Summary (IA Generated)

To start the gag, Kimmel brought up the New York Times report Tuesday that in the last few weeks of Trump’s presidency, Gaetz tried to convince Trump to give him and several of his associates “blanket pre-emptive pardons” to cover “any crimes they may have committed.

“You know you haven’t done anything wrong when you check in with the investigation-report/”>president to ask for a pardon, in case you happen to get accused of a sex crime somewhere down the line.

”.

Of course as Kimmel noted, according to the Times Trump didn’t end up giving Gaetz a pardon after his legal advisers convinced him it would “set a bad precedent.

At the time they were only interested in setting terrible precedents,” Kimmel joked, possibly referring to the myriad misdeed Trump committed during the end of his presidency, which included his attempt to overthrow the 2020 election by inciting a violent seditious riot.

That really is – that’s got a ring to it,” Kimmel continued.

In a statement to the Times, Gaetz denied the report, saying through his spokesperson: “Entry-level political operatives have conflated a pardon call from Representative Gaetz — where he called for President Trump to pardon ‘everyone from himself, to his administration, to Joe Exotic’ — with these false and increasingly bizarre, partisan allegations against him.

That’s when Kimmel got to Trump’s meager defense of Gaetz.

“Trump weighed in on the story – with a two-sentence statement,” Kimmel continued, reading the statement verbatim: “Congressman Matt Gaetz has never asked me for a pardon.

Which is sad because Matt Gaetz really was the son investigation-report/”>Donald Trump never had even though he had a couple.
