Donald Trump on Jimmy Kimmel May 2016

Donald Trump Actually Admitted That He's Been Full of Sh*t

Likely GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! to talk about all things related to his campaign — including agreeing to debate Bernie Sanders ahead of the California primary on June 7. His comments set off a firestorm, with #BernieTrumpDebate trending on both Twitter and Facebook.

But perhaps the most underrated highlight of his appearance was when he admitted he's been full of sh*t. Kimmel confronted Trump about the time he said he thought Hillary Clinton would make an excellent president in 2008.

Here's the exchange:

Trump: Let me just explain to you. I will tell you, when I am a businessman . . . I speak well of everybody. If people ask me about politicians, I speak well. So when they ask me about Hillary, "She's wonderful," the husband, everybody's wonderful. And that's the way it is, including contributions. They ask me for contributions, I give contributions.

Kimmel: So you were full of sh*t when you said that?

Trump: A little bit. Maybe a little bit. Maybe.

Watch the clip.

While it's not an outright admission of lying, that same rationale could be applied to other areas of Trump's campaign, like when he denied posing as his own publicist despite evidence to the contrary.

Trump's not the only presidential candidate to make a talk show appearance this week. Clinton went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where she bashed Trump for his treatment of women.
