Jimmy Kimmel recently highlighted Donald Trump’s absence from the Republican presidential debate, which took place in Miami. The debate featured five GOP participants: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and gadfly Vivek Ramaswamy.
Kimmel humorously referred to these contenders as “hopefuls,” highlighting their perceived lack of a chance to defeat Donald Trump in the race. He emphasized the absurdity of holding such debates without the frontrunner, emphasizing the unusual situation where one wishes for Trump’s presence in such events, told HuffPost.
To fill the void, Kimmel humorously conceptualized a debate where Trump would essentially be debating himself, quipping that such a scenario would be akin to “Melania’s worst nightmare come true.”
During his Wednesday night monologue, Kimmel also delved into Trump’s ongoing legal matters in New York, providing further insight into the former president’s latest developments and activities.
