During a rambling speech on Saturday in Pennsylvania, GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump said, among other things, that movies aren’t good anymore. The comment, the ending to a 92-word rant that began with comments about corporations moving from the U.S. to Mexico, was mocked online — and Jimmy Kimmel tried his hand at deciphering it during Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“I think we might need to go through that, word by word,” Kimmel said after playing the clip from Trump’s speech. He then walked over to a blackboard with the rant written out. It read as follows:
“People are negotiating — and owners of companies are negotiating — to move your companies out to Mexico and other places. You watch. And it’s getting worse. It’s not getting better, it’s getting worse. And you’re unsuspecting right now. You say to your wife: ‘Let’s go to a movie after Trump.’ But you won’t do that because you’ll be so high and so excited that no movie is going to satisfy you. Okay? No movie. You know why? Honestly? Because they don’t make movies like they used to — is that right?”
“I don’t know if it’s right,” Kimmel said after reading through the word salad. “Was Bridget Jones’s Baby better than Bridget Jones’s Diary? No, I don’t think it was. Donald Trump might have a point.” Kimmel then turned to his sidekick Guillermo Rodriguez. “They don’t make movies like they used to, and I’ll tell you something: Mexico is going to pay for it,” he added.
