The painting by Andy Thomas was revealed to be hanging in the White House on Sunday’s episode of 60 Minutes. In it, Trump is seen sitting at a table with other Republican presidents, including the Bushes, Gerald Ford, Richard Nixon, Theodore Roosevelt, Dwight E. Eisenhower and Ronald Reagan. Abraham Lincoln appears to be leading the conversation in the painting. The current president also looks noticeably slim.
Kimmel, who is currently filming his annual weeklong stint of Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Brooklyn, introduced the topic by asking a question. “I have a quick New York question. Is Donald Trump the president here, too?” he asked. “Well, back in L.A. he is and it’s not going great.”
The host then shared the painting. “There are only three living people in this painting. Two of them hate Donald Trump,” he said about the Bushes. “The other one is Donald Trump.”
“What a beautifully crafted piece of narcissism,” Kimmel commented. “It’s hard to figure out which piece of insanity to focus on. The fact that Richard Nixon and Abraham Lincoln, in the scenario, are friends or that Donald Trump weighs less than 200 pounds.”
Kimmel concluded the topic by stating that the painting is not very realistic and gave a suggestion for a more believable image: A painting of Trump sitting at a poker table with a group of dogs then appeared onscreen.
Over on The Late Late Show, host Corden shared the painting with his audience. “That’s real. We haven’t done this. This is a real. This is hanging in the White House,” said the host as the viewers laughed.
“It looks like all the other presidents are wondering why Trump is even there,” he said. “They’re like, ‘Ha, ha, ha. But seriously, what are you even doing here? Is this an Apprentice thing?'”
“Everyone’s laughing, but Trump looks a little uncomfortable,” noted Corden. “It looks like one of them just finished saying, ‘And then this guy said Mexico would pay for the wall.'”
While Corden admitted that “it’s not a very good painting,” he added that it is historic. “This has to be the first presidential portrait featuring a Diet Coke,” he said as the camera zoomed in on Trump’s beverage.
“Also, you look at that picture and you know that Trump can only name, like, two of the other presidents in that painting,” he said.
