#EndorseThis: Jimmy Kimmel May Have Outed Trump NYT Op-Ed Author

Jimmy Kimmel knows how to give and take. In today’s clip, the comic parses his words carefully while making sure not to appoint himself the world’s foremost expert on politics.

For instance, Kimmel calls President Trump an idiot, and also calls himself an idiot. He tacitly admits that some of Bob Woodward’s popular new book could be fiction…while bashing 45 for publishing harmful fiction of his own.

Most importantly, the late-night host has a theory about which anonymous “senior White House official” wrote the controversial New York Times op-ed detailing Trump’s fight against his own administration, which leans too far in an establishment-GOP direction for the Orange One’s taste.

You might be expecting a punch line or a gag…but it’s actually a damn solid hypothesis.

Here’s a hint – if Trump’s “Space Force” manages to destroy the “Lodestar,” the President’s victim might be high enough in the food chain for it to be considered an historic “assassination.” Flags might fly at half-mast for a very, very long time…except at joyful parties thrown by Democrats in the days to follow.

Press play for the proof.
