Every politician reverses herself on a topic sooner or later. Smart leaders measure words carefully on each issue, knowing that foes will cast any minuscule change as a waffle. “Actually, what I said was…” is a popular quote during debates.

In today’s clip, Jimmy Kimmel pokes a pachyderm-sized hole in The Donald’s laughable endorsement of Mitt Romney for U.S. Senate. The late night host debuts his version of a Trump-endorses-Romney campaign ad highlighting all of the terrible things the duo said about each other in 2016.
