Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel mashed up clip of U.S. President Donald Trump’s recent announcement of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's killing and former President Obama’s 2011 announcement of the death of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

The clip quickly went viral and racked up more than 8 million views by Wednesday morning. 

“When Obama went on TV to announce he killed bin Laden, he spoke for 9 ½ minutes. Trump, yesterday, did 48 minutes on this. And for further comparison, we thought it might be fun to mash up Trump’s speech about al-Baghdadi with Obama’s about bin Laden,” Kimmel said introducing the clip. “And we were right. It was.” 

The clip includes crack lines like Trump saying, “They did a lot of shooting, and they did a lot of blasting, even not going through the front door,” 

Trump continues. "You know, you would think you go through the door. If you’re a normal person, you say, ‘Knock, knock. May I come in?’”

“After a fire fight, they killed Osama bin Laden and took custody of his body,” Obama says.

“He died like a dog,” Trump says. “His death does not mark the end of our effort,” Obama continues. 

“A beautiful dog, a talented dog,” Trump says.
