Earlier Saturday, Trump slammed late-night comedians for their "unfunny and repetitive material" and suggested Republicans should receive "equal time" in response.

"Late Night host[s] are dealing with the Democrats for their very 'unfunny' & repetitive material, always anti-Trump!" Trump tweeted. "Should we get Equal Time?"

"More and more people are suggesting that Republicans (and me) should be given Equal Time on T.V. when you look at the one-sided coverage?" he added.

Trump’s tweets came about an hour after Fox News's "Fox and Friends" aired a segment accusing late-night comedians like Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon of "[taking] a hard turn to the left."

Kimmel has been critical of Trump and Republicans in recent months. Last month, he became the public face of opposition to the Graham-Cassidy bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare.

And on Thursday, Kimmel railed against Trump for his attacks on NBC News, saying “no breathing human on the planet Earth produces more fake news than Donald Trump.”
