Jimmy Kimmel Points Out that Trump isn’t that Different from Harvey Weinstein

On Saturday, a twitter feud erupted between Jimmy Kimmel and Donald Trump Jr. The late-night comedian pointed out that the president’s son shouldn’t be talking about Harvey Weinstein, when his father is not that different.

“So people are pointing to the fact that Harvey Weinstein was a Clinton supporter, and listen, it’s true,” Kimmel told his late-night audience on Monday night. “I’m not defending Hillary Clinton. The fact is, her campaign did take money from what turned out to be a high-profile man who’s been accused of sexual harassment multiple times. And not just one of them, by the way. She took money from two of them: Harvey Weinstein and Donald Trump, who donated to Hillary’s campaign in 2008. So, anyway, note to DJTJ, next time you’re defending your father and you think it’s a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly-accused sexual predator? Don’t. It doesn’t help. It really doesn’t.”

What sparked this debate? President Donald Trump doing what he does best, tweeting absolute bullshit.

In which Kimmel shot back with a tweet saying:

Of course, Donald Jr. had to come to his father’s defense and tweeted to Kimmel:

This was an extremely stupid movie being that his father bragged to Billy Bush about “grabbing women by the pussy.”

Kimmel joked, “It just so happened to be the one-year anniversary of that tape being released, so I thought we should celebrate.”
