Jimmy Kimmel mocked President Donald Trump’s phone call to Georgia’s secretary of state with footage of a toddler having a tantrum while playing golf.  

Trump demanded the state’s Republican election chief Brad Raffensperger “find” him enough votes to overturn the election-result, in a recording released by the Washington Post.

The late-night host called the president’s attempts to overturn his defeat “pathetic” and labeled him the “weakest, whiniest little dictator imaginable”.

Kimmel also urged his viewers to listen to the hour-long call.

In the spoof clip, a superimposed Trump claims, without evidence, to have won the 2020 presidential election.

The figure later jumps up and down then rolls around on the golf course after the audio of Raffensperger confirming that ballots were not shredded was played.

During the call, officials told Trump that Joe Biden’s 11,779-vote victory in Georgia was fair and accurate, and the outgoing president’s claims were based on a number of false conspiracy theories.

Social media users reacted to the clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Others referenced some of the president’s favourite expressions.

And one fan brought up the Trump campaign’s infamous post-election press conference.

The president’s phone call followed the announcement that 12 senators and at least 140 members of Congress plan to challenge the electoral college results.
