#EndorseThis: Kimmel Shows How The Trump Campaign ‘Monetizes Stupid’

“You know you have a hothead president when you have to defuse tensions with Canada,” quips Jimmy Kimmel as he reviews Trump’s week, which included a visit from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Among many eventful moments was the kickoff of Trump 2020 in Orlando where — according to the president — his rally attracted a crowd of at least 121,000 supporters and a huge overflow. Indeed, Trump claimed that his campaign urged people not to attend to avoid dangerous overcrowding.

Click and laugh.
