Jimmy Kimmel gives federal employees work during Trump's shutdown

Jimmy Kimmel Gives Federal Workers a Job During Government Shutdown

When the White House officially requested airtime on Monday from the broadcast networks, as is customary in these cases, network executives deliberated about it for a few hours. Both Trump and the Democrats have agreed there is a crisis at the border.

"This is day 17 of the government shutdown, almost 800,000 federal employees are working without pay", Kimmel said Monday in slamming "Humpty Trumpty". "It has not been approved by Congress and even if it is, there's no provision there to make Mexico pay for the wall", Stephanopoulos said. While Trump issued scary warnings about murders by immigrants, Smith said, "Statistics show that there is less violent crime by the undocumented immigrant population than by the general population".

"Border crossings are at a 45-year low", she reminded. Fox News fact-checked his claims about immigration and drugs that he made during the address.

Fox News anchor Shepard Smith challenged many of Trump's claims by using the government's own numbers.

None of the networks used chyrons, or onscreen text, to rebut Trump while he was talking.

Perhaps giving a better sense of how America gets its news, the Pelosi and Schumer double act crushed Trump by 26% on CNN and 15% on MSNBC.

Trump's narrative about the southern border "really is fiction". That prompted a bitter exchange between the two.

"The big networks went back and forth on whether or not they would air it", Kimmel said.

As of Tuesday morning, all the major cable and broadcast networks have confirmed that they will carry the Democratic speech. "But much of the debate centered around whether or not it is appropriate to give the president a forum to lie to us on television". "He played them, and they let them do it".

In the unadjusted fast affiliates, CBS snagged the most viewers for Trump's speech with an audience of 8.04 million.
