Making the announcement, Kimmel’s show noted how very much history has been made, in the two years since Trump was sworn in as 45th POTUS.
In a throwback to the Bob Hope variety shows of the 70s and 80s, Kimmel intends to celebrate that accomplishment with celebrities, songs, “covfefe and hamberders,” JKL said.
Jimmy Kimmel Live Intermission Accomplished: A Halftime Tribute to Trump will air on Monday in JKL’s regular 11:35PM ET|PT/10:35 PM CT timeslot.
Stars helping Kimmel to celebrate will include:
Among the “historic” things accomplished during Trump’s first half-term in the White House is the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. Kimmel already has celebrated that, providing work to federal employees impacted by the stand-off in Washington, D.C.
Kimmel has put a government employee to work on his show every night since the plan was announced and has said he’s going to keep it up until the shutdown ends. First up was John Kostelnik, a guard at the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, CA, who sat in with JKL house band Cleto and the Cletones.
