Jimmy Kimmel says he’s relieved by one way the Biden administration is already differentiating itself from Trump’s — by changing the vocabulary in the White House. And in his opening monologue Wednesday night Kimmel had a few dozen hilarious suggestions for other Trump-related words and phrases Biden should ditch.
You can read more about how Biden is changing things here, but the gist. as reported by the New York Times is that Biden is abandoning terms that represent Trump’s “anti-immigration, anti-science and anti-gay rights policies and replacing them with words and pictures that are more inclusive and better match the current president’s sensibilities.”
Among them, as Kimmel noted in his monologue, is the phrase “illegal alien,” which Biden has proposed be replaced with “noncitizen.”
“Which isn’t entirely accurate – everyone is a citizen of someplace,” Kimmel said, “but it makes sense – ‘people’ aren’t ‘illegal’ – and that’s just part of a long list of words and phrases they have put to rest.”
Then Kimmel jumped into it, providing a list of words we’re pretty sure aren’t on Biden’s list but, in addition to being funny, accurately depict just how awful Trump and his administration were. Also, plenty of dunking on Trump’s kids.
Check out the full list of Trump phrases Biden won’t be using — according to Kimmel — below, and watch the full monologue in the video at the top of the page.
