After news that the New York Attorney General’s office would sue former President Donald Trump, his children, and his real estate company, late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel joked about the meaning of Trump’s recent online rant, seeing a clue that he may be preparing for a stay in a federal prison.
Kimmel joked that the online rant provides a clue as to where the former controversial former president will be living in the future as he attempted to decipher it, and he doesn’t think it will be Trump’s Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago.
After Trump lashed out on his Truth Social platform at New York Attorney General Letitia James over her Wednesday filing of a civil lawsuit against him and several members of his family, accusing them of a “staggering” amount of fraud, Kimmel remarked “Of Course.”
“Of course.” There’s no mistaking the fact that Trump is a con man. “Fraud is who he is! Charging Donald Trump with fraud is like charging Lizzo with ‘Juice.’ It’s his essence,” continued Kimmel.
But Kimmel then pondered why NY AG James was referred to as “Peekaboo” in Trump’s statement, saying “No idea.”
Then Trump signed off for the evening with the simple message of “Bye, bye.”
Which led Kimmel to conclude, “Peekaboo and bye, bye. Before going to jail, he’s probably visiting his granddaughter. In a sweet way.”
