Jimmy Kimmel Breaks Down Donald Trump’s Inauguration ExpensesWith few legislative accomplishments under his belt, President Donald Trump has repeatedly turned to executive orders ― a tool once maligned by Republicans ― to undo much of former President Barack Obama’s regulatory legacy. While some have been consequential ― like approving the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline ― many of Trump’s orders have been symbolic, like one minimizing the “burden” of Obamacare regulations. Trump appears to enjoy the act of signing executive orders and bills more than any of his recent predecessors. While other presidents have also ceremoniously signed documents, Trump regularly holds up his work for photo opportunities.

After reports that President Donald Trump raised a record $107 million for his inauguration, Jimmy Kimmel itemized the expenses on his show Wednesday.

Let’s see, there was the $2.50 for former President George W. Bush’s uncooperative poncho. And we shouldn’t forget the $57 for the mini-bible “to make Trump’s hands look big.”

See what else made Kimmel’s comically altered list.
