Jimmy Kimmel Slams Trump’s “Raving Lunatic” Review of Rihanna’s Halftime Show

Jimmy Kimmel doesn’t have time for any Rihanna slander, particularly when it comes from Donald Trump. On Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live, the late-night host devoted much of his monologue to breaking down the 2023 Super Bowl, including Trump’s harsh criticism of Rihanna’s halftime show, where the star announced her second pregnancy. He began by referring to Trump’s assessment as “a raving lunatic of a review from old pigskin himself.” 

Trump called RiRi’s first live performance in five years an “EPIC FAIL” on his fledgeling social media platform Truth Social, adding, “Rihanna gave, without question, the single worst Halftime Show in Super Bowl history—This after insulting far more than half of our Nation, which is already in serious DECLINE, with her foul and insulting language. Also, so much for her ‘Stylist!’”

Kimmel noted the hypocrisy in Trump’s moral high ground. “That’s right, Captain Pussy Grabber was offended by the language,” he said, referring to the former president’s Access Hollywood hot mic moment. “Is it possible that Trump is the bitch that owes her that money?” the host continued. “I don’t know where this comes from. The only part of the halftime show he liked was that all the dancers wore white hoods.”

In the past, there’s been no love on the brain between Trump and Rihanna. Ahead of the Super Bowl, Trump said that the nine-time Grammy winner has “NO TALENT” and would be “NOTHING” without her “‘stylist’” via his platform on Tuesday. And the feelings appear to be mutual. Back in her 2019 Vogue cover story, Rihanna said of Trump: “The most mentally ill human being in America right now seems to be the president.”
