How to Stop Trump From Tweeting: Send President All Your Fidget Spinners, Pleads Jimmy Kimmel

Late-night TV talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has a plan to stop President Donald Trump's angry-tweeting.

On Thursday, the president tweeted that the U.S. government cannot support hurricane-hit Puerto Rico “forever.”

“We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!” Trump said.

Well, the thing about that, Kimmel pointed out, is that “it’s been three weeks. He has hemorrhoids that last longer than that.”

Kimmel said he does not understand Trump’s apparent disdain for Puerto Rico, adding: “80 percent of Puerto Rico doesn’t have power and he’s tapping on his watch. I think the only way to get Donald Trump to care about what’s happening there is to add a hot Puerto Rican lady to Fox & Friends.”

Kimmel observed that Trump does “most of his angry-tweeting” early in the morning, and so he has come up with a strategy to keep the president’s fingers busy and away from his phone.

“I gave this a lot of thought,” he began. “[His tweeting] is dangerous.

“The plan is this: A fidget spinner,” Kimmel said, pulling one out of his pocket.

“What I would like you to do is, go in your kids’ rooms, grab all their fidget spinners and send them to this address,” Kimmel said, before jokingly reading out the address for the White House.

In case you don’t know it and want to oblige Kimmel’s request, that address is: 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20500, USA.

“Or better yet,” Kimmel then quipped, “send them to his real address—the Mar-a-Lago golf club” in Palm Beach, Florida.

Kimmel joked: “Let’s do everything we can to keep those little fingers busy. Let’s give him something less destructive to do. Sorry, kids, but your country needs these.”

Ah, Kimmel, always a man of the people.
