Former President Donald Trump did not deliver a speech at his 18-year-old son Barron Trump's high school graduation ceremony last week. However, on Monday, late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel offered a humorous imagining of what Donald Trump might have said if he had taken to the stage.

Jimmy Kimmel's segment was a playful take on the kind of speech the presumptive GOP nominee could have delivered. This came after Donald Trump was granted permission by Judge Juan Merchan to attend the event. Judge Merchan is overseeing Trump's hush money trial in New York.

Prior to this, Trump had publicly expressed frustration, claiming he was being banned from attending the ceremony, even though Merchan had not yet made a final decision. In a comedic segment, Jimmy Kimmel's team compiled and edited some of Trump's most memorable and "inspirational" moments into a fictional speech.

The result was a wild and exaggerated address that culminated in a chilling declaration from Donald Trump: "The American Dream is dead."

Jimmy Kimmel's Imagined Speech

The imagined speech played on Donald Trump's well-known speaking style, marked by its bombast and self-aggrandizement.

By editing together various statements from Trump, Kimmel's team crafted a narrative that was both entertaining and reflective of the former president's unique approach to public speaking. The segment was part of Kimmel's ongoing commentary on political events and personalities, which has become a staple of his late-night show.

It provided a satirical look at what might have been a memorable moment if Donald Trump had indeed delivered a speech at his son's graduation. For those interested in watching the segment, Kimmel's team suggests tuning in from the 3:50 mark of the episode, where the imagined speech begins.

This creative exercise not only showcased Jimmy Kimmel's comedic talents but also offered viewers a lighthearted take on the ongoing saga surrounding Donald Trump and his family's public appearances.
