"Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Thursday night mocked President Trump's budget proposal, which includes big cuts for public broadcasting, with a "The Celebrity Apprentice" parody that featured the president telling Big Bird, "You're fired."
Trump "has already started clearing house at PBS," Kimmel said as he discussed the budget.
The show then cut to an altered clip from an episode of "Apprentice" with "Sesame Street" character Big Bird across the board room table from Trump.
"I say, you're fired," the president says in the clip.
"You're a quitter and Star Jones kicked your ass whether you like it or not," Trump says. Jones was in the 2011 season of "The Celebrity Apprentice."
"I guess we have to find a new place to live," Big Bird says, defeated.
"That's too bad, but that's the way it goes," Trump replies.
"Before he gets rid of ‘Sesame Street,’ I think we should make the president watch it a couple of times," Kimmel told his audience.
"That show teaches so many things he needs to know: which thing is bigger than the other, how to spell, the importance of telling the truth and sharing, listening to others. Maybe throw in some ‘Schoolhouse Rock,’ and he can find out how government works. Let’s get on that.”
Kimmel also took issue with "the guy who has three oil paintings of himself in his bathroom" eliminating the National Endowment for the Arts.
He similarly knocked the president for defunding Meals on Wheels, while continuing his frequent weekend visits to his private resort in West Palm Beach, Florida.
"How can you cut Meals on Wheels?" Kimmel asked. "Meals on Wheels is out, but don’t worry, the golf trips to Mar-a-Lago every weekend, those will not stop."
Trump has received backlash from Democrats and many outside groups for his proposed budget, which cuts 19 programs entirely, and includes significant budget cuts to other agencies in order to spend more on defense.
