Jimmy Kimmel Teamed Up with Fifth Graders to Imagine the First Trumpsgiving

They nailed it.

YouTube

On Tuesday night’s airing of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a group of fifth graders from Mar-a-Lago Palm Beach Day School performed the very first Trumpsgiving. The play, which recreates what America’s first Thanksgiving would have looked like if it took place during the era of President Trump, features hilarious spoofs including a modern-day Mayflower and a cornbread wall.

“Over the last 400 or so years, the story of Thanksgiving hasn’t changed much. We learn it in school and it’s fine, but this year we wanted to spice it up,” comedian Kimmel explained. “So we had a fifth grade class from Florida present for the first time ever, the story of friendship and gratitude known as ‘The First Trumpsgiving.'”

The play opens with the Trump family boarding the Mayflower, which is a private yacht, and embarking on a five-star cruise to Plymouth Rock. But as the tiny Trump plans his hotel and golf course (“it’s going to be yuge!”), the Native Americans arrive, who Trump calls “a caravan of immigrants from South America.”

Then, while the Native Americans prepare for the big feast, the Trump family returns to their yacht to watch Fox and Friends, before showing up to dinner with a cornbread wall, which Trump tells the natives “you’re going to pay for.” And instead of a turkey, Donald Trump Jr. hunts an elephant, mocking the recent big-game trophy controversy.
