Jimmy Kimmel Celebrates Devin Nunes’ #YachtCocaineProstitutes Twitter Trend

Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel updated viewers on California Rep. Devin Nunes’ latest lawsuit against the media, in his monologue.

“It appears that there is one Republican with skin even thinner than Donald Trump,” Jimmy Kimmel snarked, describing the congressman as “basically the toilet paper stuck to Trump’s shoe,” in a nod to the much replayed video of POTUS climbing the stairs to Air Force One with toilet paper in tow.

Last month, Devin Nunes filed a $250 million lawsuit against Twitter and a couple of Twitter accounts “that were making fun of him,” Kimmel described.

Now, Nunes is taking action against his hometown newspaper, the Fresno Bee, suing for $150 million, because of a story that linked a company in which he is an investor to a yacht party at which the entertainment reportedly included cocaine and prostitutes.

“And, in a delightful twist, as he was filing this lawsuit, as he announced it, to separate himself from the cocaine and prostitutes the hashtag #YachtCocaineProstitutes became the No. 1 trending thing on twitter,” Kimmel marveled.
“It’s nice when we can all agree on something, isn’t it?” the ABC late-night host enthused, admitting that when he saw that hashtag on Twitter, “I just assumed Kid Rock had a new album out.”
“Devin Nunes is a very angry little snowflake,” Kimmel described, urging viewers, “Do not use this hashtag when writing about him, or he will sue you,” as  #YachtCocaineProstitutes played on screen.
