Jimmy Kimmel Defends Working With Mark Burnett After Blaming ‘The Apprentice’ Producer for Donald Trump

Back in September 2016, Kimmel singled out Burnett during his monologue as the one person at fault for Trump’s campaign. “Thanks to Mark Burnett, we don’t have to watch reality shows anymore because we’re living in one,” he said. “If Donald Trump gets elected and he builds that wall, the first person we’re throwing over is Mark Burnett.”
