Donald Trump has provided plenty of material for late-night comedy over recent months, and Monday it was his taste in fashion that fueled Jimmy Kimmel’s opening monologue.
After taking a two-week hiatus, the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” host had plenty to catch up on when it came to the controversial GOP presidential candidate.
“Donald Trump is still on a roll,” Kimmel marveled, noting that the latest Fox News poll has him at 25 percent in the GOP primary. “But Trump had to take a day off today for jury duty in New York … fortunately he wasn’t called up.”
However, at the weekend Trump was at the Iowa State Fair where he was snapped “eating a pork chop on a stick,” Kimmel said. “I would like to see this image on the $100 bill one day.”
Trump arrived in Des Moines in his private helicopter wearing a hat “so that we can’t see what his hair looked like when the blades go around,” claimed the late-night host. “It probably looked like a cotton candy machine exploded.”
Not only was he wearing the tacky red headwear, he is now selling the “Make America Great Again” hat on his website and announced the great deal on Twitter Monday.
“For the low price of only $25, you too can look like — an 80-year-old greeter at Walmart,” Kimmel quipped, asking: “Who would wear that hat?”
Trump later offered to give kids at the state fair a helicopter ride, casually asking, “Where are your parents?”
“About 20 kids got to take a helicopter ride — he dropped them off in Texas — the kids are now building a wall on the Mexican border,” Kimmel joked.
Trump was also reportedly asked by one of the children, “Are you Batman?” Of course, the only viable answer to that, no matter who you are, is, “Yes.”
“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” airs at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
