Kimmel posted a preview clip of tonight’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! in which Bush invites Trump aboard the Access Hollywood bus to make his escape from D.C. and the White House. The faux news clip, captioned “And it ends just as it began,” starts with Trump waving farewell to the press corps as he walks toward the Access Hollywood Across America Tour bus and Bush, as Bush waves Trump aboard. “Donald, hey look at you, you big lug. Get in there, come on. Game over,” Bush exclaims. “Very fine seats on both sides!” The last comment clearly was a nod to Trump’s infamous quote defending white nationalists who protested in Charlottesville in 2017, proclaiming that the crowd included “some very fine people on both sides.”

Of course, no one can forget the release of the 2005 audio and video of then-candidate Trump and Bush on the Access Hollywood bus when Bush was a co-host of the entertainment show. As the two spoke, Trump was heard speaking crudely about women, saying among other things, that when you’re famous enough, you can grab a woman by her genitals. The tape, released just two months before the 2016 election, was believed at the time to be the final nail in the coffin for Trump’s candidacy, but the scandal was immediately met by a counter-scandal: the Wikileaks publication of the John Podesta emails. The former Celebrity Apprentice host went on to win the electoral college, if not the popular vote.

Kimmel also posted a gif of the nation’s iconic landmarks and political figures saying farewell to Trump, set to Steam’s hit 1969 pop song “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye”.
