Jimmy Kimmel calls out Donald Trump's 'lie' about their relationship


Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel has fired up about an interaction he had with Donald Trump.

Jimmy Kimmel has accused Donald Trump of lying about their relationship, in a fiery monologue on Jimmy Kimmel Live overnight.

The comedian denied a story Trump told his supporters at a South Carolina rally last month that Kimmel waited eagerly for him outside the studio when he appeared as a guest on the TV host's show.

"Even the people who like the president know he makes things up, but still it's weird to hear him tell a lie that is specifically about you," Kimmel said.

He then fought fire with fire by sharing his own unlikely story: “This is what really happened that night: Donald Trump showed up one night outside our show, banging on the backstage door. It was 2007.

"He had a half-finished bucket of chicken under his arm. And he was screaming that he needed to use the bathroom. But unfortunately, there was someone in the bathroom. I believe it was Zach Braff who was in the bathroom.

"So Donald took a look around, he stuffed the remainder of the chicken in his jacket, he dropped his pants, he did his business in the bucket. That’s true — that story is exactly as true as his was.”
