"The clock is ticking on Donald Trump," Jimmy Kimmel said during the Thursday, March 23, monologue of his show. "Trump's lawyers reportedly told him if he gets indicted in New York, he should be prepared to lose the case, which means he'll spend the next three years claiming he won the case."

"We are now on day 3 of 'to catch a president,'" he quipped.

Trump has claimed his innocence multiple times, most recently through posts on his Social Truth platform, and Kimmel read some of his words to the audience.

The Apprentice producer called Michael Cohen a "nut job," but the 2023 Academy Awards host pointed out that the "convicted nut job with zero credibility is his former lawyer, fixer and closest confidante for more than 10 years ... who was only convicted because he did something illegal for Donald Trump."

The TV star couldn't help but laugh at the thought that Trump thinks "the country is going to fight a civil war over him" for his tryst.

According to the funny man, the father-of-five's campaign has raised over $1.5 million in donations to support him, which Kimmel joked is "almost enough to pay off 12 more" adult film stars.
