Jimmy Kimmel is unabashed in his affection and admiration for “King of All Media” Howard Stern. The younger host credits Stern rightly as a trailblazer whose influence on contemporary media personalities is ludicrously large. (Stern’s stamp showed up everywhere last year, including the presidential election.) But Kimmel doesn’t agree with Stern on everything. Discussing Donald Trump‘s now controversial resort in Palm Beach — the Mar-a-Lago — Kimmel disagreed with Stern’s characterization of the place as “___ heaven.” (That missing word is for SiriusXM subscriber ears only!)
Kimmel doesn’t think Mar-a-Lago is so heavenly. The late night TV host with the mean tweets and calm, cool demeanor said he thought it kind of sucked. (Not his words, but a summary there.) Not a bad piece of real estate, according to Kimmel, but sadly filled with “a lot of very old rich people.” Despite the fact that with any luck, the already rich Kimmel will become old and join this tier of society, he doesn’t dig it now. “If you could clear all those people out,” Kimmel said, Mar-a-Lago could be great. Kimmel would also presumably get rid of the multitude of framed photos of Donald Trump that grace — is that the right word? — the Mar-a-Lago bathrooms. Those pics, along with framed (mediocre) reviews of Trump’s Apprentice gig, sort of mar the “a Lago” part of the place in Kimmel’s opinion. Stern battled back though, saying the Mar-a-Lago has good barbecue. The whole conversation was about where Donald Trump would end up if his presidency comes to an early end.
