‘Scandal’ Cast Pranks Josh Malina With an Old Lady and Her Fake Heart Attack (Video)

You think you’re pretty clever, don’t you, Josh Malina? Well, the jokes on you for the very first time, thanks to an elaborate hoax the cast of “Scandal” threw their notorious prankster co-star into — thanks to a little help from Jimmy Kimmel.

When the Shondaland show’s cast appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” following the series finale on Thursday, the host rolled tape of the revenge he helped Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) and Associates pull off on the actor, who plays David Rosen — and is known for being more than a bit of a troublemaker on set.

Kimmel set up Malina to think he and co-star Katie Lowes (who plays Quinn Perkins) were going to surprise a family watching “Scandal,” but little did he know they were actually actors. And he was about to give an elderly woman a “heart attack” by popping a very loud canister of confetti.

The resulting scene is both horrifying and hilarious — as we know that Nana will be OK, but Malina didn’t. He bends down by her side as they and says, “It was supposed to be a nice surprise, not a horrible surprise!” and wonders why no one told them about her heart condition.

Then, Kimmel comes in with Guillermo Rodriguez and Malina knows what’s up. “That’s the worst thing that anyone has ever done to me! That is the worst that anyone has ever done to anybody!” he says.

Well, thinking he may have killed someone is hopefully enough retribution for all the ways he’s messed with his castmates over the years. Maybe.

Jimmy Kimmel: If Trump Is Innocent, ‘Why Does It Matter if Cohen Flips?’

The story of Michael Cohen is sticking with us for the duration, and Jimmy Kimmel had some interesting thoughts about the latest development: that some folks in Donald Trump’s inner circle are apparently worried that Cohen, in the wake of the FBI raid on his office and home last week, will seek a deal with investigators and spill the beans on Donald Trump.

“The bigliest concern for Team Trump right now — the story that is reportedly driving him to the edge — is whether or not his personal lawyer Michael Cohen is going to ‘flip’ on him. Cohen has been under federal investigation for months, and many of Trump’s closest friends and advisers are worried that he’ll make a deal to tell federal prosecutors everything he knows,” Kimmel said.

“One of the President’s former lawyers told Trump that, on a scale of one to 100, where 100 represents full protection of the president, Cohen ‘isn’t even at a 1.’ Which, I don’t know about that. I mean, Does this look like the face of someone who is going to crack under pressure from federal investigators? I don’t think so. He looks like a dog that got caught peeing on the rug. But who knows. Michael Cohen once said he’d take a bullet for Donald Trump. And Robert Mueller was like, ‘Oh, great! Stand right there. You want a cigarette or anything?’ “

Kimmel then expressed a pretty keen observation about the whole thing: that their concern over whether Cohen will flip sure makes it seem like Trump must be guilty of something.

“Trump confidantes are openly concerned that Cohen might flip. Which, I think that alone is interesting? I mean, if he isn’t guilty of anything, why does it matter if he flips? Flip away! Flip like an acrobat!” Kimmel joked.

That aside, Kimmel also wondered why anything would think somebody would stay loyal to Trump.

“But here’s the thing — almost no one is loyal to Donald Trump, because Donald Trump isn’t loyal to them. He cheats in business, he cheats in golf, he cheats in marriage. He definitely cheats on his taxes, that’s why we haven’t seen them,” Kimmel said. “He throws everybody who works for him under the bus eventually. ‘Loyalty’ to Donald Trump means, ‘You scratch my back, and then we’re done.’ “

Also Read: Jimmy Kimmel: Trump Loves Giving Thumbs Up Because His ‘Thumb Is the Only Normal-Sized Finger on His Hand’

Kimmel then played a clip of a reporter asking Trump about the situation, to which Trump responded by talking about something else entirely.

“Thank you, everybody. I hope you saw the crowds in key west. they’ve never seen anything like that. It was really very inspirational. And what we just witnessed was incredible. Those crowds coming in, I think even the media will have to say that was quite something,” Trump said in the clip.

“That was quite something, he ignored the question,” Kimmel said. “And went into yet another monologue about how big his crowds were. Someday, I feel like he’ll be in prison going, ‘You should have seen them, all the way back to the edge, they were chanting my name.’ “

In Time’s article introducing the list, Edward Felsenthal wrote, that the list is a “designation of individuals whose time, in our estimation, is now.”

