Normally on the fence, Jimmy Kimmel has been more and more forthright with his political opinions since the Trump administration assumed office in January. After opening up during this emotional monologue a few months back, the host now introduces a special edition of Mean Tweets featuring supporters of the President.

The tweets in question were aimed at Kimmel after he — like many others — spoke out on the tragic scenes in Charlottesville over the weekend. While his words were undeniably reasonable, they appeared to hit a nerve for some.

“Last night on our show, if you missed it, I had a message for those who voted for Donald Trump,” Kimmel said. "I explained that I understood why they did it, but encourage those of them who deep down feel like now they look back and they made a mistake, to just admit it and move on,

"And I have to say, I think it might have worked; I really think I made a breakthrough. And I base that on the thoughtful responses that I got on Twitter and Facebook from people like Thomas, who wrote, ‘Why don’t you go somewhere like a different country if you don’t like our president and stop you’re [sic] crying on tv snowflake.’"

Thomas, however, wasn't an isolated case, with many others puzzlingly upset. Watch the footage above, and then see the original monologue for yourself below.
