Fresh off his Twitter tangle with Alabama’s Roy Moore, Jimmy Kimmel took aim at the guilty plea submitted Friday by former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and related it all to Star Wars.

Kimmel stated that while Jared Kushner is officially the worst son-in-law since Pauly Shore made a movie of the same name in 1993, he also knows Flynn’s flip could be confusing. So, he broke it down Star Wars style.

He’s got Robert Mueller as Luke Skywalker, and if you consider who Kimmel imagines as Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine, it all begins to make a little more sense.

Watch Kimmel’s take below.
