Kimmel said late Monday that the president’s tweet about the Trump Tower meeting could “potentially land his son in prison,” noting it contradicted past statements made by the president and his son, who has said that the 2016 meeting was about Russian adoptions.

“It’s nice that even on vacation the president finds time to incrimi-tweet his son — his ‘wonderful son,’ I should say,” the late-night host joked.

Trump on Sunday pushed back against reports that he was concerned about Trump Jr.’s legal fate over the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, and confirmed that it was held to seek damaging information on Hillary Clinton.
