Is Jimmy Kimmel Planning to Roast Donald Trump at the Oscars?

U.S. President Donald Trump may want to avoid watching Sunday’s Academy Awards because host Jimmy Kimmel has a few zingers lined up.

The comedian and talk show host told The Hollywood Reporter he hasn’t yet decided how much Trump material he will perform at the Oscars, but it depends on “some new crazy thing” that happens in the lead-up to the ceremony.

There has already been plenty to talk about this week, including Trump firing an adviser who was critical of his policies.

“I don’t know where we’ll be mentally on [February] 26,” said Kimmel.

“I don’t know if we’ll feel like we’re past that stuff or if there will be some new crazy thing we’re all talking about—my guess is that there will probably be some new crazy thing we’re all talking about, so it really depends largely on what’s going on that week.

“I would definitely make those decisions the day of or day before as to how much material I do and what my spin on it is.”

Trump previously spoke out against the Golden Globes in January after a scathing monologue by actor Meryl Streep.Try Newsweek: Subscription offers
