Jimmy Kimmel says Trump could learn from 'Sesame Street,' 'Schoolhouse Rock'

Jimmy Kimmel says Trump could learn from 'Sesame Street,' 'Schoolhouse Rock'

Allen, who's previously spoken out about Hollywood being "hypocritical", told Megyn Kelly on Fox News previous year that he finds it "odd" that Hollywood didn't like Trump because he was a bully.

"You've got to be real careful around here", Allen added.

Jimmy Kimmel opened his monologue Thursday night ridiculing President Donald Trump's budget proposal - from its policy agenda to its conspicuously long title, "America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again".

"This is like 30s Germany", the "Last Man Standing" and "Home Improvement" star said. I don't know what, I don't know what happened.

And yet, here's how Deadline.com headlined their story: "Tim Allen Compares Being A Conservative In Hollywood To '30s Germany".

If there's one thing you'll rarely find in Hollywood it's a conservative or even just a mere Republican for that matter.

Allen now stars in Last Man Standing on ABC and will be presenting his "kooky" takes on politics, history, and sexuality at the Mirage in Las Vegas on April 8.

The actor's comments appeared to reference the fact that Hollywood is known for being predominantly left-leaning politically. Aside from maybe Vince Vaughan and Mel Gibson giving a scowling look to Meryl Streep during her Golden Globes speech, most of Hollywood is super liberal and very anti Donald Trump. "He says a lot of stupid stuff but what he can do, he should do". He said at the time that he learned so much from "Sesama Street" like how to eat cookies.

"You get bullied into a position, but I don't want to defend the guy", Allen explained. But if you had any inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. "I took my kid to a gay pride parade on accident!" bit probably showed up in a hack comic's set a few days later.
