Jimmy Kimmel asks George W. Bush if he was jealous of Trump’s inauguration crowd

THE WEEK

Jimmy Kimmel pressed former President George W. Bush with the tough questions on Thursday night. Chief among them: “Were you jealous of the size of the crowds at Trump’s inauguration?” Kimmel wanted to know.

The inquiry elicited a good laugh from Bush. “I was there,” Bush said — a skillful dodge, as he might not want to upset Trump with the facts. An estimated 300,000 people attended Bush’s first inauguration while estimates for Trump’s inauguration clocked in around 250,000, although Trump claimed 1.5 million people were in attendance.
