Jimmy Kimmel's old pal Jake Byrd (Paris Hilton's #1 fan) is back for the biggest celebrity event of the season -- a Donald Trump rally in Texas.

On Tuesday night's edition of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," the host sent writer/comedian Anthony “Tony” Barbieri to the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas to reprise his character "Jake Byrd" in front of an estimated 15,000 Trump supporters. Posing as a Trump fanatic with a Texas-style "Make America Great Again" cowboy hat, Byrd masterfully mocked Trump supporters.


Byrd, who has hilariously crashed press conferences outside the OJ Simpson trial, Michael Jackson's trial and Paris Hilton's sentencing, interrupted interviews with Trump supporters to offer "Trump stamps," read aloud Trump's "Art of the Deal" and sample Trump cologne.

Byrd even brought his infectious Trump enthusiasm inside the arena to cheer on The Donald in person.
