George W Bush Praises Jimmy Kimmel For His Oscars Monologue!!George W. Bush heaped praise on Jimmy Kimmel for his anti-Trump opening monologue at the Oscars on Thursday night, telling the comedian enthusiastically that his performance was 'damn good'. In a rare and lighthearted television appearance, Bush steered clear of mentioning the current president by name but was led into several subtle jabs at him by his mischievous host.Among the slights was a compliment for Kimmel's decidedly anti-Trump debut at the Academy Awards.'I saw your opening. I thought it was damned good!' he enthused, adding later that Kimmel was a 'funny guy'. The comedian took several blows at President Trump last Sunday as he opened the awards show. First, he joked how he'd made the rest of the world 'hate' America and described a divided country that no one could fix. 'I don’t have to tell anybody, the country is divided right now. I’ve been getting a lot of advice. It’s time to bring people together. You have to say something. Let’s just get something straight off the top. I can’t do that. There’s only one “Braveheart” in the room, and he’s not gonna unite us either. Mel [Gibson], you look great. I think the Scientology is working. I really do,' he joked. He then mocked Trump's assessment of Meryl Streep as one of Hollywood's most 'overrated actresses', sarcastically piling on to her apparent mediocrity.'We are here tonight to honor great actors but we’re also here to honor the actors who seem great, but actually really aren’t. And of all the “great actors” here in Hollywood, one in part has stood the test of time for her many uninspiring and overrated performances.
