Jimmy Kimmel Offers Rare Praise For Trump Las Vegas Visit: ‘He Did Good Today!’

On Wednesday night, Jimmy Kimmel had some kind words for President Trump for his visit to Las Vegas in the wake of the massacre.

“Once again, we send our love to Las Vegas where President Trump visited today,” Kimmel began, “and you know what? He was very well-behaved!”

Kimmel had ratcheted up his attacks on the president in recent months, from calling him racist to saying that he “needs to go,” but he gave the president credit where credit was due.

“He stuck to his script, he thanked the first responders, he didn’t brag about his hotel there,” Kimmel continued. “He did good today! He really did.”

President Trump gave a somber speech earlier in the day, saying that our country “cannot be defined by the evil that threatens us or the violence that incites such terror” but by “our love, our caring, and our courage.” He also praised the professionalism of law enforcement and the medical staff in the wake of the tragedy.
