Jimmy Kimmel finds Trump’s speech ‘famous’ after former president’s MLK comparison


On Friday, Jimmy Kimmel joked about former President Donald Trump’s bizarre comparison to Martin Luther King Jr.

Trump, who spoke in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday, compared the size of the crowd during his Jan. 6, 2021 speech to Martin Luther King Jr.’s crowd for his famous “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963.

“The I [Have] a dream speech… a million people, and then I gave my speech [on Jan. 6] and they showed the same,” Trump said, in a clip shared by Kimmel, of the speech leading up to the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“My photos were exactly the same but the people were slightly closer together, they were more compact but exactly the same but there were more people, they were closer together…”

The former president also asked his audience if they were “allowed” to say if his speech was better than King’s.

Kimmel, in a series of clips, compared King’s speech to a Trump speech where the former president mentioned the Space Force.
