Politics may be hard to follow, but not when they are involved Star Wars .

Jimmy Kimmel tackled the Michael Flynn scandal at Jimmy Kimmel Live Friday night doing just that.

Flynn, Donald Trump's former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his communication with Russia on Friday.

To help explain, Kimmel showed a clip of Star Wars: Episode VI – The Return of the Jedi .

"So, you see Luke Skywalker being electrocuted on the floor? Well, Luke represents Robert Mueller, Darth Vader represents Michael Flynn and Emperor Palpatine shooting lightning from his fingers, that's Donald Trump," he explained. . "Flynn used to take orders from Trump, but his loyalty has now been reversed and so he could be about to pick up Trump and throw him by the Death Star."

He added that now Americans just wait for "the other shoe to drop."

"Unfortunately, since it's the Trump family, that shoe is made in China, so it could be a while," he joked. .

Trevor Noah also joined Flynn's jokes on Friday.

The presenter of Daily Show created a Yule record for his audience that featured scenes from the Republican National Convention where Flynn led a "confinement" "Canto in reference to then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. [19659011] "We say it because if I, a guy who knows this business, if I did one tenth of what she did, I'd be in jail today," he says in the clip (now somewhat ironic).
