Harrison Ford Appears to Call Trump a 'Son of a B***h' on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

An amped-up Harrison Ford appeared to refer to President Donald Trump as a "son of a b***h" on Monday's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Ford, 77, was promoting his new movie The Call of the Wild, prompting host Jimmy Kimmel to mock up a poster featuring quotes attributed to one Donald J. Trump, among them: "That was a perfect call." The puns, of course, are a reference to the president's call with Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskiy last summer which prompted a recent impeachment investigation.

Ford was visibly tickled by Kimmel's poster. He laughed and appeared to say, "that's the first thing that sum-b***h has done for me, ever," a colloquial contraction of "son of a b***h." (The Daily Beast website reported Ford saying "son of a b***h.)

Ford took a further swipe at Trump when Kimmel mentioned fellow guest "Science Bob" Pflugfelder. "Speaking of science ... out the door. We don't believe in science anymore," said the Star Wars actor.

Last week, promoting The Call of the Wild in Mexico City, Mexico, Ford spoke out about immigration and climate change, though he did not directly name Trump.

According to HuffPost, the actor said that "science is being denigrated ... science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds. They are refusing the wisdom, the discipline of science in favor of a political point of view and that has to stop."

"I consider the threat of the natural world as the single biggest threat to humanity," Ford said.

Ford also said the U.S.'s "position in the world is tenuous because of our lack of moral leadership. We lost some of our credibility in the world and we are anxious to regain it."

On the subject of immigration, the actor added: "We need to invite people into the country, not keep them out. This is the history of America, it depends on immigration."

In 2018, at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, Ford spoke about the urgency of addressing climate change, saying it is the "greatest moral crisis of our time" and "we are s**t out of time."

Ford, speaking before the 2018 U.S. midterm elections, appeared to take aim at the Trump administration's attitude to climate change, adding: "Stop giving power to people who don't believe in science, or worse than that, pretend they don't believe in science for their own self-interest."
