Jimmy Kimmel participates in ‘Draft Dodger Don’ on D-Day

2 Min Read

On the 80th anniversary of D-Day, Jimmy Kimmel reminded viewers of what former President Trump thinks of veterans.

The day marks the date when Allied forces stormed the beaches of northern France.

Kimmel initially credited “Draft Dodger Don” for his “respectful” social media post to mark the date.

Trump wrote on Truth Social: “Today we honor the immortal heroes who landed in Normandy 80 years ago. The men of D-Day will forever live in history as some of the bravest, noblest and greatest Americans to ever walk the earth. They shed their blood and thousands gave their lives in defense of American freedom. They are in our hearts today and forever.”

Kimmel said he agreed with the above and would be “even somewhat moved by” the post if he had not written twelve hours earlier: “What I have experienced, no one has ever experienced… I am under siege!”

It comes as President Biden was in Normandy to remember the veterans.

Kimmel also pointed out one of the consequences of Trump being a convicted felon. There are 37 countries he is not allowed to visit and he is also not allowed to carry a concealed weapon.

“It’s pretty crazy: Someone who isn’t allowed to carry a concealed weapon should be allowed to carry a nuclear weapon,” Kimmel joked. “This is like your parents saying, ‘You know what, you can’t get a puppy, but if you get good grades, we’ll buy you a werewolf.'”

Trump has previously said he had a concealed carry permit and owned two handguns.

“If he wants to shoot someone on Fifth Avenue, he’s going to have to do it with a crossbow,” he added.
