Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel fired back at President TrumpDonald John TrumpLawmakers release defense bill with parental leave-for-Space-Force deal House Democrats expected to unveil articles of impeachment Tuesday Houston police chief excoriates McConnell, Cornyn and Cruz on gun violence MORE during his show over the president's jab at the Academy Awards' record low TV ratings.

The "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host mocked the president with a reference to the Oscar-winning drama "The Shape of Water," which Kimmel said related to the president's "life story."


“Trump always has a problem with the Academy Awards, which is surprising because I really think he would love the best picture winner, ‘The Shape of Water,’" Kimmel, who hosted the Oscars, joked.

"The movie, if you haven’t seen it, it’s about a monster who has sex with a woman who can’t talk about it. Basically, it’s like his life story. Right?"

Kimmel also addressed a tweet from Trump Tuesday morning in which the president attacked the "lowest rated Oscars in HISTORY."

"Problem is, we don’t have Stars anymore - except your President (just kidding, of course)!” the president added.

"So I tweeted to him, 'thanks, lowest rated president in HISTORY,'" Kimmel said, to cheers.

"I want to point out, my tweet got twice as many likes as his tweet got," he added.

Kimmel, a vocal critic of the president, took numerous shots at Trump and his administration during Sunday night's Academy Awards broadcast in Los Angeles.

“None other than President Trump called ‘Get Out’ the best first three-quarters of a movie this year," Kimmel joked Sunday.

“Out of the nine best picture nominees, only two made more than $100 million. That’s not the point. We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money.
