Jimmy Kimmel Compares Donald Trump to… Taylor Swift?!?

Note to Jimmy Kimmel:

Hasn't Taylor Swift been through enough of late?

Isn't it sufficient that her wildly anticipated new studio album sort of tanked? Or that she was snubbed by the MTV Video Music Awards?

Did you really need to drag her name so deeply through the mud by comparing her to President Donald Trump?

This unexpected statement came during Kimmel's monologue on Wednesday night, as he mocked Trump for how he handled his press conference with Vladimir Putin.

How he's handled America's entire relationship with Russia, really.

"It’s all very crazy. And yet, with all of this Moscow madness happening, according to a new poll from Reuters, 71 percent of Republican voters have a favorable view of how Trump has been dealing with Russia," Kimmel said, adding:

"Which is nuts, but I was thinking about this today and I think there’s a simple explanation for it."

This was his explanation:

"They might not like what he’s doing, they might not like him, but they love how pissed off it makes Democrats and so they want it to keep happening," he reasoned.

Kimmel is not the first person to basically say Trump and his base care more about owning the liberals than anything else.

But he is the first person, as far as we know, to then say Trump is akin to Swift.

"Trump kept his base going — by calling out his ‘haters’ today on Twitter," Kimmel said. "He’s the Taylor Swift of treason. He really is."

The Taylor Swift of treason. LOL.

This were the Tweets to which Kimmel was referring:

"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki. Putin and I discussed many important subjects at our earlier meeting. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!"

"Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russia. They would rather go to war than see this. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome!"

Swift is yet to respond to this semi-dig.

Kimmel, meanwhile, wasn't done with Trump.

"If it is a syndrome named after Trump, I assume it's sexually transmitted," Kimmel quipped. "Fortunately help is on the way."

Taylor Swift Fans Fire Back at MTV: You Snubbed Our Girl!

Excuse Taylor Swift supporters, MTV.

They’re gonna let you finish promoting your upcoming Video Music Awards, but first they have something to say:

You suck! Our girl rules! And you totally snubbed her!

Earlier this week, MTV announced its long list of nominees for this year’s VMAs, which will air live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

And Swift was included on this list.

But the singer only received only three nominations: best art direction, best visual effects and best editing for her “Look What You Made Me Do” video.

For Taylor Swift? Someone who has dominated this exact ceremony for years and someone often considered the most successful solo artist of all-time?

Three lowly nominations, especially for a video that marked her musical comeback, was simply stunning and unacceptable to her loyal fans.

This debut single and video from Swift’s “Reputation” album was much heralded and anticipated because Swift had been almost entirely silent for a year prior to its release.

There’s no way she can’t be disappointed by its reception.

Using the hashtag “VmasAreOverParty,” many Internet users made it abundantly clear that they assuredly are.

“EXCUSE ME?” asked one Instagram commentator after the nominations were confirmed, addressing the account @vmas and adding:

“Taylor Swift did not just bathe in diamonds, drag other artists, use a plane, rode a motorcycle, bring back her old personalities, serve us amazing choreo, and break the 24 hour Vevo record for you to just snub her like that.

“she clearly had the video of the year.”

Others agree:

If you remember, Swift disappeared for several months after being called out as a phony and a liar by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

She returned last August in classic Taylor Swift form, calling out Kim and Kanye and her numerous other critics via the aforementioned video and song.

Some folks adored the revenge-themed track, as you can tell from the posts above.

But others have grown tired of Taylor’s act, wishing she would stop playing the victim and stop using every little slight as the basis for her albums.

It’s actually a somewhat interesting debate.

As for the singers who beat Swift out in the lead categories at this year’s VMAs? Here’s a rundown…

Ariana Grande — “No Tears Left to Cry”
Bruno Mars ft. Cardi B — “Finesse (Remix)”
Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug — “Havana”
The Carters — “APES**T”
Childish Gambino — “This Is America”
Drake — “God’s Plan”
