‘The Fraudigal Son’
Donald Trump Jr. appeared in court on Wednesday to testify in the $250 million civil fraud trial against his father, his family and their company.
Jimmy Kimmel referred to Trump’s eldest as “the fraudigal son.”
“It’s getting serious. There’s even some worry Don Jr. could be tried as an adult in this one.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“The lawyer was, like, ‘We now call to the stand Monster Energy drink in human form.’” — JIMMY FALLON
“Here’s the thing about Don Jr.: What he lacks in intelligence, he also lacks in charisma.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“Don Jr. actually had to leave early because he realized he left Eric in the car with the windows shut.” — JIMMY FALLON
The Punchiest Punchlines (Whose Kids Are These? Edition)
“Ahead of Donald Trump Jr.’s testimony in the Trump Organization’s ongoing civil fraud trial, former President Trump attacked the judge in an early morning post today on Truth Social and warned him to, ‘Leave my children alone,’ adding, ‘You know, like I did.’” — SETH MEYERS
“[imitating Trump] Leave my children alone! It’s easy — I’ve done it their whole lives!” — JIMMY KIMMEL
“[imitating Trump] How dare you come after my sweet, innocent children: Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric, or, as I call them, Little Me, Lady Me and Wonder Gums.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT
“As with all cases involving the family Trump, D.J.T.J. was sworn in on an upside-down Bible. He will finish his testimony tomorrow, and then Eric will testify, and then Trump will claim he’s never met either one of them.” — JIMMY KIMMEL
