Jimmy Kimmel Suggests Real Reason For This 'Shameless' Move By Trump

The late night host said it's all about the former president's increasingly desperate financial condition.

Jimmy Kimmel is tearing into Donald Trump for pushing daughter-in-law Lara Trump as co-chair of the Republican National Committee.

She’s vowed to spend all of the organization’s money on her father-in-law’s presidential campaign — but on Wednesday’s episode of his late night show, Kimmel suggested another reason for the move.

“Making your daughter-in-law chairperson of the RNC, even for him it’s shameless,” Kimmel said of Donald Trump. “He’s trying to turn the Republican Party into a family business because his other family business is about to get shut down by the state of New York.”

A judge in New York is expected to soon deliver a verdict in a civil fraud case involving the former president, which could cost him as much as $370 million and strip him of his ability to do business in the state.

“In case you’re wondering what Lara Trump’s credentials are, she has a degree from a culinary school, she once worked as a personal trainer, she was a producer on ‘Inside Edition,’ she hosted something called ‘Real News Update’ from 2017-2020, and she married Eric Trump,” Kimmel said, naming one of the former president’s sons.

“The last time [Donald] Trump endorsed a blond this unqualified for office was when he endorsed himself,” he added.
