He continued, "We have two maniacs with nuclear warheads bragging about who has the bigger button!" But there was another tweet from Trump 's feed that Kimmel wanted to address, one that he found even more ludicrous than the president aimlessly flirting with nuclear warfare.

We have two maniacs with nuclear warheads bragging about who has the bigger button.” Kimmel also went after one of Trump 's earlier tweets, in which he seemed to take credit for the fact that there were no deaths in commercial aviation last year.

Jimmy Kimmel used his first monologue of 2018 to slam Donald Trump ’s many, many tweets posted Tuesday. Kimmel , 50, pointed out that “ maniac ” Trump , 71 Kimmel laughed, “Happy New Year, everybody! We have two maniacs with nuclear warheads bragging about who has the bigger button.”

Since taking office I have been very strict on Commercial Aviation,” Trump wrote. “Good news – it was just reported that there were Zero deaths in 2017, the best and safest year on record!”

“Not since Harrison Ford was president [in the 1997 film Air Force One] have you felt so protected on a plane,” Kimmel said. “What’s funny, he clearly didn’t even read the report which was about commercial aviation around the world. I don’t know if he thinks he’s president of the world now, but if we’re talking about the United States, it’s true there were no deaths in commercial aviation in 2017, which is great.”

Although, Kimmel pointed to what various media outlets have already reported, that the last fatality in the U.S. from commercial aviation long predated Trump’s presidency — it was in 2009 when Colgan Air Flight 3407 crashed on its way to Buffalo, New York. “Thank you, President Trump, for being so effective. You actually went back in time to approve flight safety,” Kimmel mocked.
