Jimmy Kimmel Delivers a Message for Trump Voters: “You Know You Made a Mistake”

Here’s a great clip from last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live, where Kimmel covers Trump’s bizarre decision yesterday not only to backtrack on his comments condemning the white supremacists in Charlottesville over the weekend but actually double down on defending them. This leads to a rapid-fire recap of the countless ways Trump has screwed up since becoming president, which leads to a direct plea to Trump voters:

He screws up royally every day — sometimes two or three times a day. We can’t keep up with it. Things come out of nowhere. Every day there’s something nuts. But you’ve been trying to ignore it cause you don’t want to admit to these smug annoying liberals that they were right. That’s the last thing you want to do. But the truth is, deep down inside, you know you made a mistake. You know you picked the wrong guy, and it isn’t getting better, it’s getting worse. So you can do one of two things: You can dig in like Chris Christie at a hometown buffet, or you could treat this situation like you would if you put Star Wars wallpaper up in the kitchen: “All right, I got caught up. I was excited, I made a mistake, and now it needs to go.” Well, now he does need to go, so it’s time for especially you who voted for him to tell him to go.
