On Tuesday, Jimmy Kimmel hosted his show from home and shared his latest “quarantine minilogue.”
“Some of our thickest-headed politicians have been passing the time by spreading nonsense about the coronavirus,” Kimmel said.
Kimmel started off by mentioning Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, who told Tucker Carlson on Monday that the elderly should be willing to die from the coronavirus to save the stock market.
“And that doesn’t make me noble or brave or anything like that,” Patrick told Carlson.
“No, it makes you an idiot,” Kimmel said. “I shouldn’t say it makes you an idiot. It reveals to us that you are an idiot.”
“Unfortunately, the lieutenant governor isn’t alone in this moron-athon,” Kimmel added. As he moved on to Donald Trump’s town hall, which appeared on Fox News. During the town hall, Trump stated that he planned on opening the country back up for business by Easter, which is just over two weeks away.
“By Easter?! That’s in two and a half weeks!” Kimmel said. “Even Jesus is like, ‘Jesus, calm down, let’s think this through.’ We’re all going to die so the president can eat Peeps.”
Kimmel wrapped up his minilogue by discussing Melania Trump’s negative coronavirus test.
“Of course, she has,” Kimmel said. “She’s been six feet away from her husband since Stormy Daniels. Their marriage was the inventor of social distancing.”
