Jimmy Kimmel Trolls Trump Over Stormy Daniels' Conspiracy Using a 3rd-Grader to Explain 'Fake News'

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel ridiculed President Donald Trump on Wednesday night for retweeting a fan's post on accuser Stormy Daniels claim that she was attacked by an associate of his, calling it a "con job," when it turns out the fan has a history of running con jobs of her own.

The ABC host shared Trump's early morning tweet that read, “A sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools (but they know it)!”

“Turns out this meme came from a supporter of his in Scotland, Shenna Fox, she's a fanatical Trump fan,” Kimmel explained. “Believe it or not she is actually guilty of a con job herself. Last year she was convicted of stealing money from her church choir to pay for a trip to meet Trump in New York. And this is who he's retweeting, someone he should probably have a restraining order against.”

“Even the idea that Trump is scrolling — the president is scrolling through Twitter looking for things to retweet is nuts. It is absolutely nuts!” the host added. “Reportedly his advisers tried to convince him that he would only make things worse if he addressed this on Twitter. But you know that's like telling a 4-year-old with a squirt gun not to shoot you with it. You’re going to get wet.”

Kimmel then explained that Trump was in need of some schooling on what really is fake news, so he invited "local third-grader named Noah to break it down with him."
