“Donald Trump has made a lot of enemies over the last several months,” Jimmy Kimmel observed during Thursday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! “But he also – as he has been known to mention – has a lot of friends.” The above clip incorporates a video montage of the Republican frontrunner touting his important acquaintances, both living and dead – everyone from Michael Jackson to Elton John to Muhammad Ali.
Trump also trumpets his friends across the demographic spectrum, including “a friend of mine who’s Chinese” and “many friends who are Muslims.” The clip spirals into horrifying chaos at the end, with the controversial GOP candidate saying “friend of mine” over and over. But Kimmel sneaks in one final jab, ending with Trump admitting, “I have no friends as far as I’m concerned.”
With Trump’s campaign continuing to gain momentum, late-night hosts across the board have ramped up their verbal assaults on the real estate mogul. Both Stephen Colbert and John Oliver cracked jokes about the candidate’s headline-making penis, and Kimmel brought on former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney to read Trump supporters’ mean tweets.
