WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel Hilariously Skewers Trump's Deranged Time Magazine Interview

Between a record-low approval rating, a dead-on-arrival health care bill, and his own FBI director testifying against him, it's safe to say Donald Trump is having a rough week. Jimmy Kimmel is all too eager to remind him.


"Yesterday, [Trump] gave an interview and said he's right about everything, his instincts are always right," the late night host observed Thursday. "He told the reporter who was interviewing him, he said, 'I think I'm doing okay because I'm president and you're not.'"

Nearly half of Americans said Trump should have been impeached in February. 

"Let's check back in a week to see if that's still the case," the host joked. "But you wonder, I mean, who says that? I wonder how many times a day he says that."

Kimmel imagined one such scenario: "'We're ordering buckets from KFC today because 'I'm president, and you're not.'" 

"It is important to know who is president and who is not," he deadpanned. "So let's go through it real quickly."
