Jimmy Kimmel and Seth Meyers both took Donald Trump to task for his proposed budget cuts, including cutting funding for PBS, the National Endowment for the Arts and Meals on Wheels.
“The guy who has three oil paintings of himself in his bathroom wants to cut the National Endowment for the Arts,” said Kimmel. “How can you cut Meals on Wheels? Meals on Wheels is out, but don’t worry, the golf trips to Mar-a-Lago every weekend, those will not stop.”
Kimmel also spliced together footage of Trump heartlessly telling Big Bird “you’re fired.” The late-night host said he thinks Trump should watch Sesame Street before cutting funding for PBS, where the show airs after HBO.
“That show teaches so many things he needs to know: which thing is bigger than the other, how to spell, the importance of telling the truth and sharing, listening to others. Maybe throw in some Schoolhouse Rock, and he can find out how government works.”
Seth Meyers said he wasn’t surprised by Trump advocating for cuts to the EPA or the National Endowment for the Arts.
“The only environments you care for are fairways and greens and that endangered marshland you call a haircut,” said Meyers. “The only art you like are paintings of yourself where they take out the neck fat.”
But Meals on Wheels shocked Meyers. “How dead inside do you have to be to not want old people to get food? Your heart is so small it makes your tiny hands look like catcher mitts.”
