In Tuesday's monologue Jimmy Kimmel gave us the quote of the week:

“Rarely does a president of the United States interrupt primetime television to warn us about a completely made-up thing. [Trump's speech lasted about 10 minutes,] which, according to Stormy Daniels, is about eight minutes longer than he usually lasts.”

Kimmel also reached a more general audience with the Truth about the Wall and the Trump Shutdown:

JIMMY KIMMEL: If you are Donald Trump — God forbid — and you make a dumb promise during your campaign like 200 different times to build a wall, and your plan to fulfill that promise you didn’t know you were going to have to fulfill is to get people panicked enough to waste $5 billion on it, going on TV and telling us there are ‘bad hombres’ sneaking over the border, that’s not going to do it.

Thanks, Jimmy!

PS Stormy Daniels folded laundry in her underwear as alternative programming to Trump's speech, with the background playlist of

Pink Floyd-Another Brick in the Wall
Taylor Swift- We Are Never Getting Back Together
and Tom Petty- I Won't Back Down.

She had good ratings.
