Jimmy Kimmel Claps Back At President Trump Over Tweet

President Trump had tweeted about the Oscars ceremony on Tuesday after Nielsen’s preliminary ratings reported an average audience of 26.5 million — down 19 percent from last year’s 32.9 million.

Jimmy Kimmel wasn't going to sit back and let that tweet go unnoticed, and clapped back in a matter of minutes.

Kimmel stated on his show

“Trump always has a problem with the Academy Awards, which is surprising because I really think he would love The Shape of Water,” Kimmel teased. “It’s about a monster that has sex with a woman who can’t talk about it. It’s basically like his life story!”

Jimmy ended his segment by throwing a funny jab to Trump, saying his tweet got more likes

“I also want to point out, because I know he would hate it, that my tweet got more than twice as many likes as his tweet,” Kimmel added. “I know that’s the thing that will get under his orange skin!”

We all know this won't be the last time we hear from Trumps twitter.
