In a striking segment on his late-night show, Jimmy Kimmel took a sharp jab at former President Donald Trump over his startling shift on mail-in voting, a method he once vehemently criticized. Jimmy Kimmel, known for his pointed political commentary, showcased an extensive series of clips featuring Donald Trump lambasting mail-in ballots as vehicles for "massive fraud" and corruption.

According to Trump’s previous claims, this method of voting undermined the integrity of the electoral process. However, Trump has changed his tune in a surprising turn of events. Jimmy Kimmel emphasized that Donald Trump is endorsing mail-in voting and actively encouraging his followers to utilize it in upcoming elections.

This pivot is notable, considering mail-in voting was a central point of contention in Trump's spread of election conspiracy theories following his loss in the 2020 presidential race.

Lindell's Comedic Crunch

Adding a comedic twist to the discussion, Jimmy Kimmel quipped about Mike Lindell, the MyPillow CEO and a staunch Donald Trump supporter, known for his vehement opposition to mail-in voting due to alleged election fraud.

“Mike Lindell must be rolling his pillow van in a ditch right now,” Kimmel remarked, highlighting the irony of Lindell's predicament given Trump’s newfound endorsement of the voting method. The reaction - or lack thereof - from Donald Trump's base was another focal point for Jimmy Kimmel.

He criticized the MAGA crowd's passive acceptance of Trump's reversal, pointing out the stark contrast between their previous outrage over mail-in ballots and their current silence. “After all the whining, bitching, complaining, and allegations, Donald Trump would like you to mail your votes in ? and no one bats an eye,” Kimmel observed, underscoring the inconsistency without any attempt at explanation from Trump's camp.
