The gag order the celeb referenced prevents Trump from publicly attacking Department of Justice Special Counsel Jack Smith, Smith's staff and "court personnel" involved with the case.

After receiving the order, Trump shared a message, saying, "Today really isn’t about gagging me, it’s an attempt to gag the American people.”

To which Kimmel fired back, "No, it's you. We’re still able to say pretty much anything we want.”

Kimmel then brought up the ex-commander-in-chief's Monday, October 16, speech in Iowa, where he claimed he isn't anxious about possibly being locked up.

"They’re getting beaten very badly by me in the polls. They think the only way they can catch me is to stop me from speaking. They want to take away my voice and a judge gave a gag order today. Did you hear that? On speech, which I believe is totally unconstitutional what she did. A judge gave a gag order, a judge doesn’t like me too much," the 77-year-old said during his recent remarks. "Her whole life is not liking me, but she gave a gag order. You know what a gag order is? You can’t speak badly about your opponent. But this is weaponry all being done because Joe Biden is losing the election and losing very, very badly to all of us in the polls. He’s losing badly."

Trump added: “But what they don’t understand is that I am willing to go to jail if that’s what it takes for our country to win and become a democracy again."

Kimmel quipped of the ex-POTUS' words, “Oh, yeah. We understand that. That actually is the plan: You go to jail, and the country becomes a democracy again. I’m glad we’re finally on the same page.”
