Donald Trump Gets a Cameo in Jimmy Kimmel’s Latest “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets”

After spending last week battling the GOP’s latest healthcare bill, Jimmy Kimmel returned to more familiar territory with another round of his most popular recurring bit: Celebrities Read Mean Tweets. In addition to Gal Gadot, Jennifer Lawrence, Alec Baldwin, Emma Watson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau a.k.a. Jaime Lannister, Kimmel rounded up Kristen Bell, Michael Keaton, Jim Parsons, Elisabeth Moss, and many more.

But something has changed since Kimmel first introduced this particular bit several years ago. The most famously mean tweeter, Donald Trump, is now the president of the United States. Kimmel, no stranger to receiving a mean tweet or two from Trump supporters himself, had Baldwin read a message Trump tweeted out before the president realized his vitriol was helping make both Baldwin and Saturday Night Live more popular than ever.

But while Baldwin may have had the most high-profile tweet, it was soon-to-be S.N.L. host Kumail Nanjiani who had the best response to a tweet about his penis. A classic “your mom” joke has never landed quite so beautifully.
