ABC late night host Jimmy Kimmel brought back his puppet parody of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway to poke fun at President Donald Trump’s trip to Asia.
“This is a historic visit, his bone spurs have finally healed up,” Kimmel joked. “He’s finally able to set his tender pink feet on Vietnamese soil.”
“While he’s in Vietnam, Trump is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who just happens to be visiting there too,” Kimmel said while making air quotes. “This will be Trump’s third meeting with Putin – Trump has spent more quality time with Vladimir Putin than he has with Barron this year.”
Kimmel then introduced puppet Kellyanne directly from the White House, apparently celebrating the anniversary of Trump’s election while wearing a MAGA party hat.
“I think President Trump deserves an apology,” puppet Kellyanne declared. “From all the liberal losers who said that he tried to get out of going to Vietnam. He’s going. He’s there, okay? Happy now?”
“Suck it, John McCain,” she continued. “Our president went to Vietnam, too. And guess what? He didn’t get captured.”
“Do you know how painful bone spurs in the foot are?” she asked. “It’s more painful than watching three hours of Anderson Pooper.”
“Tell me Kellyanne, what are the president and Putin going to be talking about at this meeting tomorrow?” Kimmel asked.
“Well, let’s just say everything is on the table,” she replied.
“Alright, what does that mean?” Kimmel asked.
“What do you think it means?” she asked. “Have you ever seen a table? Have you ever put something on a table? Now, just picture everything on a table.”
“That’s not actually helpful at all,” Kimmel said.
“You’re not very helpful,” she shot back, before noticing a “shrimp cocktail.”
“I feel like we caught you at a bad time Kellyanne…” Kimmel said.
“Maybe it’s a bad time for you,” puppet Kellyanne said. “But for me it’s a great time. Who wants to get wasted?”
Watch the clip below:
After reports of a planned meeting between Trump and Putin, the White House now insists there will be no “formal” discussions between the two leaders, though they spoke briefly while opening the APEC summit in Vietnam.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders cited “scheduling conflicts on both sides,” but added there may be informal discussions during the summit.
“Regarding a Putin meeting, there was never a meeting confirmed, and there will not be one that takes place due to scheduling conflicts on both sides,” Sanders said. “There is no formal meeting or anything scheduled for them.”
“Now, they’re going to be in the same place,” she added. “Are they going to bump into each other and say hello? Certainly possible, and likely. But in terms of a scheduled, formal meeting, there’s not one on the calendar and we don’t anticipate that there will be one.”
