Kimmel Denies He Ever Waited For Trump on the Sidewalk and Opened His Car Door: ‘That Never Happened!’
Returning from his vacation Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel finally reacted to President Donald Trump‘s attacks of him and other late night comedians at a rally he held last month.
Kimmel told his audience that while in the Montana wilderness, he was alerted that Trump attacked him but didn’t hear what was said until he got back home. Back in that South Carolina rally, Trump claimed that before the election, Kimmel “waited” for his arrival outside on the sidewalk on Hollywood Blvd. and opened his car door, something he “doesn’t do for anybody” according to “Kimmel’s people.”
“Right, including you I’d do it for nobody because that never happened!” Kimmel laughed. “You know, it’s a funny thing. “We all know- like even the people who like the president know he makes things up, but still, it’s weird to hear him tell a lie that’s specifically involves you.”
“For the record, not only was I not on the sidewalk waiting for him, opening the door to his car, I didn’t even go to his dressing room to sell hello before the show,” Kimmel continued. “I never do. In 15 years, I probably, I don’t know, I’ve done it like seven times. I like to greet the guests on the stage. I feel dumb saying hello to them and saying hello to them again ten minutes later.”
To further prove he wouldn’t wait outside for Trump outside of Hollywood Blvd, he showed a live shot of Hollywood Blvd, telling his viewers that his guests come in through the back.
Kimmel then told his audience what “really happened.”
“Donald Trump showed up one night outside our show banging on the backstage door,” Kimmel said. “It was 2007, he had a half-finished bucket of chicken under his arm. He was screaming that he needed to use the bathroom, but unfortunately, there was someone in the bathroom. I believe it was Zach Braff who was in the bathroom. So Donald took a look around, he stuffed the remainder chicken in his jacket, he dropped his pants, and he did his business in the bucket. That’s true. That story is exactly true as his was.”
Jimmy Fallon similarly denied Trump’s claim that the he had called and thanked the then-presidential candidate for the high ratings after appearing on his show during the election.
