Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel called out President TrumpDonald John TrumpMcConnell to meet with Trump's Supreme Court pick Tuesday Kavanaugh offers lengthy judicial record ahead of bitter confirmation fight Hundreds protest Kavanaugh's nomination outside Supreme Court MORE on Monday for statements he made about a previous encounter, saying that "it's weird to hear him tell a lie that specifically involves you".

"It was a bad pinata, it wasn't even shaped like anything, just a rectangle with four dogs on it, one of which was Chase - that's her favorite dog, Chase", he explains.

"Right!" Kimmel said with a laugh. "The text said Donald Trump just attacked you at a rally".

But later, Jane was actually saddened by the pinata of Chase being smashed.

"For the record, not only was I not on the sidewalk waiting for him, opening the door to his auto, I didn't even go to his dressing room to say hello before the show", Kimmel continued.

"That never happened", Kimmel states in the video above. I was, like, a guy. "A guy with potential".

"A couple days into the trip, the guy who had the phone gets a text from my wife, and I was anxious", Kimmel explained. "I never do. In 15 years, I probably, I don't know, I've done it like seven times".

"For the record, not only was I not on the sidewalk waiting for him opening the door to his vehicle - I didn't even go to his dressing room to say hello before the show", he said, adding that he doesn't like to greet guests behind the scenes and then again during the taping. Kimmel insists that he'd "feel dumb" greeting people twice, and his practice makes the actual greeting appear fresher, but logic did not prevail with Trump's tall tale. "But look at what's going on out there".

Mr. Kimmel then told a joke about what really happened when Mr. Trump showed up at the studio.

What do you think of Kimmel's response?
