Israel officially declared war on Hamas militants in Gaza on Sunday, a day after a surprise attack that killed hundreds of people. Although the political unrest between Israel and Palestine has been going on for more than half a century, making it one of the longest-running political conflicts in history, an astonished Jimmy Kimmel reflected on how Donald Trump is absolutely convinced that none of it would happen if he and his state legislature would do nothing. Coca-Cola buttons still occupied the Oval Office.
Kimmel described the situation in Israel on Monday as a “nightmare,” noting: “Leaders from around the world condemned the attack, as did millions of Americans – including our super-duper, pro-Israel former President Donald Trump.” to talk about yourself.”
Trump took to social media on Sunday as, In all caps, the former president claimed that “the terrible attack on Israel, similar to the attack on Ukraine, would never have happened if I had been president – zero chance!”
Kimmel replied, “That’s true. If he were president, we would all happily drink bleach. There would be no war everywhere.”
While Trump did his best to continue portraying himself as “pro-Israel,” he spent part of the weekend strutting around Waterloo, Iowa…and bragging about his physique compared to Joe Biden. After complaining about how much time the sitting president spends on the beach, Trump assured the crowd, “I have a much better body than him.” But I’m not really sure I want to expose it to the blazing sun – the sand, the surf, the wind…it’s not a pretty sight.” Which gave Kimmel an idea: “Maybe instead of an election next year, we’ll just have a wet t-shirt contest.”
