Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

The Trump base masquerades as an “anti-establishment” movement. But anyone who lived through the Reagan era knows that nothing inspires “punk” spirit like a far-right conservative in the White House. Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel delivers a Sex Pistols-worthy opening monologue, flatly accusing the mainstream media of parroting a pro-Trump fraud. 

Specifically, the notion that President Trump is healthy, of course, as supposedly proved by his latest physical.

Kimmel shreds Trump’s entire medical report, the doctor who examined the pudgy POTUS, and the myth that a fast food-chomping, golf cart-riding TV junkie with anger-management issues could be anything but dangerously ill. 

For a bonus, Kimmel’s mock White House presser raises the possibility that Trump’s hair is smarter than his brain.
