Jimmy Kimmel Bought a Bunch of Trump Merchandise Only To Find Out Most of It Came from China (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel spent a portion of his monologue on Wednesday night talking about Democrat Conor Lamb’s victory over Republican Rick Saccone in the special congressional election in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, even though Donald Trump made a big show of endorsing Saccone — going so far as to give that now-infamous speech at Saccone’s rally on Saturday.

Kimmel used that discussion to segue into a takedown of the Trump family’s online store, which sells all sorts of gaudy and overpriced merchandise with the Trump name plastered all over all of it.

“This loss came only a week after the president made a very blatant attempt to woo voters in Pennsylvania by calling for heavy tariffs on foreign aluminum and steel. Trump as you know wants to focus on America, and American-made products and goods. So I wondered, because I agree with that, how things were going on his family website, trumpstore.com,” Kimmel said.

“Have you been there? Because I’m sure Eric and Donald Jr take this American thing very seriously. These guys are red, white and blue to the core. They’re like a couple of flags wearing hair gel, these two. And in case you wonder what they do all day — they run trumpstore.com. This is the Trump family’s official online store that features, quote, ‘the very latest in Trump-branded merchandise, apparel, headwear, gifts, and much more.’”

You can probably guess where this is going (since I spoiled it in the headline), but Kimmel ended up buying a pile of Trump merch to see how American it really was.

“And you know my wife was yelling at me the whole time I was on the site saying, ‘Don’t order anything from that!’ I ordered a bunch of stuff from it, and this is what happened,” Kimmel said.

Then Kimmel presented the box of stuff he got from the Trump Store, and it included a gold-sealed note from Donald Jr and Eric thanking him for being one of their first customers. From there, Kimmel went through the items one by one and said where each of them was made. Surprise! None of it said it was made in America.

“First of all I ordered a white Trump golf hat, which I don’t know if you can see but it’s made in China,” Kimmel said as a camera zoomed in on the label. “I got a coffee mug that says Trump on it, which is made in Thailand. I got a golf club cover which is made in China but decorated in the USA. And that’s something. I got a Trump signature duffel bag which is made in China. I got a Trump signature shoe bag which is made in China. I got a blanket which is made — guess where this was made. Yeah. China.”

“I got something for my son, a toddler bib just like the one the president wears when he eats cheeseburgers in bed. Made in — you want to guess where this one was made?” Kimmel asked the audience, which yelled “China” in unison. “No, Peru.”

Then Kimmel noted a pair of items, a gold bar coin bank and a pet bandanna, which didn’t have any indication on them where they were made. Kimmel said he looked up the rules for listing country of origin on imported products, and read a statute that said that “failure to properly report product origin can result in substantial penalties. Companies can face up to $500,000 in fines per violation or double the loss or gain from the violation related to these violations.”

“This could be very expensive, not to mention this has got to be embarrassing. Are they capable of shame? I mean, Trump’s whole platform is about supporting american companies. His company isn’t even supporting America. you know what I’m going to do? I’m sure Eric and Don Jr. didn’t know about this. I’m sure this was a simple oversight. I’ll just file an official complaint, and let them sort it all out,” Kimmel said before comparing the younger Trumps to Saddam Hussein’s sons for good measure.

“The important thing is that the president’s sons Uday and Qusay are making a lot of money.”

'SNL': Eric Trump Gets Scared by a Pop-Up Book on Weekend Update (Video)

‘SNL’: Eric Trump Gets Scared by a Pop-Up Book on Weekend Update (Video)

“Weekend Update” checked in with the “SNL” version of Donald Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and as usual, Eric was just inches away from messing everything up.

Don Jr., played by Mikey Day, routinely brings Eric, played by Alex Moffat, on TV appearances and to meetings, even though the “SNL” version of the duo finds Eric to be pretty dumb. True to form, Moffat’s Eric kept interrupting Day’s Don Jr. during their “Weekend Update” interview with anchor Colin Jost, blurting out sensitive information.

Jost asked the brothers onto “Weekend Update” to comment on reports of “chaos in the White House.” He first asked Moffat and Day’s Trump brothers what they’d been doing since they were last interviewed on “Weekend Update.”

“What we do best — taking the Trump Organization to new heights. I took a trip to India, which is an incredibly poor country, where I’m hoping to make a lot of money,” Don Jr. responded.

“I saw ‘Paddington 2’!” Eric chimed in.

Throughout the interview, Moffat’s Eric carefully watched Day’s Don Jr., mimicking his hand motions as Don Jr. answered questions.

“What do you have to say to the claim that the White House is now in chaos?” Jost asked.

Chuckling, Don Jr. replied, “I know it’s played out, Colin, but ‘fake news!’ Our father has a nickname for you members of the elitist liberal media–“

“Goddamn Jews!” Eric interrupted.

“Eric, that was awful. Bud, no. That was a bad one, bud” Don Jr. said as Jost laughed.

Eric kept interrupting with answers Don Jr. didn’t want Jost to hear. Jost brought up the Stormy Daniels scandal that was back in the news this week, about Trump’s alleged affair with the porn actress and Trump’s lawyer paying Daniels “hush money” to keep the story quiet.

“She and my father never had a relationship,” Don Jr. told him.

“They just wrestled in bed,” Eric blurted out.

To distract Eric, Don Jr. pulled out a children’s pop-up book for Eric to read. When Eric stared at the book in confusion, Don Jr. opened it for him, causing Eric to scream in alarm as the first scene popped up.

Don Jr. explained that it was a pop-up book.

“Pop-pop?” Eric asked, trying to understand.