“The TIME 100 isn’t a measure of power, though many on the list wield it,” he continued. “Nor is it a collection of milestones accumulated. As our staff considers candidates, we often find ourselves wowed by those with stunning lifetime achievements. But editorial director Dan Macsai, maestro of the TIME 100, brings us back to the key question: Was this their year?”

Jimmy Kimmel: Trump Loves Giving Thumbs-Up Because His ‘Thumb Is the Only Normal-Sized Finger on His Hand’

Jimmy Kimmel made note of one of Donald Trump’s more fascinating tics during his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” monologue Wednesday night when he was discussing Trump’s meeting this week with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe — Trump’s propensity for giving a thumbs-up sign in photos, and how very often everyone else in the photo with him also gives a thumbs-up sign.

“Speaking of nuts, President Trump is at Mar-a-Lago this week to meet-slash-golf with the prime minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe. It was his 108th day on the golf course since taking office. But he wants to make it very clear they’re there to work. In fact, he tweeted, ‘Prime Minister Abe Shinzo of Japan and myself this morning building an even deeper and better relationship while playing a quick round of golf at Trump International Golf Club.’ A quick round of golf and a plug for my golf course,” Kimmel joked, before taking a closer look at the picture that was attached to the tweet.

“Look at this photo. Zoom into this. I stared at this for four full minutes today. Look at these two. They’re all dressed up in their golf outfits. Trump gives that dopey thumb up that he always gives,” Kimmel said, as this image displayed on screen:

“Donald Trump loves giving the thumb up in pictures, making everyone else feel like they have to do it too. And they do do it,” Kimmel said, as he began listing off a series of situations in which Trump gave a thumbs up and whoever else was in the picture also gave the thumbs up. “Here he is with the republican leadership at dinner last week.”

“This is the staff on Air Force One.”

“This is last month with the Saudi prince.”

“The reason he does it, it’s interesting,” Kimmel continued, about to deliver the punchline. “The reason he does it is the thumb is the only normal-sized finger on his hand.”

Kimmel then took a shot at another thing that Trump did during Prime Minister Abe’s visit.

“So after the golf thing and thumbing, the president and Prime Minister Abe held a joint press conference at which Trump spoke both fondly and oddly about his November visit to Japan,” Kimmel said, before a clip played in which Trump made the following comment:

“It was a true privilege to be welcomed to the magnificent land of Japan, or as I’ve heard all my life, the land of the rising sun. It’s true. So great.”

“So great. Even greater than you realize. You know he only knows that from the Wesley Snipes movie, right?” Kimmel quipped, referring to the 1993 crime drama “Rising Sun,” which starred Snipes and Sean Connery.

Also Read: Jimmy Kimmel: Comey Book ‘Combines the Two Things Trump Hates Most — Criticism and Reading’

Kimmel also had some shots to take an another key Republican figure in the U.S. government: Mitch McConnell.

“With all that’s going on right now, lawmakers in the House and Senate are concerned that Trump might actually fire Robert Mueller and all hell will break loose. So they’re working on bipartisan legislation that would protect the special counsel from the president,” Kimmel said. “Republicans Lindsey Graham and Thom Tillis are trying to push this through. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell says he won’t allow a vote on it. McConnell was on Fox News yesterday and Neil Cavuto asked if there was a need for legislation to prevent the president from firing the guy in charge of investigating him.”

Then a clip played from that interview, in which McConnell made this comment: “That’s not necessary. There’s no indication that Mueller’s going to be fired. I don’t think the president’s going to do that.”

Kimmel, of course, thought that’s an odd stance given, well, the entire history of Donald Trump.

“You don’t? Everybody else does. Why do they want to introduce legislation? Listen, his catch phrase, before he was even president, his catch phrase was, ‘you’re fired.’ No chance he might fire the guy? He’s already tried to fire him twice but his people talked him out of it,” Kimmel said, before slapping McConnell with a joke about how he looks like a turtle. “But Mitch McConnell doesn’t think it’s necessary. The only time Mitch McConnell ever sticks his neck out is to slowly eat a piece of lettuce.”
