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.
