Jimmy Kimmel got into it on Twitter over the weekend with the president’s son, so on Monday’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he finished the argument.

Over the weekend, Trump complained in a tweet that late night hosts spent too much time telling repetitive jokes about him, and after Kimmel responded to the tweet, Donald Trump Jr. defended his father’s honor by asking Kimmel about the Harvey Weinstein story that broke last week revealing decades of sexual assault allegations.

Kimmel responded to Don Jr. by calling the Weinstein story “disgusting,” but he also sent him the video of President Trump on an Access Hollywood but talking about how he assaults women.

“Next time you’re defending your father and you think it’s a good idea to draw a comparison between him and a freshly accused sexual predator, don’t. It doesn’t help.”