“Pop-up,” Don Jr. corrected. “We’ll put it on a flash card bud, it’s okay. Just read.”

Moffat’s Eric spent the rest of the interview investigating the pop-up book as Day’s Don Jr. tried to finish the interview. Don Jr. wrapped up the interview by saying he and Eric had to run.

“We’re going Good Will Hunting,” Eric told Jost.

“It’s big game hunting,” Don Jr. said.

“Is Matt Damon still going to be there?” Eric asked.

“Matt Damon was never going to be there,” Don Jr. returned.

‘SNL’ Weekend Update’s Colin Jost: ‘Trump Is Basically Carmen San Diego’ (Video)

Considering this week’s news from Donald Trump’s White House was a cavalcade of madness, Weekend Update on this week’s “SNL” had a lot of ground to cover. And hosts Colin Jost and Michael Che managed to run down the bulk of it, from Kim Jong Un’s invitation to Donald Trump hating on video games, in the opening part of the segment, hopping from topic to topic with almost reckless abandon.

One of the topics they hit as they went through it all was Trump’s alleged attempt to open a secret back channel to communicate with the Russian government when Trump transition official Erik Prince met with a man who had ties to the Kremlin in the Seychelles, a meeting that apparently has piqued the interest of special counsel Robert Mueller.

“This week it was revealed that in January of 2017 a secret meeting took place in the Seychelles between a Trump associate and an official from the United Arab Emirates and a banker with ties to the Kremlin. So, sounds innocent,” Jost said. “At least with all the Mueller stuff we’re learning a lot about geography. Trump is basically Carmen San Diego. Except he wants to deport anyone with a name like Carmen San Diego.”

Another item, which was a big enough deal that it was the talk of late night every night this week, was the resignation of Trump’s chief economic adviser Gary Cohn after Trump made it clear he was not going to change his mind on ordering new import tariffs on steel and aluminum and maybe start a trade war.

“Gary Cohn resigned as the White House’s top economic adviser. Cohn hopes to work somewhere a little less chaotic than the White House, like, I don’t know, a Walmart on Black Friday?” Che said.

“In response to his resignation, the Dow Jones fell more than 300 points. Now, 300 points sounds like a lot but keep in mind I have no idea what the hell the Dow Jones is. I react to the Dow the same way I react to my boys when they tell me they’re about to have a kid. I’m like, ‘Word, how you feel about that?’”

Ellen DeGeneres Hits Back at Eric Trump: ‘What Is the Deep State? Is It Near Dollywood?’ (Video)

Ellen DeGeneres has hit back at first son Eric Trump’s suggestion that she’s a part of the “Deep State” bent on undermining democracy.

“What is the Deep State?” the comedian asked in an advance clip from her Thursday show, before joking, “Is it near Dollywood? Because I’m in if it is.”

Eric Trump, the president’s second son, on Tuesday questioned Twitter’s automated recommended follows, including a screen grab that had suggested he follow Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Ellen DeGeneres.

“Shocking,” the 33-year-old Trump tweeted with a screenshot of the suggestions. “Once again, here are the @Twitter ‘suggestions’ of who I should follow. #DeepState.”

DeGeneres said she was initially confused by the “Deep State” reference. “So, I found out Deep State is supposed to be a group of people they believe are trying to undermine Donald Trump — which is ridiculous because no one has undermined Donald Trump more than Donald Trump,” the host said.

“I am honored that you think that I’m powerful enough to be part of a government conspiracy,” she continued.

“Even if somebody wanted me to be involved, I don’t have that kind of time,” she joked. “I’ve got my gay agenda meetings on Mondays. I’ve got on Wednesday, Beyoncé and I host an illuminati brunch. And then Portia [De Rossi] and I on the weekends are desperately trying to have a baby so I can’t. I don’t have time.”

DeGeneres also told the audience that when she initially saw her name trending on Twitter, she thought it was due to the success her NBC game show, “Game of Games,” which had a strong night in the ratings.

DeGeneres concluded her thoughts on the matter by giving Trump a primer in Twitter’s algorithms put her on his suggested follows list.

“But there’s probably another explanation for why Twitter suggested that you follow me. I mean it could be a conspiracy or it could be because your sister Ivanka follows me on Twitter, and your sister Tiffany follows me on Twitter and maybe you should follow me,” she said. “I mean, because I post a lot of cute videos. We might not agree on politics, but I think we can both agree that this is cute…”

“Deep State” has become a catch-all conspiracy theory, widely discredited, that suggests there is an effort by government employees and others to influence state policy heedless of democratically elected leadership.

Needless to say, internet users were quick to point out that none of the three people Eric Trump noted in his tweet are government employees or hold elective office.

“Ellen DeGeneres and two people not in office = ‘The Deep State,’” noted one commenter. “Eric really is the dumbest Trump.”

Following his tweet, the younger Trump was roasted by users who laughed off his claims.

‘Melania Trump’ Is Back on Colbert to Bash Ivana, Defend White House Christmas Decor (Video)

Laura Benanti took a few minutes off from Broadway to reprise her Melania Trump character on Thursday’s “Late Show.”

Speaking with Stephen Colbert, the faux First Lady responded to some shots that President Trump’s first wife Ivana has been publicly firing her way. We think this Benanti quote best sums up Melania’s feelings toward the mother of Don Jr., Eric and Ivanka Trump: “Bye, b—-!”

Later, “Melania” defended her much-maligned White House Christmas decor — some of which she may use to finally escape all of this.

Citing Santa Claus as a true inspiration, Benanti’s character signed off with the following: “If you can come down a chimney to go into a house, then you can go up a chimney to get out of a house.
