In his latest late-night segment, Jimmy Kimmel took a humorous jab at the recent GOP debate in Miami, where notable Republican figures including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, and Vivek Ramaswamy gathered.

Kimmel wittily referred to the participants as "dopefuls" instead of hopefuls, highlighting their perceived slim chances against Donald Trump in the presidential race.

Kimmel remarked on the absurdity of holding these debates without Trump, the frontrunner, likening it to a scenario that's gone "sideways."

He quipped, "You know things have gone sideways when you’re watching something and you think, ‘God, I wish Donald Trump was there.’”

In a comedic twist, Kimmel presented a mock debate featuring Trump battling against himself, humorously suggesting this would be "Melania's worst nightmare come true."

The segment also touched upon Trump's latest legal developments in New York, continuing Kimmel's trend of combining humor with political commentary in his monologues.
