Watch Jimmy Kimmel's Hilarious Spoof on Trump's 'Poorly-Educated' Supporters

After winning the Nevada Republican caucuses, Donald Trump used his victory speech to show his affection for the poorly educated among his fan base.

"We won the evangelicals,” Trump said. “We won with young. We won with old. We won with highly educated. We won with poorly educated—I love the poorly educated.”

In response, late night host Jimmy Kimmel unveiled a totally fake, but pretty spot-on campaign ad created by Trump’s uneducated—and proud of it!—supporters.

These champions of Trump believe the U.S. needs a “leeder,” a president who will take on the “terists” and lock down the “Mexico/Merica” border.

Sure, it’s a gag, but with 20 percent of Trump backers going on record with their belief that that slavery was a good thing this country gave up on way too soon, it’s probably not so far off the mark.

For April's bookshelf we take a cue from Earth Day and step back to look at the bigger picture. It wasn't climate change that motivated people to attend the teach-ins and protests that marked that first observance in 1970; it was pollution, the destruction of wild lands and habitats, and the consequent deaths of species.
