Jennifer Lawrence impersonates Trump to intro Jimmy Kimmel's 2017 Halloween candy prank

Posted on

Jennifer Lawrence guest-hosted Thursday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, meaning the Oscar-winning star was tasked with introducing host Jimmy Kimmel’s annual Halloween prank — and mocking President Donald Trump in the process.

“We have something for you that is both a trick and a treat. Every year, Jimmy invites parents to pretend they ate all of their kids’ Halloween candy. And once again those parents delivered in a huge and bigly way,” Lawrence said, impersonating the way Trump says two of his seemingly favorite words. “So here it is, the seventh annual ‘Hey Jimmy Kimmel, I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.'” Lawrence took one more shot at the president, adding, “hashtag sad.”

In the video, as is customary, parents tell their children they ate all the kids’ hard-won candy. The kids, in turn, burst into tears.

On Wednesday’s show, guest host Channing Tatum showed how he had pranked his 4-year-old daughter, a sequence that left Tatum traumatized enough to apologize to the youngster on-air. Kimmel himself, who is off this week, also pranked his daughter with less tearful results.

Watch this year’s prank above.
