh Gad who dressed up as Ken Bone, a man who went viral during the second 2016 U.S. presidential debate. "I owe Trump everything, don't I, Jimmy? I'm a celebrity now. People recognize me on the street. They buy me sweaters," Gad told Kimmel while wearing a red sweater with Trump's slogan,"MAGA," on it. Fred Armisen, Bobby Moynihan, Jeff Ross, and Anthony Atamanuik also made an appearance. The comedians brought Mount Rushmore to life as the presidential heads, with Atamanuik portraying Trump, complete with a spray-painted 24-karat gold face. "I'm the 45th and best president of the United States, Donald Jesus Trump," said Atamanuik. When Kimmel, who was portraying Abraham Lincoln, asked Trump what he accomplished to be added to the memorial, noting that he ended slavery, Atamanuik's Trump stated, "That's not true. I've been making a bunch of federal employees work for free for 31 days." Paul Scheer and Will Arnett later made cameos portraying Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. who were in Africa to find "the perfect gift for President Dad," followed by Alyssa Milano, who starred in an infomercial for "Trump's greatest moments in office commemorative plates." But the tribute wasn't just filled with celebrities, it also featured musical performances. Grammy nominee Leon Bridges sang some of Trump's most memorable tweets, while Aloe Blacc performed what Kimmel called "our new national anthem." But the best performance of the night came from a musical group called "Up With Trump," who were dressed in blue-sequined suits and blonde wigs, while singing "Mister Tan Man, send me a tweet, from your official White House toilet seat," and "Tan Man, retweet a meme about an alt-right conspiracy theme. Fox News coverage is guaranteed, Mister Tan Man, send me a tweet!" The episode ended with Kimmel sending a message to Trump, stating, "Congratulations, Mr. President. Here's to another long and calamitous two years. Thanks for the memories."
