Kelly simply responds "we don't need to hear that." However, Kimmel clearly disagrees, revealing how "we do need to hear that. preferably on this show. I would be happy to facilitate that. When Stormy Daniels was here, I invited her to pick a carrot. That invitation still stands. By the way, Stormy Daniels has been in probably hundreds adult films. With all that she’s seen, if she, 12 years after the experience, can still describe the president’s genitalia in great detail, that can only mean one thing: in some way or another he has an unusual penis. Maybe it’s bent. Maybe it has spots on it. Maybe it has a little blond toupee on top. But what I do know is America has a right to know this.”

There's no -- she didn't dye eggs, she didn't fill baskets," but instead insists that she spent her time constructing an escape tunnel from her husband. Kimmel then began to mock her using an Eastern European accent, which conservative commentators have begun to claim as being racist.
