Jimmy Kimmel Brutally Mocks Trump ‘Thank You’ Hotline: Thanks for Making ‘Casual Racism’ Okay

Donald Trump‘s campaign released an ad Tuesday demanding that Americans call in and thank him for stuff, and that hotline predictably led viewers to a fundraising appeal once their messages of gratitude were recorded.

So on Tuesday night’s edition of Jimmy Kimmel Live, host Jimmy Kimmel naturally complied with the ad’s demand, calling in to his show’s parody version of the Trump gratitude hotline, and discovered just what Americans have to be grateful to Trump for.

“Hi, this is Brad Parscale from the Trump reelection committee, and thanks for calling the Donald Trump presidential thank you hotline,” the parody hotline recording said. “For instructions in English, press 1 now. For instructions in Spanish, go back to wherever the hell you came from.”

The hotline then gave callers the option to thank Trump for things like “making it okay to use casual racism on Facebook” and “the two minutes of awkward sweaty sex you had with him in the ’90s,” and even provided an opportunity to enter a contest to become the next chief of staff.

“I wanted to say thank you to President Trump for teaching my kids what happens to your brain when you eat too much fried chicken,” Kimmel said at the beep.

As solid as this bit was, it’s probably not half as funny as the real messages being left on the Trump thank you hotline.
