Jimmy Kimmel Ruthlessly Mocks Melania Trump’s Accent In Opening Monologue
Every now and then Jimmy Kimmel grows tired of criticizing Donald Trump and decides to attack his wife Melania instead.
Kimmel opened up his show Monday night by talking about the White House Easter Egg Roll, during which he questioned the first lady’s involvement in the event and made fun of her accent.
The late-night comedian first played a clip from Donald Trump’s remarks at Monday’s event in which he praised Melania for her hard work setting it up. Kimmel didn’t buy it.
“Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up. There’s no — she didn’t dye eggs, she didn’t fill baskets,” Kimmel told his crowd, laughing. “The only thing she’s been working on is an escape tunnel.”
Kimmel then played another clip from the Easter Egg Roll of the first lady reading the children’s book, “YOU!,” by Sandra Magsamen to a group of children. The clip only played for a few seconds before Kimmel burst out laughing and tried to impersonate Melania’s voice.
“About this and that,” he repeated with a laugh. “Guillermo, you know what this means? You could be first lady of the United States,” he said, speaking to his Mexican-American sidekick.
It is no secret that English is a second-language to the first lady. In fact it’s just one of five languages that the Slovenian-born beauty is fluent in. Unfortunately, people like Kimmel ignore that fact and use it as yet another juvenile excuse to criticize the administration.
