The ABC late-night host proves it's a legitimate challenge for children to spell as poorly as the President of the United States. (Which is a really depressing sentence to type!)
Jimmy Kimmel recruited three of Los Angeles' top young spellers to compete in a nontraditional spelling bee Monday night, effectively demonstrating just how bad President Donald Trump is at spelling simple words on Twitter.
The rules of Kimmel's "Make America Grate Again" spelling bee were simple: For each incorrectly spelled word, the contestant would receive $100. The speller with the most money at the end of the game would be crowned the best worst speller around.
"You're all familiar with spelling bees, but this is not an ordinary spelling bee," the late-night host began. "This spelling bee is presidential, which means you'll be asked to spell the words I give you -- not the way the liberal, leftist dictionary spells them -- but rather the way our president does, President Donald Jesus Trump."
Using POTUS' favorite words to misspell -- including "honered," "tapp," and "rediculous" -- Kimmel challenged these three lucky spellers to unlearn everything they were ever taught in school and get into the mind of the president.
Fortunately for reigning champ Trump, none of these kids came close to topping his stupidity, and he's still America's best worst speller. But there was one contestant who was able to successfully dumb herself down enough to take home the "2018 Presidential Spelling bee Champeon" trophy.
